A ton of below-the-belt bedroom jokes and an infinite amount of unfunniness are usually good at making any period of time seem like 3 days, and Buridi does just that. The presence of almost every known funny face in Tollywood does nothing to make this movie rise even an inch above its stupendous mediocrity - now that must be a feat.
The location is Bangkok, and M S Narayana and Raghu Babu (all characters in the film are referred to by the names of the actors playing them) land there because they have been hired to finish off a girl (Aishwarya) who's staying at a hotel there. One bird-poop session later, they are left with just the first two digits of the room number of their target.
This obviously means they must guess from among the rest of the rooms on the floor, all occupied by honeymooning couples - each of which is only less bizarre than the next. Most of the plot is made up of the imagined - but eventually proved true - case histories of these couples. In the midst of all the investigative work, the hotel manager's (AVS) son (Aryan Rajesh) falls in love with the girl in danger, and courts her in a few songs.
Well, if the idea of Telangana Sakuntala getting pregnant by Jayaprakash Reddy seems to you like a winning idea for a closing joke, then Buridi's your best bet this weekend. And the fact that there are about a dozen honeymooning couples around means the bombardment of the same kind of off-colour jokes over and over again. It is also an environment most conducive to making fun of appearances and getting away with it - every kind of gag seems to have been inserted into the proceedings just so the audience will chuckle.
And while most of the humour is downright offensive, the rest of the buffoonery is a tired effort at whatever the film is trying to do.
It's not the case of too many cooks, then - it's just the fact that an atrocious sense of comedy is bursting through every pore of the film. Everyone in the cast is pretty much the usual, but the abysmal script does them in. Raghu Babu, Jayaprakash Reddy, Krishna Bhagawan, AVS and MS are the only ones in the movie who seem to be sincere at their job, and not surprisingly, they bring out the only few laughs.
As for Aryan Rajesh, the face of the promos for this movie, he has nothing much to do. The romantic track in Buridi is a farce clearly, and only provides fuel for the songs.
Packaged with worn-out production values and unremarkable music, Buridi isn't even a decent cinematic experience.
Skip it - the thought of even watching this movie, we mean.
