Padmashree Laloo Prasad YadavPadmashree Laloo Prasad Yadav: Puerile proposition

Padmashree Laloo Prasad Yadav is supposed to be a comedy film, but it doesn't make you laugh. It only makes you wonder at so-called creative faculties of director Mahesh Manjrekar .

If buffoonery was the code of the day, then a film like PLPY may get a mention.




Puerile humor, shoddy script, below-average performances - PLPY is actually a case study of what happens when a poor script is sloppily converted into celluloid buffoonery by a director who likes to lend a touch of realism to his work.

The film has Sunil Shetty playing a flirtatious character called Laloo, who can't remain faithful to his girlfriend Padma, played by Masumeh Makhija . Frustrated with Laloo, Padma goes to Cape Town to find some precious jewels that rightfully belong to her. The jewels are locked in a safe in a bank there.

Laloo reunites with Padma in Cape Town and together with a local goon Yadav (Johnny Lever), he robs the bank. But the loot is hidden somewhere by Yadav's boss who is caught by police. Here, enters into picture Prasad (Manjrekar), a lawyer.

Padma plays love game with Laloo and Yadav to get her hands on the jewels. Laloo and Yadav further play the game of upmanship with each other. And so the movie goes on until its expected end.

It embarrasses a viewer to see that Sunil Shetty still hasn't been able to catch the nuances of acting after years of working in films. But if a man like Manjrekar can falter, why blame Shetty.

Only Masumeh Makhija makes some impression in the film. Other two girls - Kim Sharma and Anupama Verma - only add oomph to the otherwise unwatchable movie.
