Jamba Lakidi Pamba review: Decent cmomedy entertainer

Jamba Lakidi Pamba!

The title itself brings laughter to the Telugu audience. Such was the impact the 1993 classic had on the Telugu people. Jamba Lakidi Pamba entered the Telugu vernacular and the movie remains as one of the greatest comedies of Telugu Cinema. When top comedy actor Srinivasa Reddy is coming up with a movie which has the iconic title, expectations rose high. 

Newcomer Siddhi Idnani joined Srinivasa Reddy as the heroine. Senior actors like Tanikella Bharani and Posani Krishna Murali played supporting roles. Vennela Kishore's presence makes us expect hilarious comedy setpieces. Let's see this movie hits the bull's eye or not with Jamba Lakidi Pamba review. 

The setup

The story begins with a suspense of the conflict between a married couple and gently runs into the flashback. Though they had a love marriage, the conflicts of ego and misunderstanding push their married life into problems. As the conflict between them gets bigger, they approach a lawyer Hari played by Posani Krishna Murali.

Hari is routinely a famous divorce lawyer who is waiting to complete the century of divorces and eagerly arranges to divide the couple. But the twist comes later as the lawyer and his wife die in an accident and the couple reaching the heaven. And the interval comes with another spat between the couple, who are now on the verge of separation. 

The lawyer who had helped separate numerous couples tries to redeem himself now by uniting the present couple of the hero and the heroine. How and in what way Hari unites the couple, and what is the role of Swaroop (Vennela Kishore) forms the crux of the story. 

The direction and acting

The story has great potential. Gender role reversal is always a guarantee for success when properly dealt with. The director selected a hilarious setup for the movie. An actor like Srinivasa Reddy who has a great comedy timing as the lead. Unfortunately, he failed in some places in execution. But all's not bad. 

Srinivasa Reddy has done a great job as a man who behaves like a woman. His expressions, the scenes he involves with Siddhi are great. Every scene he is present makes the audience laugh like anything. He carried the movie on his shoulders. His acting in serious scenes is equally good. Jamba Lakidi Pamba is the perfect subject for his talent. 

Heroine Siddhi Idnani got a meaty role. She has to enact the role of a young lady who behaves like a man. With her theatre background and strong role, she excelled in the movie. Only nitpicking is there's not proper chemistry between the hero and the heroine. But she supported Srinivasa Reddy in carrying the movie forward. 

Posani action went overboard sometimes. Vennela Kishore excelled in his role. Tanikella Bharani makes his presence felt. Rest of the cast members did their jobs well. But unfortunately, all the talented comedy actors are not properly utilised by the director in this movie. 

The crew

While the songs by Gopi Sunder are average, the background score is good. The songs come as speed breakers in the flow of the story though. The cinematography by Satish Mutyala is good. Editing could have been better in few areas. Production values by Sivam Celluloids banner are good. They delivered a decent comedy movie with an interesting point. 


On a whole, Jamba Lakidi Pamba is a decent comedy entertainer to ill time this weekend. Srinivasa Reddy acting as a woman, comedy between the hero and the heroine Siddhi Idnani, and the basic story setup are good. The movie reminds us of Malayalam movie Itihaasa and Hollywood movie Switch. You can enjoy this movie in your nearby theatres.
