Driver Jamuna Movie Review

A neatly executed thriller that delivers the goods!

Story & Narration
Technical Aspects & Music

Road movies always have a certain amount of interest and excitement automatically created in them, due to the setting and the characters that they can easily bring along. And in the same way, Tamil cinema gets its next road movie after a long time, and it is Kingslin’s Driver Jamuna.

Made on a very low budget, Driver Jamuna is a thriller on the baseline, where Jamuna, after the death of her father, takes on his job of being a driver despite oppositions from home. When a drunk and wasted gang of thugs have an accident on the road, they call for a cab and Jamuna is the one who is allotted. There begins the ride where there are lots of conversations, small twists and turns throughout. The first half of Driver Jamuna, despite the setting, is unevenly paced and has a bit of ifs and sniffs. On the other hand, the second half is well made with some good stretches and a climax that elevates the entire weight of the film and provides all the answers.

Aishwarya Rajesh has done a fine job of carrying the film on her shoulders, and provides loads of vulnerability to her character. The film rests on her performance.

There is a good amount of contributions made from the villain gang, who are not as deadly as they should be, but still good. The rest of the cast are apt. Driver Jamuna is a film that is technically neat, though there are no great shakes. Ghibran’s BGM amps up the excitement at regular intervals!

Kingslin’s Vathikuchi was a far better film mainly because of the action sequences and the gripping narrative that it had, but Driver Jamuna, on a smaller scale, does have a fine amount of good sequences to gather. On the whole, the film is a neat, pocket sized thriller that will keep you mostly engaged until the end.  Driver Jamuna Movie Review by Only Kollywood
