Directed by Gowtham Tinnanuri, Jersey is a Telugu-language sports drama film that was released on April 19, 2019. This film is about a talented cricketer called Arjun. His career has not always been perfect; he had to give up cricket after not being accepted to the Indian national team. Only ten years later, when his son asks him for an expensive present, an Indian national team jersey, he returns to play at a charity match in hopes of collecting the much-needed money. Arjun plays at a very high level and, even though he does not receive the promised match fee, he remembers how much he loves cricket. He eventually realizes that, even at 36, he is still capable to pursue his long-forgotten dream. Many people are shocked by his decision but Arjun knows that playing cricket is what he wants to do.
Jersey received exceptionally positive feedback from both critics and the audience, who especially praised the cricket scenes, the music by Anirudh Ravichander, and the emotional atmosphere of the film. Choosing Nani to play the lead has also proven to be the right decision since his extraordinary performance has led to a standing ovation from the audience and admiring reviews from the critics.
Without a doubt, Jersey is a must-watch film to all the fans of cricket, Nani and good sports drama. In case you have missed it or would like to relive the film’s story once again, you will soon be able to do that on ZEE Telugu where the full movie will be available online.
