Jadoogadu Movie Review
Krishna (Naga Shaurya), a small-time thug, reaches City with the only aim of earning exactly Rs 1 crore. Initially, He takes up the job of recovery agent and later joins the gang of a powerful Don to achieve his goal. Meanwhile, He happens to meet Parvathy (Sonarika) in a pub and falls in love with her. Without his knowledge, Krishna gets trapped in a Rs 2,000 crore drug deal and he has got only one choice left to save his life & lover. The rest of the story is about how he overcomes all the hurdles.
Naga Shaurya is someone who is equally good at doing both romantic & mass roles. After seeing him as a lover boy in 'Oohalu...' and boy-next-door in 'Dikkulu Choodaku...', His transformation for 'Jadoogadu' as a rough n tough guy is commendable. Good Looks, Terrific Screen Presence and Effective Dialogue Delivery will take him a long way. The energy and grace in few of his dance moves is mesmerizing.
Sonarika shares a sparkling chemistry with Naga Shaurya. She is damn sexy, especially in the ABC Song, and does everything required for the movie from her side.
Ajay is exceptional. Kota Srinivas Rao is too good. Ravi Kale is fine. Sreenivas Reddy and Sathya keep the audience in splits. Saptagiri's comedy track wasn't etched well. 30-Years Pruthvi as Anakonda plays a brief role. Rest of the actors does justice to their roles.
- Naga Shaurya's All-Round Show
- Sonarika's Glamour
- Gay Comedy Track
- Second Half
- Inconsistent Narration
Director Yogi delivered a decent entertainer like 'Chintakayala Ravi' in the past. He even assisted Apoorva Lakhia for the Telugu version of 'Zanjeer'. This time he choose to bounce back with 'Jadoogadu' which stars Naga Shaurya.
Sagar Mahati's songs and background score is pretty good. Cinematography is topnotch. Dances and Fights were composed well. Editing by MR Varma is fine. Production Values are appreciable.
'Jadoogadu' is a perfect commercial entertainer Naga Shaurya is wishing to deliver to reach out to the Masses. Yogi have a solid script in hand but falters when it comes to Narration at times. Still, 'Jadoogadu' isn't a bad film and had got some very good moments. The Climax twist will blow everyone's mind as no body is expecting it and all the loose ends were tied with perfect ending.
Box Office: 'Jadoogadu' released in 250-plus screens Worldwide. It has got the potential to do decent business but Openings weren't encouraging so far. Hopefully, The revenues pick up from evening shows.
Verdict: One Time Watchable!
