After his Student No 1 which marked actor Sibiraj's debut, director Selvah is back with his next --Jore. This time he brings together both Sathyaraj and Sibiraj in the movie. A typical 'masala' film, Jore with its loose screenplay and amateur twists and turns, can be rightly called as as 'bore'.
The presence of an influential politician in the village, whose daughter falls in love with the hero, who resolves to put an end to the politician's career, all remind us of earlier Tamil movies. Sathyaraj has single-handedly tried to provide sheen to the film. He along with Vadivelu provide some relief to the audience.
Playing the son of Sathyaraj, Sibiraj has tried his hand at humor this time, but in vain. Actress Gajala, who is cast as his lady love, has nothing much to do but for a couple of romantic numbers. Kotta Srinivasa Rao, who played the villain in Saamy dons the role of an influential politician, who sends a shiver down the spine of the villagers. He appears with a loud voice and needless grin all through the movie.
Interestingly, it is Sathyaraj and Vadivelu who provide relief to the audience in the movie. Thanks to his mannerisms and improvisations, Sathyaraj evokes applause whenever he comes on screen. Vadivelu, who plays Sathyaraj's servant, in an attempt to evoke laughter goes overboard at many places with his 'double meaning' dialogues. Bhanupriya, Ramana, Thambi Ramiah and Sharmili are also in the cast.
Deva's music falls flat. Indeed, director Selvah has given old wine in a new bottle. The film has an oft-repeated theme and a predictable screenplay minus novelty.
