Jambavaan Movie Reviews

Jambavaan Review

It seems Kollywood is yet to come out of the 'Baasha' syndrome.

Director Nandakumar, inspired by the Rajinikanth starrer.

Prashanth enacts the role of an angry youth trying to clean the society of anti-socials after he loses his family to the baddies.

Prashanth has tried in vain to lift the movie. Nila and Meghna Naidu fit the glamour label appearing in song sequences. Vivek appears briefly in the movie.

Director Nandakumar has taken cue from a few 'mass films', but just has not managed to cobble them with any sense of purpose.

The movie is about Velan (Prashanth), a responsible son of a village landlord (Vijayakumar). Adored by the villagers for his good deeds, Prashanth gets a shock when Vijayakumar informs that he is his foster son.

A shocked Velan sets out on a mission to know about his past. He reaches Chennai and comes to know that his family members were killed by a dreaded gangster Deva (Fefsi Vijayan). He had then vowed to kill him and his gang. In the name of Jambhavan, he starts to kill rowdies in the society.

Suffering an injury in his head, Velan loses memory and is later adopted by Vijayakumar.

He comes to know that his job was just half-done. The rest is how he puts an end to Fefsi Vijayan and his men coming to Chennai.

Noted Classical vocalist T N Seshagopalan is also in the cast. He plays Prashanth's father, who is killed by the anti-socials.
