Jabariya Jodi Review
The Pakadwa Vivah is solemnly held by the bride's family to hold an eligible groom at the gunpoint. In 2017, the practice, which began as a counter to the demands for dowry in areas of UP and Bihar, experienced over 3400 such weddings.
The social issue first came to the attention of Bollywood when director Sushil Rajpal produced a film about the problem called Antardwand, which won the 2007 National Film Award for Best Social Issues Film. Jabriya Jodi is a classic case in which filmmakers face the 22nd catch and fail to emerge from it.
The first half of the film is spent creating the movie. The second half is wasted on the efforts to be funny, socially aware, and romance. Multiple social messages are strongly induced from "wedding approval," "daughters neglect," among others, in a script that struggles to choose whether to be gritty or use humour to balance it.
In the movie, you can Shidharat playing the role of a Bihari thug “Abhay Singh”. He has a political ambition in the movie. Parineeti Chopra “Babali” is his childhood love interest in this movie. The movie starts between the two personalities with innocent childhood romance.
Parineeti is very near to being repetitive, while the urban mannerism of Sidharth is constantly popping out. One should offer credit to the lead and support cast by excellent acting to uplift the film in areas.
In the movie, you can see that the actor’s father is doing all the wrong stuff but value his promise. It seems like 90’s movie. Sanjay Mishra is definitely a delight to the crowd. He's very remarkable playing Babli's dad, Duniyalal, on his homeland.
You can also see Aparshakti Khurana play the role of Babali’s friend. In the movie, one dialogue is repeated again and again “Jabariya Kuch Bhi Achha Nahi Hota”.
Jabariya Jodi Movie Rating: 2.5 / 5
