Movie : Jaffa
Wait is over for Tollywood movie lovers! Jafa who created a sensation with just one trailer hit the screens today. Let us see whether vennela Kishore can come out of his previous flop vennela 1.5 with this film.
Much sought after criminal Jasimine Falguna (Jafa) lands himself in jail where he tries to solve the problems of prisoners. For people who wonder how could he solve problems, earlier he used to work as a software engineer under sadistic boss(Melkote) but finds in jail thanks to his colleague Sujit who commits suicide mentioning Jafa's name.
Jafa and jailer Viki(Vennela Kishore) sketches a plan to escape from prison. Whether they will be successful in there efforts should be found on silver screen.
Brahmanandam bought in various kinds of expressions and vennela Kishore is spontaneous. Others like Ali, Sravan,Dhanraj,Raghu Babu had limited scope for performance.
There is a feeling that Vennela Kishore must have been in a hurry to cash into the response the trailer got. So much so that he did not come with any story and failed miserably in screenplay and direction. Though Vennela Kishore tries to be different he is unable to convince movie lovers and able to take them along with the story.
Kishore failed to extract comedy from Brahmanandam and in a way failed people as many expect comedy from Brahmanandam and nothing else. This made many leave theaters in the first half itself. Viewers were heard remarking its better Kishore pulls shutters to his directiorial dreams and do acting without making noise. Second half tests the patience of the people with slow and dragged sequences. Mnay are left scratching their heads about the incidents in jail.
There is nothing to speak about techincal department as it is a complete failure. While BGM is horrible, dialogues are substandard and people are saved of songs as there are none. Production values are average.
Jafa jolts movie lovers 'Jolly' mood making them Jaffas!
