Review of the film Driver Jamuna: The slow-moving yet compelling thriller directed by Aishwarya Rajesh appears predictable but isn’t

Review of the film Driver Jamuna: In the Tamil movie, Aishwarya Rajesh plays Jamuna, a cab driver. It saves the most of the action until the final 10 minutes, which may not be to everyone’s taste in a thriller.

Since her breakthrough performance in the National Film Awards winner Kaaka Muttai, Aishwarya Rajesh has come a long way. She is now at a point in her career where she can confidently star in films that depend entirely on her. One such movie is Driver Jamuna, a clever thriller that follows a well-worn course only to trick viewers with a clever turn. The payoff in a thriller makes up for the otherwise predictable plot.

After the passing of her father, who was also a driver, Jamuna—played by Aishwarya Rajesh—decided to pursue her dream of becoming a taxi driver. Jamuna’s mother is terminally ill as a result of her father’s unexpected death. Despite strong opposition from her aunt, who thinks men are better suitable as cab drivers, Jamuna decides to take up her father’s post. Jamuna receives a long-distance transport one day to drop off three suspicious-looking people. She initially declines the ride and asks one of the passengers to revoke the reservation.

But when they ask her to join them, she agrees. It doesn’t take her long to realise that they are contract murderers on their way to murder a local pastor. Can Jamuna halt the assault and rescue herself? The main plot point of the story is this.

The kind of movie that takes a while to make sense is Driver Jamuna. It saves the majority of its shocks until the final 10 minutes, which may not be everyone’s cup of tea in a thriller. That doesn’t change the fact that the story shows some intelligence, particularly in how everything is made to appear predictable but only serves to trick the audience with a clever surprise. One of the movie’s great points is the action scenes that are filmed in the car. They represent some of the film’s great points since they are genuinely choreographed. This would have been a captivating movie if more thrills had been woven throughout the narrative.

Although Aishwarya does a wonderful job playing the lead role, the rest of the supporting cast doesn’t really add much to the performance. The first hour of the movie clearly needed more intriguing writing.

The Manjummel Boys team receives a legal notice from Ilaiyaraaja saying, “Remove the song Kanmani Anbodu Kaadhalan or…”

In February 2024, the film Manjummel Boys, starring Sreenath Bhasi and Soubin Shahir, was released. The unauthorised use of renowned Tamil music composer Ilaiyaraaja’s song, Kanmani Anbodu Kaadhalan, from the Tamil film Guna (1991) in Manjummel Boys has resulted in legal trouble for the Malayalam film, according to The Hindu.

Makers of Manjummel Boys vs. Ilaiyaraaja

The Manjummel Boys makers were accused by Ilaiyaraaja of “illegally” using Kamal Haasan’s song Kanmani Anbodu Kaadhalan in their film without getting his “consent, permission or licence,” according to the report.

According to the notice sent through Ilaiyaraaja’s attorney, he wrote the song. The notice stated that “the same or any underlying gesture cannot be a substitute for our client’s permission/licence/content for such usage,” even though the Manjummel Boys creators had acknowledged this fact in the title cards.

Select one of the two options.

Given that the musical piece had been used commercially without permission and without paying royalty or licence fees to Ilaiyaraaja, his legal team demanded that the producers of Manjummel Boys either get the composer’s consent or immediately remove the musical piece from their film in addition to making restitution for unauthorised usage.

The notice purportedly threatened to take appropriate legal action, both civil and criminal, against Shawn Antony, Babu Shahir, and Soubhin Shahir, the film’s producers, should they choose not to pursue either of the two options.

Concerning Manjummel Boys

In the survival drama Manjummel Boys, a group of eleven friends from Kerala are organising a trip to Tamil Nadu’s Kodaikanal. Their journey takes an unexpected turn when one of the friends falls into the Guna Caves, so named because of the 1991 film of the same name starring Kamal Haasan. The next scene in Manjummel Boys depicts the other friends fighting against all obstacles to save their friend.
