JACKPOT is one of the finest commercial bengali films ever made. It is possibly the one movie the bengali film audience had been waiting for long. Hat's off to Kaushik Ganguly for presenting a very neatly directed complete entertainer. A must watch for all bengali film lovers! Watch it to believe that a bengali movie can be truly entertaining without irritating 'masala' dialogues or stupid action sequences. The comic performances are superb. Koel plays an immensely beautiful part. Probably for the first time she has acted really well. Hiran is smart and Rahul is ecstatic. Sohini looks promising but needs to improve her dialogue delivery. Suman as the anchor looks irritating. He overacts a bit. Biswajit sir is awesome as always. Overall JACKPOT is an outcome of a superb script and fascinating music. Great job by music director Jeet Ganguly and of course by director Kaushik Ganguly!
