Jayadev marks the debut of minister Ghanta Srinivasa Rao’s son Ghanta Ravi. The cop drama is directed by Jayant C Paranji and has hit the screens today. Let’s see how it is.
Jayadev(Ghanta Ravi) is a sincere police officer who gets involved in a deadly murder case of a cop. Upon his investigation, he comes to know that a dreaded liquor don(Vinod Kumar) is behind all this. Rest of the story is as to how a sincere and simple sub-inspector like Jayadev tackles the mighty Don and puts him behind the bars.
Ganta Ravi Teja as Jayadev is okay. The character written for him has a lot of intensity and he failed to make it convincing and he neither performed intense nor looked. He need to develop a lot in terms of his expressions and body language to be called as a hero and an actor. Malvikaa Raj is good with her glamour quotient and her performance has nothing much to talk about. Vinodh Kumar is nice in his role. Posani Krishnamurali and Vennela Kishore tried to generate comedy and they succeeded to a bit. Siva reddy is good and Supreet is nice. All other actors performed to the extent of their roles.

Technical Aspects :
Production values of the film are just average. Music of the film is okay and so was the background score. Camera work was pretty decent and showcased the cop set-up in an interesting manner. Editing is pathetic as at least 15 minutes could have been easily chopped off. Coming to the director Jayant C Paranji, he has just sleep walked through the film and his lack of grip on the script is clearly visible in this remake.
On the whole, Jayadev is a too heavy subject for a debutante like Ghanta Ravi. He should have chosen a simple film to make his entry in Tollywood. Even though he tries hard in his role, the disappointing narration and lack of any gripping moments take this film down and makes it a strictly below average watch this weekend.
