Boyapati Srinu’s action and romantic entertainer Jaya Janaki Nayaka starring Bellamkonda Sai Srinivas and Rakul Preet Singh, has finally hit the theaters today on 11th August 2017. Apart from lead pair, the film has Jagapathi Babu, Pragya Jaiswal, Sarath Kumar, Catherine Tresa and others. Let’s check out the review to know whether the movie reached the audience expectations or not:
Storyline: Gagan (Bellamkonda Sai Srivinas) is the son of Businessman Chakravarthi (Sarath Kumar). Chakravarthi lives happily with his sons Gagan and Nandu (Nandu) and they looks more like friends than father and sons. One day, Gagan meets Sweety (Rakul Preet Singh) and the love blossom between them. The couple decided to get married but Narayana Varma (Jagapathi Babu) plans to make Sweety marriage with his son. When Gagan heard this news he goes into depression but a person named Power kills sweety’s husband so Gagan decided to take revenge on that person. What happens next? Who is Power? Why did Power kill Sweety’s husband? To know these details, one should watch the film on the silver screen.
Performance: Bellamkonda Sai Sreenivas tried to deliver his best in action and dances. His performance is good but he has to concentrate on his diction and also work on portraying emotions. He need to polish his dialogue delivery while delivering casual dialogues. Rakul Preet Singh plays his love interest, has done an outstanding job and she looks glamorous throughout the film, especially in the songs. Both Pragya and Rakul are glamorously depicted in the film. Sarath Kumar in the role of hero's father and Jagapathi Babu as Narayana Varma performed well. Catherine Tresa dazzles in a special song and she proves her dancing skill.
Technical: The film does have its drawbacks. The subject is old and predictable. There are a few boring scenes in the film that test the patience of the audiences. The songs are nice, well choreographed and also shot in beautiful locations, but seem to appear in the wrong places. Rakul and Pragya’s glamour quotient may help the film. Devi Sri Prasad music elevates the story in many sequences. Cinematography by Rishi Panjabi needs applause. Editing by Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao is below par. The production Value is top notch.
Analysis: The plus points of the film are Interval bang and production values. The first half of the film showcases a host of emotional scenes between Sarath Kumar and Srinivas, and humorous scenes between Bellamkonda and Rakul. The interval bang is good as it introduces a twist and takes the movie to a different level. The original story starts from the second half. Boyapati Srinu is known for connecting with masses with his content. We have the wait and see how Jaya Janaki Nayaka connects with masses with it’s time-tested, yet minimum guaranteed.
