The script of Laahiri Laahiri Laahirilo is rooted in one of those local legends
regarding a certain rivalry that existed between two formidable personalities.
And to flesh out that legend in the form of a movie, here we have four heroes,
four heroines, one antique piece patriarch and one antique piece matriarch. And
now to name all of them. Sigh.
Nani (Aditya) is a broker who not only arranges marriages but also plays Cupid for the pairs he arranges. He is called upon to arrange the marriage of three sisters, Indu (Bhanupriya), Sundhu (Rachana) and Chandu (Sanghvi). These sisters, for horoscope-related reasons, are supposed to be married only to three brothers, and hence are unmarried though they are way past conventional marriageable age.
Aditya finds the required trio in the form of Krishnam Naidu (Harikrishna), Chandram Naidu (Suman) and Srinivasa Naidu (Vineet). This suits him fine as he is in love with the trio's kid-sister Bala (Ankita). The three remain bachelors because their pater Balaram Naidu (Vishwanath) had decreed that the sis comes first.
There of course has to be a bone of contention, and here we have the grandmother of all bones, Achhamamba (Lakshmi). She has a major grudge to nurse against Balaram Naidu who jilted her half a century ago and led to their respective fathers hacking each other to death. You'd think they would be even after that, but the thirst for vengeance still smolders.
Now the broker plays Cupid all over the place, facilitating his own affair along with the three others. Krishnam Naidu is an all-round tough guy who uses two and only two fingers to thrash the baddies (don't even think of asking!) and saves the damsel. Soon Krishnam and Indu, Chandram and Sundhu and Srinivasa and Chandu are paired off.
Just as the broker is about to round it off by officially pairing himself with his girl, Achhamamba jumps into the fray. She makes peace through a cock-fight (believe me, you don't want to know!) and gets Balaram Naidu to promise Bala's hand in marriage to her nephew. She also arranges for a truckload of ruffians to hack the broker to death.
But Krishnam Naidu and his two fingers beat the pint-sized ruffians down to a peg. He then loads them all into a Safari and unloads them in front of Achhamamba's house. It's challenge-counter-challenge time, with powerful dialogues and the clash of the titans. The climax is a fifteen-minute long fight where the two fingers reign throughout, with the rest of the heroes helping in getting the antiques away in the Safari. Four weddings and a couple of hundred funerals follow (the funerals being censored).
This movie is all about Harikrishna, s/o NTR Sr. and f/o NTR Jr. With those whiskers and that glare and those two fingers, he is omnipresent. Lakshmi is good competition and gives the man plenty of scope to spew verbal fire. The rest are basically supposed to be foils, and foil pretty well (he he he).
Aditya, however, deserves special mention. An excuse for a coat-hanger, with a face that has seizures each time he emotes and with clothes that expose parts which normally have muscles on them, the man is totally intolerable. Though not called upon to do much, he manages to botch it up.
The direction is decent enough, and the music too is tolerable. The action goes
on and on, and with really powerful dialogue-delivery, no one actually caught
the dialogues. POW-WOW... ouch! It's your call!
