Director Bobby aka KS Ravindra’s Telugu movie Jai Lava Kusa (Kusha/JLK) starring Jr NTR, Nivetha Thomas, and Raashi Khanna has received positive reviews and good ratings from viewers. Jai Lava Kusa is an action drama with all the other commercial ingredients to woo the mass audience. Director KS Ravindra has written the script for the film along with Kona Venkat and K Chakravarthy. Produced by Nandamuri Kalyan Ram, the movie has got a U/A certificate from the censor board and has a runtime of 2 hours and 35 minutes.
The story of Jai Lava Kusa is about Jai (Jr NTR), who becomes a gangster to avenge his mother’s murder. After his mother is killed, his father (Posani Krishna Murali) goes on to marry another woman, and sires twins named Lava and Kusa — who grow up to become theatre artists. Jai thinks his father is responsible for the death of his mother and decides to take revenge on him by finishing his father and his family. What happens next forms the crux of the film. The audiences say Jai Lava Kusa is a routine revenge drama, but it has an entertaining screenplay. The first half is good, but the second half is not so entertaining.
However, the film is a grand treat for Jr NTR fans. Junior NTR, who has played three roles in the film, has delivered fantastic performances, and Jai Lava Kusa is his show all the way. His mannerisms, action, and dialogue diction are a feast for movie-goers. Nivetha Thomas and Raashi Khanna have nothing to do in the film, though their glamour and chemistry with hero are good. Ronit Roy, Nanditha Raj, Hamsa Nandini and others have done justice to their roles, say, viewers.
