Siddharth's decision of taking up this experimental flick is commendable. His expressions and body language is sure to make you laugh.

Avinash Raghudevan, who had impressed one and all in Demonte Colony, comes up with yet another praiseworthy performance.Having impressed music lovers with his 'Shoot the Kuruvi' and 'Domer-U Lord-U' music director Vishal Chandrashekhar comes up with a delightful BGM.

Overall Views: Jil Jung Juk provides a new experience for Tamil movie-goers, which makes the flick watchable. However, it could've been much better with better dialogues and a compressed run time.

JJJ is wacky, weird and outlandish. The idiosyncratic nature of the film gets to be the major advantage but it also detaches the viewer from the regular movie watching experience.

JJJ is not that usual route you take to attain entertainment. It is quite unpredictable and intimidating, but giving it a chance, it will grow on you for it could become a cult film one fine day and can give you an unsullied experience.

Verdict: Though more of Jung and a little of Jil, still a praiseworthy attempt!

The dark comedy genre is something that several directors in the new millennium have attempted in Tamil cinema, but were only able to dish out films that one can perhaps call twilight comedies. Young Dheeraj Vaidya has done a Guy Ritchie in ‘Jil Jung Juk’ presenting Tamil cinema’s first real dark comedy.

Avinash Raghudevan as Jung is another actor who uses minimal expressions to great comedic effect. An entire sequence belongs to him when he trains a rogue to pose as a Ugandan. The film is set in 2020 a very near future from now where it is highly unlikely for the world to turn into what the film depicts.

Verdict : You can have a boys day out and enjoy a whale of a time with ‘Jil Jung Juk’
