How Ned Devine became Malamaal

Is not known to me. In fact, I chanced upon Ned Devine by accident Ned Devine. But I did enjoy Priyadarshan's Malamaal Weekly. I guess my expectations were very low indeed, and the village scenes were done pretty well. It was refreshing to hear Paresh Rawal's earthy liners: "Arey chamgadar sidha latkenge toh mor nahin ban jayenge"; "Tere muh mein chata ghuserke khol doonga" and so on. I am not sure whether the original Waking Ned Devine also had such gems. Need to check whether that's available for rent in Bangalore.
