Storyline

Jugni (Firefly) is the beat of the soul, the free-flying spirit. Jugni is Vibhavari (Vibs). Vibs is a music director, working on her first big break in the Hindi film industry. When work and home affairs, with her live-in boyfriend Sid hit a high tide, Vibs hits the road with a glint of hope; to find music. The journey takes her to a village in Punjab in the search of a Bibi Saroop, whose voice holds the promise that Vibs is searching for. But as the twist of fate would have it, Mastana, Bibi's son and a proficient singer himself, is the voice and man who winds his way into Vibs' heart. From here on, Jugni is about striking balances, making tough decisions while trying to soften the blows and dealing with the studied dramatic turns and unpredictabilities of life and finding the place which one can call home; home of the heart, where the firefly is at her brightest. Written by Kartick Sitaraman

The fire within the firefly
17 July 2016 | by Tanuj PoddarSee all my reviews

This movie is an amazing musical journey taken by the protagonist to come to terms with the fire within and then shine brighter in the world.

Sugandha plays the role of a music director who has got her first break but is unable to crack something that pleases her director. So she takes an unplanned journey to find an old forgotten folk singer to give her song an edge. Her character is sketched as a very independent and adventure seeking person, though it doesn't necessarily come out as that in the actual performance. She keeps living every moment as it comes and the way life unfolds in front of her leaves her in a perplexed situation that makes her fight the fire within herself to realize who has what role to play in her life and what she wants from her life.

In Vibs search for the folk singer, Bibi , she meets Mastana, Bibi's son. He too is trained as a singer, but has moved away from his roots to compose modern songs. Sidhant Bhel as a happy go lucky village lad, really brings a lot energy to the screen and the script. Along with Vibs, he to undergoes a roller coaster ride to understand his own self and the role of love and success in his life. He beautifully transitions between bringing comic relief to being very intense for showing his own journey.

Sadhana gives a very measured performance as a forgotten folk singer. Her character has subtle nuances which get beautifully captured in her performance. She shows some contempt for the modern songs that his son composes and his unwillingness to associate with the songs which are the roots to his culture. As an accomplished singer, she takes pride in her own artistic capabilities which is reflected in the way her character is written and in her performance.

Anurita and Samir do complete justice to their roles as supportive and jealous partners to Mastana and Vibs.

Since the story revolves around the love for music that the characters have, it plays a very important role to bind the script together. Clinton is a surprising choice for this kind of music and has done justice to the task at hand and has added a different flavor to the overall mood of the film. The music compositions in themselves are not anything magical, but the songs are beautifully written and do a wonderful job of taking the story forward. If you are not very familiar with Punjabi, then I would suggest that watch it with subtitles to really enjoy the movie.
