Eradane Maduve (ಎರಡನೆ ಮದುವೆ) is a Kannada comedy directed by Dinesh Baboo. Anant Nag plays a house-husband who has (ironically) been fired from his job at Lok Ayukta on corruption charges. Due to his dishonourable exit from his job his wife (Suhasini Maniratnam), his three daughters and the maid (Tara) treat him like dirt. To teach his family a lesson, Anant Nag starts a friendship with a young TV actress (Jennifer Kotwal) that leads to turmoil at his home.
This movie is pretty enjoyable in the beginning but loses steam as it progresses. Anant Nag as the hen-pecked husband and Suhasini as the dominatrix have excellent chemistry. Tara as a unionized maid is especially funny, while Rangayana Raghu’s role is grating. The movie is too long for its thin plotline and one wishes the high-jinx in the second half would just end quickly. Eradane Maduve is yet another average family comedy.
