Jagadeesh described comedians as hot cakes that come with an expiry date. The audience laugh at their mere sight on screen while they're 'hot'. It's unlikely that any big film gets planned without their comic presence. They end up doing hundreds of films before the audience is tired of them. Before Suraj Venjaramoodu (especially recently in Driving License and Great Indian Kitchen), only a few comic actors managed to transition to playing lead characters, or even more concrete supporting characters.
Even though he had played several villain roles earlier in his career, Cochin Haneefa had pretty much become the comic relief in mainstream films from the mid-90s. At this point, we could even see him in roles that outwardly appear funny and harmless, but their evil intentions would be revealed to us only much later. Of course, his conniving character in Kamal Haasan's Mahanadhi comes to mind first, and we even saw him in a similar role in Sibi Malayil's Sagaram Sakshi, starring Mammootty.
One of his works is called Bayba & 110 blowjobs. The main character in this comic is a nymphomaniac transsexual, that is in the process of transformation by hormone therapy and operations to become a sex slave. The male characters are seldom seen and often appear to be pictured as pigs. Mostly you can only see their shadows. She takes a challenge to win a big price. For that, Bayba needs to satisfy 110 men orally within a day. The comic contains many fetishes and BDSM themes. There is also a sequence to this comic..
No new territory is charted in the dozen stories of After Rain. Trevor long ago staked out his terrain and rarely ventures out of Ireland, Ulster, England, or occasionally (as in the title story) Italy. Trevor's Ireland is deeply imbued by his sense and sensibility, and a sampling of titles given to assessments of his work bears vivid witness to his vision of his homeland: "Tales from the Land of Broken Hearts," "Domestic Terrors," "Thin Ice," "William Trevor and the Loss of Paradise," "The Dark Souls of Ordinary People." Stephen Schiff's 1993 profile for The New Yorker (where half of the new stories originally appeared) is called "The Shadows of William Trevor." His England -- usually London or the industrial cities -- is hardly sunny either. Terrorism and IRA gunfire blast into the lives of his Irish, while random homicides and serial killings seem commonplace in his Britain. Even those characters who briefly In "A Friendship," Margy encourages her childhood friend Francesca escape Tuscany or Umbria carry the cruelties or deep disappointments of the past around with them. Some form of alienation, jealousy, or betrayal is gnawing at the soul of almost every Trevor figure.
