Ever seen a Marathi play? I thought not. In case you have been dying to, all
you have to do is check out this movie. It's got all those itsy-bitsy character
role artists you see in the movies, doing their theater things on the screen.
I think the best definition of this movie would be 'an Indian sex comedy without
the sex'. The double entendres would put Mohan Babu to shame. And the movie's
original name was 'Biwi Naram Padosan Garam'. There is even a title song but all
that changed once madame Sushma Swaraj had something to say about it!
Here's the tale: there is this guy Prashant who gets thrown out of his apartment by the owner for reasons unexplained to the audience. He goes in search of lodgings and finds himself in another apartment building. He's got two girls Madhu and Preeti staying on either side of his apartment, and then you get the 'Carry On' series type of situations with this guy walking in on one of them bathing, etc. This further deteriorates into an Archie-Betty-Veronica scenario and I suppose you could say there is some hilarity to be found, if you look hard enough.
Now, there is a local 'bhai' who adds further masala to the situation. Enter Prashant's wife Seema, and the guy is in more trouble. The 'bhai' falls for Seema and insists on marrying her. Seema has a problem doing 'it', and that's why they were separated. Totally defending MCPism, Madhu and Preeti, once they come to know of the whole situation, actually defend Prashant and justify his sleeping around by saying that he had no other choice! They take it upon themselves to give Seema a sex-ed class. And so on and so forth till it's all's well that ends well.
Must say that the actor who played Prashant did a fairly good job. This is a worker-class
type of comedy with sex jokes all the time. Impossible editing, atrocious dubbing
and some overacting don't exactly do much for the film. This is just a bunch of
actors with a huge theater hangover making a time-pass movie.
