Jersey Movie Review

Release Date: Friday 19th April 2019

Cast: Nani, Shraddha Srinath, Sathya Raj, Praveen, Sampath and others


Arjun (Nani) quits cricket at the age of 26 though he scores many centuries and wins matches. He tells wife Sarah (Shraddha Srinath) that he wants to do regular job and joins as a manager in FCI. However, he loses this job on wrong charges and hes struggling to make ends meet though his wife works in a hotel.

Set in 1996, the story then narrates how Arjun, now 36 year old wants to play for Ranji matches again, to fulfil his young son wish.

Will he succeed at this age that normally is considered retirement stage in professional sports What is the real secret behind Arjun quitting from the game at 26


Very rarely we get to see movies based on cricket in Tollywood. Jersey is totally different in terms of plot, genre and narration. This is not a regular Tollywood movie.

Even though it touches on the aspects of husband wife differences, father son sentiment, this is more about making your dreams come true overcoming all obstacles.

As a journalist writes a book on Arjuns life (played by Nani), it stresses the point that its never too late to dream.

36 year old Arjun aiming to get a place in the national team is the basic point. But director Gowtam Tinnanuri has layered many elements to tell it in a compelling manner. To hold the sports drama till the end, one needs emotional pitch. This is where Gowtam has succeeded.

Why does Arjun dream to join the cricket team at the age of 36 after quitting at 26 voluntarily Because he wants to remain as a hero in sons eyes forever. This point is the core element of Jersey and this has given the required emotional touch to the sports drama.

Director Gowtam Tinnanuri has begun the movie by going back and forth from 1986 to 1996, from revealing his current life of wife and kid and his early romance with his future wife.

After establishing these, he comes to the main point, his son asking for an Indian Cricket teams Jersey and Arjun aiming for it and from here, the director narrates the story in a straight forward manner. He doesnt forcibly include any twists.

Everything happens as one can easily guess, still it is engaging enough, and it unfolds without pretence. And he brings a good twist in end that makes the film complete.

It is quite interesting from start to finish. The first half builds on characters and their problems and the second half goes on emotional pitch.

The director has also dealt the wife husbands gap in a matured way. The father son sequences are endearing. The Railway station scene is a wonderful moment.

Nanis performance is brilliant that make the movie even more engaging.

On the downside, the film runs on slow pace and has taken plenty of time to come to the main point. Also the cricket matches become repetitive after a time. The film needs trimming.

All in all, Jersey is an inspirational sports movie that tells the triumph of the common man and teaches you to never give up. Aided by natural performance of Nani and heart warming moments, Jersey is a winner. This will appeal to audiences who like classy movies.
