More than 20 years ago, director Vijaya Bhaskar produced a number of popular films, including Swayamvaram, Nuvve Kavali, Nuvvu Naku Nachchav, Manmadhudu, and Malliswari. He has returned after a long absence with the film Jilebi. With Jilebi, he introduced his son Sree Kamal to Tollywood. Here is our assessment of the movie
Story: In Jilebi’s story, four college mates who live in a dorm describe how a girl affects their lives. A strange situation arises between Kamal (Sree Kamal), a college student who resides in a dorm, and GLB (G. Lakshmi Bharathi), also known as Jilebi (Shivani Rajasekhar). How he came into contact with Jilebi and the consequences faced by him, how they are connected to his friends Bujji (Sai Kumar Babloo), Bobby (Ankit Koyya), Washington (Viva Sunny), Jilebi father MLA Rudra Pratap Rana (Murli Sharma), hostel warden Dhairyam (Rajendra Prasad), Paidithalli (Bodupalli Srinu) and auto driver Nani (Chammak Chandra) should be found on screen.
Performances: Sree Kamal does a good job in emotional scenes. He does a great job in his part, but he needs to improve his acting. There is a lot of rivalry out there. Shivani Rajasekhar performs admirably in her role as usual. Even though Rajendra Prasad just had a small part in the film, it was good to see him there. In their respective parts, Sai Kumar Babloo, Ankith Koyya, Murali Sharma, Chammak Chandra, and Viva Sunny all excelled.
Vijaya Bhaskar makes a lasting impression by providing a fun first half. He made an alternative try by putting a girl in a dorm with boys. The dialogue in the movie is alright. The bulk of the plot is revealed in the second half.
The second half’s use of dark magic stands out as a standout feature. Now that Rajendra Prasad has your attention with his hilarious timing, it’s time to applaud him.
The movie’s script is alright. They gave everything they had. Mani Sharma is the composer of the music. A special note should be made to the intro song by Sree Kamal and the visuals that accompany it. The production companies behind the movie are SRK Arts and Anju Asrani Kreations. Jilebi was produced with high standards and no compromises.
Technicalities: Vijaya Bhaskar’s preparation of Jilebi’s tale is a fantastic entertainment. He made an effort to have fun with a girl at a dorm for boys. In the past, numerous films had these kinds of tales or sequences, and Vijaya Bhaskar appears to have taken inspiration from them. After a conventional beginning in which the hero is introduced with a youthful foot-tapping song and the heroine subsequently enters his dormitory, the tale quickens a little. The dialogues appear commonplace and occasionally amusing to tease viewers’ funny bones.
The thrilling second half begins with the first half’s conclusion. As Vijaya Bhaskar focused on the beginning of the first half, presenting all the characters and taking his time, the second half appears to be better organised than the second half. Even though the scenes of the warden examining the apartments in the second half were dated, they were entertaining.
Vijaya Bhaskar’s dialogues often appeared passable, but occasionally they worked their charm. The second half of Vijaya Bhaskar’s screenplay is better than the first, and the director is adequate.
A few of Mani Sharma’s songs are upbeat and young. His dance abilities were highlighted in the intro song for Sree Kamal. The song is lavishly and exotically filmed in stunning Bangkok settings. The other song, which has a humorous undertone, was recorded with Shivani and other people acting as speed bumps. The background music, by Mani Sharma, complements the narrative.
The editing by MR. Varma is adequate but could have been better because several scenes are repetitious and slow down the pace of the movie. With his cinematography, Satish Muthyala made the movie more beautiful and colourful. The banners for Vijaya Bhaskar Kraft, SRK Arts, and Anju Asrani Kreations have good production values.
Analysis: Jilebi is a wonderful entertainer all around. The narrative, which was written and directed by Vijaya Bhaskar to launch his son Sree Kamal onto the big screen. It was a good idea for Vijaya Bhaskar to cast his kid in a funny, lighthearted comedy. To keep everyone entertained, he devised an intriguing plot and added humorous sequences. The screenplay is passable, the direction is adequate, and the story turned out to be straightforward. Reworking the script and incorporating a few Genex ideas and thoughts, as well as hiring the most knowledgeable and in-demand experts in the business, would have helped the movie reach new heights. Taking all of this into account
Verdict: This movie, which is being directed by Vijay K. Bhaskar and stars Sree Kamal and Shivani Rajashekhar, promises to give its audience an exciting experience. Mark your calendars, and be ready to experience Jilebi’s tension and excitement. Jilebi is a young performer. Watch it for the buddy comedy scenes, the original idea, and the atmosphere it masterfully creates.
