Jagapathi babu new Telugu Film Jai Bholo Telangana Movie Review:
This time Director Comes With an Telangana Sentiment, all Though He had very Great Expectation On this Film But It Seems To be Not Worked For Shankar. With big Influence of KCR on as He wrote the lyrics. This Will Not Helps the Film For Big Run In Theaters….
well Coming Into story Amma Odi, run by Jayamma (Smrithi Irani), provides shelter and food to the helpless. Her husband Bande Gopaanna (Jagapathi Babu), father-in-law and forefathers all died for the Telanagana in the long history of the movement. Now, her son Varshith (Sandeep) doesn’t want to become another martyr in his family by participating in the on going movement for separate Telagana state. He falls for the charms of Sahaja (Meera Nandan), who hails from Vijayawada. Rest of the movie is about how Varshith joins the movement and also wins his love against all odds.
Jagapati Babu donned three roles and he is convincing as Telangana martyr. It is a guest role for him though it is vital to the story of the movie. Smriti Irani is impeccable as the lady who inspires the people around. Gaddar danced for his own song
and he is extremely energetic and inspiring on the screen. The guy who did the role of Chari is commendable. The couple who acted as leads (Sandeep & Meera Nandan) and alright. Most of the cast in the film adds freshness (except for AVS, Nagineedu, Janardhan Maharshi, Siva Reddy).
Technical and Other Deparments:
Story – screenplay – direction: This movie has a love story set against the backdrop of the current Telangana movement. Director Shankar who has always been good when it come to capturing social problems made sure that there is an emotion while narrating the real incidents and struggles in the villages of Telanagana. However, the love story is not effectively narrated. He has juxtaposed the TV clippings with the happenings in the movie. Since Telangana is an ongoing problem, the director didn’t give any typical climax to the movie, but stated the wish of Telanagana fighters. Making a film on a subject like this is a difficult task. As a director Shankar has succeeded in showing the problems faced by Telangana people in villages. He has also criticized selfish leaders from all areas (including Telanagana).
Other departments: Music by Chakri is very good. Jai Bolo Telangana song and Gaddar songs are excellent. The title song was used as background music in key moments. I loved Gaddar’s awesome performance on screen in a song. Cinematography is alright. Editing by Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao is fine. Dialogues are well written.
The film is basically an attempt to promote a particular movement in the name of sentiment. While the first half is lighted with the regular elements of romance, some comedy and songs, the second half gets serious. Overall, this is a film with low quality technical values, poor and biased content. The very act of encouraging students to commit suicides or kill is a major blunder. At the box office, this will appeal to a select few while the rest will take it easy.
If you are a great fan of Shankar and his team watch it because it is Only For Telangana Lovers!!!
Other ones watch it at your own Risk…!!!!!!!
