Jaya Janaki Nayaka Performances:
It is Bellamkonda Sreenivas' third movie as a hero. It seems like Boyapati Sreenu has utilized Bellamkonda Sreenu's positives well. It is visible that Bellamkonda Sreenivas has improved so much in his acting. He has given his best in the songs and sentimental scenes apart from action sequences.
Heroine Rakul Preet's role is not just restricted to one angle. She is seen as an ordinary girl in the first part of the movie and then like a girl in neck-deep troubles in the next part of the movie. Her role has a scope and she has performed well too.
Jagapathi Babu as usually has appeared in a perky, stylish mode. His action is appreciated. Nandu also has tried to execute his role well. Sarath Kumar's role is quite entertaining. We can spot Vani Viswanath in this movie. Though the role has no significance, it is after a long time that we have seen Vani Viswanath on the screen.
Jaya Janaki Nayaka Analysis:
Jaya Janaki Nayaka is basically a love story. It has all the powerful mass elements the audience expect out of Boyapati's movies. Of course, there are a lot of emotions that go along with the story. Though the director has written an age-old story, it has interesting screenplay which makes the movie entertaining.
The mass elements are established from the very beginning of the narration and carried well all along. The mass audience will get connected to the way the director has written the lead scenes to the action elements.
Though it seems like a love story, one can evidently feel that the love story is not as strong as the hero-villain enmity. Here and there the action scenes are overloaded. But, the emotion around the scenes carries away.
The fight that has been picturized in Hamsaladeevi is one of the biggest highlights for the action sequences. The family audience will be quite entertained in all the scenes which have Sarath Kumar on the screen.
The production values are quite promising with richness bombarded. Devi Sri Prasad's music goes in sync with the story and the songs are good enough. Rishi Punjabi's camera work has worked really well and the credits are to be given. On a whole, it is a Boyapati mark typical action entertainer.
