Jai, Lava, Kusa are the three brothers whose family lives performing stage plays. Lava and Kusa are given importance while Jai is mistreated due to his stammering. A fire accident separates all three.

Years later, Lava (NTR) becomes bank employee and Kusa (NTR) turns a thief. Lava and Kusa get united due to an accident. Kusa comes to help Lava with the problems at his bank with ulterior motive of stealing money from the bank but both of them are get kidnapped. The kidnapper is none other than Raavan Maharaj (NTR) aka Jai.

Raavan Maharaj builds his own rowdy empire in some part of Orissa. Why he has kidnapped them and how the three brothers become one is the rest of the story.


The USP of Jai Lava Kusa, as the title says so, is triple role of NTR. NTR does not appear as Jai, Lava and Kusa for the sake of playing three characters but the movie has solid story base for his roles.

It begins with the childhood stories of the three brothers and why and how the Jai was mistreated by their uncle during their stage plays. After establishing the childhood episodes, the movie moves to the introduction of Kusa who turns thief and his comedy acts. Then the story goes to reveal the story of Lava who is a bank employee.

The love story of Kusa and his problems at bank are handled in a clumsy way. It bores to death. Except the Tring Tring song nothing works here.

As boredom creeps in, the story heads to reveal the identity of Jai who has now become Raavan Maharaj. The interval bang sets nice mood and brings us back into the story. Post interval, the director has driven the story part so engagingly.

How Jai has developed into Raavan and his characterisation is told interestingly. As the film moves swiftly, the director suddenly slips it. It goes downhill from there.

There is one interesting element here: the three brothers have to pose as one for a particular reason. So, all three guys change their attire as well as look and pose as Jai for everyone. This should have been used effectively. A golden chance is missed by the director. The following sequences are pretty bad and unimpressive.

Though, three brothers getting separated is there from the days of Yaadon Ki Bhaarat, this film has made one guy as Raavan. This new angle has been wasted with too much emphasis on stage plays and other silly points. Moreover, other than Jais character, the two other roles do not create any interest.

The film also gives the feel of low production values as the costumes worn by the hero and heroines, the sets that are created for this are in low quality. There is no marked difference in the body of three roles of NTR that we had seen in Kamal Haasans Michael Madana Kamaraju.

Music is also not that effective. Such mass movies need more entertainment and catchy music. This is where the film lacks. Also the emotional quotient in the film towards the end is not handled well.

On the whole, Jai Lava Kusa has nothing much to offer beyond NTRs terrific performance as Jai. It may get well with the fans and the festival season might help it in the collections but as a movie it is so-so.
