Currency is a 2009 Malayalam crime film by directed by Swathi Bhaskar starring Mukesh, Jayasurya, Kalabhavan Mani and Meera Nandan.
There have been allegations that the film has been inspired from the film The Man Who Copied.
Keshu (Jayasurya) is a school drop-out. An introvert, he is working in a Photocopy store, owned by Indrapalan (Suraj Venjaramood). Keshu is crazy about Rose (Meera Nandan), a sales girl in the nearby boutique.
Keshu often takes Photocopies of currency notes which looks like real, but he fears to spend them. One day he meets Daany D'souza (Mukesh), an Anglo Indian, who realizes the competence of Keshu in creating fake currencies. Danny forces him to continue with his act. Danny gets the information that a popular party in Kerala is bringing 10 crores of rupees to Kerala from Bangalore by road. Danny makes a scene with the help of some rowdies and cleverly replaces the 10 crore real notes with fake ones. They hides the real notes in a slum under the supervision of Iruttu (Kalabhavan Mani).
When the political party starts spending the money, police gets the information and an Intelligence Bureau officer played by Anoop Menon starts investigating. In the mean time, Keshu's mom gets admitted in the hospital and Keshu immediately wants 25,000 to pay in the hospital. They goes to Iruttu to take the money. There a fight erupts between Danny and Keshu. Iruttu, taking advantage of the situation, goes greedy and tries to take all the money by killing them. But Keshu hits Iruttu in the head and they escapes with the money.
Iruttu takes Rose as hostage and asks Keshu to return the money. Keshu pays the money and Iruttu escapes with it. But he was soon captured by the police and thus Danny and Keshu escapes the charges.
