NTR’s most awaited Jai Lava Kusa is out in theaters now. The film released amid high expectations from all corners. NTR’s terrific portrayal of Jai tripled the curiosity factor on Jai Lava Kusa, in which the actor did not one but triple roles. NTR excelled in his triple role with his spectacular performance, but director K.S. Ravindra couldn’t raise his game to the occasion. A lackluster screenplay and ordinary director made Jai Lava Kusa strictly average fare in spite of Tarak’s supremacy.
Separated brothers Lava (NTR) and Kusa (NTR) accidentally meet in a car crash. Lava is a bank manager and Kusa is a thief. Kusa comes to know about Lava’s problems and tells him that he would solve all his problems. Kusa has an evil plan in his mind that Lava isn’t aware of. As Kusa steals money from the bank and Lava finally impresses his girl (Rashi), someone kidnaps her and also robs the money. Lava and Kusa realizes that it is their brother Jai (NTR) who did this. Jai is an evil person who wants to excel in politics. But he stammers which would be a hindrance for political speeches. So Jai wants Lava to take care of his political campaign and Kusa to impress his lady love (Nivetha).
NTR: It is impossible to put NTR’s incredible performance into words. His portrayal of Jai is one of the best in recent times. As Lava and Kusa there isn’t much challenge to the talented actor, but Jai is a complex character with suppressed emotions and pain. NTR just made it look easy in spite of putting in a lot of efforts into playing Jai. It is a treat to watch him as Jai, the evil man who had a very rough childhood.
Others: Rashi Khanna has a limited role. She plays the typical Telugu cinema character that suddenly realizes her love upon the hero. Nivetha Thomas also has a limited role. She got some fine moments to exhibit her acting talent though. Sai Kumar is fine and Posani is alright. Frankly speaking, there is not much to write about any other actors as it is totally a one-man show by Tarak.
Unlike many commercial films, Jai Lava Kusa has a solid story. The conflict between the brothers and the rivalry of Jai with his brothers has been established pretty well at the beginning itself. Childhood episodes are well shot with nice dose of emotions and drama. However, the graph hits downsiide soon after the introduction of grown up characters.
Introduction of Kusa character is plain ordinary. There is nothing entertaining or exciting about it. Lava character is introduced without much delay, but his story is very boring with unconvincing drama and lethargic narration. Even Kusa entering into Lava’s shoes with a cunning plan didn’t turn out as expected. All the portions involving Kusa and Lava in the first half are boring barring a few laughs.happy wheels
