Duvvada Jagannadham (DJ) Movie review:
Duvvada Jagannadham (DJ) STORY: Duvvada Jagannadha Sastry aka DJ is a traditionally high Brahmin man from Vijayawada who runs a catering business. He does not just take things in his hands for the major good, thanks to the ethic instilled by his grandfather. Now the DJ, with the help of a little aggressive cop (Murali Sharma), is hot on the heels of Royyala Naidu, the backbone of an “Agro Diamond” scam, and is ready to meet him through A series of storytelling tours.
DJ REVIEW: “Cigarettelu, Mandu Arogyaniki chethaha, chethasya, Chethobhyaha”, the character of Allu Arjun says in the typical style of the narrative of the mantra, leaving the public in slots. Throughout the film, he passes between two characters: Jagannadha Sastry and DJ; The emphasis is on the elevation of the hero as a distinctive panthulu of Brahmin.
DJ Banks on the secular concept of dushta sikshana (evil will be punished) and takes vigilance efforts for the common good. Reason? People were left shaken by a scam that was conceived by Royyala Naidu (Rao Ramesh).
In her other avatar, Jagannadha Sastry meets Pooja (Pooja Hegde), a fashion designer (but not seen virtually anything), at the wedding of her cousin Vighneswara Sastry (Vennela Kishore). Pooja plays a joke on Jagannadha and disgusts him. Pooja discovers her glamorous side and plenty of skin too – she looks smoke in a swimsuit.
When Jagannadha confesses her love for her, she rejects it only to realize later that she also possesses romantic feelings for him. The moment of the epiphany comes when his influential Interior Minister Kusumam (Posani Krishnamurali) organizes a meeting with Chintu (Subbaraju), the son of the main antagonist Royyala Naidu. The long half of the film offers you nothing more than that. And a game of cat and mouse follows between Jagannadha and Naidu of course! I can not do more routine than that, do I?
Director Harish Shankar has proposed many interesting dialogues that can make you crack. One of them who stayed with us is “Bejawada antena painma Ammavaru, Kinda Kammavaru”. Shankar’s writing skills do not go unnoticed in the film, which follows the stock formula of every commercial potboiler. A single episode of the second half, where Jagannadham does not care about Chintu will break the story.
Rao Ramesh deserves a special mention for his performance and plays a villain on the T. In addition, we see the veterans of Tollywood Rallapalli and Chandra Mohan on the screen after a long time. Kalakeya Prabhakar has been making his own feelings through his role of fiery, with nothing new to offer as such. Subbaraju, Tanikella Bharani, Posani Krishna Murali and the other actors of the character do a decent job in their scope.
For the music that taps the foot and a background score, the musician Devi Sri Prasad deserves applause. The songs could, on the other hand, disappoint the fans for their picturization and also for not having their favorite actor make twerks to the music. It is only in the song ‘Seetimar’ that the actor gives you some kickass dance moves. The action sequences are fairly well done.
All in all, Duvvada Jagannadham will welcome not only the aged fans, but also the average cinephile to serve a huge mix of comedy, action and drama.
