Duvvada Jagannadham Movie Review : “DJ – Duvvada Jagannadham” is the combination of Stylish Star Allu Arjun and Entertaiment director Harish Shanker. Female lead Pooja Hegde in the film was produced by Dil Raju. The movie is coming among very high expectations by the trade for various reasons. Allu Arjun has just had a hat-trick of blockbusters and his popularity is at a peak right now. Moreover he is essaying the role of a Brahmin boy which earlier Natarudra NTR had experimented with in “Adhurs” which was a blockbuster. Than finally this is ace producer Dil Raju’s 25th film as a producer. Whether the film matches these expectations or not remains to be seen.
Story: Allu Arjun is a Brahmin boy living in a Brahmin colony (agraharam) and working as a cook. His profession is to cook in very big marriages and functions. In one marriage he meets Pooja Hegde and instantly falls head over heels in love with her. In the colony where he lives consists of prime land which is worth several crores of rupees upon which the villain Royyala Naidu (Rao Ramesh) casts an evil eye. He somehow wants to take over all that land.At the same time another villain based abroad eyes that land. He sends his gang to look into somehow taking over that land. The hero learns of these devious plans of the villain and bashes up the henchmen he sends to India. Later with the intention of dealing with the big villain himself, he gives himself a complete image make-over and goes abroad. Once he learns the identity of the villain he is shocked out of his wits. Why was the hero shocked upon learning the identity of the villain? What is the connection between the hero and this villain? How does the hero deal with Royyala Naidu? These are the issues upon which the story progresses.Bunny will unleash his powerful character during this time and the thrill choreographed will make the fans thrilled with joy. Harish Shankar directs this film which will be high on comedy and has some good comedians like Vennela Kishore in crucial roles.
Analysis:There is nothing novel in the story, however the director has handled it in his own unique style. He has successfully added elements that are bound to excite the audiences. The first half is full of comedy that is bound to leave the audiences in splits. It also contains the love story between the hero and the heroine.There are enough twists and turns in the story to keep the thrill right through. The pre-interval twist in the tale is really mind blowing and the audiences can’t wait for the second half to begin.The second half is as gripping and interesting as the first. The measures that the hero takes to counter the villain will keep the audiences thrilled. The second half also has a lot of side-splitting comedy. The action sequences here are bound to keep the mass audiences excited. The climax scene is the highlight of the film. In totality “DJ – Duvvada Jagannadham” is bound to sweep the audiences off their feet.
