Jaabili is a do-it-yourself kit ingeniously designed to make you analyze the quality of the film yourself. By searching high and low, the encrypted answers within the film can be decoded.
- How's the fresh, budding hero?
"Eppudayina yendipoyina maavidi tenkani choosaavaa?"
- What about the comedy track?
"What a funny!"
- And the music?
"Full, full, wonderful. Bull, bull, beautiful."
- But the direction? Surely, it's S V Krishna Reddy?
Whiz kids working prodigiously on their comps while the screens proudly displayed
'It is now safe to turn off your computer.'
- So the people didn't like it?
"Bathroom loki velli, vekki vekki yedicham."
- Another producer bites dust then?
"Telisinavaalu 10 paisalu kooda veyyaru."
Your strong resolve to be patient gradually weakens as the film reaches its 2nd
minute. The upsurge demanding for a rerun of the newsreel is turned down because
the actors in the film are eager to see the reception. So the large screen watches
in amazement how we humans will do anything for money. We paid for the ticket,
Hemanth (Dilip) is our regular, balding college student that skillfully calls
his friends' paternity "uncool, uncool". He falls in love with Lavanya (Rekha),
for she, trophy-less and insensitive, is responsible for his victory over Al Gore.
The story then twists, as the parents don't consent (yes, yes, that's you - it's
okay, you can come out now).
The catch-22 over our lovebirds' path to possess
wealth in order to live self-reliantly gives us plenty of time to thaw some karate
chops for dinner. They look so adorable together that at Christmas you'd hang
them up and kiss the mistletoe. However their desperation comes to an end with
an accidental inheritance of an industry through a friend. Then comes the best
part of the story.
Hemanth lets out his grave secret. He's the fertilized product
of Ritu Beri's misdeeds with a transformer toy. Hence he designs a multi-lingual,
multi-purpose, four-in-one shirt that becomes a sensation. For a minute you think
you're crazy but you're wrong. You've been crazy much longer. The name of that
shirt: Jaabili. Pleeeease...
Rekha isn't as thick as she looks. She couldn't possibly be. Dilip, though, has
a pretty little head, and for a head it's pretty little. He can easily win a medal
in the events of being Mr. Stone Faced and Mr. Woodpecker Head. The so-called
comedians in the industry (the film has them all) would change your opinion about
going to the missing persons bureau to see if someone's actually looking for you.
S V Krishna Reddy gives us some inspiring dialogues such as "Pulla Reddy: from
a small laddu to big shop". His mind, though, wanders very often - but not to
worry, it's appears too weak now to go very far.
Try staying at home and see if you can snore. Can't possibly insult English by
calling this a movie.
