What is bad:
For a student backdrop movie the violence and love are both underplayed and this could be its biggest weakness in the box office. The reason for this underplay is that the central message of the movie is both conflicting and weak. Satya rebels in his college in Vizag by stating that his new found freedom in college is his way of expressing his “josh” as a student. And then after a tragic development in that college, he comes to Hyderabad joins another college and says that students should tone down their “josh” and focus on their future. I must admit that the youth of today will find this conflict too thin to understand and too irrelevant to bother. The director concentrated a trifle too much on gang wars in colleges and this is another “no-no” in today’s colleges. Students these days have too many venues of entertainment and they are too lazy to pick up a fight. Except for the climax the pace of the movie is too slow, and one really wonders whether the current generation will patiently sit through the movie.
Watch it for Naga Chaitanya’s performance. He will not disappoint you.
For a movie titled Josh, the movie lacks speed. Now how ironical is that!
