The reemergence of Jeet has been with Wanted, the most stylish action flick from Tollywood till date.Thiswas a film which Jeet was banking upon to be a super hit film so that he could be right at the top with Dev.Therefore the film did become a super hit and put him at the top so any film which would be released after would have high expectations from people. Well Jeet’s latest film, Josh (directed by Ravi Kinnagi of Wanted fame) is a complete action film which does live up to it’s name with it’s action sequences, stunts, songs and locations.

The film is full of 'josh' in the real sense. There are a lot of action scenes though a couple of the sequences do seem to be ridiculous. However on the whole they look good and so does Srabanti.In fact all the films that she does are action thrillers with either Jeet or Dev opposite her and she does not need to act much as other factors anyway make the film a super hit. Therefore any film starring her becomes a super hit and so the mystery behind her success continues. Dubai has never looked so beautiful (in the ‘Morichika’ song sequence) and we refuse to believe that is Dubai.Maybe that is a part of Dubai which is far away from the city.The songs are okay.Jeet is expected will be the star of the show, but there are a couple of people who deserve mention.One is Puneet Issar who as Rudra looks a real henchman. Another advantage he has over other people he has a huge physique that people will fear him just looking at him.Haradhan Banerjee as Indra’s grandfather is excellent and we see how see how good an actor he is specially in the scenes when he is drunk at night and creates a scene.The rest of the cast does a decent job.This film might not be most like wanted,but it is immensely watchable.
