Synopsis: If you watch LoL to LoL (Laugh out Loud) in the real world, you will definitely be disappointed. But if the aim is to understand how LoL (Lethargy of Life) would feel like, this one's for you.

Movie Review: There's an apparent wish to tell a new story and the intention to entertain. Then there's the desire to make sense and simultaneously play to the gallery. And then the film's ultimate motive goes haywire. Well, that's LoL (Lacchimdeviki O Lekkundi) for you. A film which seems promising as it begins but with every passing minute you know you have got the raw deal.

We are taken into a world of banks, unclaimed accounts full of money untouched for years, schemes to steal that money, and counter plans to protect it. That world is brought alive by a cast which does what is required of them. Be it Naveen's rustiness or Lavanya's no-nonsense act in a triple role. Be it Jaya Prakash Reddy as the unassuming scheming bank manager (he gives an amazing dance performance too!) or Ajay as the man who changes colours often. And then you have the likes of Brahmaji and Narra Srinivas playing some interesting characters too.

However, the problem with LoL isn't the story or performances but the way it has been dealt with. A con comedy thriller with 'fake' paranormal elements, it suffers a mind-numbing slow pace which is a pity considering the film is only 110 minutes long and still seems like an eternity. The director does get brownie points for choosing an interesting premise but he loses out on a proper screenplay indicating the need for better writing. There's ample drama, but it's not weaved in properly. There's genuine comedy, but the slow pace kills it. There are amazing performances, but wasted by shoddy character sketches.

The paranormal element too doesn't impact as much as it would want to and ends up making the film a totally predictable fare.

If you watch LoL to LoL (Laugh out Loud) in the real world, you will definitely be disappointed. But if the aim is to understand how LoL (Lethargy of Life) would feel like, this one's for you. It's actually disheartening to see what could have been a very racy and exciting watch ending up as a regular fare.
