Allari Naresh, Isha Chawla, Swathi Dixit, Posani, M S Narayana
It?s another comedy from from Allari Naresh. Last we saw him was in Laddu Babu. In Jump Jilani he enacts a dual role with Isha Chawla and Swathi Dixit. The film is a remake of the Tamil film Kalakalappu. E Satti Babu has directed this movie.
Sattibabu (Allari Naresh) runs a hotel in Nidadavole along with his grandfather (Kota Srinivasa Rao) and Ganga (Swathi Dixit). Though the business is bad, Sattibabu runs the show just for his grandfather. Enter a new health inspector, Madhavi (Isha Chawla) and Sattibabu falls in love. Rambabu (Allari Naresh again) who is Sattibabu?s brother is back from Jail. He joins the team and creates problems for them. Rambabu falls in love with Ganga.
Ugra Narasimha Reddy (Posani Krishna Murali) of Pulivendula is the bad guy who wants to marry Madhavi against her wishes. Sattibabu stops the wedding and gets his lady love.
There is also Rao Ramesh and his group who is searching for his diamond phone and they reach the brother. What follows then is roller coaster ride of twists and turns.
The director has taken his own sweet time to establish the story. The first half is not all that impressive. The comedy is stale. The film barely has a good storyline, which happens to be its biggest shortcoming. There is hardly any punch dialogue and the story just goes on. Some good editing would have surely helped the film.
Songs are pretty bad. Performance by Allari Naresh is good. He has portrayed both the roles in different style.
The stunner in the film is Posani Krishna Murali whom we see only in the second half. His performance is stunning. He gives us some comic relief along with M S Narayana and Tagubothu Ramesh. Isha Chawla and Swathi Dixit have added the glam touch.
Overall Jump Jilani has only Allari Naresh?s performance as its saving grace. With bad direction and unworthy storyline this movie fails to impress.
Verdict: Not Good
Time pass comedy entertainer
Average comedy entertainer
Decent rural family entertainer
Soubin Shahir and Mamta Mohandas shine in this conventional film
