Jacobinte Swargarajyam Review – Family is our Kingdom


Jacobinte Swargarajyam, the latest release in Mollywood got released in Singapore last month. I managed to secure seats for past weekend show to watch this latest hit movie and believe me, this is one movie that should not be missed. Jacobinte Swargarajyam makes you understand the value of family and gives a good message to all.

Based on a true incident, Jacobinte Swargarajyam is the story of Jacob Zachariah and his family. The difficulties that they have to face in life, when an unexpected crisis disturbs the peaceful atmosphere of the family to a financial fall and how they overcome the troubled times and got back their kingdom. The story might have been told earlier also in different ways, but the way in which it is narrated in Jacobinte Swargarajyam and the performances by the actors, make this a real touching and different movie.

Renji Panicker plays the title role of Jacob and the first half entirely belongs to him. Nivin Pauly plays the role of Jerry, Jacob’s eldest son. Second half belongs to Nivin Pauly and Lakshmy Ramakrishnan, who plays the role of his mother. Both have put commanding performances. The other characters include Sai Kumar, Sreenath Bhasi, TG Ravi, Dinesh Prabhakar, Ashwin Kumar, Aima Sebastian, Stacen etc. and Vineeth Sreenivasan and Aju Varghese in Cameo roles. The castings are superb and apt and all have put in a great effort.

Direction of JSR is simply superb. Vineeth Sreenivasan have again proved that he is here to stay. A good thing he did was to stick to the actual plot and didn’t divert to the other factors like romance and all, which made the movie stand out. The camera work of Jomon T John, as usual is mind blowing. The music, BGM, etc are all superb and the Onam song is really outstanding.

Jacobinte Swargarajyam gives a really good message to all. Jacobinte Swargarajyam makes us understand the value of family. If we stand united as a family, nothing can bring harm to us. All the troubles that we face can be easily overcome, if we stay together as a family and work hard, with a goal in mind. Family is where our peace and happiness lies. No one in the family should be considered as a waste. Each one have their own role to fill in the family and will support each other. Family is definitely our kingdom and our strength.

All in all, Jacobinte Swargarajyam is one movie, that should not be missed and is sure to make us shred a few tears while watching, even if you are stone hearted. Thanks Vineeth Sreenivasan and friends for coming out with this superb movie. Also, salute to the real Jacob Zachariah and family and may your kingdom be like before or even better…
