Puri Jagannadh's Jyothi Lakshmi featuring Charmi in the title role is all set to release in June. The trailer of this film has been launched on the occasion of Charmi's birthday.
Puri surprised everyone by taking up a female oriented film after delivering successful Temper with NTR. This is Puri's first ever women centric film and Charmi plays the role of a prostitute in it.
Jyothi Lakshmi seems to have a strong message with all the commercial ingredients incorporated in it. Despite some impressive dialogues the trailer lacked the punch that we expect out of a Puri's movie.
Puri is a master in creating curiosity with his trailers but Jyothi Lakshmi looks pale and dull compared to other trailers of Puri Jagan.
Puri did this movie on a tight budget without spending much on the technicians and locations. So the usual grandeur associated with Puri's movies is missing in this trailer. Music is not so impressive and so are the visuals.
With no star hero to carry off this film, we expected a trailer that either raises curiosity or to have some shock value.
Jyothi Lakshmi fails to score with the first trailer but Puri is capable enough to throw some surprises in the film like he did in Temper with the court scene.
So let's wait for the release of the film before coming to any conclusions.
