What Is Good

  • Sai Dharam Tej
  • Background score
  • Cinematography
  • Mehreen's glamor
  • Screenplay
  • Plot with DRDO backdrop

What Is Bad

  • Second half
  • Unwanted song placements
Bottom Line: An powerful and interesting action thriller with intense acts by Prasanna and Sai Dharam Tej. Engaging chase games.


Despite scoring a hit with Supreme, Sai Dharam Tej couldn't quite capitalize on the success and failed big time with disastrous outings and poor choices like Thikka and winner. However, unfazed by defeats, he has confidently struck screens this week with the action-packed patriotic entertainer Jawaan. Here's team AP Herald's exclusive first on the net review of Jawaan.

Sai Dharam Tej and Prasanna are childhood friends, who get separated after they realize they have different ideologies and decide to travel in different paths. As Sai Dharam grows into a patriotic DRDO aspirant, Prasanna grows into a dangerous antisocial, who plans terrorist attacks. Situations force Sai Dharam to counter Prasanna's plans, and this makes them directly face each other as enemies. As Prasanna counters Sai and Sai retaliate with counter Action every time, it's a stunning cat and mouse game that ensues, and who ultimately wins, and whether Sai Dharam Tej was able to save the nation is what Jawaan is all about.

Star Performance

Sai Dharam Tej is one actor who has been constantly improving, and he has shown ample variety and development in his expressions, dances Energetically and gracefully, and mouths punches with ease. Prasanna is a remarkable addition to Tollywood, and is almost playing the second lead here. With his menacing looks, and cunning eyes, Prasanna makes a huge impression as the deadly antagonist. Mehreen Pirzada is the typical eye candy, and she plays a glamorous role and sets the screen on fire with her Sensuous screen presence. The rest of the cast including Sathyam Rajesh, Kota Srinivasa Rao, Subbaraju and Jayaprakash are apt.

Techinical Team

S Thaman scores high on his BGM, and of his songs, the title song, Bugganchuna and Bangaru are the picks of the lot. KV Guhan's Cinematography is top notch, and captures the high octane stunt sequences perfectly and also presents every frame of Jawaan colorfully. SR Shekar's editing could have been better, as the second half is filled with unnecessary songs. After a disastrous debut with Wanted starring Gopichand, director BVS Ravi returns 6 years later, sharpening his skills, with a hero like Sai Dharam Tej who's on the verge of losing his box office supremacy. This time around, he has cleverly chosen a plot of good vs evil against terrorism and DRDO backdrop. 


The best part of Jawaan is that it isn't a typical hero glorification movie, and gives more scope to villain Prasanna who makes the screenplay engaging with his powerful screen presence. Despite the tempo set, Ravi spoils a bit in the second half with unwarranted and wrongly placed song sequences. However, the thrilling cat and mouse chase game make Jawaan exciting despite drags. With stunning BGM by Thaman and awesome Cinematography by Guhan serving as assets and Mehreen's glam, adding more power to solid acts of Prasanna and Sai Dharam Tej, Jawaan is a comeback win for Sai Dharam Tej and BVS Ravi.
