    Today I visited Hanwell Community Centre in Ealing to take in the sights of the opening scene where Derek Trotter- ‘Del Boy’ and Rodney Trotter meet Vimmal Malik, Mr Ram and Oddjob.

    The car park is surprisingly small but the pillars are still intact with their black base nearly Fourty Years later.

    I went inside and the doors have changed and inside I saw a football pitch close to the entrance for kids to play football.

    I took my Kuvera statue, Only Fools and Horses DVD Collection and Renu Setna autograph with me and i believe i am the first Only Fools and Horses fan to bring Kuvera’s statue to the location of the original opening scene of Cash and Curry some Fourty Years later!

    40 Years ago today this episode was shown on 22nd September 1981. I was looking into Kuvera and the Hindu trinity and noticed the statue’s face really does look like Kuvera in images online.

    I own Mr Ram – Renu Setna autograph which is available on the Only Fools and Horses shop. I am well chuffed to own his autograph!

    Has anyone noticed that when Del and Rodney flog all their stock from their garage to raise the £2000 to give to Vimmal Malik it must have included the John Harrison timepiece which was found in Del and Rodney’s garage in ‘Time on our Hands’. Therefore Del and Rodney should never have become millionaires!

    It is 40 years ago today that this great classic episode of Cash and Curry in Only Fools and Horses was broadcast! I have been researching Kuvera so has anyone noticed that the statue of Kuvera really does look like Kuvera!

    Vimmal Malik’s flat clearly has the door number 9 on it meaning the hostel he stays at is incredibly small if flat 9 is on the top floor.

    Did you know In Cash and Curry the hostel Vimmal stays at is the same hostel Raquel stays at in Dates.

    Acorrding to the website IMBD The actor who portrays Mr. Rham’s bodyguard, “Oddjob”, is uncredited and remains unknown.

    does anyone have any information on him anywhere?

    • Rich says:

      Don’t know if this helps but the Wiki page for cash and curry credits Roy Questel as “oddjob”. Can’t find any further info on him though.

    Watched this episode again today – in the car scene at the end when the 2 scam artists are laughing their heads off (that they got away with it) is that a different actor playing Vimmel in the car?

    because the Vimmel that’s in the car, is slightly fatter in the face, not as dark skinned as the Vimmel we see in his house (didn’t mean that in a racist way) and his voice is just a hint different.

    anyone else spotted this?

    With regards to the episode “Cash and Curry”, I think I have found another goof. At the end when Vimmel and Mr Ram are in the car mocking Del Boy, Mr Ram imitiates Del by saying “Me old Mucker”. Yet if you watch this episode carefully, you will notice that Del only uses this expression several times in front of Vimmel and never in front of Mr Ram, so how can Mr Ram know that Del was in the habit of saying “Me old Mucker” ?

    • Adz says:

      Possibly by them communicating between themselves. It is possible for Vimmel to have mentioned to Mr Ram that Del used that expression
