Donít lie too far

Up to scratch: Ragini and Ramesh in the film.

Up to scratch: Ragini and Ramesh in the film.From Charlie Chaplin to Pellam Oorelithe to No Entry, each producer has cashed in on the chuckle-fest.

With good reason. The story and screenplay are sourced from middle-class (for that matter any class) couples’ insecurity, their struggles et al and make for an engaging drama with neither the husband nor the wife any worse for it.

Media baron Ramesh (Ramesh) has a suspicious wife Ramya (Yajna), who thinks he’s having an affair with every woman he comes across, even though he is faithful to her.


His friend Ravi (Ravichandran) is having the best of both worlds – carrying on numerous affairs, right under the nose of his devoted wife Pooja (Malavika). Then there is Raghu (Vijay Raghavendra), a photographer working for Ramesh’s paper, who catches the eye of Sanjana (Rushika), a psychology student.

Ramesh wants to catch Ravi red-handed but instead runs the risk of falling for Khushbu (Ragini). The ‘patnivrata’ that he is, Ramesh resists all advances only to get caught by Ramya under ‘highly suspicious circumstances’.

He lies through his teeth and begins a lie-a-thon, turning the lives of his friends topsy-turvy as well....

Kalla Malla Sulla has plenty of gags – each one better than the last, mainly due to the superb timing of the actors concerned while delivering tickling dialogues by M S Ramesh.

Ragini steals the show with her innocent, yet sensuous looks while Ramesh carries off his role with elan.

But Ravichandran disappoints. Sure the Crazy Star’s onscreen romances are spliced into his intro song, but it is obvious he’s no longer flirting with any of the girls, including Malavika.

Alex Paul catches the ears with three songs while GSV Seetharam’s camera captures both the locations and Ragini’s figure in all their glory. Kalla Malla Sulla is pure timepass.
