A good laugh riot, but a copy
27 May 2006 | by teshnairSee all my reviews

A good script from the pens of the unmatchable Srinivasan, well filmed by Priyadarshan. The roles are very well enacted by Mohanlal and Mukesh, supported by the incomparable Sukumari. This movie has since been remade in to the Bollywood hit "Garam Masala", in which Paresh Rawal takes on Sukumari's character, Akshay Kumar takes on Mohanlal's and John Abraham takes on Mukesh's.

The movie itself is a remake from the 1965 Hollywood movie by the same name, featuring Tony Curtis and Jerry Lewis. At about the same time the malayalam movie was released in 1985, Boeing Boeing also got released in Norwegia in their native language.
