“We aren’t promising this movie has twists and turns and ideas that you’ve by no means heard earlier than,” Nani had said at the trailer launch event of Tuck Jagdish. Looking back, it seems like a preemptive assertion towards anticipated criticism that this movie may face for being, say, too predictable or unoriginal. Nani may now come again and say, ‘Hey, I advised you to not count on something new, didn’t I?’
As Nani promised, Tuck Jagadish, on the danger of utilizing a cliche, is previous wine in a brand new bottle. Director Shiva Nirvana, who has additionally written the movie, hardly makes an effort to make this movie his personal. He appears to have borrowed, rehashed and refurbished concepts and the philosophy of all hit melodramatic movies that he has ever watched with none worth addition.
The narrative of Tuck Jagadish works like clockwork. You realize what’s going to occur within the climax about 10 minutes into the movie. Composer S. Thaman’s rating has some redeeming qualities however that’s hardly a comfort in a movie like Tuck Jagadish. Neither the visible fashion nor the performances of the actors are worthy of analysing. You possibly can just about summarise them as useful.
Let’s speak concerning the concept of the household that this movie presents. It was speculated to show that our household is every little thing and it’s value going by means of any troubles to guard it. However, its very principle defeats the movie’s sole function.
Judging from the movie, the well-being of a joint household solely is dependent upon the willingness of all its members to share the inheritance equally amongst themselves after the passing of the patriarch. If one is a little bit too grasping, or a tad cussed, the thought of household collapses, as brothers and sisters flip towards one another and the material tears.
In a scene, Nani’s Jagadish Naidu makes use of wealth as leverage to convey the warring members of a household to the negotiation desk and dealer a strategic peace deal between the events. He makes use of this trick even on his family. Whereas it appears very prudent and paints Jagadish as a realist, it’s anticlimactic for a movie whose sole function is to make us see that the household is extra essential than materials wealth.
Bosu Babu (performed by a tired-looking Jagapathi Babu) hates his stepmother Anjanamma (Parvathi T) as a result of she isn’t his precise mom. It’s not the identical blood, you see. And household bonds are stronger once they have a blood connection, proper?
Bosu Babu has a change of coronary heart in the direction of the tip as anticipated. However, the change doesn’t occur as a result of he understands that the thought of household transcends the boundaries of blood relations. It occurs for a extra standard and egocentric purpose.
Jagadish makes use of threats and cash to repair household issues. This movie doesn’t communicate concerning the profound, heartfelt and intangible worth of the household. All characters on this film are prepared to contribute to the thought of household so long as it’s worthwhile and handy for them.
So what’s the aim of Tuck Jagadish?
