Do not pin your hope on the film. Misses the jackpot
15 December 2013 | by ketgup83See all my reviews

In the early 90's , Kaizad Gustad struck a chord with Indian audience with niche films in form Bombay Boys. Over the years, he has lost energy to tap in quality product. Jackpot is yet another dud from Kaizad Gustad which will be forgettable once you leave the theater.

Jackpot tells the story of con attempted by amateur gang members. Things turns topsy turvy when they discover about reverse con played upon them.

Right from the openings credits inspired by a James Bond film to the typical action thriller set in Goa, Jackpot does not liven your spirit at any moment. Kaizad Gustad tries hard but falls flat on the face with weak script. The film do have some twist and turns but it never re- ignites the mood. Cinematography and art direction are below the mark as if you are watching some 90's drama. Naseeruddin Shah is only silver lining in the mess. Sunny Leone and Sachin Joshi are over the top.

Do not pin your hope on the film. Misses the jackpot . Poor 1/5
