Watch: Meet Kayamkulam Kochunni – India’s Own Legendary Robinhood

Rogue, womanizer, bandit, outlaw; these are some of the words used to describe one of Kerala’s legendary heroes, the thief who went by the name of Kayamkulam Kochunni.

There are many versions of the same tale, but every single one of them point to one fact – that Kochunni was just another simpleton, until life carved a new course for him, and he became ‘Kayamkulam Kochunni’.

Throughout his life as a thief, he was pursued relentlessly by the police as well as the government officials of the state. His prowess in the martial art of Kalari helped him evade them.

Hailed as Kerala’s Robinhood, Kochunni was feared by the aristocracy, and loved by the masses.
