Jil Jung Juk by director Deeraj Vaidy is a brave attempt in Tamil cinema which doesn't have any commercial compromises and tries the new genre called dark comedy.

Siddharth has produced the movie who deserves accolades for doing so. But, at the same time, we just can't whole heartedly recommend the movie to everyone because it may appeal to a group of audience but misses its mark to reach everyone as a whole.
- ► Siddharth easily handles the lead with a unique performance
- ► Supporting cast including his friends, the villains have done their part
- ► Music by Vishal Chandrasekhar
- ► Whatsapp styled jokes and colorful presentation
- ► Dialogs are not so convincing
- ► Adult jokes are good but gets repetitive at times
- ► Film feels long in the second half
The story is about three friends Jil Jung Juk who are supposed to deliver a pink colored car which is actually made using cocaine as paint but they end up blowing it. Now, the only solution is to link the boss with his enemy so that they could escape the situation. It's set in 2020 where things have changed and economy is so bad.The Cast
Siddharth easily plays the role and looks convincing in the role. The roles done by his friends are mediocre while veteran actor like Radha Ravi easily steals the show. In terms of performance, they have very little to do because the story is all about the world they have created and the dark comedy that is not easy to comprehend instantly.The Team
Director Deeraj Vaidy is good with his idea and has executed it to good levels. Music and editing is equally good. But, the movie may not appeal to majority of the audience and the overall style makes you feel like watching a stage performance than an actual movie. It is inspired by Hollywood flicks and unique yet fails to impress.
Bottom line - If you loved films like Mumbai Express or Moodar Koodam, this is your cup of tea!
