So much was said about Tuck Jagadish and why it was released on the OTT platform. The film is streaming now on Amazon Prime and, read our review to find out whether the film has any juice in it or not.
Tuck Jagadish is the most loved member of the Naidu family. But when his father(Nasser) dies, so many issues arise amidst his brother Bose(Jagapathi Babu) and other sisters. How will Tuck Jagadish balance all of them and re-unite the family is the story of Tuck Jagadish.
Nani looks quite handsome and his costumes also enhance his character. But when it comes to the second half, he uses the same old voice modulation that is not good to see and looks over the top. Ritu Varma plays the village girl with perfection and her chemistry with Nani is also good.
Jagapathi Babu is cool in his role of a stubborn brother but he is getting repetitive in similar roles. Aishwarya Rajesh is very good in her role and does so well as the woman is torn between two families. Naresh, Rao Ramesh, and others do their jobs.
The story of Tuck Jagadish is ages old and has nothing new to showcase. A big head of the family passing away, issues erupting between the siblings, all this has been showcased in so many films in the ’80s already.
Shiva Nirvana gives this story his own edge and adds some action blocks. The first half has been established well and the story of siblings and their issues is brought in well and engages the audience.
But the moment, Nani makes an entry as the MRO, things look way too forced. His work is highlighted more and the family drama is put aside. The mother who is given much importance is sidelined in the second.
So many relationships break and they are also patched up within a fraction of a second in the climax. The villain angle is also weak in the film. In a way, emotions look good and create a decent effect but the film as a whole gives you a feeling of ‘Been There Done That’ kind of scenario.
Bottom Line – Routine Emotions-Nothing New
