A many number of people try to get into movies in anyway like actors and technicians but out of all these, a few succeed and get into the minds of audience. They create themselves, an identity with the work they do. Many come into movies with the help of their background and they test their luck with the possibility of ways they have. Ranjith is one such actor who is coming from a political background. Although he debuted a long back, he is now trying his luck again with Trikoti Peta, who made “Dikkulu Choodaku Ramayya”. Music for this movie is composed by MM Keeravani and is produced by Bharath Somi. This movie is released into theatres today and let’s see how Trikoti Peta and Ranjith succeeded in winning the hearts of audience.
Basavaraj Patil (Arjun) is attracted to Shruthi (Palak Lalwaani) in their school days. The principal of the school warns Basavaraj Patil on that and he kills the principal. He gets sentenced for 14 years for murdering principal and he vows to come out for Shruthi. Affected by this, Shruthi’s family moves to Hyderabad and she even gets her name changed as Aadhya. Raana (Ranjith) sees her and falls for her at the very first sight in love and he tries in various ways to get close with her. He comes to know about Basavaraj Patil as he gets released after the sentence and how he solve the problem of Sruthi with Basavaraj Patil forms the rest of the story.
Cast and Performance
Ranjith as Raana is good. He is good in mouthing his dialogues and he seemed at ease in his dances. Palak Lalwaani as Sruthi is nice. She looked gorgeous and also performed well and she looks good in pair with Ranjith. Arjun as an obsessed or psychotic lover is superb. He is an apt choice for the role. Posani Krishna Murali, Sapthagiri and others did fine work to generate humour. All other actors are good in their roles.
Story of this Juvva seemed routine and bad screenplay played an additional spoilsport. Dialogues are okay.
Songs composed by MM Keeravani are okay and his background score is fine. Though he is well known for his soothing and riveting score, he managed to show his skills with even the badly executed movie. Cinematography by Suresh is nice and visuals are good. Editing could have been much better to make the movie more racy. Production values are rich.
Routine Story and screenplay
Juvva is all about a lover saving his girl from the obsessive or psychotic guy who is in that obsession from the childhood itself. The first half is filled with some comedy scenes and lead pair’s love story and second half is filled with hero saving heroine type screenplay and it is dragged to the extent that audience can predict the next happening. Director Trikoti Peta, has chosen a routine script for his second directorial and he failed to get it right. He could have worked more on script before starting shoot. With the routine script in hand, he failed to make it on screen convincingly. This is the time where audience are rejecting routine and formulaic movies outrightly and it’s better to take a break rather than making lame movies which even fail to get noticed. Having a technician like MM Keeravani, won’t help in making movie successful, when the content we are making is not as good as the technician. To sum up, Juvva is a big disappointment for the makers, hero Ranjith and director Trikoti Peta who pinned a very high hope on this movie.
