Boeing Boeing!

It’s so funny how one concept goes from Broadway to Mal-wood or is that Kollywood now?

I remember watching (and loving) a mal movie called Boeing Boeing (1984) which starred Mohan lal. Wanna know what the Origin of the movie is? Here goes:

Boeing Boeing was a London Play written by Marc Camoletti in 1962. It was later turned into a french movie and an American in 1965 with Jerry Lewis and Terry Curtis. In 1984, Priyadarsan made the mal version.

In 2007 Boeing Boeing re-opened in Broadway with an all star cast including Rhea Perlman from Cheers.

What is the play/movie about. The protagonist (in the original play an architect) juggles three girlfriends, all of them air hostesses. His friend comes to visit him and things start to fall apart…
