DJ - Duvvada Jagannadham Analysis

DJ - Duvvada Jagannadham Telugu Movie Review, Rating, Story

Duvvada Jagannadham has no interesting plot and Harish Shankar tried out his best to elevate the character of Allu Arjun showcasing him as a Brahmin. Except some interesting episodes, Duvvada Jagannadham looks completely predictable and outdated. The dose of Brahmin accent and the presentation of Allu Arjun irritates the audience to the core.

Some of the catchy dialogues have been repeated number of times that they make no impact on the audience. The songs too look pretty average though lavish sets have been erected for the film. The pre-climax action episode has been shot well and the climax looks ok. On the whole, Duvvada Jagannadham fails in all the available ways in emerging out as a blockbuster.


Allu Arjun who delivered some back to back blockbusters delivered out his best as Jagannadha Sastry and DJ. He excelled in the assigned role with ease. Pooja Hegde is the major highlight of the film and she has been presented in the best away that Duvvada Jagannadham will sure help her get busy. Rao Ramesh steps out with one more powerful role and he has been thoroughly impressive. Subba Raju, Murali Sharma and others have been impressive.

The story of Duvvada Jagannadham has nothing interesting to say. The screenplay looks outdated and some of the dialogues have been impressive. The cinematography and the background score are the major highlights of Duvvada Jagannadham. The songs too make no impact and the production values look decent. Harish Shankar fails in all the available ways in presenting Duvvada Jagannadham into an impressive commercial entertainer.

DJ - Duvvada Jagannadham Final Word

Allu Arjun leads the show with his recent outing Duvvada Jagannadham which is quite routine. But the entertainment and the commercial aspects drive the film to make it decent.
