After successful "Rana Vikrama," Pawan Wadeyar is back with romantic-comedy movie "Jessie," which hit the screens Friday, March 25. The movie stars Dhananjay, Parul Yadav and Raghu Mukherjee. Sumalatha, Subha Belawadi, Ramakrishna, Sadhu Kokila and others play supporting characters.
So far, Pawan Wadeyar's films ("Govindaya Namaha," "Googly," and "Rana Vikrama") have been big hits at the box office. Especially, his romantic-comedy "Googly" with Yash had turned out to be a big hit at the box office. As a result, people have pinned high hopes on this Kannada flick.
"Jessie" has Anoop Seelin's music, which has won a lot of appreciation from the audience. Arul Somasundaram has handled the cinematography, while Suresh Arumugam has edited the movie.
The movie tells the story of a Christian boy played by Dhananjay falling in love with Hindu girl named Nandhini (Parul Yadav). It is an unusual story that explores the role of religions. In short, the tale is about how our feelings change when religion comes into play.
Nandhini is a doctor by profession and the most beautiful girl in Malgudi. She is being wooed by Jessie, who successfully wins her heart. The story takes a surprising twist once she falls in love with him and it becomes a different genre film in the second half. What happens next is the best part of the flick.
The movie has been appreciated for its narration. People have praised the surprising factors in the Kannada movie and have welcomed the scary love triangle. The lead stars' performance with Chikanna's hilarious acts are the other highlights of "Jessie." Find their response to the flick here:
