Jawaan Movie Review

Release Date: Friday 1st December 2017

Cast: Sai Dharam Tej, Mehreen, Prasanna, Kota Srinivasa Rao, JP, Satyam Rajesh and others


Jai (Sai Dharam Tej) is a scientist in DRDO. A foreigner offers an Indian bad guy Keshav (Prasanna) Rs 500 Cr if he can steal a new kind of missile called Octopus being developed by DRDO and bring it to his place.

Jai averts Keshav first plan successfully. So, Keshav, who is also Jai classmate in highschool, enters Jai life and threatens him in a clever way. Jai has to save his family as well as save the country now.


Of late, directors are moving towards thrillers that have an intelligent villain who keeps hero on the run to save his family/ country/ society from a dangerous situation.

Ram Charan and Aravind Swamy starrer Dhruva was such a perfect action thriller.

Director BVS Ravi  Jawaan  more or less treads the similar path of  Dhruva but this one has novel setup -- India  main defence institute DRDO, which is located in Hyderabad.

Like in  Dhruva, it is mostly face-off between hero and villain. The villain is too smart and makes hero life miserable and instils fear in him to save his family.

Like in  Spyder, there is a huge sequence, where villain (played by Prasanna) tries to kill each member of his family and hero is in far off place from them to save them.

While in  Spyder, Mahesh Babu sends milkman, vegetable vendor, and gas supplier to divert the villain mission, here Sai Dharam Tej does a similar act by making a call at phone booth.

It is not to say,  Jawaan  is exact copy of those movies. This action drama too has similar tensed moments, similar duel between hero and villain.

Here too, hero doesnt know where the villain resides and who he is, though the audience know the identity of the villain at the very beginning.

Director BVS Ravi has written a good plot to make a riveting thriller with an interesting backdrop (DRDO) which hasn't been explored much. However, his screenplay is full of p(l)otholes. Lot of things happen related to the story in the first half but none of them really thrill you.

The drama heightens only when villain enters into the house of hero. But the execution of these scenes too are bad.

While Dhruva is example of top-quality making, Jawaan is a poor version of it. On paper, the plot is interesting but the narration and execution lack intensity.

To be fair, except for the silly and cheaply shot climax sequences, second half holds the interest to some extent.

When Prasanna belittles India, Sai Dharam giving him befitting reply (a lengthy dialogue sequence) will definitely work with the audiences. Such episodes have made the second half better compared to the first half.

Cinematography and action choreography complement each other here.

However, these kind of movies require intelligent and emotional climax to leave an impression. Here, the director has faltered completely. The final sequence defies the logic and it is filmed in an ineffective way.

The film turns boring whenever heroine comes on to the screen. The heroine is too heavy in frame too. Sai Dharam Tej and Prasanna have done their best.

All in all, Jawaan mostly treads Dhruvas path but it is not that riveting. Nevertheless it has some interesting episodes in the second half. Overall, it is a fairly better movie for Sai Dharam Tej but not for audiences.
