Bisi Bisi (ಬಿಸಿ ಬಿಸಿ) is a romantic comedy starring Ramesh, Anu Prabhakar and Madhuri Bhattacharya. It is based on the movie The Seven Year Itch, famous for its scene of Marilyn Monroe’s dress billowing over a subway grate. Seven years into his marriage to Anu Prabhakar, Ramesh starts to feel a bit of irritation in their relationship. After packing her and his daughter off to their native place for the Dasara vacation, Ramesh starts to flirt with a toothpaste model (Madhuri Bhattacharya) who moves in as a new neighbour. The plot is familiar territory for a Ramesh romantic comedy and is nothing to write home about. Curious about the original, I watched the The Seven Year Itch for comparison. Bisi Bisi is easily a big improvement over that soporific drama! The plot has been reinterpreted well for Kannada and there are a few genuinely funny or emotional nuggets in the movie. The music is crappy and is better ignored. Bisi Bisi is pretty entertaining to watch once, but nothing more.
