Jil Movie Review
'Jil' is the story of a Fire Officer Jai (Gopichand) who was forced to fight back after a notorious gangster Nayak (Kabir) makes attempts to ruin his life. Why does Nayak wishes to take revenge on Jai? How did Jai overcome all the odds to save the people dear to him forms the crux of the story.
Gopichand: This is for the Second Time in his career (after Okkadunnadu), Our Macho Hero made a conscious attempt to reach out the Class Audience. He has put in his sincere effort to do complete justice and the result could be seen in every frame that he appears. Special mention for the dances which are his career best till date.
Raashi Khanna: She looks gorgeous, performs well and oozes glamour to emerge as a biggest crowd pulling factor for 'Jil'.
Kabir as Antagonist is very promising and he is an actor to watch out for. Posani Krishna Murali evokes laughter with his terrific comic timing. Rest of the cast is adequate.
- Raashi Khanna's glamour
- Style Quotient
- Interval Bang
- Second Half
- Routine Plot
Debutante director Radha Krishna Kumar carved a niche for himself with stylish presentation to a mass film like 'Jil'. He deserves credit for bringing a refreshing change to the Commercial Entertainers that's being made in TFI.
Ghibran's songs were already topping the charts and his background score is pretty impressive. He is likely to emerge as one of the Top Composers down South very soon. Shakti Saravan's Cinematographer is extraordinary. Dialogues pack a punch. Stunts designed by Anal Arasu were a treat to watch especially the rain sequence. Editing is crisp. UV Creations has earned a good reputation with the 3 films they delivered and the kind of passion they have for Cinema.
'Jil' have an entertaining First Half and not so promising Second Half. Raashi Khanna, Music, Cinematography and Interval Bang are the positives. You can give it a try!
Box Office: 'Jil' received good screen count and it is expected to do reasonably well in all the Centres. Even the Advance Bookings in Multiplexes are terrific and the openings could be the best in Gopichand's career. The Final Result could be estimated only after drawing comparisons between Pre-Release Business and Opening Weekend revenues.
Verdict: Style dominates Substance!
