Akkare Akkare Akkare (transl. Across across across) is a 1990 Indian Malayalam-language buddy comedy film directed by Priyadarshan and written by Sreenivasan. It is a sequel to 1987's Nadodikkattu and 1988's Pattanapravesham. The story follows Crime Investigation Department (India) C.I.Ds Dasan (Mohanlal) and Vijayan (Sreenivasan) on an investigation for a gold crown stolen to the United States. Other cast include M. G. Soman, Mukesh, Maniyanpilla Raju, Parvathy Jayaram, Nedumudi Venu, Sukumari, Jagadish, and K. P. A. C. Lalitha.
When a priceless gold crown is stolen from India, Ramdas (Mohanlal) and Vijayan (Sreenivasan) are sent to the United States to retrieve it. The only clue they have is the pseudonym "Paul Barber" and a piece of torn black shirt.With these couple of clues, the comic duo embark on the adventure. Their suspicion initially falls on an official at the Indian Embassy Shivadasa Menon (Nedumudi Venu). In the course of time they both meet, and fall in love with a kind hearted Malayalee nurse (Parvathy) working in a local hospital. Their lack of discipline and going incommunicado causes troubles to their superior officer Madras Police Commissioner Krishnan Nair IPS (M. G. Soman) who comes to America in search of them.
Out of serendipity at each step, they end up eliminating the Paul Barber gang, getting felicitated by the American police and return to India with the gold crown, to much pomp at the Madras airport.
