Babu Rao, Raju and Shyam, are living happily after having risen from rags to riches. Still, money brings the joy of riches and with it the greed to make more money - and so, with a don as an unknowing investor, Raju initiates a new game.
This series is an excellent piece of work. Stylishly shot and put together with the kind of amusingly silly and intricate story lines you'd expect from Guy Richie. The characters are believable and likable, and although most of the acting isn't exactly top notch everyone has been extremely well cast and fit into their roles perfectly. The acting that IS good however, is superb... Ralph Brown in particular gives an outstanding performance and dominates any scene he's in. A well thought out and superbly cool soundtrack brings the whole thing together nicely.
I know very few people who have even heard of the Lock Stock series, let alone taken the time to sit down and watch it, but those who i've introduced to it have always found it funny and always ended up watching the whole series! In my (admittedly biased) opinion, it is well worth buying the DVD. Failing that if you ever get a chance to watch it, don't just dismiss it straight off... Sit down and watch, because I guarantee you'll be hooked.
