Ramji Rao Speaking - Malayalam Comedy Movie involves the lives of 3 people - Gopalakrishnan (Mukesh), Balakrishnan (Saikumar) and Mannar Mathai (Innocent). All 3 are struggling to meet ends meet and they have many reasons for which they need money immediately. For example, Gopalakrishnan's mother does not know her son's predicament and he wants to maintain the illusion that he is a successful manager living in Calcutta.
None of the actors were superstars and that emphasizes why this movie is so important in the history of Malayalam cinema. It is a wild ride consisting of great comic sequences involving the three. Mamukoya is also an awesome addition to the cast as Hamsakoya,a man who is asking Balakrishnan to pay back the debt so that Hamsakoya is able to marry of his daughter.
There are so many emotional sequences and the characters are believable and thus they endear themselves to the common Malayalee. This is what makes this movie special. The scenes where the 3 are outlining the plan and preparing for the mission are so funny that they are etched in the mind of the common Malayalee.
Also of special mention are the performances of Rekha as the love interest of Balakrishnan, Devan as Urmees Thampan and Shankaradi as the manager of the company where Balakrishnan is seeking work. Siddique Lal have used their experience with Kalabhavan to give memorable dialogues and thus lift this movie to the status of a masterpiece.
This is wholesome entertainment for the whole family and definitely the best movie
