Srinivasa Reddy's latest outing which has come out today is Jamba Lakidi Pamba. Read on to see how the comedy caper turns out to be.
The story of the film is about a distressed couple who apply for a divorce. But things get changed all of a sudden when their genders get changed all of a sudden because of a devotional effect from Posani. The crux of the story is as to how the couple manages their avatars and resolve their marital problems on their end.
The film is filled up with all the known comedians who are the only respite in the film. Srinivasa Reddy leads from the front and he is the only solace of the film with his gender-defying act. Vennela Kishore ably supports him with his histrionics which is hilarious in places. Heroine Siddhi Idhani looks cute and is also a good find in her character. Appa Rao of Jabardasth fame gets a meaty role. Tanikella Bharani and his family including Satyam Rajesh irritate you with the over the top acting. Posani also is very apt in his atma role.
The problem of the film lies in the execution department. Director Murali has failed in generating any interest for the viewers as his director hackneyed. His usage of comedy is not good at all and he adds so many layers to the film with many artists which keep taking the film away from the audience mostly.
When compared to the first part, the second part is okay. The film has some cheesy double meaning comedy which looks silly. In spite of having many actors, not one manages to hold your attention taking away the credit from the storyline which was okay.
Lack of comedy
A good hype was created by the promos of the film but sadly, the film does not deliver the knockout punch. In one way, what could have been a very good entertaining film is let down heavily by some silly episodes. This Jamba Lakidi Pamba has nothing that the original had and gives another disappointment to Srinivas Reddy who tries his luck as the hero again in his career.
