Siddharth and Samantha New Telugu Film Jabardasth Movie Review:
Exactly a year after the release of his last movie Love Failure, actor Siddharth has made a grand comeback with his latest outing Jabardasth, which is released as Dum Dum Pee Pee in Tamil. Sid has teamed up with Samantha and Nithya Menon for this movie. Written and directed by Nandini Reddy, the film seems to have been inspired by hit Hindi film Band Baaja Baaraat. It is very entertaining and engaging and Sid is the showman in it.
Running away from his creditors, Byrraju (Siddharth) lands in a marriage hall. We are told that he failed in all his business ventures and landed in Hyderabad to settle in clandestinely. He eavesdrops in the conversation of Shreya (Samantha) with her friend and learns her plans of getting job at city’s leading wedding planner. He goes to the wedding planner first and tells all the ideas he heard from Shreya to the planner and clinches the job. Shreya comes to know that Byrraju overheard her conversation with her friend and confronts him. They soon become friends and start floating their own business of an event management company. She soon falls in love with him but he has other ideas. Rest of the drama is the usual lovers’ journey that ends on a happy note.
Siddharth has tried another mass masala role in his career after Baava film. Samantha is pretty good. I liked the way her character is introduced in Pelli Choopulu scene and I wish the director continued same playfulness in Samantha’s characterization throughout. Nitya Menon has the uncanny habit of hogging the limelight whenever she shares screen with any other actor. She is a surprise package in the movie. Sayaji Shinde is portrayed as a goon from Bihar who is in search of Byrraju (a character that is similar to that of Asish Vidyardhi in Ala Modalaindi). Telangana Sakuntala has done another typical role. Srihari did the role of a mafia don based in Malaysia. A don who is overly sentimental about his family members. Dharmavarapu Subramanyam and Nalla Venu did the roles of feminine dance masters. It’s another swinging cake walk for Thagubothu Ramesh in a drunkard role. The guy who has acted as Siddharth friend in Love Failure has done another important role in this movie. He is good. Pragati, Kasi Viswanath and Swapnika Reddy did the roles of Samantha’s family members.
Techincal and Other Departments:
Music by Thaman is okay. Meghamala song is shot with different and hilarious themes. Arere is a good melody. Cinematography is good. Dialogues are neat. Art direction is good and the sets erected for Teesmaar Khan and Meghamala offer variety. First half of this film had pretty good in-film branding for a film events company Shreyas Media. Editing is fine and production values are good.
Nandini Reddy who has done a tender and romantic film like Ala Modalaindi changes the gears and tries her hands at a Priyadarshan kind of nonsensical comedy film with actors like Siddharth and Samantha. The posters of this film proclaim ‘from the director of Ala Modalaindi’ and one should keep neither Ala Modalaindi nor Band Baaja Baarat in mind while watching this movie. We have to wait and see how audiences embrace the movie.
Overall, Jabardasth is a decent entertainer and it will be a treat for comedy lovers. Don’t miss it if you are a fan of Siddharth.
