Fresh -one of its kind
6 February 2019 | by jayaprakashthanoorSee all my reviews

I do rarely watch any movie except for those which are hit. I love Mohanlal and Mammootty for their powerful and versatile acting skills.

However, while watching random trailers on YouTube I came across the trailer of janaadhipan, which I found to be worth watching. i was impressed I went ahead of watching it at tanoor little pvs.

One thing I should admire is the gritty and no-nonsense style of filmmaking. Peradi with an heroic image, suitable for making the story entertaining accompanied by a fast narrative.

At first the story convinces to make us feel like an action movie, until Peradi arrives in 20 min or so . It is also hard to expect the protagonist to fulfill what we want in a mix of political and family oriented movie, but ultimately he does it with panache. Anil Nedumangad, as Monichan, exceptionally performs well in the role of the antagonist with a positive vibe.

But, what keeps the movie at bay is the heroic and charismatic appearance of the lead hero Hareesh as a the good CM cool with his powerpacked verbal gunfire, which sometimes reminds us to possibly replace suresh gopi in yester year movies . I would rate Hareesh Peradi above anyone for his better acting skill. He could superlatively perform well even in family scenes without any doubt.

Overall, I rate janaadhipan 9/10 for its excellent fresh dialogues, entertaining story, brilliant casting and appropriate title.

Don't miss this movie, if you like to refresh your mind $$$$
