On the whole Julai is "You ll scold him, but u ll like him" kind.
10 August 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Starring: Allu Arjun,Ileana,Sonu Sood,Rajendra Prasad,Kota ,Brahmi & others Genre: Action/Comedy Story,Screenplay and Direction: Trivikram Srinivas Producer: S. RadhaKrishna Music: DSP Certification:U Release Date: 09/08/2012 Premise:

Raju believes in not believing the beliefs of regular life. Sweating for money is against his rules. But can risk it for quick bucks. His life converges with a robber who robbed a bank. The ranginess of these two with their way of reaching the end point is the plot. Synopsis:

Antagonist Protagonist Clash is the force of the film. Both seem to be aiming at same target but with different approach. Director implemented it efficiently. He took the help of his mind and more of pen to make it convincing. Theater was eulogizing for each and every knock dialog. In fact his dialogs are better seen and heard than written. It's a verbal feast with hero like Arjun doing no mistake to cop the expectations in every department. He tried his level best for proving the mettle and his desperation for a hit. There weren't any heavy performance oriented scenes or dialogs in the film. Bunny did his part quiet well. Ileana appeared famish and very thin though in some scenes she was look able. Rajendra Prasad lived to the mark. Whatever audience expect with this combination, AA and Trivikram, it's all there. Barini, Kota, Brahmi have their share under Trivikram's tree and others are enjoyable too.Shyam and Chota K .Naidu shared the camera work and presented the movie at level7 visual treat. DSP is energetic."Pakdo Pakdo is rocking num…….." so were the others. Action scenes went slightly over reality but still doable.

Trivikram didn't turn up after Kaleja and AA didn't turn up with a decent hit since few films. Both of them took utter care in religious handling of their jobs. Trivikram can be called the director with best "convincing" skills in industry. He is lucky as he is a writer himself so visualization is first on the paper while he writes down. But Khaleja seems to have everything in it still couldn't score .Same with his dialog work for TeenMaar. This time by teaming up with Allu Arjun and title like "JULAE" he made best use of his every ability.Two persons doing unlawful things still try to follow their own law. This is how story drives and later take turns. Sonu Sood character doesn't seem to be so much to be hated though he is the villain and Arjun cannot be taken side even he is the hero, such was pen work by Trivikram. There was a good clarity about the characters so audience wouldn't get confused. Arjun lend his hand in every move to make it appear impressive. Arjun was good looking and matured. Dance numbers are slightly below his usual energy levels, but still they didn't go overboard. Teaming up with DSP for a song is creative idea.Rajendra Prasad was used at his fullest, the veteran can still handle some more space .But as it's a commercial number he spaced himself. Movie seems to have good following in all centres from A-Z. On the whole Julai is "You ll scold him, but u ll like him" kind.
