Jump Jilani Reviewby MyMazaa.com
Satti babu (Allari Naresh), a hotel owner tries his hard for saving his legacy business Satyanarayana Vilas Hotel in Nidadavole which is running in loss. Satti Babu plans to attract Madhavi (Isha Chawla), a health inspector in order to save his business and the latter falls for him while Satti Babu’s twin brother Ram Babu (Allari Naresh) helps him. Meanwhile Madhavi’s grandfather (M S Narayana) fixes her wedding with a factionist Ugra Narasimha Reddy (Posani Krishna Murali). How will Satti Babu win his love forms rest.
Allari Naresh does his best to entertain in dual roles. His comic timing and dialogue delivery are hilarious.
Isha Chawla looks a bit fat and needs to shed the extra kilos while she has performed well. Swathi Dixit looks glamorous.
Posani Krishna Murali is an asset for the movie. He is apt for the role. Jaya Prakash Reddy, Raghu Babu brings some laughs along with Thagubothu Ramesh. Rao Ramesh, MS Narayana are wasted in poor roles. Other cast Dhanraj, Barath, Hema, Sana are there to fill the screens.
Music is mediocre and the songs are colorful and so is the background score. Cinematography is decent. Story is routine while the screenplay is clichéd. Direction by E.Satti Babu is poor. Editing is inconsistent, dialogues are good. Production values are standard.
Being an Allari Naresh starrer, audiences would throng to theaters expecting good laughs. But Jump Jilani offers nothing new but stale and routine comedy. In addition the pace of the film moves at snail pace in the first half. And it’s only in the second half, the real story and entertainment begins. Besides Allari Naresh in dual roles, Posani Krishna Murali is the real asset for the movie.
Logic goes for a toss and director Satti Babu goes out of track. The film falls flat in the first half despite the story has scope for loads of comedy. Though there are lots of good prominent cast, the comedy hardly works due to poorly scripted roles. This is just yet another film where the story shifts to seema backdrop in latter half and the climax is abrupt.
