Bujjigadu Movie Review

Youthful entertainment with taut screenplay clicks”. Seems Puri is hardcore believer of this funda. But, thinking too young sucks. You may question, how young is too young? Then, watch Bujjigadu.

Linga Raju, popularly known as Bujji is a boy who runs away from home at his 11th year when his neighbour cum close friend Chitti refuses to talk to him. He reaches Chennai and turns tough and admirer of Rajnikanth. He waits for 12 years to meet his love Chitti. As soon as he comes back to Vizag, lands in a trouble. That leads him to accept one crore deal to hit someone called Shivaji in Hyderabad. The execution goes other way and Bujji finds his love Chitti.

“Bujjigadu” with a tag made in Chennai, probably goes well with the fancies of teens. This formula movie with hero’s entry followed by a trap and so-called suspense in finding heroine lacks a convincing storyline. Generally, Puri Jagannath goes choosy about music in his movies. None of the songs are up to the mark. Dialogues are good but sound louder than the scene.

Prabhas is right fit for the title role as a stupid, self-confident and arrogant youth with coastal Andhra accent and different body language. Kota and his sons made a perfect group of baddies. And wish the movie makers had given a thought to cast Prakash Raj or some other new face for Shivaji’s (Mohan Babu) role. Cinematography and other technical elements teamed up brilliantly.

Things that gave mediocre touch to this movie should have been considered twice - ending the first part with “Saala I love you”, Trisha and Sunil at an FM Radio station, Mohan Babu’s dialogues, etc.

As Puri says, his hero is bold enough to handle any situation and, generally, rest of the characters also go easy in his movies. One feels life simple while watching Chaplin movies. Were they motivated him? If yes, it’s time he planned for such a melodrama. Picking up the action movie like “The Departed” and coating a bit of comedy and nativity may work out well only in few cases like “Pokiri”.

Bujjigadu, as the word implies, an ideal presentation for adolescents and school going kids. Puri, are you missing your youthful concept here or trying something still younger?

Jalsa Movie Review

The world in a man vs. A man in the world

The perspective of ‘living cool’, changes from person to person. Imagine yourself laughing loud when you feel happy... quit your job when you feel bore, snug in bed as long as you wish, booze whenever you want, free to learn-passion to teach, accept the noes easily, gutsy to question anything, live not too emotional and so on. Jalsa is such ease of a character, portrayed on big screen by Trivikram.

It’s a well presented movie though there are some missing links and elements to fine-tune the eclectic nature of hero. With background of a Telangana village and experience of a small farmer’s hardships Sanjay Sahu (Pawan Kalyan) knows what makes a person obliged to the power of money and evils.

His knowledge of society and the system’s impact on losing his family, prompts him to join naxal groups. Being active in the group, he differs with them on some fundamentals and practices. Their encounter with combing team headed by Prakash Raj and consequent events drive him to quit the battle path as a naxalite. He feels that he has nothing more to lose and develops a take-it-easy nature after the height of tough times and loneliness. Director failed to present this “grin and negligence” in a better way.

Except that, the movie shows lots of “Jalsa” throughout. Coming out of forests, Sanjay finds himself in young crowds of Hyderabad. Being an obsessive reader he stays in Osmania University as a student (for eternity! – bagging many degrees), enjoying goodtime with friends, getting scholarship and teaching martial arts.

His affair with Kamalini turns debacle as her father Prakash Raj refuses his plea (a tickling scene in the beginning of movie). As his life goes on with rocking evenings, hangover-mornings and the special days of convocations, he becomes close to Ileana after saving her couple of times from bullying. Unknowingly, it brings enmity with Mukesh Rishi.

If you could go illogical for a while, this movie offers solid entertainment with fun, music and of course Pawan Kalyan. Ileana looks pale while her ally Parvati Melton sizzles, though latter’s role has got little importance. Dialogues like “Fear needs no language” “I am not a salesman to convince you that life’s going to be good with me” are really well-written and situational. Devi Sri Prasad has done excellent work; “My heart is beating”, title song and “Gaallo Telinattunde” are taken well on screen too.

As the title sounds, this movie is an exploitation of “live it up” theme touching different shades of an eccentric personality.
