The corpse disappears, and Ram's efforts to cover up the event are thwarted by a pesky father-in-law of one of the friends (Nagesh) who thinks Maggie was Ram's wife. Written by Joyojeet Pal

funny movie
9 March 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

the movie is indeed funny and believable too. i would say very good performance from kamal hassan, jay ram (malayalee guy), ramesh aravind (kanada guy), seeman (telugu guy) , urvasi (malayallee guy's wife) and sim ran. the movie starts with flight high jack and how the captain (hero of this film) with heroine saves the flight. even the marriage scenes are pretty funny. where ram( kamal hassan) is caught kissing another girl( his previous girl friend). deva yani though a short role did well in the role of a girl who wants to commit suicide as she is heart wrecked. ram goes to a hotel to save her and in turn mistaken by his wife as he is her lover. Normally a serious scene but handled in a pretty funny way. later how his friends try to encourage him what are the consequences they face is the movie all about.

the movie is equally funny in tamil and telugu . very well translated.
