Jaguar is touted to be one of the most high-budgeted debuts in recent times (reportedly squashed the record of Bellamkonda Sreenivas by a large margin). Well you have a golden duck (bangaru bathu – true translation) that has a hero and a money sack in hand with a single objective – a dream launch pad.
If the producer has got money, the director has a good collection of yesteryear commercial hits – and then Jaguar happened. Firstly switch on the ‘commercial film’ mode in your brain before you step into the theatres. Now the maze begins and you’ll slowly start feeling like Sridevi in Kshana Kshanam (when Venkatesh narrates his past) - “Ee cinema nenu chusa…”
It is the story of a young super smart (we mean in terms of intelligence) hero who steps into the arena to avenge his personal loss – sounds heavy right! But this revenge drama needs a heroine to romance, a clown to fool around (you know the “Hasyam”), a dumb villain to be toyed till the climax with the songs, out-of-the-world action episodes (from Yamaha Dukes to Tata lorries) as VAT! The first 20mins of the film will give you an idea of where you’ll end up. And you can wake up when Brahmanandam arrives after which the next stop will be Tamannaah.
Having said the above, a big ‘LIKE’ for the cinematography and grand production values! With hardworking young talent, exceptional supporting cast, top-notch crew the director has given us what we have been watching from a long while.
- Engaging performances by the cast
- Comedy of Brahmanandam
- Special Song by Tamannaah
- Production Values
- Run of the mill story and narration – bland writing.
