Jarugandi had raised a good amount of expectations much before its release during the early part of the year as the motion poster was unveiled by director AR Murugadoss and the trailer was launched by actor Suriya during late January and early February, respectively. Jas Jarugandilived up to expectations bestowed on it? Read Jarugandi review here to get the answer.
Satya, an aspiring middle class person, wishes to setup his own travel house and thus, approaches for a bank loan. It showcases the struggle and difficulty experienced by a typical middle class person to avail loan as compared to a rich elite person/businessman. He faces a series of hurdles during the course of realizing his dream-cum-profession and how he ends up untying all those complex knots forms the rest of the plot.
Jai has given his best as the lead actor showcasing the difficulties faced and the helpless situations being encountered. He has mixed his emotions quite well and toned them to perfection based on the situation and the scene prerequisite. Reba Monica John essays the role of the leading lady. She essays a character named as Keerthi and she has come up with a good performance in her debut Tamil movie. Jarugandi also features other actors like Amit Tiwari, Daniel Annie Pope and Robo Shankar etc., in important roles and they have churned out their bits of performances in a decent level complementing the story and the overall movie.
A good movie driven by an impressive serious and social message, Jarugandi shows the dark light of the society concerning the middle class citizens. Director AN Pitchumani has written and directed an intriguing movie, which navigates from one scene to the other in an interesting manner without causing any boredom.
Producers, Badri Kasturi and Nithin Satya have rendered the exact requirement of the movie without being stingy or going overboard with production costs. Cinematography by RD Rajshekhar is appealing, while editor KL Praveen is at his usual best. Bobo Shashi's background score is one good takeaway of Jarugandi.
Jarugandi is a decent watch, which sails through a brief running time of 2 hours 17 minutes without any complications.
