CAST & CREW
Jil Jung Juk has created quite a buzz with its capturing songs and trailers. Now let’s see how this film, which is produced by lead actor Siddharth himself, turns out to be.
Jil Jung Juk takes place in 2020. It revolves around three characters who play the titular roles. Siddharth, Avinash Raghudevan, and Sananth Reddy are given the seemingly easy responsibility of transmitting cocaine, through a pink car, to a Chinese person in Hyderabad. The trio embarks on a journey to Hyderabad while a movie unit gets possession of their car while they resort to boozing in a bar. The car is broken, and thus, the trio hatches a plan to get hold of a new car, get it painted pink, and place the cocaine in it. Here starts a comedy riot and you have got to watch it on the screen to experience it.
Siddharth has selected Jil Jung Juk as his 25th movie. And yes, he pulls off his role with ease; his expressions are enough to tickle your humor bones. Avinash Raghudevan deserves credit for his performance while Sananth Reddy has done a pretty good job. The trio manages to gain our attention even in scenes where they don’t talk. R J Balaji, though in a brief role, makes his presence felt while Nassar and Radharavi give seasoned performances.
Jil Jung Juk has a unique concept and falls under the genre of black comedy. The movie, which is directed by Deeraj Vaidy, manages to tickle your humor bones in the first half but loses its grip in the second half. If you are a fastidious critic, you tend to get bored with the gimmicks of the actors so much so that you start to wonder when will Indian cinema come out of its cocoon of relying on childlike antics. However, the distinctiveness of the movie is that there is no heroine in it.
What’s not there?
The film is a new experience for the Tamil audience, and the unit should be appreciated for that. Watch it for the outstanding music and topnotch cinematography. Also, give it a chance if you are game for the unique weirdness attached to it.
