Behind the Screens
Bellamkonda Srinivas who bagged a cast failure with this first film, Alludu Seenu went on to bag a big disaster with Speedunnodu, the Telugu remake of Tamil blockbuster, Sundarapandian. The actor is teaming up with Star Director, Boyapati Srinu for a film, Jaya Janaki Nayaka releasing this Friday. Let us see how it fares with the audience.
Jaya Janaki Nayaka STORY: Gagan is very much in love with Sweety aka Janaki, a sweet-natured girl, ever willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. But she ends up rejecting Gagan and later finds herself in a situation from which there seems no escape. Why did Sweety reject Gagan and what does he do when he finds her in a dangerous predicament.
Jaya Janaki Nayaka REVIEW: For one man, it is a question of pride, for another, it is a question of love. To what extent will they go to stand up for what they believe in? Who will ultimately triumph in this clash of personalities?
Gagan (Bellamkonda Srinivas) and Janaki alias Sweety (Rakul Preet) are students of the same college. But Gagan is not your typical guy — the young man rejects the advances of girls and is extremely devoted to his father (Sarath Kumar) and brother (Nandu). Despite being very rich, Sarath Kumar has the reputation of being an alcoholic. But there is a reason behind this. Impressed by Gagan’s character, Janaki falls in love with him and he reciprocates. Her sweet, kind nature endears her to his family.
Jagapathi Babu plays Ashwit Narayana Varma, a business magnate and king of the ‘infrastructure industry’. Despite his riches, however, he is a person who values his pride above everything else. His nemesis is another ruthless baddie, Arun Pawar (Tarun Arora) and there is fierce competition between them to bag a prestigious project. Janaki’s father is a top government officer responsible for handing out the contract. Incidentally, he does not approve of Gagan.
The film essentially is an interplay of various circumstances among all these key characters, and ultimately poses threat to the well-being of Gagan and his family. What are those circumstances and how does Gagan face those challenges to protect his loved ones?
Jaya Janaki Nayaka is an out-and-out Boyapati Srinu film. The interval bang, true to Boyapati’s style, is praiseworthy and elevates the movie to a different level.
The action episodes have been shot well. Music by Devi Sri Prasad is a huge asset to the script, whose beauty lies in the fact that all the characters have been well etched out, giving each actor his due. Rakul is simply terrific as Janaki and her character is the pivot for the entire film. Srinivas shows improvement in acting, over his earlier two films.
Jagapathi Babu, Pragya Jaiswal, Sarath Kumar, Vani Viswanath, Shawshank, Nandu lend able support. The strength of the film is undoubtedly the characterization, Rakul Preet’s performance and Boyapati’s direction. For Srinivas, this film will serve as a platform to further make his way into the hearts of the Telugu audience and he has to thank Boyapati for that.
B & C Centres audience and mass audience eagerly await Boyapati Srinivas movies. He is a specialist in transforming class heroes into mass heroes. Allu Arjun has turned to mass hero with Sarrainodu. This Friday, Jaya Janaki Nayaka has hit the screens with Bellamkonda Srinivas as producer and Boyapati as director. This film is released world wide. Let us see how the class titles movie appeared to be.
