Many people in the industry raised their eyebrows when the team announced 'Jasmine.5' as it dealt with one of the most historical cases of India- the Delhi Gang Rape case. Entire nation stood up for a girl. With a same concept, director Krishna has woven the story
The story is of course the well known Delhi gang rape case. But the way it has been commercialised is commendable. The entire movie does not speak about rape case, it has love, songs, emotional scenes too! The brutality is also shown in no-harm way which deserves applause unlike movies that glamorises crime and bloodshed.
The movie is about how a fun-loving and happily-living couple meet 5 cruel rapists who attack a couple on the road and rape the girl in a bus and throw her on the road. The scenes look very natural and actress Navya has performed well in the movie.
Mohan and Navya are the happy couple who capture audience?s attention throughout the movie. Newbie Manasa too has done a good job
V Krishna definitely deserves an appreciation for his attempt. The movie is being made in almost all the languages across the nation. A play has also been staged on the same theme. But what V Krishna would have dealt more could be about how one of the accused who was a juvenile tried to escape with the loopholes in law.
The story would have been more attractive if the director had given attention about the after-happenings of the death of the rape victim. The court aspects of the case should have been more elaborate which would have made people understand the law through a movie. Not many people have tried to explain law through the movies.
Director, through Jasmin.5 could have done it which would have made the movie unique. Apart from the newbie?s actors Avinash and Girija Lokesh have done justice to their roles. The movie has once again brought out new talents in the Kannada industry. In the era of remake mantra, 'Jasmine.5' stands unique and appreciable! Efforts of making a movie about a social issue with a message to the audience, is the need of the hour and Jasmine.5 has succeeded in the same.
