Jathi Ratnalu movie Download- Jathi Ratnalu loosely translates into jewels of the nation in Telugu. That descriptor is ironic. The three friends it refers to are far from it. Srikanth, Ravi and Shekhar are slackers, desperate to escape the confines of their small town, Jogipet. They long for the big city and the respect it brings – especially if you have a job that hangs an identity card around your neck. Led by Srikanth, who convinces his father to give him two months to make something of his life, the three head to Hyderabad.
But instead of landing jobs, they find themselves embroiled in a murky political controversy, which involves corrupt ministers, a cell phone with an incriminating video and bribes of hundreds of crores. They must now extricate themselves from the mess and also ensure that Srikanth’s love story with their neighbour Chitti stays on track. All of this plays out with outlandish humour that doesn’t flag despite the film’s daunting duration of 2 hours and 28 minutes.
Writer-director Anudeep K.V. stitches together a sparkling comedy that is cheerfully silly without being lazy. The chemistry between the three will remind you of the 3 Idiots and the absurd plot of Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro. The narrative veers into nonsensical but the inspired lunacy keeps it afloat – the jokes keep coming and they almost always land. So Srikanth, who pretends that he can speak fluent English, says lines like: ‘I’m also a responsible Citizen Kane of this country’ or ‘according to Indian constipation, I’m still uncriminal till proof.’ Jathi Ratnalu movie Download
There’s a hilarious thread about Ravi’s love interest – a woman he’s never met. The two have painfully banal conversations but with great passion and refuse to hang up on each other. When Chitti’s disapproving father angrily asks Srikanth if he’s ever heard of a PhD, Srikanth says, I’ve heard the letters but separately.
Into the laughs, Anudeep threads in social commentary – the film touches upon the lack of opportunity in small towns, the dazzle of the big city, which ultimately proves hollow, the venality of politicians, and their rabid, ignorant followers who will do anything to keep them in power.
