Tuck Jagadish movie review: Nani-starrer is an outdated Barjatya-style family drama

0


Tuck Jagadish
Director – Shiva Nirvana
To throw – Nani, Ritu Varma, Aishwarya Rajessh, Nassar, Jagapathi Babu, Naresh

Director Shiva Nirvana, known for his romantic dramas such as Ninnu Kori and Majili, is not someone you would associate with Tuck Jagadish, a very stereotypical and outdated family drama. Tuck Jagadish is more like a Sooraj Barjatya movie with a lot of emphasis on blood ties. Featured as a party artist, Tuck Jagadish is a full-fledged masala movie with all the tropes you can think of. The film, while drowned in its own mediocrity, is still somewhat engaging.

Set in the fictional village of Bhudevipuram, Tuck Jagadish is the typical story of a son of the earth who rises and fights for peace. Village chief Aadisesh Naidu (Nassar), who has only wanted peace for many years, has always been disappointed with Veerendra (Daniel Balaji), who lets his guns speak all the time. Aadisesh hopes that his eldest son Bose (Jagapathi Babu) will work towards fulfilling his dream of fostering peace, but it is the younger son Jagadish, who gives up his dream of going abroad, to work for the improvement of their village.

Tuck Jagadish is inspired by Kamal Haasan’s Thevar Magan, in which the actor plays the youngest son who takes over the village after his father. Much like in Thevar Magan, there is a lot of bloodshed in Tuck Jagadish, and it becomes unbearable after a while. But Shiva Nirvana sets up a few familiar rhythms, which end up playing in the film’s favor. The film also works to a large extent, despite the outdated story, as it allows Nani to shine against a backdrop of full-fledged rural history, which he first explores on a large scale.

The emotional family drama moments are tiring to go through, and the film is stuck in the 1980s, in terms of the story, but thankfully the action choreography and performances make up for the boring plot. Nani gets a meaty role, and he shines as Jagadish, and there’s an interesting story behind the Tuck in the title. The star appears in a hidden look throughout the film and that’s a refreshing touch in an otherwise bland film. Ritu Varma is impressive, and her scenes with Nani serve as a respite from all the violence.
