Eedo Rakam Aado Rakam is a remake of super hit Punjabi comedy. It is about the confusion that two friends create in order to impress their lovers. ERAR has a plot that is similar to many confusion comedies that we have seen in the past. However the comedy works and keeps us entertained throughout the film.

What is it about?

Arjun (Vishnu) falls in love with Neelaveni (Sonarika), who wants to marry an orphan. Arjun lies that he is an orphan and marries her. Neelavani rents an upper portion in a lawyer's (Rajendra Prasad) house. He is none other than Arjun's father. Arjun tries to save his marriage by introducing his friend Ashwin (Raj Tarun) to his father as Neelaveni's husband. Meanwhile Ashwin had to lie to his girlfriend Supriya (Hebah) and her brother about his background. The confusion plot thickens after that.


Vishnu Manchu has always excelled in comedy entertainers. Comedy is his forte and he proves it yet again with ERAR. Vishnu is certainly at home in this film. Raj Tarun is as natural as always. In his first multi-starrer, Raj has complemented Vishnu and the chemistry between these two actors is one of the biggest plus points. Sonarika and Hebah's oozing oomph will please the masses. Rajendra Prasad is superb in the father role. Ravibabu is alright. Satya Krishna is good. Supreeth and Abhimayu Singh are their usual self. Sunil did a special appearance in the introduction song.


G. Nageswara Reddy is one of the directors who can assure you of a decent product if he has a good enough script on hands. Eedo Rakam Aado Rakam is a paisa vasool entertainer that will offer some genuine laughs. Nageswara Reddy made complete use of the competent star cast. There are some unavoidable cliches but nonetheless ERAR is entertaining on a whole.

Dialogues are witty. Songs will appeal to the masses. Sai Karthik's background score is fine too. Cinematography is neat. Editor did well to keep it simple and crisp. Production values are impressive.

Confusion dramas like these are not new to our audience. The story of ERAR might not be out-of-the-box one but it's the treatment that changed the course and made the film complete entertainer. Right from the word go, the movie tries to tickle the funnybones of viewers. There are several laugh-out-loud moments that will definitely strike a chord with the mass audience. The comedy gets better as the story moves forward. Interval block is hilarious to the core.

Second half follows the formula and offers passable entertainment all the way. You may easily watch this film once for its fun moments and the performances from the main characters. Some comedy parts lacked the punch, but the film gets back on track with a hilarious scene whenever it goes off the mark for a while.

Barring few cliched moments and double entendres,  ERAR is a paisa vasool comedy with hilarious moments and genuinely funny dialogues. This might work well with B and C centres. Audiences who love to watch comedies will surely like this fun-tastic confusion drama.

Verdict: Navvinche Rakam
