Both Telugu and Tamil cinema have been synonymous with heartfelt family stories set in rural areas. While Bollywood has long since abandoned the family artist village roster (no, movies like Gangs of Wasseypur certainly don’t qualify), Tollywood and Kollywood continue to pit heroes against villains in rural settings, perhaps not with the same propensity as before. (Chiranjeevi, Rajinikanth and some other Southern actors of their time owe a large part of their stardom to such films), but fully aware of the importance of such stories to satisfy diverse demographic groups.

The tricky part is reinventing the formula because of the sheer volume that has preceded it. So does Nani’s Tuck Jagadish, a movie long overdue due to the COVID-19 pandemic and multiple theatrical closings, manage to walk that fine line between nostalgic entertainment and reinvention? Well, not quite, but that’s not to say it doesn’t deserve at least one unique visit, at least for Natural Star Nani fans.

So, are you excited about what to watch this weekend or what to watch this week and wondering if Tuck Jagadish is worth your time? Scroll down to see my full Tuck Jagadish review …

What is it about

Our protagonist, Tuck Jagadish (Nani), who derives his name from his obsession with having his shirt on the inside, returns to his ancestral village to find a recurring theme of siblings fighting and even killing each other over their parents’ property. . Things come to a head and Tuck has no choice but to change the entire village when his own older brother, Bose (Jagapathi Babu), ostracizes his stepbrothers and stepmother after the death of his father, Aadisesh Naidu (Nassar ). .

Check out the trailer for Tuck Jagadish below:

What heat

Tuck Jagadish is Nani’s show to the end and on credit for taking the film to the end, especially stroking a delicate balance between his star power and acting prowess during the wafer-thin, clichéd, repetitive formulated portions. Ritu Varma has very little to do, but her mere presence is like a breath of fresh air and the lead couple is well supported by Jagapathi Babu, Daniel Balaji, Aishwarya Rajesh, Parvathi T., Devadarshini, Rohini, Thiruveer, Nassar, Rao Ramesh and Naresh, all of them in excellent shape. It’s not that the performances only carry the film: the script and direction of Shiva Nirvana gave their moments, especially in the preparation, the metamorphosis of Bose and the conflict between Tuck, Bose and Veerendra (Daniel Balaji).

Furthermore, for a narrative that lasts over 2 hours and 20 minutes, and becomes progressively mundane, Prawin Pudi’s edition manages to keep it afloat. Prasad Murella ideally captures the village setting and S. Thaman’s songs may be a far cry from his best work, but like any seasoned hand he manages to make them go unnoticed without being intrusive.

What not

While Tuck Jagadish’s plot had potential and flashes with promise until about halfway through the stage, it is the execution that delves into the aforementioned formulated, cliché, repetitive and lean path. The conflict, which is well organized as mentioned above, is resolved in the most unimaginative and haphazard method conceivable. And, the main reason, the masala and larger-than-life moments that fans often watch such movies are also surprisingly few and far between, and what little there is is too disappointing to strike a chord, both with the action as with the massive scenes. barely playing a note.

BL verdict

It’s admirable that Nani tried a masala throwback movie to the village-centric Telugu movies of yore, but Tuck Jagadish finally turns into a formulated and cliched masala vehicle that surprisingly, even without enough massive moments, and it’s down to Natural Star Nani. To save the day until the end Fortunately, it’s backed by good preparation, competent performances from the rest of the cast, and a handful of moments that manage to stand out. I go with 2.5 out of 5 stars.
