Jackson Durai Movie review
Starcast; Sibiraj, Karunakaran, Sathyaraj, Bindu Madhavi
Horror Comedy??? OHHHH! Not again! Please!!!
Jackson Durai, a horror comedy, is about a police officer Sathya (Sibiraj) who goes on a task to find out the truth about a village, apparently, infested with ghosts. His challenge of living in a haunted mansion, the history about the house, the paranormal experiences there and how he fights the ghosts forms the basic plot of the movie.
• Convincing or not, the director has been successful in writing a horror film that explains the backstory with utmost patience.
• The performances from Karunakaran, Sibiraj and Sathyaraj (in the order we liked) are decent and we think Sibi's role should have been a little stronger. Karunakaran is probably the saving grace.
• A huge shoutout to Yuva for the brilliant cinematography. Even the low-lit, dark scenes are well-captured.
• Music by Siddharth Vipin contributes quite a lot to the film.
• A few dialogues at the perfect timing got a few laughs here and there.
• The pace of the movie, especially in the second half, will leave you impatient.
• We do NOT understand why Motta Rajendran is repeatedly given roles that seem so force-fitted. Sorry!.. He did not make us laugh this time!
• There is nothing in the screenplay that will keep us at the edge of the seat or make us scream with fear.
• We think a good concept and material for a horror entertainer was handled rather impatiently.
Except a few laughs, Jackson Durai doesn't offer anything much.
