Bhama Vijayam/Bhale? Kodalu

1967 179’ b&w Tamil/Telugu? d K. Balachander pc Manohar Pics/Sekhar? Films lyr Kannadasan c P.N. Sundaram, K.S. Prakash m M.S. Vishwanathan, T.V. Raju lp Rajashri, Nagesh, Muthuraman, Sundarrajan, T.S. Balaiah[Ta]/S.V. Ranga Rao[Te], Jayanthi, Kanchana, Sowcar Janaki, K. Mukkamala, N.T. Rama Rao

Balachander’s satire is reminiscent of his stage work. A movie star Bhama (Rajshree) moves into the neighbourhood where a joint family of three husbands (Nagesh, Muthuraman, Sundarrajan) and their wives (Jayanthi, Kanchana, Janaki) live. Her presence sends the wives into a spending spree as they buy radios and fancy goods in order to keep up with their glamorous neighbour, while accusing their husbands of being more than friendly with the star. The comic song Varavu ettanna salavu pathanna (Earn Eight Annas and Spend Ten) was a hit.
