Created by Vince Gilligan, Breaking Bad is a cornerstone in the history of US television. The popularity of the show transcended the culture and language barriers.
Starring Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul in the lead roles, Breaking Bad tells the story of an overqualified high-school chemistry teacher. Bryan Cranston's Walter White, however, uses his knowledge in chemistry to produce high-grade meth, a narcotic drug, after he gets diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer. He enters the drug cartel to make some money to secure the future of his family in the aftermath of his impending death, but slowly he grows into a ruthless drug kingpin.
Breaking Bad has been a main source of inspiration for Nelson's filmography. The core plot of his directorial debut movie Kolamaavu Kokila was taken from this hit series. The Tamil movie tells the story of an poor girl, who becomes a drug mule to make money for her mother's cancer treatment.
