“Poor screenplay, humorless slapstick comedy and an unengaging pace spell doom for Joru. Avoid it.”

Anu (Rashi Khanna) is a PYT returned from the US and the daughter of Vizag MLA Sadashivam (Shayaji Shinde). As routine demands of a love story, Sundeep (Sundeep Kishan) accidentally meets her and falls in love with her. And cupid always strikes in the form of a villain who attacks the heroine hereby giving opportunity to Sundeep, our hero to save her and in turn be paid in kind with her love. After love blossoms, the plot thickens (yawn!) and the story gives way the true reasons behind attacks on Anu and how Sundeep take onus of her life.
Sundeep is riding a high tide post the success of Venkatadri Express and Ra Ra Krishnayya. Giving himself an all-new commercial look, Sundeep flaunts not just his comic timing and dance moves but also his body. Raashi Khanna is one of the catches by our industry and her diary is getting filled with dates as we speak. And why not, the damsel has a screen presence and decent acting skills. Both have a good chemistry in the film.
However the film does move at a snail's speed with a rather patchy screenplay and wasted comedians. The comedy doesn't take you all the way in splits but just about enough to tickle you and then make you wonder what was so funny in the first place. Joru does hit the bullseye for Sundeep and this weekend has far too many distractions at the box office for the multiplex audience. If the third world centers are looking for an entertainer with comedy, color and skin show, then Joru is surely a paisa wasool. But otherwise, you can safely skip.
