The best successful mantra for Telugu Directors these days.. copying
from various films and "Julaayi" is no exception in this genre.
Trivikram. What Happened 2 U! Julayi is a mix bag of Hollywood Films. Allu Arjun- Sherlock Holmes. Sonu Sood- Prof.Moriarty+Joker(Dark Knight). Rajendra Prasad- Watson. Introduction Scene- Dark Knight Joker bank robbery Scene(COPY). Julayi Title Song Steps- Step Up-2(Copy). Car Chase Scene- 'Red' movie car chase scene+'2012' movie 'Car through Falling Building' scene(Copy). 'Money on fire' scene and villain calling hero- Dark Knight(Copy). Hero and Villain head 2 head scenes- The Mechanic(Theme Copy)+Sherlock Holmes'A game of Shadows'(Copy). Ileana-Jalsa characterization and Looks(Xerox Copy).
But Trivikram own talent is duologue's which is the main asset for this movie.
Julayi is Trivikram's Magic all the way, he deserves 100% accolades for
his story telling , dialogues and screenplay. The first half of the
movie runs at a decent pace and entertains you thoroughly with
Trivikram's punch dialogues in comedy. The second half has good comedy
as well with action . The movie lacks the romantic scenes between the
lead pair and definitely Illeana failed to give a glamorous
performance. Though we will feel that there is lack of gripping scenes
and most of the things happen very easily for the hero, one of the
scene to mention which describes the whole AP State police is helping
him without any proper reasoning or logic and you will feel
disconnected from the movie a bit and is not convincing but given the
entertainment quotient we can ignore them.
Julayi has all the elements to become a Super Hit or Even a Blockbuster if it was more gripping and had some emotions to it, Telugu Audience likes emotions and sentiments which were totally missing here . It would have been nice to see some gripping sequences but the Director main concentration was on Entertainment and he delivered it with fulfillment. Some of the scenes in the movie does not exhibit the necessary logic but things always happen in favor of the Hero.
The entertainment portion of the movie is on par with the blockbusters like Dhookudu and Gabbar Singh, and Julayi has all the ingredients of a successful movie. It has all the commercial elements of a successful movie and will definitely become one of the Best in Allu Arjuna nd Trivikram's career so far.
Trivikram dialogs superb, but it will take time to get into the
audience . nice comedy... but boring fights, chasing's. and we cant see
Illiana in last 40mins... Arjun costumes superb.. he is looking bit fat
in this movie. The story is set on the backdrop of Vizag and here lives
Ravi (Allu Arjun) who is having common sense. But unlike the regular
youth, he wants to earn money in short span. He takes some money from
his father and sets into IPL betting. In this process, he met Bittu
(sonu) who is a planning for robber bank. Bittu and his gang rob a bank
and Ravi manages to get him arrested. With this, his life is in danger
and Ravi is sent by the police to Hyderabad for protection. He starts
staying with ACP Sitaram Rao (rajendra prasad). He also meets Madhu
(ileana) and falls in love. The first half goes on a mix of serious and
lighter note with elements of comedy and some action. The second half
also goes with the same momentum but overall it is the humour that
for first time viewers it would be Avg film.... it may get into audience like Athadu... :)
It is very disgusting to watch an "innovative" director Trivikram's
"Celluloid"-Julayi.....He has joined the bandwagon of mundane directors
of tollywood. Movie looks pretty good to watch for general telugu
audience who have not had a glimpse of recent Hollywood blockbusters.
Trivikram should have used his literary skills on authentic themes
which are supposed to be developed by him. The punch liners,comedy and
humor are great and are a routine feast like many of trivikram's
movies.. Allu Arjun has not been fully utilized in dance...It is
embarrassing to watch him walking forward for a thumping beat... Ileane
is good and all cops were made fools in this movie..
Mr.Trivikram please do not let telugu cinema down with plagiarism. It is my humble request.
I respect Trivikram a lot....and a large part of this respect mainly
due to the brains he puts in writing scripts....if u follow Telugu
movies regularly then u know that Trivikram is not a small name in
TFI....He is the reason for success of films like Nuvvu Naaku
Nachchaav, Athadu, Nuvve nuvve etc. All these films involve average
plots but excellent writing and hilarious comic performances. As far as
Trivikram is concerned he started losing the grip since jalsa (2008)and
julayi one such lazy attempt from this ace director......it clearly
shows on the screen that no effort is put in writing it relies heavily
on star power of allu arjun and some respite is provided by rajender
prasad with a weak role other actors do their role as per scope.....but
movie offers nothing new.....its a pity that he lifted dialogs and
scenes from the dark knight!!!!!
watch it if you have nothing better to watch
I am totally disappointed after watching the movie,the movie is lacking everything in it except for the routine telugu hero extra ordinary powers... Only positive features in the film are Trivikram sir's dialogs which lasted only in the 1st half and of course the dance by allu arjun who brought new standards in the field of dancing for the industry... Apart from these 2 things everything else is awful.....robbery scene was childish spoiling the fame of dark night scene, Ileana role lasted for very short duration and has no much importance, finally entire police department relies on allu arjun for catching the villain and for other police jobs. Where is the trivikram sir who directed Nuvve nuvve,Athadu and Khaleja where he gave utmost importance to comedy,relations and characters along with their values rather than violence and action episodes...All telugu people miss that old trivikram sir and as of me i don't like this new style of trivikram sir where he also takes movies in which a hero will have extraordinary strengths and can kill any number of men who come in his way, the one who can run faster than Scorpios moving at top speeds which was shown in this film.
After the disaster of khaleja (commercially) Director Trivikram Srinivaas came with a beautifully molded Crime action comedy. Allu Arjun with a different look and ease in his performances took the film to a different level. The story revolves around a robbery committed by an ex-minister who want to spent the money in his next elections. Unfortunately,the money was missed and the antagonist caught by police with the help of Protagonist. The antagonist ego hurts. How the protagonist fought with the bad ass and surrender the stolen money to police is the remaining story. As usual the punchy dialogues of writer cum director Trivikram Srinivas was nice and crisp. The music of Devi Sri Prasad was perfect match to the director vision. And the last, A perfect mind game.
A very disappointing movie from Trivikram. I can understand if he gets
inspired by a few Hollywood movies but ripping of scenes and dialogues
is not commendable. I seriously could not find any intelligent plot
between the lead character and the villain. I think this is the first
movie where Trivikram has penned dialogues illogically. The second
being Attarintiki Daredi. The only refreshment in the movie is Rajendra
Prasad who was at his natural best. Certain scenes in the initial bank
robbery are so stupid. Why do you have to break open the locker using
drills when you break open the locker with a demolition crane ? I hope
telugu directors work on their script and screenplay before they put it
on the big screen. Have a quality team to discuss on the story and
script and Identify all the loop holes and mistakes before the shoot.
A humble request from a telugu cinema fan.
PS: When you rip off scenes like this from Hollywood it makes us think twice when you say 'Kill Piracy'. Hope you understand.
Thanks and All the Best.
*** This review may contain spoilers ***
after i watched this movie i felt it as one of the best ever but later when i watched Nolan's dark knight i completely lost respect to 3vkrm.JULAYI is just a dark knight without batman and some comedy added.One who watches Hollywood films can say how much Julayi has been copied.Sonu Sood character is more like joker's,Allu Arjun is more like Robert Downey Kr's famous character sherlock Holmes,intro bank robbery scene is Xerox copy from dark knight(only difference is in dark knight is day time and in Julayi it is night time).Also comedy dialog dog chasing cars from dark knight is copied.But still in many places 3vkrm showed his creativity.They didn't credit Nolan so it is an illegal COPY.
Okay, after watching Routine Love Story anything would have to be a
massive improvement so maybe I am being a little too easy on Julayi but
overall this was a enjoyable enough way to spend an evening. Naturally
it is highly derivative and sometimes it is very difficult to ignore
the sudden thought popping into your head of where you have seen this
scene before but at least the disparate scenes were put together with
On the plus side the whole film does not seem to take itself too seriously, it rocks along at a reasonable pace and it does not overstay its welcome at all. On the negative side some of the jokes are a little forced, some of the acting is a little annoying, inevitably the item songs took you completely out of the film, some of the ADR was poor, some of the actors cannot lip sync to save their lives and there is not enough of Ileana especially in the last quarter of the film.
The direction was solid, the cinematography was good and overall a not exactly taxing way of spending a few hours. However, it does illustrate how bereft of ideas modern Indian cinema seems to be as far as making films is concerned - it really is far too derivative to be anything but a pleasant interlude on an otherwise boring day. Okay Hollywood at times is just as bad but that is no excuse for others to follow the same path of lack of originality.
