A short film, Jetty, starring Nandita Swetha and Maanyam Krishna in the lead roles, was released on the screens. Let’s find out how the movie is.


The story takes place in AP’s coastal village, Kataripalem, where everyone depends on fishing for their livelihood. Katari Jalayya (MS Chowdary) is a famous and respected man who guides people there. However, the fishermen are continuously plundered by intermediaries and are also affected by violent cyclones. A few die and a few lose their livelihood due to these cyclones, and it is then that they are suggested to have a pier (quay) to protect their boats from sinking. Did the village get a pier? What struggles did they face during this time? What is the role of the daughter of Jalayya Meenakshi (Nandita Swetha) and Sriram (Maanyam Krishna), a teacher, in all this? The film has all the answers.

Good points :

The basic premise and plot are interesting, and the film begins with a song describing the fisherman’s life there, which was well illustrated. The atmosphere of the village, the problems of people and the internal conflicts between people were projected decently for the first half hour.

MS Chowdhary of Bheemla Nayak fame got a meaty role and performed well. The lead actor was seen throughout the film. His diction and body language were intact, and he was the film’s biggest asset. Nandita Swetha looked good and performed decently in her respective role. Maanyam Krishna, who made his debut, was good in his role.

Negative points :

The film lacks clarity as to what it is about. We are shown the problems of the fisherman and the need for a jetty to save their livelihood initially, but suddenly the focus shifts to the centuries-old customs and traditions prevalent in the village. Unfortunately, this aspect lacks conviction, so the message at the end doesn’t feel authentic.

The fisherman’s struggle to get the pier should have been highlighted more to bring depth to the film as it is the focal point of the film. The story from the fishermen’s perspective isn’t seen in the entire second half, which is disconcerting. The flashback scenes are routine again, and we can easily predict where the movie is heading.

An inane and amateurish presentation is seen in many instances of the film, further reducing the impact. The fight scenes, in particular, go overboard. The characterization of the antagonist is quite weak. Also, having an article song when the proceedings are somewhat interesting is irritating, and the creators could have completely ignored the songs here.

Technical aspects:

Background music by Karthik Kodakana is decent, and cinematographer Veeramani did justice by showcasing the coastal locations beautifully. Production values ​​are good. However, the editing team should have been more careful in cutting the long scenes.

Coming to director Subrahmanyam Pitchuka, he did a lousy job with the storytelling and should have focused more on the fishermen’s struggle to make things better. His intent was unclear, and the film went completely off the rails as it progressed. Also, there was no possibility to include the love track, and the creators should have been more careful in many aspects.


Overall, the Jetty movie is a misinterpretation of customs and traditions, and the central aspect has been hijacked. There are only a few scenes that work, but other than that the rest of the movie is very disappointing. You can skip this movie this weekend.

Rating from 2.25/5
