Rama Shama Bhama
Kamal Haasan, Ramesh Aravind
Cartoonist Rama (Ramesh) meets a vivacious Priya (Daisy Bopanna) and he is attracted to her and soon their friendship turns into an affair. Rama is married to Bhama (Urvasi), and has two children but lies to Priya that he is a bachelor. Trouble begins when he meets his buddy Dr Shyam (Kamal Haasan) and his wife Shanthi (Shruthi) at the airport on the way to Goa for a holiday.
But soon Bhama and Rama?s dad comes to know about Priya and the couple split. Rama prefers to stay with Priya in the house that he brought for her. Bhama the conservative wife turns courageous and sends her children, their pet dog, cow, and father-in-law to Rama's house. Priya?s privacy and beautiful apartment turns into a hell and she packs everyone back.
Soon Priya meets her ex-boy friend Raja and the rest of the film is about how Bhama and Dr Shyam work out a plan to bring Rama back to his wife and children. RSB, a remake of the Tamil film Sathi Leelavathi (later remade in Hindi as Biwi No 1), is a lot different from its original in terms of narration and the treatment of the story.
Kamal Hassan has scored full marks with Hubli- Dharwad accent and perfect histrionics required for a comedy riot. The hilarious scenes at the airport toilet, inside the flight, the hotel room in Goa, the restaurant and many others are superb. Urvashi is perfect foil for Kamal with ample support from Ramesh, Sruthi and Daisy. Camera of P K H Das and catchy dialogues by Yeshwanth Sardeshpande are added attractions.
Songs by Guru Kiran are good. Raathri Ayuthi Jopana?. sung by Kamal Hassan is the pick of the album.
Verdict: Laugh Riot
