‘Jathi Ratnalu’ should have been released last year itself but had to be postponed due to the lockdown. However, it has helped the movie to promote well. The promos have created high expectations on this Naveen Polishetty starrer. The actor who featured in ‘Life is Beautiful’ along with Vijay Deverakonda made a huge impression as a versatile actor in films like ‘Agent Sai Srinivasa Athreya’ and ‘Chhichhore’ in Hindi.
Srikanth (Naveen Polishetty) owns a ladies emporium at a small town Jogipet in Warangal District. And he enjoys a crazy following among the ladies due to his impeccable skill in providing perfect matching for their attire. Sekhar(Priyadarshi) and Ravi(Rahul Ramakrishna) are other two quirky fellows in the town. All the three friends decide to end their aimless lives in Jogipet and do something respectable in Hyderabad. Accordingly, they land up in the city but their fate frames them in a murder case. What happens to them is the rest of the story.
The movie carries sound production values. Director Anudeep excelled in delivering what he desired and that is to gift a laughing riot to the audience from start to the finish. It is his second film after ‘Pittagoda’ and he came out with flying colors this time. His one-liners make audience burst into laughter more often than not. Siddam Manohar’s cinematography is fine. Radhan’s music complemented the film. In fact, the Chitti and title songs are a highlight in the movie.
Apart from the three lead actors, there are many Jathi Ratnalu in the film. However, Naveen Polishetty stands out with a hilarious performance. But, Priyadarshi and Rahul won’t fall behind. In fact, all the three are rip-roaringly hilarious through out the film. Simultaneously, the beautiful Farria Abdullah also fit into her role effortlessly. Vennela Kishore as a jail inmate adds to the fun and Brahmanandam takes the entertainment to peaks in the court scenes.
Vijay Deverakonda and Keerthy Suresh glittered in guest appearances.
