The story of three men smuggling drugs.

Plot[edit]

In 2020, three young blokes Jil, Jung, and Juk, with nothing in common between them, are assigned the task of transporting an Ambassador car coated with cocaine paint by the dreaded drug lord Dheivanayagam. Along the way, they encounter Narasimhan with an almost identical car who makes small talk and tries to gel with the trio. After a night of drinking, the trio escapes the pub without his knowledge, but only later do they realize that in a drunken stupor, they have taken Narasimhan's car and not their own.

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

Siddharth took a brief hiatus from acting after finishing Enakkul Oruvan (2015), before choosing to produce and appear in his next film. He chose to collaborate with newcomer Deeraj Vaidy on a comedy film titled Jil Jung Juk and the film was reported to be in production during May 2015.[1] The film's title was taken from a dialogue spoken by Vadivelu from Kaadhalan (1994) and refers to three different types of people.[2] The film's first look was released by director Karthik Subbaraj in late October 2015.[3][4] A single called "Shoot the Kuruvi" was released and won critical acclaim, helping promote the film prior to release.[5]

Critical reception[edit]

The film opened on 12 February 2016. Sify.com stated, "The film is occasionally ‘Jil’ mostly ‘Jung’ and largely ‘Juk’", while in contrast, Indiaglitz.com rated the film 3.8/5 and wrote "a wickedly entertaining dark comedy".[6][7][8] The Hindu's Sudhir Srinivasan noted that the film was "quirky but little else" stating "it’s all rather queer, but does oddity necessarily equate to enjoyability?".[9]
