The person deserves to be given a Jackpot who can dare to say that he enjoyed this.
19 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

When I first heard the famous Shahrukh Khan dialogue "Picture Abhi Baaki Hai Dost", it at once reminded me the original version of this expression which was more brutal and at your face, used in director Kaizad Gustad's debut project released in 1998. The film was BOMBAY BOYS which impressed many with its novel narrative and just when everybody in the theater thought that it was over with a blank screen, there came a voice over saying "Aye Khatam Nahin Hua C@#$%#". And the dialogue became quite famous in youngsters in those days along with a fabulous song "Mumbhai" sung by Javed Jaafri.

After this moderate success, the director made BOOM in 2003 which was a big disaster but had reputed actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Jackie Shroff, Gulshan Grover, Jaaved Jaafri and glamorous girls like Padma Lakshmi, Madhu Sapre, Katrina Kaif and Zeenat Aman playing the key roles. However it is a different thing that most of these names today regret doing that film for their own obvious reasons. Post the major debacle there was news of few stalled films plus controversies at regular intervals before director Kaizad Gustad made a comeback with his JACKPOT after a gap of 10 years having Naseeruddin Shah in the key role once again as was there in his BOMBAY BOYS.

Now the reason to begin with all these forgotten references of the past is that even after a decade of amazing developments, changing mindsets and new age cinema, director Kaizad Gustad made me feel exactly the same as I had felt while watching his mindless BOOM back in 2003. And the only difference was that in BOOM I did have faces to look at sitting by my side when I couldn't understand what was happening, whereas here in JACKPOT there were only empty seats to look at feeling helpless.

The film began in a pathetic manner with a completely sick dialogue of Naseer roaming around in a weird get-up and then just after 20 minutes, I had a strong urge of asking the few people sitting in the theater that whether they could even understand any single thing in the film till now. The interval came at mere 45 minutes and by then it was pretty clear that this was nothing but a big opportunity wasted by both the director and his actor-producer in a very over-confident and irresponsible manner.

The so called thriller based on a team of con-men failed to make any sort of impact till its laughable climax and honestly after a while I was not even interested in watching Sunny Leone doing all those things she was expected to do in this senseless, unexciting and irritating venture. In short the only thing which game me some relief moments in those 100 minutes was the song "Kabhi Jo Baadal Barse" and that's it.

So in my opinion, you should clearly get the clue to stay away from this bad attempt and if any JACKPOT is there then it should be readily given to the person who can dare to say that he really enjoyed the film and liked its suspense too.
