Story: (According to one story line that was leaked)
Allu Arjun is a Brahmin boy living in a Brahmin colony (agraharam) and working as a cook. His profession is to cook in very big marriages and functions. In one marriage he meets Pooja Hegde and instantly falls head over heels in love with her. In the colony where he lives consists of prime land which is worth several crores of rupees upon which the villain Royyala Naidu (Rao Ramesh) casts an evil eye. He somehow wants to take over all that land.
At the same time another villain based abroad eyes that land. He sends his gang to look into somehow taking over that land. The hero learns of these devious plans of the villain and bashes up the henchmen he sends to India. Later with the intention of dealing with the big villain himself, he gives himself a complete image make-over and goes abroad. Once he learns the identity of the villain he is shocked out of his wits. Why was the hero shocked upon learning the identity of the villain? What is the connection between the hero and this villain? How does the hero deal with Royyala Naidu? These are the issues upon which the story progresses.
There is nothing novel in the story, however the director has handled it in his own unique style. He has successfully added elements that are bound to excite the audiences. The first half is full of comedy that is bound to leave the audiences in splits. It also contains the love story between the hero and the heroine. The songs are all appropriate to the scene. There are enough twists and turns in the story to keep the thrill right through. The pre-interval twist in the tale is really mind blowing and the audiences can’t wait for the second half to begin.
The second half is as gripping and interesting as the first. The measures that the hero takes to counter the villain will keep the audiences thrilled. The second half also has a lot of side-splitting comedy. The action sequences here are bound to keep the mass audiences excited. The climax scene is the highlight of the film. In totality “DJ – Duvvada Jagannadham” is bound to sweep the audiences off their feet.
Performance of the Stars:
The hero Stylish Star Allu Arjun does a brilliant job – whether it is acting, dancing or fighting. He showcases his histrionic talents as a Brahmin boy though not to the level of Natarudra NTR. Pooja Hegde looks very glamorous. Rao Ramesh was absolutely brilliant in the role of Royyala Naidu and reminded us of his deceased father who played the same role many years ago. Vennela Kishore once again proves his comic timing and talent for comedy keeping the audiences in splits every time he appears. All others in the star cast justified their inclusion.
Ayanka Bose’s cinematography, Devi Sri Prasad’s music and Chota K Naidu’s editing were superb. Dil Raju is known to provide the production values appropriate to the film and scene. He does not disappoint us on that score. Though he chose a time tested subject the director Harish Shanker succeeds in presenting it in a very novel way and also in extracting the best of his technical team and star cast.
The Final Word :
“DJ – Duvvada Jagannadham” simply rocks.
“DJ – Duvvada Jagannadham” is rated “3.75 / 5”
