“We are not promising this film has twists and turns and concepts that you have never heard before,” Nani had mentioned at the trailer launch occasion of Tuck Jagdish. In retrospect, it seems like a preemptive assertion towards anticipated criticism that this movie might face for being, say, too predictable or unoriginal. Nani might now come again and say, ‘Hey, I told you not to expect anything new, didn’t I?’
As Nani promised, Tuck Jagadish, at the danger of utilizing a cliche, is previous wine in a brand new bottle. Director Shiva Nirvana, who has additionally written the movie, hardly makes an effort to make this movie his personal. He appears to have borrowed, rehashed and refurbished concepts and the philosophy of all hit melodramatic movies that he has ever watched with none worth addition.
The narrative of Tuck Jagadish works like clockwork. You know what’s going to occur in the climax about 10 minutes into the movie. Composer S. Thaman’s rating has some redeeming qualities however that’s hardly a comfort in a movie like Tuck Jagadish. Neither the visible type nor the performances of the actors are worthy of analysing. You can just about summarise them as useful.
Let’s speak about the concept of the household that this movie presents. It was speculated to show that our household is all the pieces and it’s price going by means of any troubles to guard it. But, its very principle defeats the movie’s sole function.
Judging from the movie, the well-being of a joint household solely depends upon the willingness of all its members to share the inheritance equally amongst themselves after the passing of the patriarch. If one is slightly too grasping, or a tad cussed, the concept of household collapses, as brothers and sisters flip towards one another and the material tears.
In a scene, Nani’s Jagadish Naidu makes use of wealth as leverage to carry the warring members of a household to the negotiation desk and dealer a strategic peace deal between the events. He makes use of this trick even on his family. While it appears very prudent and paints Jagadish as a realist, it’s anticlimactic for a movie whose sole function is to make us see that the household is extra essential than materials wealth.
Bosu Babu (performed by a tired-looking Jagapathi Babu) hates his stepmother Anjanamma (Parvathi T) as a result of she shouldn’t be his precise mom. It shouldn’t be the similar blood, you see. And household bonds are stronger after they have a blood connection, proper?
Bosu Babu has a change of coronary heart in the direction of the finish as anticipated. But, the change doesn’t occur as a result of he understands that the concept of household transcends the limitations of blood relations. It occurs for a extra standard and egocentric cause.
Jagadish makes use of threats and money to repair household issues. This movie doesn’t talk about the profound, heartfelt and intangible worth of the household. All characters on this movie are keen to contribute to the concept of household so long as it’s worthwhile and handy for them.
So what’s the function of Tuck Jagadish?
