Uday Kiran, who was last seen in Nuvvekaddunte Nenakkadunta, has made a grand comeback and his latest outing Jai Sriram has created headlines for several positive reasons. Although the actor has put in lot of efforts, the movie may not be able to reach your expectations and that is because of the tried and tested plot. Poor production values and slow-paced narration add to the failure of the show.
Jai Sriram is an action drama with a few other masala elements like romance and comedy. Uday Kiran's electrifying performance and a few raw and real stunts, which are well choreographed, are the main highlights in the film. Except these two aspects, all others fall flat in impressing you. The movie is more of a bundle of errors than being a good entertainer.
Director Balaji N Sai should take the whole responsibility of running a poor show. Firstly, he has chosen an age-old story. Secondly, he could have made it interesting with an innovative screenplay, but he hasn't done it. Thirdly, his narration is very dragging and at times it tests your patience. Lastly, he has wasted many talented actors by not giving them a proper screen presence.
Sriram Srinivas (Uday Kiran) is an honest police officer, who does not mind going against his higher officers' order to protect the society. But his ethics conflict with corrupt politician Chintamani, who runs an illegal organ trade racket. Will he put an end to his activities? What consequences will he face? Will he be successful in his venture? The rest of the movie will answer these question on screen.
