Driver Jamuna movie review: Aishwarya Rajesh’s is lackluster but captivating with a few logical loopholes
Aishwarya Rajesh starrer Driver Jamuna was released today after a lot of delays. The movie is about Jamuna (Aishwarya Rajesh) who decides to become a taxi driver after her father passed away. She takes on her father’s job to become a taxi driver despite facing a lot of criticism and opposition from her aunt, who feels cab driving is a job more suitable for men. One day, Jamuna gets a ride to drop off three passengers and later she founds out they are contact killers who are heading out to kill a local minister. Will Jamuna be able to avert their mission and herself? This is the whole plot of the movie.
Now to dive into the details, Aishwarya nails the role of Jamuna and the start of the movie is also good. It sets the pace and we get to know Jamuna’s world and her trouble and see where she is coming from. Director Kinslin’s vision is also great it teases the viewers with obvious predictability and sudden twists. The more accurate analogy would be you are about to say ‘I told you so’ many times just for a sudden twist to come last minute.
However, this also brings on a few logical loopholes in the movie which if you have to think about it with a calm head makes no sense. Let’s take one scene, for example, three killers are on the loose, police are searching for them at every checkpoint and Jamuna tries to give hint to the police officer but he can’t notice anything. Similarly, there are several points where the story is rushed just to keep the last 10 minutes interesting. Holding the viewers captivated with logical loopholes just to deliver at the last 10 minutes might not be appealing to everybody.
Other than that, the performance of the supporting cast doesn’t contribute more to the movie. Besides that, the action sequences shot inside the car are great and well-choreographed.
