Performances

This is the third film for Bellamkonda Sai Srinivas. His strengths and weaknesses are noticed by Boyapati. Srinivas’s talent will be seen in action and dance scenes. He is far from good and fails to perform in emotional sequences. His physique suits action sequences well, but his antics are un bearable. Basically, He lacks emotions. His Emotional dialogues in Climax are not up to the mark. The character of Rakul is going to have two sides. In the first half, she looks like a bubble girl with a lot of energy but in the second half, she becomes de-glamourous facing a lot of problems.Jagapathi Babu looks more stylish in this film. Nandu also got a good role. Sharat Kumar’s acting and the scenes around him are good. Yesteryear heroine Vani Viswanath role is quite interesting.

Technical
In every scene of the film, the lavish production values will reflect.Devi Sri Prasad’s background music is great. The lyrics are impressive in the song ‘veede veede’. Rishi Punjabi camera work is another major attraction. Catherine item song looks good, Boyapati Srinu showed his mark. Fights are excellent especially the Hamsaladeevi fight in the water. The story and the twists in the storyline are not effectively presented on the screen.

Analysis
Jaya Janaki Nayaka is a love story, What did a young man do for a girl he loved? On whom he wage war? is the theme. The theme is surrounded by action and emotion scenes to form the story. Boyapati Srinu’s main strength is action. He always chooses the story with action & mass masala. He did the same this time.

From the beginning, the film will go with an emotion drive. Director should be given credit for writing the lead scenes before the action episodes. This makes the mass audience to connect to the action scenes. The director was able to show effectively as how a girl was crushed between Pride and stubbornness. The Hamsaladeevi action episode will be the major highlight in the film. The scenes featuring Sharath Kumar will be received well by the family audience.

Although this is a romantic love story of the hero and the heroine, the director gave more priority to the emotions between hero-villain than romance. Countless action scenes make it a Boyapati mark film. Interval block is major plus point for the first half. It’s undoubtedly Boyapati trademark interval episode, Terrific interval block with a major twist in the tale. Overall it’s a Very predictable story which suits for the mass audience.
