Jilla, the 2014 Tamil hit is dubbed into Telugu with same title. Starring Vijay and Kajal Aggarwal in lead roles, this moving has hit the screens these days. Let’s see however it’s.
Sivayya (Mohan Lal) is a ruthless local goon in Vijayawada. He adopts Shakti (Vijay), son of his rights who dies during a local fight. Sivayya decides to create Shakti a police officer to continue his criminal activities.
Shakti reluctantly takes up the role of a police officer. During his tenure, Shakti regrets his misdeeds and decides to follow the path of honesty. He also requests Sivayya to change but everything goes vainly as variations arise between the each of them.How can the story unfold from here? Will both Sivayya and Sakti re-unite agin? That forms the rest of the story.
The major attraction of the moving picture is that the relationship between the daddy and his adopted son. The director represented the emotions quite well and notably the scenes before the interval are executed nicely. Also, a few of twists within thesecond half elevate the picture to a good extent.
Mohan Lal will an outstanding job and shouldered the picture with a terrific performance. His look and screen presence provides an additional advantage to the proceedings. Vijay also did complete justice to his character and his top notch acting in mass scenes are a treat to the audience.The last half an hour before the interval is that the major highlight of the picture. The surprising twists before the climax and Vijay’s role as a police officer will entertain the audience.
Minus points :-
Although this picture was a megahit in Tamil, it lacks bound parts to woo the Telugu audience. After the initial half an hour, the tempo within the story slows down completely until the pre-interval block. The scenes between Vijay and Mohan Lal within the second half required a far higher execution.Also, the scenes between Vijay and Kajal aren’t convincing and Kajal’s character required lots of establishment. The comedy track between Brahmanandam and different Telugu actors wasn’t executed perfectly and is a total minus for the picture. The abrupt ending is also a big disadvantage for the picture.
Director NT Neason did AN ok job with his execution. Music given by D.Iman impresses the audience solely to some extent however his background score is quite of sensible.
Cinematography by Ganapati Rajavelu is sweet as he captured the mood of the scenes in a beautiful way. Telugu dialogues written by Shashank Vennelakanti are decent. Editing is also OK.
The crazy combination of Vijay and Mohan Lal, did wonders in Tamil. But the samel magic couldn’t be repeated within the Telugu version. The acting showcased by both the superstars is very impressive. But the routine comedy, unconvincing romantic track, and below par songs are a big minus for the film. Overall, Jilla is just another regular commercial entertainer which will only impress the mass audience.
