Jailer Movie Story:
Muthu Vale Pandian (Rajinikanth) is a retired jailer. He is spending the rest of his life with his wife Vijaya (Ramakrishna), son, daughter-in-law, and grandson. Muthu's son Arjun (Vasant Ravi) is the Assistant Commissioner of Police. He has been investigating for four and a half years to catch a gang that steals idols from ancient temples. In this order, he earns a base. Even though some warned him to drop the case, he did not drop it.
One day he disappears. The police officials also come to the conclusion that Arjun is dead. The fact that the son died makes Muthu's eyes unsightly. He takes the initiative to end the idol-stealing gang. With that, Varma (Vinayakan) starts attacking Muthu's family members to kill them all. Who is that Varma? What did Muthu do to save the family? Finally, what is the truth that Muthu learns? What did he do then? It should be seen on the silver screen. What are the roles of Mohan (Sunil) and Kamna (Tamanna) in the middle? That's interesting!
Jailer Movie Analysis:
'Jailer' engages the audience who went to the theaters till they relax. Then the real problem started. Where did the story go from? Where is the journey going? Doubts will come. Again, the film did not fall into the groove even in the key scenes.
Up to rest Rajinikanth's image and story have been handled well by director Nelson Dilip Kumar. He is a specialist in capturing dark humor. Rajani and Yogi Babu have once again shown their talent in cultivating comedy in the combination scenes. Artists are doing serious acting on screen. But, the audience in front of the screen can't stop laughing.
Rajinikanth's heroism is brilliantly portrayed by Nelson Dilip Kumar. The main credit for that should be given to music director Anirudh Ravichander BGM Jailer. His background music elevates some scenes tremendously. New music was heard. Cinematography and Sun Pictures' production values are good. There was no compromise anywhere. If Nelson Dilip Kumar had concentrated on the story after rest, the result would have been at the level of Rajinikanth's image. It didn't happen. The twists in the story are not difficult to imagine. There is nothing new in the actual story except Rajinikanth's heroism.
Jailer Movie Actors Performance:
Rajinikanth has played a role befitting his age. Acting is not new to him! There is no difference whether it is mass - class, youth - family... The audience of all sections gave a settled performance to blow whistles. His marked mannerisms are also impressive. The dining table scene, the pre-interval scene, the climax... Rajini's heroism is at its peak. Ramyakrishna is sober as his partner. Vasant Ravi impresses once again. Vinayakan's performance as the villain, and the Tamil nativity is more in Ahodyam.
Mohanlal, Shivrajkumar, Jackie Shroff... the length of three characters in the story is very short. Nelson Dilip Kumar gave them good elevations for the duration. The length of Tamannaah's role is also short. He was limited to one song, two or three scenes only. 'Nuv Kavalaiya...' song picturization is good on screen too. Popular Telugu actor Sunil appeared in a key role. The director has not used him properly. Nagababu will appear in a guest role.
Yogi Babu and VTV Ganesh's scenes in Nelson Dilip Kumar's movies are always good. The same in 'Jailor'! Rajinikanth and Yogi Babu laughed a lot. Their timing in those comedy scenes is fantastic. VTV Ganesh also laughed. A few more well-known actors will appear on the screen. However, it is difficult to register.
