Heroine Pooja Hegde does not have the scope of the performance, But her Glamor Show is impressive. she gave a tough competition for Allu Arjun dance in songs. Rao Ramesh once again showed his varsity as a villain as Royyala Naidu. He poured life into the character with his body language, dialogue delivery, and acting. Rest of the characters Murali Sharma, Posani Krishnamurali, Tanikella Bharani, Chandra Mohan, Vennela Kishore and Subba Raju, have done justice to their roles.

Technical

The dialogues of Harish Shankar have workout properly. Devi Sri Prasad is the biggest asset for the film, Right from title song to BGM, everything is perfect. Bose’s camera performance is like an eagle dinner. Dil Raju’s production values appear at every step of the screen.

Analysis

Duvvada Jagannadham is basically a revenge drama of a Brahmin boy. The movie looks fresh as the plot of the film was woven around the lead character. The makers have highlighted the most talked issue in AP which is about the financial crime of a company.

Director Harish Shankar is a specialist in the creation of mass commercial entertainers, has once again shown his mark. Although the Hero’s character is a Brahmin the director has not missed mass elements. DJ is a regular revenge plot, but the director has impressed with his taking and execution.

In the first half, the film has a gripping story of comedy, action and romantic scenes until Interval. Interval Bang is also good. The second half runs accordingly to the audience expectations with nothing more to tell, Some twists are interesting.

The film is good until the pre-climax but the climax has disappointed a bit . The movie completely changes its mood from action to comedy during the climax .However the comedy was entertaining, But lost the intensity.
