Nani is one of the actors who had faced hard time last year.comedy is his strong suit and he bagged a few decent hits with comedy movies like Asta chemma and Ala modhaliandhi. With Eega success, He became the star in south india. In recent times, Nani has been struggling to bag a hit. Will Jenda pai kapiraju give relief to the actor or not, To know this Go through my analysis.
Aravind (Nani ) is a techie, who follows the moral values and rules .He always fights for a corruption free society and refuses to pay bribes in his mundane life .His girlfriend (Amala Paul) and best friend (Vennela kishore )says that it is better to swim with the tide than go against it. However, Aravind in his crusade against corruption rubs a lot of powerful people.So, He decides to expose all the mainstream corrupted people in the state.Maya kannan ( Nani) is a tamilian, thwarts Arvind endeavour. How Arvindh cope with all these troubles and Will Arvind accomplish his mission? Forms the crux of the story.
Jenda pai kapiraju was supposed to hit the screensa long back ago, Due to some various issues, it hits the screens today. Shambo shiva shambo director, Samuthirakani penned the script and directed the film himself. The first thing I realise about jenda pai kapiraju is it has the shades of chiranjeevi’s tagore, Kamal haasan’s Bharatheeyudu and Shankar’s Aparichithudu. The main concept of this movie is, Corruption is the root of all evils in society. I felt the subject is overused. It makes you feel jaded. Passable Editing. Cinematography is one of the plus points to the film. Music scored by GV Prakash is not upto the standards. Even background score didn’t synced well with the visuals. Production values are okay.
Nani has delivered finest performance as Arvindh and Maya kannan. He has succeeded in showing variation in between two roles. Amala paul did a decent job. Sharath kumar justified his role. Ragini Diwedi did a cameo role, it is okay. Supporting cast should have done much better job.
Overall, Jenda pai kapiraju has an overused subject it may not do decent business with this type content. We can call jenda pai kapiraju is an outdated film and it is the blend of Aparichithudu and Tagore. A big disappointment for nani. Better to wait for DVD.
