DJ – Duvvada Jagannadham starring Allu Arjun in lead role is one of the much awaited movie of the star till date. Actress Pooja Hegde pairs with Allu Arjun in this movie.
The plot of the movie is about Duvvada Jagannadham (Allu Arjun) a brahmin boy who belongs to a family of food caterers. He is also having another name DJ, who kills people for justice.
The picturisation of Allu Arjuns character as simple and humble Duvvada Jagannadham and justice fighting killing boy DJ, his war against the main villain is the main plot of the story.
Story of the movie lacks logic and fails to convince in many parts of the movie. For example we see the intro of the hero where a kid kills criminals for justice, which is completely taken in unsorted reasons and manner where we are failed to get convinced.
Director Harish Shankar excels in entertainment and action scenes. But, he should have taken care in writing department to get audiences root for hero.
Music by Devi Sri Prasad is good. Ayananka Bose cinematography and dialogues written by Harish Shankar is an advantage for the movie.
The second half of the film is quite weak and is lengthy too. The movie loses its pace very well during the second half and we feel director Harish failed in his writing to keep the movie engaging.
Allu Arjun and his performance needs special mention from the movie. He tried some different type character role in this movie. Actress Pooja Hegde is also star attraction for the movie and she has done her part very well.
Overall the movie DJ is one of the best in Allu Arjun’s performance and career. But weak screenplay and less engaging scenes in the movie is one drawback of the movie. Any way it is a one time watchable movie.
