Telugu girls Anjali and Chandini Chowdhary who are known for their good looks and performances are coming to entertain movie lovers with their webseries Jhansi. The film directed by Thiru, Ganesh Kaarthic started streaming on Disney+Hotstar on October 27, 2022. Let us see what Jhansi offered to movie lovers.
The story of Jhansi is all about a young girl named Jansi who lands in problems for no fault of hers and how she overcomes forms the crux. Jhansi (Anjali) and Sankeet (Adarsh Balakrishna) lead happy life as live-in partners in Hyderabad. However suddenly Jhansi starts experiencing nightmarish dreams. To find out the reason behind her scary dreams and how these are related to Medar (Rudrapratap), Mafia don Kaleb (Raj Vijay), and his supporter Barbie (Chandini Chowdhary), enjoy Jhansi on Disney+Hotstar.
Jhansi's story penned by: Thiru has an interesting premise. He starts of the narration in an interesting manner but within no time he loses the plot and from then on everything goes for a toss. He failed with his screenplay and direction as he left many questions unanswered and even missed connecting chords with the viewers emotionally. The investigation misses the thrill factor and the way the webseries ends leaves all disappointed.
Anjali showed her talent as an actress. She performed in the role of Jhansi and brought in variations in expressions and emotions and made viewers glued to the screens. Chandini Chowdhary failed to get a meaty role. Others got limited screen presence and they tried to make their presence in their own ways. Raj Arun is loud in his own way to generate humour while Chaitanya Varma Sagiraju is just ok. Mumaith Khan makes an impact while Aadarsh Balakrishna, Aberaam Varma, Talluri Rameswari and Devi Prasad failed to do so. Samyukta Hornad did not suit her role.
Sricharan Pakala's music is good. It is in sync with the story. He added value to the narration with his background music. Arvi's cinematography is good and made an impact by using the camera angles to perfection. The editing of Antony could have been better as there are many drags that slowed the pace of the film.
Altogether, Jhansi has an interesting premise and had all the qualities to become a thriller. But Thiru failed in his execution in the ten-episode webseries after starting off a few scenes in an exciting manner, he lost steam with silly narration. The illogical scenes and silly screenplay played spoilsport. He missed everything that is required while directing the webseries. Though a couple of episodes are ok, the majority of episodes turned out to be disappointments. Considering all these elements Cinejosh goes with a 1.5 rating for Jhansi.
