Movie Review: Idam Jagath

RATING: 2.75/5

OVERVIEW: Nishit(Sumanth) is a man who suffers from sleep disorders. Because of this, he becomes a reporter and starts shooting crime scenes. In this process, he misuses the footage and starts earning money. This is also the time when he falls in love with Mahati(Anju Kurian). As time passes by, Nishit shoots a murder scene and tries to make use of it for money. But to his bad luck, he gets entangled in an even bigger mess involving a big mafia set up. Rest of the story is as to how Nishit comes out of this mess and manages to become rich.

REVIEW: The concept of the film is good, applauds to Sumanth for taking this dark shaded movie, the film has a unique night set up.Night effects shown predominantly well. Sumanth is neat in his role but the love story is dull and the pace of the film is slow. No chemistry is actually worked out between the lead pair. In order to create news Sumanth commits crime with an interesting murder scene gripped the audience wherein hero stuck in the round of issues, then the interval bang.

Love track amidst the neat story destructed the proceedings. This suspense actually leads to an interesting second half while second half starts off with an gripping point, hero’s problems becomes double and heroione also indulged in the issues,this is the time where audience getting gripped. contemporary situations of entertainment and news media are showcased well.

More than any other actor, Sumanth has carried the film with his energy. He delivered a good performance. His character has so many variations as in something he will be playing negative shaded, whereas in some scenes he will be showing regret. But actor managed them all really well. Anju Kurian looked extremely beautiful in the film.

It is evident that she made a memorable debut with this film. Her chemistry with Sumanth is also eye-grabbing. Satya got a meaty role in this film and he delivered his best performance. Just like his previous movies, Shivaji Raja delivered his best. Shafi acted really well. B Priyadarshini Ram appeared to be a promising actor. Aditya Menon delivered a powerful performance which captivates the audience. Kalyan Vittapu did his best.

The production values by Jonnalagadda Padmavathi and Gangapatnam Sridhar are lavish. Considering that the movie is a small budget thriller, we can say that the production values are pretty much decent. The music by Sricharan Pakala is an asset for the film. His astounding music will definitely create a positive impact. Cinematography by Bal Reddy P is good. He produced some sleek visuals for the film. Editing by Garry Bh could have been better. Dialogues penned by Chandra Shekhar are good. The runtime is crisp.

Final Verdict of the film Idam Jagat has an interesting premise and is narrated well for the most part. Sumanth’s role with negative shades, contemporary media set up and how news is created for TRP’s look nice.
