Jaya Jaya Jaya Jaya Hey Movie Review : A marriage story

Review: Jayabharati (Darshana Rajendran) was brought up by her father with ambitions of being like late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. But her life turns out no different from any other middle-class girl, married off even before she completes her degree. Her groom is Rajesh (Basin Joseph), a poultry farm owner, whose mother introduces him as a very sweet boy.

One day, Rajesh slaps Jaya for making a new dish for breakfast. He eats only kadala curry and Idiyappam in the morning. Then the slapping becomes common practice for silly reasons. But when she breaks down to her parents, they tell her to ‘adjust’. She is not allowed to complete her studies, or take up a job, but is kept busy with household work and making Rajesh’s life comfortable. One day, when Rajesh slaps her, she kicks him. This embarasses him and feeling angrier, he starts learning karate to fight with his wife. And when he tries violence again, things take a serious turn. What happens after that makes the story of Jaya Jaya Jaya Jaya Hey.

Vipin Das comes up with another female-centric movie after his earlier outing Muddugauv, trying to highlight the unhappy married life of a middle-class woman, where she has to adjust and is still blamed for everything. In this movie, he highlights that today’s woman is not ready to sit quiet and take her husband’s abuse and holds up a mirror to society’s patriarchal hypocrisies.

Characters, such as the teacher played by Aju Varghese, depicts this gaslighting beautifully. He is her first crush, but he slaps her when she changes her social media profile picture without his permission. But the theme and the idea, with all good intentions, go off track, when it becomes too lengthy.

Performance-wise, Basin Joseph and Darshana have delivered wonderful characters, supported ably by side actors Sudheer Paravoor and Aju Varghese. A light-hearted movie with a serious message for the young and seniors alike.
