Highly recommended: Comedy Gem from K. Balachander

One of South India's all time great film directors presents one of my all time favourite Tamil movies - Bama Vijayam. The theme is one of universal appeal- the effects of trying to keep up with the Joneses. The story revolves around an urban South Indian joint family composed of brothers, their wives and children and parent/s. It is the ideal household with every one getting along well with each other and living a simple but content life. All this turns topsy turvy when an affluent and glamorous movie actress moves in next door. The family tries to do everything possible, often going to ridiculous limits, to impress their new neighbour when she plans to pay them a neighbourly visit. Every activity seems to revolve around this much awaited visit and when the day arrives, the family is surprised by Bama's reaction. This is a movie that has at least a couple of great songs - the more famous one being Varavu Ettana Selavu Patthana- about the effects of over spending. The other hit song is Aani Muthu Vaangi Vandhen.
