It takes the familiar story of a guy meeting a girl for a one-night stand but unwittingly falling in love with her and goes in search to win her. In this case, the girl is a resident of a psychology wellness centre – and that’s where a good chunk of the story happens.

Mandela (2021) is a comedy-drama film starring Yogi Babu, about the sufferings of outcasts and the power of universal suffrage.

Good, Harmless Humour that is fun, based on everyday life is universal & works across culture, language & media. I noticed this Archie Comics story “The Right Type” having the same theme as Actor Vadivelu comedy clip in the Tamil movie Vathiyar (வாத்தியார்) 2006. In the comic, a famous artist selects Reggie over Archie saying “I’m Sorry, But you’re not the type”. Veronica too says “Yes, Archie, Take my word for it, you’re not the type!”. In the film, Singamuthu character says at Vadivelu “நீ அதுக்கு சரிவர மாட்டே!” (You will not suit for that) #Archie #Comics #Humour #TamilCinema #Comedy #Vadivelu

In her 30s and sadly single, Bridget Jones (Renée Zellweger) is working in a dead-end job as public relations officer in a London publishing firm. To…

Saajan Bakery (2021) is a Malayalam Comedy Drama about the rough relationship between a sister and her brother, who run a local bakery in Ranni, Kerala founded by their father.

It is available on Amazon Prime Video. The story happens around a small bakery founded by Saajan in 1962 and after his passing away being run his children Betsy and Bobin, along…
