Jathi Ratnalu, featuring Naveen Polishetty, Priyadarshi, Rahul Ramakrishna, and Faria Abdullah in lead roles is written and directed by Anudeep KV, who earlier directed Pitta Goda. Bankrolled by Mahanati fame Nag Ashwin under his home banner Swapna Cinema, the music and background score is composed by Radhan, and cinematography is handled by Siddam Manohar. Billed to be a comedy movie revolving around three happy-go-lucky men, the recently released theatrical trailer promises super fun. Also featuring Murali Sharma, Brahmanandam, Naresh, Brahmaji, Vennela Kishore, Tanikella Bharani, Giri Babu, Subhalekha Sudhakar, and Divya Sripada in prominent roles, let us see what Jathi Ratnalu is about.
Jathi Ratnalu has the perfect set up
Jathi Ratnalu revolves around 3 friends, Jogipet Srikanth (Naveen Polishetty), Sekhar (Priyadarshi), and Ravi (Rahul Ramakrishna) who come to Hyderabad to make a good living. Things go horribly wrong when they get trapped in an attempt to murder case of a local MLA played by Murali Sharma. What is the actual story behind the murder attempt and will these Jathi Ratnalu come to our unscathed forms the premise?
Naveen Polishetty’s trademark comedy at the display
Naveen Polishetty, who shot to fame with his YouTube videos has come a long way and created a stamp for himself in the few movies he acted so far. While he was able to impress the audience with his debut movie as a lead hero in Agent Sai Srinivas Athreya, he continues his acting prowess with Jathi Ratnalu. He delivered an impeccable performance in his comedy forte and is well supported by other Jathi Ratnalu, Priyadarshi, and Rahul Ramakrishna. Debutante Faria Abdullah strikes a chord with her debut movie and emotes well. Murali Sharma is at his usual best and so is the rest of the cast.
Anudeep makes a comeback
Director Anudeep’s debut movie Pitta Goda could not give him the much-needed hit. However, he bounced back strongly with his second movie Jathi Ratnalu. While the story is wafer-thin, the situational comedy liner that he wrote for these Jathi Ratnalu is the major takeaway. It has been a while we got to see a movie depending heavily on the satirical comedy and we get to see it in Jathi Ratnalu. Right from the start till the end, you will keep laughing seeing these Jathi Ratnalu. Radhan’s music is good, especially the chitti song. Siddam Manohar’s visuals are great. Editing is crisp and production values from Swapna Cinema meet its standards.
WATCH OR NOT
Jathi Ratnalu is an amazing display of satirical comedy that worked wonders for the movie. Naveen Polishetty yet again charms us with his witty liners and leaves the audience craving for more. Everything worked so well for the movie and it goes beyond doubt that we have a clear winner on the cards. Go for it and get thoroughly entertained.
