A semi-porn film's success seems to be function of the leading woman's capacity to occupy the entire 70mm screen with her weighted presence. Sleaze lovers in India have always been panting after women of 'substance'. So here again is Shakila, a 'heavyweight' in these kinds of films, with her third release in as many weeks as her fans just don't seem to have enough of her. And though she herself looks jaded, Maami will not leave them disappointed.

Maami is a tactfully made film and serves the purpose it is made for. Tactfully made because it relegates all the seeming amoralities and adulteries of the lead characters to just the fantasies of the rest of the characters around them. Hence, it can proudly boast of being message-driven at least as far as the script goes; the message, in this case, being not to suspect one's wife of any misdemeanor based on an outsider's opinion.

A young Ramu steps into his old uncle Seshadri's house with the aim of learning a computer course in his town. Seshadri has a young wife Seeta (Shakila). He also has a pampered brat of a son from his first marriage, Srikanth, who keeps on screaming at his father for having married a bitch.

A childless Seeta develops motherly affection for Ramu and treats him like her son (which she keeps on harping throughout the film). The rest of the characters, including Seshadri, misunderstand this relationship, and each in turn fantasizes about the two snuggling each other at every possible place. These fantasies meanwhile help the producer of this film cash in some moolah. The otherwise kitsch movie ends on an utterly abrupt note with Seshadri killing a finally pregnant Shakila and committing suicide after he realizes the truth.

Shakila carries this film single-handedly on her rather broad shoulders with her tantalizing overtures and bedroom antics. And I shudder to think for what other reason you would go to watch this film.
