Released in the year 2017, DJ or Duvvada Jagannadham is Bunny’s first movie with Harish Shankar. Featuring Pooja Hegde as the lead heroine opposite Allu Arjun, DJ also happens to be Harish Shankar’s third movie for producer Dil Raju after Ramayya Vasthavayya and Subramanyam for Sale. For Bunny, this movie released after his blockbuster hit movie, Sarrainodu and as usual the expectations were rife when the movie hit the screens. Among the rest of the cast, we have Rao Ramesh, Subbaraju, Chandramohan, Murali Sharma, Posani Krishna Murali, Tanikella Bharani, Venella Kishore, Hari Teja, and Vidhyullekha Raman playing prominent roles.
Allu Arjun’s nailed his multi-layered character
Bunny’s dual shades as Duvvada Jagannadham and Designer Jagadish are neatly designed with lots of variations. Allu Arjun excelled in the traditional brahmin attire, which is first of its kind for him in his entire career. His dialogue modulation as a typical brahmin guy brought him laurels and once again proved his versatility in acting. The other character as an undercover cop keeps the actual plot moving and Bunny excelled in both shades of the character.
Pooja Hegde’s glamour lit up the screen
Pooja Hegde’s ultra-glamorous avatar and the scenes involving her and Duvvada Jagannadham turned out really well. Harish Shankar was quite clear with what he exactly wanted from Pooja and she delivered it to perfection. The glamour she engulfed on-screen was never vulgar and at the same time reached the masses. That is where the director scored the brownie points.
Bunny’s dance set the dance floor on fire
There is no need to specifically mention Allu Arjun’s dance. All the songs were instant hits and Bunny shook the dance floor with his amazing dances, especially in the song Gadilo Badilo Madilo. He was super cool in other songs as well and Pooja Hegde supported him well in all the songs. The album is a perfect amalgamation of mass and class beats.
Subbaraju’s comedy hit the right chord
Subbaraju’s role as Royyala Avinash suffers from a histrionic personality disorder and he splits the audience with laughter, especially towards the second half. The climax scene involving him and Allu Arjun is an epic and the audience has laughed their hearts out.
Direction and music are the highlights
Harish Shankar’s energy lies in his dialogues and hero characterization. Be it Gabbar Singh, Mirapakayi, Subramanyam for Sale, Ramayya Vasthavayya or the recent Gaddalakonda Ganesh, all his movies have strong Telugu dialogues and a neatly designed hero characterization. In DJ, he used his strength to the fullest and came out with flying colours.
What’s next for Bunny, Dil Raju, and Harish Shankar
While the movie industry is in pause mode due to the current lockdown, there is exciting news from this trio with respect to their upcoming ventures. Dil Raju is geared up to bring back Pawan Kalyan with Vakeel Saab. Harish Shankar is negotiating a deal with Bunny Vasu to produce a web series and there is also an official confirmation that he will be directing Pawan Kalyan’s 28th movie. Bunny is already prepping up for his latest movie, Pushpa, which is being made in all the major languages and is directed by Sukumar.
