    Jootata Movie Review

    IndiaGlitz  [Friday, July 22, 2005]

    The films which are remade from the successful originals from other languages are certainly handicapped by the comparisons made with the originals. Even when faithfully adaptations are made from the original many other aspects like performances, music and technical values are compared. Kannada film "Jootaata" is a remake of Malayalam Hit "Poochekkoru Mookkuththi' directed by Priyadharshan which was also made as "Hungama' in Hindi with the same director. The Kannada remake version comes as a fifth version of the Malayalam original, as two versions of the same film have been made in Telugu. One version is the remake of the Malayalam film and one other film released recently as "Intlo Sreemathi, Veedhilo Kumaari' is a remake of the Hindi hit "Hungaama'. The film was a big flop. The Kannada film sticks on to the Malayalam film format with the film's director Shankar taking some liberties to add and subtract a few sequences here and there. But the Kannada version lacks the strengths of the original film, despite the fact that it can be enjoyed by the audience who have not seen the original or its Hindi version. 
     The script of the Malayalam film was written by a team of writers who took care to include some enjoyable and believable comedy sequences. Though the story starts of with two major characters, it takes a forward movement with a variety of characters added to the plot. All these characters knowingly or unknowingly create funny situations which evokes laughter. 
    "Jootaata" is a faithful adaptation of the Malayalam script, but it has some loop holes. The main artists of the film have not performed as well as the other character artists like Rangayana Raghu, Thulasi and Komal who have delivered some great performances. 
     Dhyan, Akash and Richa Pallod have certainly failed to deliver the goods, though they had some good sequences. They lack the essential timing which is a must for a good comical impact. It is surprising that Richa Pallod after having performed in too many films down South is yet to learn about delivering a proper expression for any given sequence. 
     The story deals with a young couple living together in a rented house posing as husband and wife. They invite risks because of their own mistakes, and create confusions even among those unconnected with them. A whole lot of comical situations will emerge out of the desperate acts of the couple who eventually become closer to each other. 
    The first half of the film looks pale in comparison with the fast paced second half mainly because the three main artists of the film have collectively shown their lack of timing. Even the Punch dialogues have not been effectively The first half of the original Malayalam film was effectively filled by the excellent timing of these artists. . 
    Dhyan enjoys good popularity in Kannada films, but he has failed to prove that he can do variety of roles. Looks as if he is only good as a lover boy. The film is saved by some excellent from talented artists like Rangayana Raghu, Thulasi, Komal, Sharan and other experienced artists. The film is a must see for the enjoyable performances of these artists. 
    The music of "Jootaata" by R.P.Patnayak is another let down. Nothing extra ordinary could be said of other technical departments.

    "Jootaata" could have been a better film, but a good opportunity of making it has been lost because of some deficiencies. However, the film provides entertainment value for the people who watch it without seeing the original or its
