Director SL Puram Jayasurya's Malayalam movie Jack and Daniel featuring Dileep and Arjun Sarja in the lead roles, has received mixed review and rating from the audience.
Jack and Daniel is an action thriller and SL Puram Jayasurya has written the story, screenplay and dialogues for the film, which has been produced by Shibu Thameens under the banner Thameens Films. The movie has received a U certificate from the censor board and its runtime is 2.35 hours.
Jack and Daniel movie story: It is about Jack (Dileep), who is a notorious burglar, who steals money from corrupt ministers, while they are making a deal with some businessmen. Police officer Daniel (Arjun Sarja) is assigned to catch Jack. How Daniel catches Jack forms the crux of the film.
Analysis: Jack and Daniel have a routine story, but its screenplay is fresh and interesting. Some romance and action scenes keep you entertained in the first half of the movie. The second half has an interesting plotline and some chase scenes keep you engaged in this portion, say the audience.
Performances: Dileep and Arjun Sarja have delivered brilliant performance and the confrontation between the two is the highlight of Jack and Daniel. Anju Kurien has done a good job and her chemistry with Dileep is one among the attractions of the film. Kurup, Asokan, Suresh Kumar and Innocent have done justice to their roles, say the audience.
Technical: Jack and Daniel have good production values and brilliantly choreographed action scenes, amazing background score and beautiful picturisation are the attractions on the technical front, add the viewers.

#JackAndDaniel First Half SL Puram Jayasuriya has made lot of progress in the making First half is filled with screen presence of Dileep as Jack and Arjun as Daniel. Anju Kurian and Dileep combo Gives A Freshness Feel . Bgm Penned By Gopi Sundar Is Also Good. #JackandDaniel Review: Overall a half baked product which failed miserably in satisfying audience. Storyline ~ Old wine in new bottle Average making Poor VFXOverall Below Average Experience.

#JackAndDaniel First Half - A decent first half with decent amount of humour. Good Performance from Dileep and Ashokan. Nothing much for Arjun till now. Frames are good and BGM is okayish. #JackAndDaniel Review - A below average second half has damaged the product. Cliche story, poor VFX works & a climax that lacks punch.After a decent first half,everything went wrong . Performances Okayaish. Weak Execution. Technical Side could have been better.

#JackAndDaniel: Average 1st haf with very less interesting scenes. Couple of scenes towards interval worked but the overall deja vu feel makes things least effective. #JackAndDaniel has its decent share of thrills here & there but with a routine plot & poor execution the film fails to get the overall impact. Dileep and Arjun does their duties fairly while the technical side is weak,especially the poor VFX part in the climax. Strictly average.

#JackDaniel Strictly an Average flick.. An above average first half With #Dileep's good performances. Small screen presence for #Arjun. Followed by an average/okay second half. Nothing is new from the team.. Stylish making is the only positive thing ✌ Rating: 2.5/5
