    Will Jai be successful in his mission? Will the triplets unite? If so, how?

    Jai Lava Kusa Movie Review


    NTR's stellar performance
    Jai's screen presence
    Devi Sri Prasad's background music
    Racy screenplay
    Sufficient comedy at parts
    Right dose of emotions


    Swing Zara song
    Antagonist Characterization


    Nivetha Thomas, Raashi Khanna & Sai Kumar have rendered justice to their roles. Murali Krishna Posani tickles your funny bone at times. Both Pradeep Rawat & Ronit Roy come and go who do not stand out neither in characterization or performance.

    It's Jr. NTR all the way. His performance, body language, intensity, dialogue delivery and screen presence are unmatchable. Arguably the best performer of the present TFI generation.

    Jai Lava Kusa Movie Review

    All three characters in a single frame with similar attire and makeover should have generally created a confusion, but NTR with his subtlety and performance makes it clear as to who is who to the audience.

    Jai steals the show with his scintillating & grey shade performance, Lava scores through his innocence & Kusa walks away with equal honours on par with Jai for his energy and entertaining act. NTR scores a centum for his terrific rendition of all three characters.

    Technical Department

    Cinematography and editing are adequate while writing by both KS Ravindra and Kona Venkat are impressive. They buckle up the audience through their engaging pen work.
    KS Ravindra (Bobby), who failed miserably during his last outing has bounced back and has proved that he is quite a director who has substantial stuff in him.

    Final Verdict

    A sureshot entertainer for neutral audience and a festival for Nandamuri fans.
