Natural Star Nani, Shraddha Srinath's Jersey directed by Gowtham Tinnanuri is creating a sensation at the box office. Analysts predict sky is the limit with positive reviews from critics, celebrities and movie lovers alike.
Nani's natural performance, Shraddha Srinath's bold debut, Satyaraj's impressions powered Gowtham Tinnanuri's strong story, good screenplay and direction. Everyone is captivated by the way emotions are elevated with terrific expressions and powerful and thought-provoking dialogues.
However, Gowtham Tinnanuri for all his sincere efforts and research committed small blunders which turnedout to be fateful. It is known that Nani during the film promos claimed that the film gives a better experience than Mr Perfectionist Amir Khan's Lagaan which even went to Oscars.
Lagaan gave movie lovers breathtaking live match on field cricket experience with powerful expressions and emotions not only among the actors playing cricket but also the villagers , it also made viewers part of it. Gowtham Tinnanuri failed to come up with similar expressions and emotions while Nani was seen playing battle of his life entering the cricket field.
When he enters the ground carrying bat after ten years gap, he is shown playing flawless cricket which is extremely impossible even to legends like Sir Donald Bradman and Cricket God Sachin Tendulkar. Viewers would have accepted it in any ordinary film but Jersey after coming up with such powerful realistic narration, it came as a shock.
In the film Arjun on his entry into the side does not face any problems, not even in the team meetings though once, captain Nandan Reddy apologizes. Those scenes could have been elevated by deleting few scenes with the comedians.
Even much to the shock of all, Gowtham Tinnanuri showed Ranji matches played in Day Night format which never happened. Viewers didnot get the live match appeal, be it Chennai-Hyderabad, Hyderabad-Goa and even the Ranji final Hyderabad-Mumbai. All looked like local club matches. Had he taken care of it before the film release, Jersey's power would have been universal.
