Jawaan Telugu Movie Review
Cast: Sai Dharam Tej, Mehreen Pirzada, Prasanna
Director: BVS Ravi
Music: SS Thaman
Banner: Arunachal Creations
Jai (Sai Dharam) is taught to be honest and patriotic by his father (Jaya Prakash) who is a teacher. On the other hand, his friend and classmate Keshav (Prasanna) chooses wrong path to glory. Jai is groomed in RSS and aspires to become a scientist in Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO).
Keshav joins hands with nation’s traitors and plans to hijack a powerful missile technology called Octopus developed by DRDO. Jai disrupts their plans. Keshav targets Jai’s family. So, it is Jai’s mission to save his family and country at the same time.
Jawaan has got an interesting concept and it delivers a sincere message to the youth. Protagonist aspiring to get into defense organization to serve the nation is inspirational and highly appreciable. There are many interesting ideas in the film like using social media to reaching out to many such Jawaan’s for nation’s interest. Script could have been in concise to make it more intriguing.
Director BVS Ravi chose to narrate it in linear, simple and straight. Without wasting any time the actual story starts from very first scene and flows with no conscious suspense or confusion intruded. He didn’t compromise with story by forcing comedy or entertainment and the honesty in narrating the patriotic story is commendable.
However, there is a romantic track between Sai Dharam Tej and Mehreen Pirzada which is natural and doesn’t disturb the proceedings. First half establishes hero and villain’s characters and the latter half is more of a mind-game between hero and villain.
The motive of the film is revealed in very beginning itself. Audience will be very much aware of what is going to be witnessed without many twists. There are some abrupt scenes without proper conclusions and some characters are not well defined.
Sai Dharam Tej comes of age as a performer. His screen presence to intense emotions, he stands out. Sai is lovable as Jawaan who goes any extent to protect family and nation. His dances are amazing.
Mehreen breezes fun and romance in the otherwise serious action thriller, she sizzles in songs. Prasanna is terrific as villain, his dubbing needs special mention. Jaya Prakash, Kota Sreenivas Rao and other supporting cast is good. Satyam Rajesh is wasted.
SS Thaman’s background score enhances the intended thrill in the scenes and also throttles the pace. His energetic and soulful melodies add pep to the film. BVS Ravi comes up with good theme and innovative ideas but scenes could have been more tightly bound. Direction wise, he trembles a bit at handling certain scenes in the film which could have been more appealing. Some very well written dialogues give goose bumps and few other are over dramatic as well.
Bottom-line: Jawaan is honest inspirational film with commendable effort by team
