Performances
Jayadev is the debut film for Ganta Ravi Teja, He has made an impressive effort within his scope and gave a decent performance. He excelled in emotional scenes but has to improve a lot in other things. The heroine’s role was restricted to glamor show. After a long gap, Vinod Kumar got a meaty role and has done justice. Rest of the cast Vennala Kishore, Paruchuri Venkateshwara Rao, and Siva Reddy are good in their roles.

Analysis

Manisharam’s music is not so pleasant, The BGM was good. Action part choreography was good. Production values are good. Dialogues about the police department are impressive.

Jayadev is Telugu remake of Tamil super hit film Sethupati.The director Jayanth could not convert the film to suit the Telugu audience. He tried to show the original content without making any changes. Basically, for this film, Police officer Jayadev’s emotions are very important, Sriram’s murder, followed by the incidents, Plays a key in the film. All these have worked out properly. But the love track between the lead pair completely failed. The body language of the hero and his smiles letdowns in romantic scenes.

However, some scenes really show the greatness of police department. In the second half, the entire films revolve around the battle between the Hero and the Villain. The film lacks pace in second half due to no exciting elements, twists, and thrills. The songs interrupted the storyline. During the climax, the director tried to rely on emotions.The actions scenes are exciting for the mass audience.
