Rating : 3/5 Star (3 Stars)
Star Cast : Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Irrfan Khan, Shabana Azmi
Direction : Sanjay Gupta
Story Line : Aishwarya goes for the jugular in this crime thriller. Inspired by the South Korean thriller Seven Days, Jazbaa revolves around a divorced lawyer, who dotes on her pre-teen daughter. With a 100 per cent success track record, she knows how to get any criminal ‘justice’. However, her world crumbles when her daughter goes missing. The kidnapper makes it clear that he is not interested in money. Rather, he tells her that the only way she will ever see her child again is to free a felon (Chandan) who faces rape and murder charges.
What’s Good : Sanjay Gupta, known to be sounder with technique than story-telling (many of his films have been foreign inspirations), has got it right this time. Rai Gives An AMAZING Performance as does Azmi and Khan. The crime thriller also has very good screenplay & background music.
What’s Bad : As Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Irrfan Khan peddle their distinct wares, it is like watching two different films at the same time.One features an overcharged female lead who stretches every sinew, flashes bloodshot eyes, flails her arms, and raises her voice at the slightest provocation.
Our Opinion : Jazbaa is a must watch film, one of the best movie of the year. It has superior star cast too! Irrfan Khan, Aishwarya & Shabana at their best. Must Watch it.
