Jayammu Nischayammu Raa Plot:

Sarvesh Kumar aka Sarva Mangalam (Srinivas Reddy) is a superstitious guy low on self-confidence and a staunch follower of godman Pitha (Jeeva). Sarvam secures a government job which he believes is possible only with Pitha’s blessings and lucky charm Rani (Poorna). With a posting in Kakinada municipal office, Sarvam shifts from Karimnagar leaving his widow mother alone. But Sarvam is surprised to realize that Rani is his colleague. He wants an early transfer to his hometown and going by Pitha’s instructions, Sarvam tries to impress and marry Rani for a better life. But after a series of unexpected events, Sarvam realizes that his low self-esteem has costed him in every possible way. In the due course, he locks horns with his philanderer boss JC (Ravi Varma) both on a professional and personal front. What happened to Sarvam, his love story and transfer forms the rest of the plot.


Srinivas Reddy: This comedian tries to impress us with his subtle act. With no chiseling body, unwanted heroism, floor movements, fights etc, Srinivas Reddy keeps it simple and cool playing the underdog. For all who are great fans of his sarcastic comic timing, this film is going to be something what you wouldn’t expect. But full marks to his choice of script, presentation and acting!

Poorna: She plays the role of a simple yet beautiful girl-next-door (Strictly next-door to hero Sarvam’s desk at office). This is indeed a cake walk for an actor of Poorna’s caliber and she is indeed flawless!

Ravi Varma: Still wondering how Ravi fits the bill so well for the role of a womanizer. Delivering exactly what his character needs but had it been put more meat, it would’ve been an interesting contest.

Trust us! It is Krishna Bhagawan, Praveen, Posani, Jogi Brothers, Rahul Ramakrishna (of Pelli Choopulu director’s Sainma Short film fame) & others who turn a key asset for the film with their comedy.


In this money-driven industry, many aspirant film directors often don’t mind making stupid films in the name of “commercial films”. But young director Shiva Raj Kanumuri deserves a tap on the back for coming up with a story that has roots in our villages/towns. 

This is an ordinary tale of a common man crippled by low self-esteem and few superstitions. Though this is not something new to us, Shiva Raj managed to dish out an engaging film. Inspite of the element like ‘Telangana hero in a coastal Andhra environment’, Shiva Raj was successful in making a respectful film. If not a comfortable command over storytelling, looked like this debutante director got a decent understanding of an ‘entertainer’ and hence his screenplay! He could keep the comedy quotient up throughout the film and the contribution of his comedy bandwagon is more than significant here. And the best part is that, it is not comedy for the sake of comedy but an integral part of the narration– now that’s the signature of a sensible director. Elements like using Powerstar image and Attarintiki Daredi posters (right from pre-release to MAATV telecast), WhatsApp reactions of the supporting cast show the wit of the directorial team.    

However Shiva Raj couldn’t score in the aspect of dramatic narration. Had this story been treated with the right dramatic touch and cinematic emphasis, it would’ve been a next level entertainer. The director prefers to keep it simple and cool where it promises to be crisp and exceptional.


- Lead actors performances especially Srinivas Reddy, Ravi Varma.

- Comedy of Krishna Bhagawan, Praveen & Posani.

- Engaging screenplay.


- Lack of proper cinematic emphasis.

- Overall Lag in the film.

Except for the most popular O Rangula Chilaka, the rest of the songs and back ground score by Ravichandra contribute less to the viewing experience. However, the way songs are blended into the narrative especially by a debutante director is worth mentioning.


The Production Design is commendable. 

Jayammu Nischayammu Raa Verdict:

Jayammu Nischayammu Raa is a clean entertainer with good content and intent- an appreciable attempt by debutante director Shiva Raj and Srinivas Reddy. No matter what the comedy (especially the popular ‘Mangalavaram Effect’) in the film should make you feel vindicated!
