Four years after the release of campus movie Queen, director Dijo Jose Antony is back with another film titled Jana Gana Mana.
Unlike his first movie, Dijo’s second directorial is set on a wider canvas with established actors like Prithviraj, Suraj Venjaramoodu and Mamta Mohandas in the lead roles
Director Dijo Jos Antony had earlier claimed that Jana Gana Mana does not project a political stance
However, the Prithviraj starrer reminds viewers of some tragic incidents that had major political repercussions.
In Movie, Prithviraj plays an advocate and gives viewers some goosebump moments by asking relevant questions about the deep-rooted casteism and racism prevailing in the country.
Other than that, the movie follows an outdated and exhausting narrative style that stretches for three hours.
Coming to the performances, Prithviraj steals the show with his powerful performance as an advocate who asks hard-hitting questions.
Suraj Venjaramoodu, as a police officer of many shades, also puts up a convincing performance.
There are many characters that come and go in the movie, but none of them are memorable. Mamta also doesn’t get much scope to perform.
