Charles Goren said you can make a slam with 33 points, and here you don't even have any jacks.  Let's see. 

Lead: J.  Plan the play.

(This is a play hand, but I'll add a bidding note for non-2/1 players.  2NT would have been forcing at South's second turn, so 3NT shows a better hand, about a strong NT.  South has a maximum for that auction, and some would choose a stronger sequence, 2NT then 4NT.)
