After taking a few years of sabbatical, Sumanth is back with a line of releases. It’s just a few weeks since his ‘Subrahamanyapuram’ was released and he’s back with another movie ‘Idam Jagath’. Let’s see whether this movie can bring any good fortunes for Sumanth who hasn’t scored a hit for a long time.
Nishit (Sumanth) is a man with sleep disorders who takes up a night reporter job and starts shooting crime scenes. By taking advantage of his job, Sumanth misuses the crime footages to earn easy money. This is also the time when he falls in love with Mahati (Anju Kurian). In the process, Nishit shoots a murder case and tries to make money out of it. However, his plans get backfired and he gets entangled in an even bigger mess involving a big mafia set up. Rest of the story is as to how Nishit comes out of this mess and save his life.
Sumanth, who has been portraying different roles gets another interesting role with touches of negativity and Sumanth is at his best in the role of a man who is greed for money.
The interval bang and how the TV channels manipulate news has been showcased in an interesting way.
One of the main drawbacks of the film is the love track which appears quite boring.
On the whole, ‘Idam Jagath’ engages in parts and the people who like crime thrillers can give it a watch this weekend.
