Directed by Karthik Subbaraj, ‘Jigarthanda DoubleX’ featuring Raghava Lawrence and SJ Suryah in the lead roles has been released in theaters today (Nov 10). The film turns out to be an uncertain but honest action drama. Scroll down for the Jigarthanda Double X Movie’s review.
Krupa (SJ Suryah) is imprisoned for murders which he had not committed. Alias Caesar (Raghava Lawrence) holds the whole area Kurnool in his hands with the support of politicians. Jayakrishna (Shine Tom Chacko) is a star hero, and he wants to make it big in politics.
He brings his younger brother (Naveen Chandra), who works as a DSP, to kill the four rowdies who are supporting his enemy politician. The DSP selects four people who are serving jail terms for various reasons. He instructs each of them to kill a rowdy. Krupa is assigned the job of killing Alias Caesar. With this, Krupa joins Caesar’s gang in the name of a director named Ray Dasan. Did the plan workout? How did the journey of Caesar and Ray Dasan go? What is the main intention behind Jayakrishna and politicians? Answers to these questions form the rest of the story.
Positives: SJ Suryah once again gives an impeccable performance while Raghava Lawrence gets a different role unlike usual comedy roles, and he was good. Nimisha Sajayan, Naveen Chandra were superb. Shine Tom Chacko and others were apt.
- Technical Excellence
- Right mix of Humor and Emotions
- Too many issues/plots
- Dragged Narrative in parts
- Heavy Emotions in the second half
Jigarthanda Double X Verdict:
Jigarthanda Double X is an uncertain but honest action drama which has a few flaws like boring parts in the initial part and heavy emotions at scenes before the climax. But the film works because of Karthik Subbaraj’s truthful narrative which is blended with good entertaining moments between SJ Suryah and Raghava Lawrence who make the proceedings engaging with their camaraderie. Overall the film can be a good experience, but it is not a regular entertainer.
