Jaya Jaya Jaya Jaya Hey (2022) dives into the pressing issue of women’s rights within marriage, a bold topic in a society still grappling with patriarchal norms. What sets this film apart is its approach, threading the needle between advocacy and entertainment without tipping into the realm of preachiness—a common pitfall for films of this genre. Through a blend of humour and wit, it tackles a serious subject, making the message digestible and engaging for a wide audience. The chemistry between Darshana Rajendran and Basil Joseph is electric, turning what could have been a heavy watch into a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The film’s audacious climax left me impressed, earning it a “Ripe” rating on the Mangoidiots scale and Darshana was brilliant.

The story centres on Jaya, a bright young woman with dreams of pursuing a professional degree, who is sidetracked by her traditional family into an arranged marriage with Rajesh, a man less educated and with little respect for women. When Rajesh’s behaviour escalates to physical abuse, Jaya’s response is neither typical nor expected, leading to a unique and compelling narrative twist that leaves Rajesh confronting his faults in a way that shatters his male ego. Director Vipin Das‘s light-handed approach imbues the screenplay with a certain vivacity that elevates the film beyond a mere family drama. Jaya Jaya Jaya Jaya Hey is a standout film, offering a potent mix of laughter, drama, and a strong social message, making it a must-watch for fans of meaningful cinema.
