The promos of Raj Tarun’s Kittu Unnadu Jagratha have caught on quite well all over. After a good round of promos, this hilarious entertainer is a comedy caper that sticks to the cliches of the genre. Director Vamsi Krishna, who made a decent debut with 'Dongaata', has once again chosen to do a movie in the same genre. KUJ is routine but it did offer some laughs despite the clumsy second half.

Kittu (Raj Tarun) is a happy go lucky car mechanic who falls in love with Janaki (Anu Emanuel). As Kittu faces some small time problems in his love story, he turns into a dog kidnapper and keeps earning money out of it. One fine day, Janaki comes to know about Kittu’s true colors and breaks up with him. In a turn of events, a deadly criminal called AR (Arbaaz Khan) kidnaps Janaki. At the same time, Kittu kidnaps dog of Janaki, without knowing that the puppy belongs to their family. This entire kidnap drama of Janaki and dog has many twists and turns further.

Raj Tarun is at ease in a role that suits him. He has come up with energetic performance. But his character lacks strength. The romantic part shot on Anu Emmanuel and him is very weak. Anu Emmanuel is a big minus to this movie. Prudhvi steals the show once again with his rib-tickling comedy. Probably, this is his best comedy track that has come out in the recent past. His role as a partially blind goon is quite impressive. Arbaaz Khan is pretty impressive as the main villain. He carries out his role sincerely and brings a lot of depth to the proceedings. Naga Babu, Raja Ravindra, and others have done a neat job.

The story of the movie has nothing new to offer but director succeeded in presenting it with a good screenplay by adding the concept of kidnapping dogs. Known to have been ripped off from a Korean film "How to Steal a Dog (2014)', the way story is adapted to Telugu nativity by writer Shyam is also a good job. Director is in command of things until the intermission point and from then on the film loses steam and goes off track. Kittu kidnapping the dog and heroine getting kidnapped by the villain at the same time makes it a very interesting interval block. But later on, the director couldn't surprise with any such elements.

The second half of the film is pretty weak as it seems like the director is waiting for the climax scene. Care should have been taken care on this part, which really couldn't rise above the average mark. Prithvi's comedy during the climax saves the movie up to some extent, but there are many concerns about the second half.

Music by Anup Rubens is very ordinary. He failed to come up with catchy tunes and also couldn't give a decent background score. Dialogues are good in parts. Film's cinematography is adequate. Editing is good in the first half but gets messy in the latter half. Production values of the movie are very good as the makers have spent a good amount on this limited budget movie.

On the whole, 'Kittu Unnadu Jagratha' is a fun entertainer which has some hilarious comedy during the last half an hour. All those who are willing to pass the time without stressing much for logic can give it a try.
