Jai's journey as actor has not been smooth and he has worked hard and found his way to reach where he is today. His films now have started generating curiosity and the time has come for him where people await the release of his films. The budding star is now ready with his latest movie Vadacurry.
Vadacurry was not in the limelight till adult star and Bollywood actress Sunny Leone was approached to be part of the Tamil movie. Her presence alone has given a good publicity to the movie. Adding to that online promotions and trailers-teasers along with audio have drawn people's attention.
Vadacurry is directed by Saravana Rajan and produced by Dhayanidhi Alagiri on the banner Cloud Nine Movies. It has Vivek Shiva-Mervin Solomon have jointly composed music for the movie. Venkatesh S has handled the camera with Praveen KL and NB Srikanth have taken the responsibility of editing.
Medical representative Sathish (Jai) is constantly insulted by his friends for not having a lavish mobile. His wish to own one gets a fillip when he accidentally gets an iphone. But he doesn't want to use and decided to return to the owner. Here, his friend Karikalan played by RJ Balaji intervenes and stops him from doing it.
The other side of the story shows us Sathish falling in love with Naveena (Swathi) and winning her heart, as expected. The story takes a twist soon with the iphone creating lots of trouble for the hero. Before he realises that the owner was a smuggler of medicines, Sathish gets trapped.
The challenge before Sathish is to prove who he is and ensure the safe return of of his friend Karikalan, who has been kept as hostage by the villains over the mistaken identity. What happens next should be enjoyed on-screen.
Firstly, the story line is thin and there are jerks at parts. Having said that Vadacurry is packed with comedy and thrilling moments. The engagement rate is high and keeps you entertained most of the parts.
Performance wise, watching Jai in this role is a treat. He doesn't remind you any of his performances of his earlier movies, which comes as a good change for audience. Swathi does well in her limited role and RJ Balaji is good. Venkat Prabhu's extended cameo and Sunny Leone's songs are other attractions.
The young music directors have come up with some good contemporary music. 'Uyirin Maeloru Uyirvandhu' and 'Ullankaiyil Ennaivaiththu' are hummable songs. Background score gets cent marks.
Venkatesh's camera angles are brilliant and we could hardly believe that he is a newcomer. Editing department has done its job well to give a crisp look to the movie.
Verdict: Vadacurry is a fun-filled entertainer and audience can enjoy the movie.
