Inside
Story
Rajakannu
(Manikandan)
and
Sengani
(Lijomol
Jose),
a
young
couple
from
a
tribal
community
who
lead
a
happy
and
content
life
even
in
poverty.
However,
things
change
when
the
police
arrest
Rajakannu
and
a
few
others
suspecting
his
involvement
in
a
robbery
case,
and
brutally
torture
them.
Later,
the
cops
inform
that
the
suspects
escaped
from
their
custody
and
their
whereabouts
are
unknown.
The
helpless
Sengani,
who
is
pregnant
with
their
second
child,
seeks
the
help
of
a
righteous
lawyer
named
Adv.
Chandru
(Suriya),
to
unravel
the
mystery
behind
her
husband
and
others’
missing.
Script
&
Making
TJ
Gnanavel,
the
writer-director
has
crafted
a
solid
film
that
throws
light
on
the
lives
of
the
underprivileged
in
our
society.
The
biggest
plus
point
of

Jai
Bhim
is
that
it
hardly
relies
on
melodrama
to
convey
how
important
its
message
is.
The
Suriya
starrer
puts
forward
its
hard-hitting
theme
through
some
well-written
and
directed
scenes,
that
leaves
a
great
impact.
Jai
Bhim
narrates
how
the
system
and
judiciary
of
our
country
serve
each
of
its
citizens
differently,
without
getting
preachy.
The
Suriya
starrer
is
arguably
the
much-needed
attempt
in
the
Tamil
film
industry,
that
has
always
celebrated
the
toxic
sides
of
the
police
force
and
violence.
The
movie
also
has
its
own
light
moments,
that
are
shot
wonderfully.
However,

Jai
Bhim
is
definitely
not
a
flawless
film.
The
violence
in
the
film

which
is
necessary
for
the
initial
story
build-up
and
to
convey
the
brutality
faced
by
the
protagonist-
becomes
excessive
and
unbearable
after
a
point.
The
courtroom
scenes
remind
certain
similar
sequences
from
some
of
the
earlier
films,
at
places.
Also,
the
duration
of
the
movie
might
not
appeal
to
the
audiences
who
expect
a
crisp
watch. Exclusive:

Says
Jyotika’s
Performance
In
Ponmagal
Vandhal
Gave
Him
Hope
And
Belief
For
Jai
Bhim!
Performances
Suriya,
who
plays
Chandru,
scores
with
an
intense,
honest
performance
in

Jai
Bhim.
A
special
kudos
for
the
actor
for
coming
out
of
Tamil
cinema’s
most
overused
trope

the
saviour
hero,
and
his
willingness
to
let
his
co-stars
take
the
limelight.
Prakash
Raj,
the
senior
actor
makes
a
mark
with
his
powerful
performance
as
the
senior
cop.
However,
it
is
Lijomol
Jose
and
Manikandan,
who
play
Sengani
and
Rajakannu,
who
steal
the
show
in

Jai
Bhim
with
their
brilliant
performances.
The
amazing
chemistry
between
the
actors
makes
their
combination
scenes
both
endearing
and
deeply
moving.
The
rest
of
the
star
cast,
including
Rajisha
Vijayan
and
Rao
Ramesh,
are
good
in
their
respective
roles.
Technical
Aspects
SR
Kathir,
the
director
of
photography
has
done
an
amazing
job
with
the
visuals
of
the
movie.
However,
the
editing
of
Philomin
Raj
is
not
up
to
the
mark,
as
the
movie
becomes
a
tiring
watch
after
a
point
due
to
its
excessive
duration.
Sean
Roldan
scores
with
a
decent
background
score,
but
the
songs
are
forgettable.
Verdict
Jai
Bhim
is
unarguably
one
of
the
boldest
films
produced
by
the
Tamil
film
industry
in
a
long
time.
This
Suriya
starrer
is
hard-hitting
and
powerful.
