The teaser for the Shiva Nirvana directorial Tuck Jagadish was released on February 23rd, a day before Nani’s birthday. Four days since the teaser went online, it already garnered more than eight million views on the video sharing platform YouTube, which is quite an impressive feat. The ninety second long teaser was hailed as a visual and audio feast, because of the way Shiva Nirvana showcased and captured the essence of village life and family values. This was combined with Thaman’s magic, the background score, a lilting folk song about family values and brotherly love.
Since the release of the teaser, netizens could not stop talking about what a great job director Shiva Nirvana did with Nani. The Natural star is teaming up with Shiva Nirvana after the romantic superhit Ninnu Kori. However, what is perhaps the most striking thing about the teaser of Tuck Jagadish is the way Nani is portrayed. Nani looks suave in all the scenes with a neatly tucked shirt and at the same time portrays a tempered aggression. The moniker Natural Star for Nani is not an empty boast, and Nani would want to prove why he is rightly called as the Natural Star with Tuck Jagadish. This is not the Nani we usually saw in his earlier movies where he looks to be at ease playing romantic roles. Nani or rather Jagadish Naidu from Tuck Jagadish, under the able direction of Shiva Nirvana would definitely change your opinion about the kinds of roles Nani could play.
Tuck Jagadish features Ritu Varma and Aishwarya Rajesh as the leading ladies while Nani would be seen as the male lead. Jagapathi Babu, Rao Ramesh, Nasser and other actors will be seen in key roles. Music sensation S.S. Thaman is composing the music while Prasad Murella is the cinematographer. Tuck Jagadish is produced by Sahu Garapati and Harish Peddi under the Shine Screens Banner. The film was slated to be released in mid 2020, but due to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions and a year long wait, it is now rescheduled to release on April 16th, 2021.
