· Raghava Lawrence

· Action sequences
· Slow pace
· Few dragged scenes
· Telugu dubbing
Performance: Raghava Lawrence and SJ Surya acted well in this movie according to the circumstances of their role. Lawrence has done very well with his body language. SJ Surya, who played another key role, impressed with his acting and body ease. Shine Tom Chacko as the villain does not have much scope. However, he did full justice to his role. Naveen Chandra’s performance is also natural. Sathyan, Arvind Akash as well as the rest of the cast also performed well in the scope of their roles.
Technical: Talking about technicians, director Karthik Subbaraju’s take is good. However, he failed to write good content. His screenplay is not interesting. Music director Santhosh Narayanan’s music is fine. But the background score of the second half is very impressive in some key scenes. Tirru’s cinematography work is very good. The editing work is ok. The production values are very good.
Analysis: The performance of the actors are good, but the director Karthik Subbaraju could not create interest in the story. Especially in the track that revolves around the tribal theme, the repeated scenes have increased. Along with this, the conflicts and emotions between the characters were not worked out in the first half. As the first half played with fake emotions around the illogical point, this Jigarthanda Double X disappointed at some places. Gripping narration is missing. Along with this, some action scenes were also routine. Overall, the director Karthik Subbaraju has not been able to make this movie in a fully impressive manner.
