Manja is the conman in Melkote, who lives the happy life by conning moneylenders in his town. The story revolves around his tryst with love.

Jaggesh's directorial venture is aimed at being a comic marathon like how fans expect from him, with a peppering of a social message in the end. The film has been made with optimal production costs and one can make that out, what with some rushed shots and jagger editing. But, he does manage to keep the audience hooked with his trademark dialogues and jokes.

The film has old school narration with a mix of action, romance and comedy, and even the special cameo in the end. This also has some spoofs that are predictable, like Nithyananda for instance. The first half is entertaining, while the climax seems too rushed and force-fitted.

Jaggesh is delightfully funny. Aindrita Ray looks good and does justice to her casting. Go ahead, watch this if you have missed the vintage Jaggesh capers.
