Jayeshbhai Jordaar (2022)

The movie is from Yash Raj Films, but the looks and content don’t match the brand name “Yash Raj.” Even, the promotions for the movie were so dull, the lead actor talked about everything but the movie. Anyway, we shouldn’t judge the book by its cover. Yash Raj earlier too had movies like “Dum Laga Ke Haissa”. Usually small town centric offbeat social comedies are usually associated with actors like Ayushman, Bhumi, or Raj Kumar, but Raveer has joined the bandwagon this time after “Band Baja Baraat” from the same production.


In terms of acting, Ranveer has done a good job except for his Gujrati accent, which sounds more like a mimicry. The movie, based upon female infanticide, is not new in Bollywood. Thriller horror movie like “Chhori” was well appreciated by the audience, but they were released on OTT. The same goes for this movie too. Had it been released on OTT, it would have done wonders. Not all good ideas turn into good cinema, which can be made for theater, and so is the case with this debutant director, Divyang Thakkar’s Jayeshbhai Jordaar.

As said before, the biggest problem with the movie was its lackluster marketing. Even the trailer seemed to be made in haste, revealing most of the story. The audience already knew how the movie would progress till the end. Even the climax, with its over-the-top action and preachy monologue, was uncalled for. One of the major problems with the movie is its inconsistent screenplay. The movie swindles between excellent scenes and crappy ones every now and then, as if it’s being directed by two persons.

Yash Raj films are always known for its top notch music even for their small budget movies, unfortunately we can’t say the same for this movie. The music is completely lackluster.

Performance wise the movie boasts with some of the finest supporting actors in the industry, from Boman or Ratna Pathak. Despite having such powerhouse of talents, the movie lacked the finesse and charm which movies like “Bariley ki Barfi”, “Bala” or even Yash Raj’s own “Dum Laga Ke Haissa” had.

Had there been no cinema, then this SharmaJiKaLadka would have died long ago. Out of food, sex and cinema this guy would always choose Cinema even if he would die virgin due to starvation.
