After the moderate success of Simhadri, Duniya Vijay has made an entry with an action-comedy packed entertainer Jackson. Jackson movie was released yesterday, Jan 15 as a Sankranthi treat for his fans. Gombegala Love Story fame Pavana has paired up opposite Duniya Vijay in the movie.
The movie has garnered positive appreciation in Gandhinagara. The critics and audience who watched the movie have liked Duniya Vijay for his rocking performance in the movie. For the first time, actor Duniya Vijay has chosen to act in an interlinked triangular story which is the directorial debut of Sanath Kumar.
Jackson is a interlinked triangular story. Jackson(Duniya Vijay) is seen as usual in his tapori character, who is in love with Kumuda(Pavana) from his childhood days. Kumudha, however, detests him and takes help of her friend Annayya(Rangayana Raghu) to prevent him from following her.
Then there is a marketing executive, who is trying to juggle through a highly stressful job and a difficult boss with family responsibilities and an extremely demanding and suspicious girlfriend, who is after him to give up his drinking habit.
Last comes the story about rocket Raja and bucket Babu who have less screen space, who murder Baby's(Deepa) husband inside a bar.
How and why these characters meet is the crux of the movie. Jackson is the remake of Tamil hit movie Idharkuthane Aasaipattai Balakumara
Duniya Vijay is the main highlight of the movie, he has succeeded to shake his leg as 'Pop King Michael Jackson' for a song sequence 'Naanu Michaelu Jacksonu'. Both Pavana and Deepa are average in their performances. Rangayana Raghu-Bullet Prakash's comedy timing is appreciable.
Script and Direction:
Sanath has been OK, as Jackson is his directorial debut. The original script of the movie has been slightly altered for Kannada audience.
Music and BGM:
Arjun Janya has composed both bgm and music for the movie which has received positive responses. Yograj Bhat and Chetan's lyrics for the songs are also appreciable.
For who, have missed watching Idharkuthane Aasaipattai Balakumara in Tamil, Jackson will be a perfect entertainer.
