Circumstances force Rehman (Ram) to pose as Ram, to land a job. His employer Balaram (Vankatesh) is a kind hearted jamindar who just can't stand lies. Rehman goes on spinning tales of twin brothers, multiple mothers and so on to get out of sticky situations. Eventually Balaram discovers the truth and all hell breaks loose.
: It's a comedy with gags aplenty. The humor in the movie works a lot like cheap whiskey that doesn't leave a great after taste but will surely do the needful. Lets just say the wit is more likely to get you go bhwahwahwah than wow! Truth opens when doors close...,shut up in the mouth and get out of the house..., don't get emotional just pest control yourself..., the doubt of the mind is the devil of the world.... Balaram keeps extolling to which his yes-man, Eddu (Jayprakash Reddy) responds with endorsements like terrible sir terrible, senseless, bulls#$t and other such gibberish.
Our man Balaram has a thing for English and takes pride in his grandfather who could "crush, flush and finish the British with his English," or some such. "My first language English, second language English, my total body language English," Balaram keeps boasting to his entourage. Eddu, his sidekick is equally proficient in English. The exchanges between the duo can't speak a line of correct English but can't help speaking anyways are easily the most paisa vasool part of the movie.
The movie offers truckloads of such tomfoolery. We have Ram playing a very gay Rahman. Then Kovai Sarala plays a record dancer who hates being called an aunty. We have MS Narayana and Ali doing their bit and a host of character artistes who all chip with some madness of their own.
The script writers seem to have run out of ideas when writing for the two leading ladies though. Both Anjali and Shazahan look like props on the set that have little to do with what's happening around.
Venky walks away with all the acting credits in what seems like his most over-the-top act ever and he doesn't hold back anything. The music is silly enough to match up the madness and to get into matters like cinematography and editing would mean over analysis. Funny as it sounds, its a Rohit Shetty movie that is remade in Telugu.
It would be fair to say the movie lives up to its name, Masala, in so far as packing in all the ingredients, albeit in excessive doses.
: It's almost a frame to frame remake of Bol Bachchan, so leave your brains outside the theaters to enjoy this one to the fullest.
