Johaar is about a political leader’s envision to erect his father’s statue, after his demise using the government funds, and how this decision impacts various sections of people is precisely the premise of the story.
The Cast of the Film fits the bill perfectly. While Eshwari Rao and Subhalekha Sudhakar steal the show with their stellar performances, other actors justified their roles. Chaitanya Krishna was tailor-made for the role he portrayed as a young and cunning Chief Minister. Naina Ganguly, gets a strong role, and she delivers it immaculately. Esther Anil and Ankith Koyya proved to be a perfect choice
Director Teja Marni, though a debutante has pulled off the proceedings quite professionally. he was flawless with his casting and pulled out solid performances He was very sincere to his idea and executed it perfectly. He was very impressed with his shot-making skills and screenplay. He handled the emotional scenes quite naturally.
The major advantage of the film is the concept itself. The story has hard-hitting emotions carried really well. The director’s vision of showcasing the social message was very touching. The production values of the film are top-notch and authentic locations add extra mileage. Artwork is great as well.
Usually, concept-based films lack on commercial aspects, the same happens with Johar. It lacks commercial entertainment scenes and the second half becomes predictable. The strength of the climax falters in comparison to that of the beginning.
Keeping a few flaws apart, Johar Is a thought-provoking social & political drama narrated wisely.
