Director Vamshi Krishna Akkela's Telugu movie "Jakkanna," featuring comedy actor Sunil and Mannara Chopra in the lead roles, has received mixed reviews from the audience.
"Jakkanna" is a romantic-action movie, which is high on entertainment quotient. The movie revolves around the story of a happy-go-lucky youth named Jakkanna (Sunil) who lands in a problem when he crosses the path of dreaded gangster Bairagi (Kabir Singh). How he saves himself forms the crux of the story.
The audience say "Jakkanna" has a routine story and interesting screenplay. The first half of the film has nothing to boast in terms of story, but some comedy scenes are entertaining. The movie picks up the momentum with the gang war scene before the interval. But the director has failed to maintain throughout the second half, which is full of pointless gigs and spoofs.
Actor Sunil has delivered wonderful performance in "Jakkanna." His comedy timing, action and dance are the highlights of the movie. Mannara Chopra has done justice to her role and her chemistry with Sunil is another attraction of the film. Kabir Dulhan Singh, Sapthagiri, Prudhvi, Krishna Murali Posani, Prabhas Sreenu and Sathya have also done good jobs in the film, say the viewers.

#Jakkanna is silly and has no sense. Having said that, I still say, there are few laughs. Mass comedy.
