J ! J ! (Jay Jay) Tamil Movie Review

Feature Film
Nov 12, 2003 By K. T. Thomas

Madhavan has been teamed with two fresh faces Amoha and Pooja for his new film 'J! J!'. The title is formed from the first alphabets of the lead pair's name in the film, which is Jagan and Jamuna. Produced by V. Ravichandran of Oscar Films, the film is scripted and directed by Sharan.

Jagan(Madhavan) and Jamuna(Amoga) meet in a shopping mall in Chennai. They like each other and spend a day chatting in the coffee shop. Jamuna, a believer in destiny, writes down her address and telephone number on a Rs.100 note and makes the payment at the cafe declaring that if the note came back to Jagan then it means that he was destined to meet her. He tries hard to trace the note but in vain. Jamuna goes back to Kolkata. Meanwhile Pooja, who was rescued by Madhavan from some thugs, has a crush on him. Finally Jagan manages to get Jamuna address on the eve of her wedding and unites with her.

Though the movie is good in parts, Saran have clearly failed in creating the audience interest throughout the film. As always Madhavan did a good job. Among the two new heroines, it is Pooja who scores with her good performance and dances while though Amoga looks pretty, as far as performance goes, she has a long way to go. And Maddy's friends in college (Kalabhavan Mani, Damu, Giridhar) look ridiculous as students! The only saving grace in the film are the songs tuned by Bharadwaj.
