Story : Sundeep, a youngster from Vizag, meets Anu, a NRI girl who comes to India to meet her father, and falls in love with her. Soon, he realises that Anu's life is in danger. How he sets everything right forms the rest of the story.

Movie Review : Joru is loaded with so many cliches that one can associated with a slapstick comedy that it crumbles under its own weight. Forget the 'speed', which the title of the film translates to, the film's narrative is so random and superficial that it makes you wonder why anyone, associated with the film, thought the idea was interesting enough to make a film out of it.

To give an example of how bizarre the proceedings get, there's an elaborate sequence involving Saptagiri trying to teach a bear how to sing a song from Swati Mutyam. It's supposed to be goofy and slapstick, but when you stretch a joke for too long chances are that even a toddler will figure out that it's just a guy in a costume, pretending to be a bear. And that's precisely what the major problem with the film is. It goes all haywire and in the process of creating confusion among the characters, it bores the audience to a whole new level.

The film narrates the story of Sundeep (Sundeep Kishan), who meets Anu (Raashi Khanna) while he's on his way to Hyderabad. Soon, he realises that her life is in danger and he decides to drive all the way back to Vizag to protect her. And then the major twist in the film is revealed, which leads Sundeep to hatch an elaborate plan to teach Sadhasivam (Sayaji Shinde), who happens to be Anu's father, a lesson.

The film relies majorly on the antics of Brahmanandam, who plays PK, but you can't expect one actor to salvage the film, from the brink of boredom, when nothing else works. Sundeep Kishan does everything which an intelligent youngster is expected to do in a commercial film; however, in the context of his film, it just boils down to tell Brahmanandam what to say. The three actresses are as clueless as the film itself. And Sayaji Shinde is no better.

There are moments in the film where you genuinely want to laugh, but then such moments of joy are followed by something which is either bizarre or plain stupid. At a run time of just around 140 minutes, the film makes you wonder if you have lost your sense of humour or if the joke is upon you.
