the latest film from senior director v. Samudra, Jai Sena, a social drama based on the problems of farmers, hit screens on January 29, 2021. Let’s see how it goes.
Inspired by the ideologies of Pawan Kalyan, four agricultural engineering students played by Karthikeeya, Abhiram, Praveen and Harish Gautam decide to help farmers build an irritation elevation project in their village. in the process, they approach their election as minister mla cum reddy (madhusudhan rao), and ask him to support their cause. As the MLA refuses to sanction the project, the four friends loot Rs 200 crore from the minister’s illegal bank accounts. is this the moment when a tough cop named devadas (sunil) enters the scene? how will the friends handle devdas and ml form the rest of the story?
Four newcomers Karthikeeya, Abhiram, Praveen and Harish Gautam did a decent job in the lead roles. they tried to carry the film on their shoulders, which is appreciable.
sunil as an aggressive cop is good with his acting. although he enters the scene only after forty-five minutes, the process begins to gain momentum only after his entrance.
srikanth, taraka ratna, and sreeram are doing well in their extended cameos. comedian prudhvi gets decent laughs in the first half of the movie.
Although the film is about farmers and the problems associated with them, most of the subplots shown end abruptly. As the movie lacks a proper setting in the first half, things look tedious with boring college scenes, which is a big drawback for the movie.
As stated above, the film gains some momentum only after it enters the pivot point in the second half. But the unwanted deviations like elevating Sunil’s character and inserting Prudhvi’s comedy completely spoil the mood of the audience. the lack of proper commercial elements and a noisy atmosphere are also negatives for the film.
as main director, v. samudra came up with a decent story related to farmers, but failed to tell it in an engaging way. he should have executed the story even better by spending more time on the script and dialogue version.
nandamuri hari’s edit is apt since most of the movie’s scenes end abruptly. the film work is fine, as is the music. the film’s background score is too loud and noisy. the production values of this limited-budget movie are decent.
Overall, jai sena is a social drama based on farmers’ troubles but lacks procedural depth. Although the film has some good episodes here and there, the storytelling suffers from several gaps, making it a sub-par movie content.
