There are very few movies that get you laughing at the name itself. As is apparent, this in one of those. If only the rest of the movie were as funny as the name, we would have had the smash hit comedy spoof of the year. But some things are just not meant to be. A movie starring Ram and Lakshman is one of them.
We last saw The Brothers in a movie
that was heroine Udaya Bhanu's last big venture. After that her career just went south. Now it's Sanghavi's turn. Her first film after a year, and she's starring opposite the most dashing duo on Telugu screens. They cannot act, they cannot dance, they cannot fight, but they sure as hell can make you laugh.
Here's the story - Ram and Lakshman are brothers who both want to become police officers. After a few scenes copied from all previous anti-corruption themed movies, the brothers challenge the local Don Panda, who they believe is the reason for the corruption existing in our society. Don Panda is pissed and he kills the heroes (more on that later). It must be noted here that any similarities to Don Panda from Venkatesh's Gharshana
are all purely coincidental, including hairstyle and screams.
For all the members of the audience who praised the Lord when they saw the heroes die, the real surprise was just lurking around the corner. Enter Dr. Sanghavi. After careful examination of the bodies, she realizes that there are critical organs in both bodies that still are in working condition. So she uses her genius and AIIMS degree to join these organs and make one perfect body. We apologize for not remembering the next 20 minutes of the movie as we were rolling in the aisles. The sad part though is that inspite of Dr. Sanghavi's best efforts, she cannot come up with the brain for the One Body, as both skulls were empty.
Now you know the reason that we called the brothers such good entertainers. They made us laugh with the whole One-Body-Zero-Brain funda. They made us laugh with their absolute lack of taste in their "costumes". They make us laugh every time they attempt to deliver a dialogue. Talent like this hasn't been seen since Mahmood and Jerry Lewis. A true testimony to the directorial ability of N Swaraj.
The USP of songs in movies like these is to show off the hot bods of the heroines. But considering you've already had an opportunity to carefully examine (and from close proximity) the hot bod of Sanghavi in numerous other films, you are most likely to fall asleep during the songs. If you are still interested, the name of the music director is Bombay Bhole. Now you know why we were laughing at the opening credits itself.
Movies like these should come with disclaimers warning the audience about the adverse effects of laughing too hard and too often.
