Naseeruddin Shah and Sunny Leone New Hindi Film Jackpot Movie Review:

Kaizad Gustad who last made Katrina Kaif’s debut film Boom marks his
return to filmmaking after eons with Sachiin Joshi and Sunny Leone
starrer Jackpot. True to his filmmaking style, this time around too the
movie revolves around men, money and molls. But whether this attempts
finally helps him taste success or leaves a bad taste in mouth let’s
find out.

Story:

Based in Goa, Francis (Sachiin Joshi) is on his con job once again, this
time around to steal the jackpot prize worth 5crores from casino boat
owner Boss (Naseeruddin Shah). His partner in crime in Maya (Sunny
Leone) who helps him execute his master plan. Whether he succeeds in his
con job or not is what follows through the rest of the plot.

Artists Performance:

On the acting front, there’s more Goa in each character then there ever
would be in any Goan. The conversations are all about sudden shift to
Konkani language, lots of “what men and hey men” and tattooed actors
with funky wardrobes. Only, in this case, the funky appears very
caricaturish. Even the dread locks on Naseeruddin Shah appear extremely
forced. Sunny Leone appears to be roped in the film only to bend down
and show off her assets time and again. Gutka Baron Sachiin Joshi tries
way too hard to fit into the character but falls short and fails to
impress yet again.

Technical and Other Departments:

The only place one can see the efforts of the direction is in directing
the song shots. The romantic/dance numbers are shot slickly almost as if
they were shot specifically for promotional purposes to entice the
audience into the theaters. The tracks also do justice to the profiling
of Sunny Leone and Sachiin Joshi but when placed in the film, they only
add up the run time and break the flow of the story. The Music is Good.
Cinematography is good. Background score is avarage. The custmes od
sunny leone is Superb.Screenplay is bad.

Movie Analysis:

If there ever was an award category for the laziest story/screenplay of
the year, Kaizad Gustad’s Jackpot would be the undisputed winner of it.
The movie has a linear plot for a perfect con story but it’s the back
and forth of the narrative and the non-linear approach which makes for a
boring watch. Worse still there’s ample repetition within a mere 92
minute movie and more discussion than action.Jackpot is highly verbose. There’s a lot of jibber-jabber by each and
every character and discussions on their planning to such extent that
you tire of their schemes and scams in no time. The entire suspense
around the Jackpot money is extremely trite, insipid and goes on in
circles most of the time. The thrill and drama fizzles out even before
it gets a proper build up all courtesy the verbose element of the
script.

Final View:

Overall, Jackpot is a complete yawn-fest and sleep inducing con-film
which really tests your patience despite a short run-time. Best avoided.
