Jalaibee's story revolves around two friends Billu and Bugga who get tangled up in a debt with the local mafia called The Unit. As they look for ways to pay the debt before The Unit comes to collect, they find out they are in deeper waters than they thought. At the same time another man Ali, along with his partner Jimmy, wants revenge and has the intentions to kidnap and kill the Mafia lord known as The King. The King's front man Dara is caught between collecting the debt and handling the kidnapping while retaining fear and control over the city.Written by

lets start off by saying that the title has nothing to do with the plot except that the plot itself is the title. The movie starts off in a very traditional manner and continues to do so for about the first 40 mins and till then the film is going nowhere but takes a couple of good twists which were unpredictable and good to see.
Technically the movie wasn't that bad and the director has done some pretty neat stuff, my only problem though was the camera work, it felt like they were trying to pull off something completely new but mostly ended up in some really shitty camera angles, there was also a bit of shaky cam in the start which did not work at all.
The acting was satisfactory in general, Sajid Hassan and Adnan Jaffar did extremely well but Danish and Sabeeka were too bad, Danish was going for that macho Salman khan thing which was well disappointing to say the least while Sabeeka was nothing more than a Katrina Kaif wannabe.
The movie was filled with cinematic clichés and Bollywood humor which is not all appropriate for the Pakistani "family" audience not to mention the completely needless item song, the curse words and the excess drinking scenes. There were some definite sins in there the most prominent being Islamabadi people using Karachi accents and Karachi slang. The jokes weren't really funny and the references were not working.
In conclusion, Jalibee is decent enough movie and is not as bollywood-ish as "Na Maloom Afraad" or "Main hoon Shahid Afridi" and deserves a watch.
My Rating 6/10
