What problem does Kanchanamala’s dad have with Kapil’s dad? How will Kapil solve this issue and win Kanchanamala’s hand? That forms the rest of the story.
Intolerable second half
Production values of the film are pretty good as the visuals look colorful because of the impressive camera work. Songs by Phani are just about okay and so was the background score. Editing is a huge mess as the film can be trimmed easily for 12 minutes or so. Even though the film has been delayed it looks fresh. Lyrics are okay but the dialogues are quite impressive.
Coming to the director Vishwanath, he has selected a very outdated story and tried to add the commercial aspects to it. He starts the first half well but makes the later part a mess. He failed in narrating the basic emotions in a flow and made a Kichidi out of the proceedings boring the audience.
On the whole, Jodi is a very outdated and ordinary family drama which will end up as yet another disappointment for Aadi.
