Eedo Rakam Aado Rakam, an official remake of a Punjabi film, has a wafer-thin storyline.  What was touted as a family entertainer with a curious premise turns out to be one, never mind the couple swapping comedy that will appeal to the youth more.  For all the doubles entendres that are there, G Nageshwara Reddy doesn't hit below the belt for the sake of it (excepting one scene involving Vennela Kishore and his newly-wed wife).

Arjun (Vishnu Manchu) is the good-for-nothing son of lawyer Narayana (Rajendra Prasad).  When to his friend's (Vennela Kishore in a brief but rib-tickling role) wedding along with his all-weather friend Ashwin (Raj Tarun), Arjun falls in love with Neelaveni (Sonarika of Speedunnodu fame), the one and only doted sister of a land-grabber (Abhimanyu Singh).  This sensitive and sentimental sister (what is new?) of a ruthless goon has this quirky wish of marrying only an orphan because her now-dead sister was harassed by her in-laws.  No in-laws, no domestic violence is the logic.  Arjun lies to her conveniently, but least does he expect that her brother will smoothly coerce him into marrying her within hours.  To make the matters worse, Neelaveni ends up liking Arjun's family and wishes to become their tenant.  It's now up to Arjun to keep his wife from knowing that he has a family, even while pulling wool over his funny father's eyes.

Ashwin and Surpriya (Heebah Patel) are the other pair.  There comes a point when Ashwin falls in a soup because Surpriya's comedic don-brother (Supreet in a forgettable role) will marry his sister off only to a crorepathi.  The rest of the film is about how Raj Tarun's lie makes the matters worse for Vishnu, with Rajendra Prasad's palatial bungalow becoming the centre of a theatre of the absurd.

Even with a hackneyed premise like this, the director has done a fairly engaging work in the second half.  The first half largely does with lame comedy involving Vishnu, Rajendra Prasad and Ravi Babu.   The latter part throws up a meaty screenplay involving more and more characters as Raj Tarun turns the tables, giving a jolt to Vishnu in the process.

Diamond Ratnababu's dialogues are a plus, although in the initial portions there are some hiccups.

Posani Krishna Murali playing that frustrated cop-father to Raj Tarun would have been a greater treat to watch had more care been taken.  They both had a huge potential to raise the roof.  Although the Raj Tarun-Heebah Patel pairing reminds one of the chemistry they shared in Kumari 21F, one expected more craziness.  This could have been achieved by making Heebah's character a more involved one in the latter portions - for the reason that she knows the game being played.  Rajendra Prasad, Ravi Babu and Satya Krishna give hilarious moments.  Geeta Singh's character could have been better etched.

There comes a point when one feels Rajendra Prasad is too narcissistic.  The scenes involving him with Raj Tarun are good.

The many comedians, including Prabhas Sreenu, Fish Venkat, Vennela Kishore, Shakalaka Shankar, pass muster.

As for performances, both the lead actors do a convincing job.  Vishnu tries his hand at a full-fledged comedy role and gets our attention.  Raj Tarun gets the chemistry right with every actor in the film; and that goes to show his strengths.  Rajendra Prasad gets a full-fledged role and evokes laughter, although purists might cavil.  Sonarika needs to loosen up her expression.  Heebah is impressive like she was in her debut.

Sai Kartheek's music works to an extent.  Both BGM and cinematography could have been better.

Verdict:  A confusion comedy with a thin storyline but some substantial scenes, especially in the second half.
