Two big stars and a routine formula for a commercial entertainer is the name of the game in the movie 'Lava Kusha'. The film revolves around two close friends Chinnu (Shivarajkumar ) and Chakri (Upendra) who are seasoned conmen and make their living in their own ways. While Chinnu works for a powerful don (Sayaji Shinde) , Chakri earns his bread by conning people. Enter Sara (Jennifer) who is the daughter of the don and falls in love with Chinnu for his heroic deeds in saving her, on the other hand is Sinchana (Charmee) who is a perfect partner for Chakri as she is a noted conwoman too. Trouble begins when Chakri insults Sara to get even with his past experience not knowing that Chinnu is in love with her. Misunderstandings rise and give way for the don and the friend's rivals to plan a devious plot and separate Chinnu and Chakri forever. However, both of them realize their folly and surprisingly discover that they are brothers, luck goes a step further when they even find their parents (Girish Karnad and Sumithra) in a temple. The film ends with the baddies getting beaten and the family reuniting happily.

Om Saiprakash has done a good job and did not experiment at any point, he looked at a commercial entertainer which can make money and has succeeded in doing so. The first half is racy and is full of some really hilarious scenes and laughter and the second half comes out with sufficient quota of action and sentiment. The casting has carried out their roles with ease and the one to watch out for is Charmee who makes her debut in Kannada but has the poise and maturity as an actress. Upendra and Shiv are impressive as usual while Jennifer has not much to do. Sayaji Shinde is monotonous but the comedy track by Tennis Krishna, Mandya Ramesh and others is worth. Cinematography is average and the audio highlight of Puneeth Rajkumar singing a song is a treat. Editing needs to improve as the eyes get disturbed due to the quick frames.

A regular pot boiler masala which had the required ingredients of laughter, sentiment and action. The makers were focused on a commercial entertainer and have got it . the subject though old has been handled very well and the presentation has been taut which has made the film a pace filled entertainer. Laughter was in the peak and sentiment was equally strong. The presence of two big stars added to the feast. While there is no substance in the story, it is the narration and other aspects which have carried the film easily. The film may not appeal the class audience but mass will surely have a ball.

Bharatstudent verdict: An enjoyable affair for the star fans. Recommended for mass audience!!
