Once upon a time lover Boy Uday Kiran had solid hits and a huge female following, which was decade before. But now no one is ready to buy his movies due to his continuous flops at box-office. Now his latest movie Jai Sriram releasing today, with Reshma (Ee Rojjullo Fame) in female lead. Let’s check out the review for more details.
Sriram Srinivas (Uday Kiran) goes on a killing spree eliminating criminals. In the midst of all this he bumps upon Reshma (Reshma) in Goa who runs away from her house to marry her boyfriend. But Adi Narayana (Aditya Menon) for some reason eyes Reshma to fulfill his desire to become CM. But much to the surprise of all Sriram Srinivas turns out to be an honest and powerful cop in Punjagutta area who is out to eliminate Adi Narayana game plan. He earlier ended his dad Chintamani’s organ trade.
Uday Kiran seems to struggle to salvage the film but his efforts are wasted because of the poor handling of the subject by the director. Newcomer Reshma fails to make a mark because her role is not well-etched. Interestingly, the villain’s antics bring laughs in the theatre, but comedy actors fail to even bring a smile on the faces of the viewers.
The technical department has done so badly in the film that not even one song is likeable. Cinematography is disappointing. Dialogues lack punch and there has been no rib tickling stuff. The screenplay lacks logic and credibility in its content and director Balaji seems to have taken on too many responsibilities. Director Balaji should be squarely blamed for accepting an amateur script and giving full freedom to artists. Editing is terrible. Production Values are middling.
Jai Sriram is certainly the most absurd Telugu film seen in recent times. It is just a hotchpotch of many sequences and does not have any particular story line. The film has plenty of inane and meaningless dialogues making it a tedious watch. On the Whole, Jai Sriram is a painful watch.
Survi Review: 0.5/5 (rated 0.5 more for respecting Uday Kiran’s 11th Continuous Flop)
