PJ - Wealthy Zamindar
4 November 2015 | by suchipalemSee all my reviews

PJ (Nani) is the grandson of a wealthy zamindar. PJ is an irresponsible youngster who is spoilt by the pampering and excessive money. His grandfather writes a will with several conditions before he dies. Performance by Nani has come up with a spirited performance and he shows versatility in his body language. Srinivas Avasarala has given a valuable contribution with his role. His approach towards the role is quite natural and he gels with the flow in a nice way. The comedy in the first half is really good and some heart touching dialogues in the second half. Pros First half and Comedy. Cons are Overdose of sentiment. Overall the movie is good and should be watched once.
