Jazbaa movie review: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan makes a powerful comeback with Sanjay Gupta’s action thriller!
Sanjay Gupta’s Jazbaa starring Aishwarya and Irrfan is the remake of a South Korean crime thriller titled Seven Days. So does Ash’s comeback film pack a punch? Read on to find out…
What’s it about:
Jazbaa is Sanjay Gupta’s return to his true form. A stylish gritty thriller that stays true to its genre and delivers courtesy a solid ensemble of performance heavy star cast. Before getting into the storyline of the film it is important to say that the film is the best come back vehicle Aishwarya Rai Bachchan could ask for. Not only does it do full justice to her talent, but it also shows her in a light that’s no other director has been able to capture. Despite the umpteen twists and turns, plot changes, characters and their contribution to the storyline, Jazbaa at its core is a story of a mother and daughter. Aishwarya plays AnuradhaVerma a lawyer who is caught in a cat and mouse game of tracking her daughter’s kidnapper. The dichotomy she faces is interesting. Her adversary asks her to defend the case of a criminal who is accused of rape and murder. Caught in a dilemma, she has to now surrender her values and turn a blind eye to what is right to get her daughter back. The script isn’t linear, instead it has a multidimensional facet where Anuradha is suddenly caught in the middle of a dodgy nexus that involves a powerful politician (Jackie Shroff), his son (Siddhant Kapoor) and also a mother (Shabana Azmi) who is fighting to get her justice for her daughter’s murder. Irrfan Khan plays Inspector Yohan, whose wisecracks and one liners are opposite to Anuradha’s calm demeanour. He not only plays a her sidekick but also manages to give the story a different texture. Fast paced with enough suspense to keep you engaged, Jazbaa is tight, gripping and shot in Gupta’s signature style.
