1. Cricket mania
The latest Telugu film that has been on our minds is Natural Star Nani’s Jersey. If you haven’t watched this masterpiece directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, where Nani has delivered one of his best performances so far, it’s time to watch it. Despite the hoopla around it, if you still haven’t made up your mind about watching this Telugu movie, here’s why you *must* do so at the earliest.
In our country, there’s only one religion that brings the entire nation together. And that, my friend, is cricket. Jersey, too, is a film about the life on the 22 yards of the green pitch. It doesn’t matter if you aren’t a fan of this game, watching the cricket matches in this film will feel like you’ve been connected to it all your life.
2. Heart-warming father-son relationship
Maybe it’s for the first time that we are witnessing a father-son relationship that is devoid of drama, ego and unhindered by layers of alter-personalities. A father sees himself in his son and wants him to be better than him in everything. A father wants to be the ultimate hero for his son. But who speaks about it? No one really. But Jersey‘s Arjun is an exception.
3. Friendships for reality checks
4. Interesting supporting characters
5. Realities on screen
The days of colour-pop romances and love-at-first-sights finally seem to say goodbye to the Telugu film industry. Lately, the films have been taking a deeper dive into issues and stories that are more real and relatable. Jersey does the same. From a marriage hanging on loose threads to finding oneself back, from failures to dreams that never come true, Jersey is a slice of life on screen.
6. The story of a man who almost made it
We all seem to find ourselves busy about stories of people who went from rags to riches, about the people who ‘made it big’, about the one in a hundred. But Jersey is the story of a man who almost made it, about the 99 others in the crowd of 100. It is the story that will speak to you more than any other success story can.
