Actor Siddharth stars in Jabardasth, which is released a year after his last movie Love Failure. He is paired with Samantha and Nithya Menon for the film that is directed and written by Nandini Reddy. It feels like it is inspired by another Hindi movie, Band Baaja Baaraat. Siddharth shows that he can carry a flick to make it engaging and entertaining to the audience.
Jabardasth is a romantic comedy that banks on Siddharth and Samantha’s performances. Reddy wrote the script with enough funny antics and one-liners. SS Thaman provides good music that complements the screenplay. The movie features funny comedy sequences, beautiful backgrounds, and lovely costumes.
As mentioned above, Jabardasth is loosely based on Band Baaja Baaraat but should not be considered as a remake. Reddy took the plot from Band Baaja Baaraat and made the story to fit the taste of Telugu viewers. The director knows her audience and works the movie with them in mind.
Sayaji Shinde plays Bihar babu. The movie starts in Bihar and builds the viewers’ interest through songs and several comedy sequences. A sentimental scene between Siddharth and Samantha takes place before a twist in the story is introduced.
Siddharth as Bairraju wants to be rich overnight but the opposite happens and goes bankrupt. He goes to Bihar to escape his creditors. But when a Bihari babu forces him to marry his sister, he goes back to Hyderabad.
He then meets Shreya (Samantha) at a wedding and learns about her plans. They establish a wedding planning firm called Shreyas Media. This business venture turns out to be a success. Shreya then falls for Bairraju but she doesn’t like his attitude. Then they part ways and start their separate companies that compete with each other. This is when Saraswati (Nithya Menon) comes into Bairraju’s life.
Jabardasth is an entertaining movie. People looking for a comedy will be satisfied with this one. It is a must see for fans of Siddharth.
