This Mishmash Of Genres Results In A Wavering Outcome!
Jada is watchable at best. Imagine 3 scenarios. 1) Your nose itches and you scratch it with your fingers. 2) Your nose itches and you take your hand around your face and then scratch it. 3) You take your hand around your face and then scratch your nose though there wasn't an itch in the first place....(more)

A half baked sports drama
Kathir who has been choosing good scripts has landed in a wrong project with Jada. He has done justice to his role and performed earnesty but the script lets him down. There is no scope for him to perform even in the so-called emotional scenes. Yogi Babu's comedy tests our patience, the rest of the ...(more)

Kathir does justice to his role while Yogi Babu's one-liners do not entertain

What happened to the other bad guy? Or in broader terms, what does it say about a film, when you walk in expecting a gritty spor...(more)

A confused mess that's neither a sports-drama nor a horror flick
Kumaran mounts a revenge story on the backdrop of football, but the results are middling. Jada could have been a fine sports-drama. Or it could have been a fine revenge-drama. It's neither.(more)

An interesting first half and a confused second half make Jada a middling affair!
This film once again brings to the fore the performer in Kishore and if there is some takeaway in the film, it is his scenes that come during the flashback. Kathir has done his part well. He has been choosing his scripts properly and giving his best each and every time. You can see him raising the ...(more)
