There is a flaw in the plan this time – Koratala Siva tried something different. The director who is known for projecting his heroes in a mass cum class manner made a radically new attempt with Junior NTR aka Tarak. The new film Janatha Garage has ended up doing to Tarak what Srimanthudu has done to Mahesh – quality driven, subdued role that emulates depth.
There are both pros and cons when it comes to judging the director’s judgement here. There are many repairs too, what with the weak story line and the ever predictable screenplay. There is a tinge of RGV’s Sarkar too, here and there. The leading ladies seem to have been wasted away despite their great potential. Both Samantha and Nithya have nothing great to offer. The item song by Kajal Aggarwal is a deserving attraction in the film. However, repairs in the Garage pertaining to the plot and content could have been fixed better.
Tarak shows out the best despite the rest of the breakdown. His fans are likely to be disappointed though, as there will be no ‘Thoda Kottudu’ and punch dialogues. This time, NTR looks very uber and sorted. No colorful facade. Only meaningful portrayal.
The main attraction of the film is Malayalam star Mohanlal, who has been showered with a greater scope to perform. The audience will love the way he has carried forward the role.
Telugu audience can give Janatha Garage a shot solely for the performances of Lalettan and NTR. Rest all, same same.
