Jyo Achyuthananda isn’t a triangular love story as expected but in fact the story of three characters and two brothers.
Hence, the director laid a convincing foundation for his story establishing his characters well leaving you interested. The plot, the characters and humour in the narration absolutely reflect Avasarala’s sensibilities and style. His characters Achyuth, Anand and Jyo will engage you with their drama filled with fun all through the first half. The conflict slowly intensifies giving us enough reason to come back soon (from the intermission break).
However, Avasarala could handle the second half that can be the interesting entertainer it deserves to be. Boredom eventually seeps into the second half and Avasarala’s humour couldn’t just save it. The director who could plant the conflict well couldn’t untie it properly. His treatment is quite lackadaisical and on top of it, the conflict is extended due to the nature of the characters and as usually a happy ending is coerced right after a melancholic song.
In short, a strong foundation doesn’t get a deserving slab!
- Story and screenplay
