Jai, Lava and Kusa are identical triplets whose personalities are very different from each other. Lava the innocent guy, Kusa the kind hearted cunning guy and Jai the most dangerous bad guy. The story is about how they get separated in a very small age and in what circumstances they meet and what happens after they get together.
Junior NTR teamed up with his brother Kalyan Ram for the first time. And this is the film for Ntr in Ntr Arts banner with Kalyan Ram as producer. See more »
During the scene where Kusa goes to the pub, the song "Mercy" by Badshah featuring Lauren Gottlieb is played followed by the Demonetization announcement from Narendra Modi. While the song was released in April 2017, Modi's speech directs back to November 2016. See more »
Usually, it's the climax that can make or break a film. Director Bobby has gone in for a slightly realistic conclusion and this may or may not go down well with Jr NTR fans. Ultimately, Jai Lava Kusa has everything that one expects in a star film — comedy, action, drama, romance, etc. Box-office revenues apart, Jr NTR has once again proved with this film what a fine actor he is.
Post-interval, the director has driven the story part engagingly. How Jai has developed into Raavan and his characterisation is told interestingly. As the film moves swiftly, the director suddenly slips off the track. It goes downhill from there. On the whole, "Jai Lava Kusa" has nothing much to offer beyond NTR's terrific performance as Jai. It may go down well with the fans and the festival season might help it in the collections, but as a movie it is so-so.
Jai Lava Kusa must be the most satisfying film for NTR as an actor. It gives him a lot of scope for exploit his unlimited acting skills. Plus points of the film are basic story idea and Jai character. On the flip side, a racy narration and an interesting screenplay would have made a lot of difference. We need to wait and see how movie lovers embrace the movie.
The film's core idea is quite interesting but when you exit the theatre, you leave with the feeling of the director not having exploited the central theme properly. There's so much more the film could have explored but it heavily relies on its star to keep us hooked till the end, and Jr NTR does his best but his performances needed to be backed by solid writing which was quite underwhelming.
Many times, the audience don't get what they were promised from the fancy trailers cut by the filmmakers with a single-minded effort to draw people to theaters. However, some movies do live up to the hype created by their trailers. Tollywood star Jr NTR's Jai Lava Kusa is one such film that delivers on the promises that it made through its several teasers and trailers.
