Usko Lahtinen (Tommi Rinne) and Toivo Lahtinen (Leif Wager) are neighbors who happen to have the same last name.They're also the best of buddies and work at the same place.But then one day they happen to fall for the same lady, Irma Virtanen (Maija Karhi).That hurts their friendship big time.Ville Salminen is the director and Reino Helismaa is the writer of Kaks' Tavallista Lahtista (1960).It's filled with musical bits that are often joyful.Tommi Rinne and Leif Wager make a wonderful team in the lead.They're both men full of charisma.No wonder all the ladies fall for them.The young Pirkko Mannola is radiant as Pirkko Järvinen.Leni Katajakoski in the role of Eeva dazzles with beauty.The brilliant Eemeli plays Janitor Vepsäläinen with his inimitable style.Vesa Enne is his singing son.Pentti Irjala plays producer.Toivo Mäkelä is managing clerk Puntti. Ville-Veikko Salminen plays European champion in boxing, Leo Jokela is his assistant.Also Masa Niemi is seen in the movie which was sadly his last before he took his own life.I would have wished they had given a bigger role for this great comedian.He doesn't even have any lines! That is my only complaint I have about this movie.Otherwise it's a cheerful experience.
