Jai Lava Kusa Story : Love and attention are highly important for a child during his formative years without which there is every possibility of the child turning into a monster later, thanks to the pent-up resentment.

Jai Lava Kusa Review : Jai, Lava and Kusa (all played by Jr NTR) are triplets, all of whom are part of a drama troupe. While Lava and Kusa garner all the glory for their performances, Jai, the eldest one, is sidelined and ridiculed often as he has a stammer. When Jai's own brothers join in to poke fun at him, his love for them soon turns into hatred. Their mother dies, and a fire accident ensues later in which the three brothers are separated. Lava grows up to become a bank manager while Kusa turns out to be a crook whose intention is to settle down in the US.

A chance encounter brings Lava and Kusa together and they exchange places to escape their respective predicaments. What are the problems they are facing? And how do their problems attract the attention of Jai aka Ravan, now the dreaded don of Berhampur. Is Jai now favourably disposed to his brothers or does he have an ulterior motive? Do the brothers repent for their earlier treatment of Jai? How does the politics of Berhampur bring the three brothers together and what are the consequences?

In Jai Lava Kusa Jr NTR has played the three characters of Jai, Lava and Kusa with consummate ease. He is absolutely believable as the mild mannered Lava, the cunning Kusa and the menacing Jai. Raashi Khanna and Nivetha Thomas look beautiful on screen but expecting too much from them in a film like Jai Lava Kusa where the hero plays triple roles, is asking for too much. TV and Bollywood actor Ronit Roy makes his debut as a baddie in Tollywood and in all honesty, it's a role that could have been enacted by anyone.

The songs of Jai Lava Kusa are not exceptional but neither are they harsh on the ear. Cinematography by Chota K Naidu is adequate.

A good actor makes you overlook any shortcomings in any technical department and that's what Jr NTR does with his portrayal, especially that of Jai. Sai Kumar, who plays the henchman of Jai, puts in quite a good performance although, his characterisation could have been better. While the first half of the film is entertaining, the second half is entirely an emotional drama. The scenes in which Lava and Kusa make use of the drama episodes to try and bring about a change in Jai are laudable.

Usually, it's the climax that can make or break a film. Director Bobby has gone in for a slightly realistic conclusion and this may or may not go down well with Jr NTR fans. Ultimately, Jai Lava Kusa has everything that one expects in a star film — comedy, action, drama, romance, etc. Box-office revenues apart, Jr NTR has once again proved with this film what a fine actor he is.
