How well can you present a simple,feel-good movie that it will leave you spellbound with its inimitable positive vibe and heartfelt connection that you make with its characters - The answer is 'Jacobinte Swargarajyam'.Stellar performances,refreshing narration,sparkling visuals,fitting musical score and the warmth of togetherness in each frames makes this one a special film from Vineeth Sreenivasan and team that will stay close to your hearts for quiet a long time.
It's been some time since I watched a movie like JSR that's brimming with such immense positive energy and optimism that it will have a purifying effect on your senses once you are done with the movie.The humongous response from the families in the form of unanimous claps and the smiling faces of the viewers after the show is testimony of the impact of this simple film that's taken to another level by master-class direction by Vineeth,who have showcased his mettle in presenting human emotions so convincingly and impactfully on the silverscreen.
Based on the true story of Vineeth's friend Gregory Jacob and his family,JSR tells the story of Jacob,an NRI businessman and his family,the bondage between them,their emotions and faith in each other and God.The movie certifies the eternal truth that the biggest asset for one is his family and there's nothing more divine than being with your loved ones and standing by them at the times of need.If there's something that can make you feel complete,it is your family,your 'kingdom of heaven' like the one Jacob possess.
The storyline might seem too simple and even predictable,but the presentation by Vineeth is top-notch that there aren't any notable negatives to point out in its 145 minutes of running time leaving aside some minor lags in the latter part of the first half that faded away by the onset of the second half.Notably,there was a consistency in the narration by Vineeth that was well-maintained till the end of the movie.
Casting is a major highlight of the movie and credit must be given to Vineeth and the casting team for the fact all that we could see in the movie was Jacob,his family and companions rather than any actor as such.
Nivin Pauly did his part really well and stamped his ability on choosing brilliant scripts of late.This one is undoubtedly the best film from the heavily successful combo of Vineeth and Nivin that have earlier produced box office superhits like Thattathin Marayathu and Oru Vadakkan Selfie.Renji Panicker was the most impressive among the lot and lived as the title character Jacob,his career best portrayal till date.
T.G.Ravi was brilliant in his supporting role and made the eyes wet with his touching dialogs.Stacen,Sreenath Bhasi and Aima Sebastian were lovable.Lakshmy Ramakrishnan was a delight to watch and excelled with her dialogue delivery.Reba Monica John as the love interest of Nivin was adequate.Ashwin Kumar,Dinesh Prabhakar,Sai Kumar etc too gave notable performances.Aju Vargheese and Vineeth made their cameos memorable.
Jomon.T.John was as usual brilliant with his amazing camera work that captured the beauty and essence of the city of endless possibilities,Dubai.Editing by Ranjan Abraham was fine.Songs by Shaan Rahman were complimenting the storyline and the songs along with apt background score added to the beauty of the narration.
Overall,Jacobinte Swargarajyam is a brilliantly narrated feel good movie that deserves a watch with your family from the big screens.
