One of Sreenivasan's lesser films as a writer .....
Aram+Aram is one of the worst films that you ever wrote in the 80s when you were at the top of your game. Though it is sort of a masterpiece compared to some of the comedy films getting made today. Including the ones made by your son. I guess this film was a minor blip in your otherwise impeccable filmography of the 80s.
The jokes were crude and uninspired. You did stitch the ridiculous plot together in the end. And you made a career for Bobby Kottarakara with that scene in the restaurant. There isn't much else to recommend in this film. Mohanlal, Shankar, Raju and yourself have roles that you guys could play in your sleep.
You did introduce the famous M.N.Nambiar and Balan characters (played by Thilakan and Innocent respectively) in this film. They would make a great comeback a few years later in your greatest comedy film - Nadodikattu. I never realized those two characters first made an appearance in Aram+Aram. I am surprised Priyadarshan did not insist on directing Nadodikattu since two of the film's major characters first made an appearance in a film directed by him.
Best Regards, Pimpin.
