Jabardast Aashiq is the Hindi dubbed version of the 2012 Telugu release Sarocharu. The movie never got that good reviews, and perhaps, that’s why the question arises, why it was dubbed in Hindi again and released after four whole years. The movie stars Ravi Teja, popularly known as the Mass Maharaja of Telugu industry, Kajal Aggarwal, Richa Gangopadhyay, Nara Rohith and is directed by Parasuram. It mainly revolves around three characters, Karthik (Teja), Sandhya (Aggarwal) and Vasudha (Gangopadhyay).
Plot The movie begins in Italy, where Sandhya is a student. She bumps into Karthik one day, and like old cliché times, love, at first sight, happens to her. She falls for him and gets to know that, he is flying back to India, and decides to accompany him, and make him fall for her. Well, in the flight, a lot happens, and she gets to know about his past, and that is where comes Vasu.
Karthik mentions being married to Vasu, in good old days, when he used to be a football coach in Ooty. He tells her, how they were in love and got married, but then things changed, and the relationship weakened, and their marriage failed. Even after knowing about Karthik’s past, Sandhya still wants to give her love a short and decides to marry him. Amongst all these, some secrets are revealed, that change the outlook of the movie, and that is the only factor, that lets you continue with it.
Analysis This film tries to present a “perfect story” but it gets caught amongst the many subplots, and get all blotched. The climax, being pathetic, leads to the overall failure of the movie. And being in the 21st century, when even the romantic youths prefer something more subtle, this cliché story is not much of a click. As for the technical details, the dubbing is fluent; Hindi pronunciation is perfect. Vijay Chakravarthy as the cinematographer has made the shots pretty decent, though there is some lagging in the editing section.
Devi Sri Prasad’s music, is not that remarkable, though the background score is praiseworthy. And coming to the director Parasuram he has done a good job, in few places, but it is not up to the mark and is one of his weakest movies till date. Star Performances Ravi Teja gives a quiet good performance and pleases us with this different genre of acting, which means, by not being too loud and rowdy. Though he begins with throwing some punches and spicy dialogues, yet he maintains a classy appearance. While Kajal Aggarwal is okay, nothing great, with her monotonous corny role.
1. A different Ravi Teja. His trademark, hyperactive, energized self, has been a change for once, and it feels, pleasant to see him like this.
2. Being an emotional drama, with all those bitter – sweet truths of marriage and life, it can allure to family crowds.
3. Good cinematography, especially the Europe part.
What’s not there?
1. A good story line, and a perfect climax.
2. Too much emotional conflict between the characters, and very less fun and entertaining moments.
3. A lot of scenes have not been explained properly, which can lead to confusion.
Verdict: With so much family drama and very less humor, it suffocates the viewers. So, unless and until, you are an ardent fan of Ravi Teja, this movie, is just not that watchable.
