#Sumantha's #IdamJagath First Half Report : The concept of the film is good and has a unique night set up. Sumanth is neat in his role but the love story is bit dull. Interval point is okay and sets up for a good second half which will be a key .. Looking promising

Idam Jagat has a very interesting premise and is narrated well for the most part. Sumanth's role with negative shades and contemporary media set up and how news is created looks nice. But the disengaging love story obstructs the free flow of the film and sidetracks the film. All those who like a crime thrillers with a realistic setup can watch this film and the rest can choose something else this weekend.

Times of India Rating: 2

Give this one a chance this weekend if you want to check out Sumanth being someone other than the quintessential lover boy and for the novelty of finally having a film that does not cop out when it comes to its lead character having sketchy ethics. But give it a miss if the similarities with Dan's Nightcrawler are bound to irk you, because the film is filled with them.
