Jay Jay is a 2003 Tamil romantic drama film directed by Saran and produced by V. Ravichandran of Aascar Films. The movie stars Madhavan in the lead role with Priyanka Kothari and Pooja Umashankar as the leading ladies. The movie revolves around the life of Jagan (Madhavan), a carefree guy who spends his days boozing and womanizing. His life takes a turn when he meets Maya (Priyanka Kothari) and falls in love with her. However, Maya has a dark past and is not keen to get involved with Jagan.
Jagan's friend Eashwar (Senthil), who is struggling with his own love story, advises Jagan to impress Maya by singing a song. Jagan, who doesn't have any singing skills, approaches the local music composer and seeks his help. The composer refuses but Jagan blackmails him and finally learns to sing.
Maya, impressed by Jagan's singing, starts to have feelings for him. But their happiness is short-lived as Maya's ex-lover comes back into her life and creates a rift between Jagan and Maya. The rest of the story follows Jagan's efforts to win Maya back and the obstacles he faces in the process.
The movie's plot is simple, but the director has executed it well. The performances by the lead actors are commendable, with Madhavan standing out with his performance as the carefree Jagan. He is effortless in his portrayal of a character who initially seems arrogant and self-centered but transforms into a loving and caring person in the course of the movie. Priyanka Kothari as Maya also delivers a convincing performance and strikes a good chemistry with Madhavan.
The movie's music, composed by Bharathwaj, is one of its highlights. The songs, especially 'Unnai Ninaithu' and 'Nee Varuvai Ena', went on to become popular hits. The background score also complements the movie's emotional scenes.
The movie's cinematography and editing are also noteworthy. The picturesque locations of Kerala, where the movie is set, have been captured well. The editing is crisp, and the movie moves at a good pace without any unnecessary scenes.
Overall, Jay Jay is a feel-good romantic movie that tickles the audience's emotions. It has some beautifully shot scenes and great music, making it a must-watch for fans of romantic movies. It may not be a revolutionary movie in terms of its plot, but it is a well-made movie that provides the audience with a good dose of entertainment.
