Jacobinte Swargarajyam has everything that is the hot cake of Malayalam movie industry now. Vineeth Sreenivasan, Nivin Pauly, Renji panicker, Shaan Rahman etc. the perfect mix for a perfect movie. Have these ingredients put to use in the correct proportion is the million dollar answer and the success factor of this movie. Yes would be answer. But the most surprising factor about Jacobinte Swargarajyam is that the movie is different from any other Vinneth Sreenivasan movie. Nivin Pauly after facing series of criticism for his repeated roles with the same shades has came out of it. His role in the movie is positive and would be an inspiration to many if he or she will be able to dive inside the story of this movie. He once again proved that choosing the correct role is the key to success of any actor. Praising the movie doesn’t mean that Jacobinte Swargarajyam is devoid of flaws. It has, but the mood and the message the movie gives is relevant in the current scenario and diminishes all that. Yet the biggest flaw Jacobinte Swargarajyam has is the transformation of jerry (Nivin pauly) it happened a bit fast. However these are all minor things which none will notice because of the mood of the movie.
Jacob (Renji Panicker) is an NRI settled in Dubai. He is a businessman and has a beautiful family. His wife Sherly (Lakshmi Rmakrishnan), Eldest son jerry (Nivin Pauly), Ammu (Aima Sebastian), Abin (Sreenath Bhasi) and Chris (Stacen) were living in joy and prosperity until jacob’s business went down. The family was pushed to a situation where jerry had to rise up and support the whole family. Jerry is a typical careless young lad who has been plunged to a situation that he would have never thought to be into. Jacobinte Swargarajyam is about the fights of family to overcome the situation.
The movie has all good actors, Nivin Pauly, Renji Panicker, Reba Monica John, Aima Sebastian, Stacen, Sreenath Bhasi, Sai Kumar, Lakshmi Ramakrishnan, T G Ravi, Dinesh Prabhakar etc has done their role perfectly well. Casting has been done thoughtfully and wisely.
Shaan Rahman was usual has done a pretty decent job. Voice selection of certain songs were not suitable. Apart from that BGM and songs of Jacobinte Swargarajyam is beautiful and appropriate.
Audio Section of the movie was good and has good standard. Cinematography by Jomon T John was beautiful. Vinneth Sreenivasan as a director is improving after every movies. Jacobinte Swargarajyam is an ample example for that. Editing by Ranjan Abraham was good.
Perfect for your holiday. Absolutely worth the money you spend.
