Jawaan is a patriotic commercial entertainer with Sai Dharam Tej and Mehreen Pirzada in the lead roles and directed by BVS Ravi. The story starts off with the introduction of two kids Jai and Keshava of which Jai is a sincere and talented young kid while Keshava doesn't mind cheating to achieve what he wants.
The story then moves to the present where Jai (Sai Dharam Tej) is an educated young man who dreams of joining the prestigious DRDO organization. On the other hand, Keshava grows to be a deadly criminal who plans to rob a missile from the same organisation. While the plan of robbery is being executed Jai interrupts them in a brilliant manner. When Keshava finds out that it is his childhood friend who failed his mission, the real game begins.
Keshava meets Jai as a changed nice man and starts living in his house and close to Jai. He gets all the loopholes and details of his family and gets them in trouble in order to grab the missile. The rest of the story is about how Jai overcomes all the plans of Keshava to save his family as well as the missile.
Jawaan opened to a mixed response from the critics. Though there were enough commercial elements to attract the audience, the film failed because of an uneven screenplay and routine climax.
