A suspense-soaked version of Daag The Fire
Jazbaa is termed as the copy of a Korean movie Seven Days (2007). However after watching it, I am able to contrast the theme of Jazbaa with an old Bollywood movie – Daag The Fire (1999) starring Sanjay Dutt, Chandrachur Singh and Mahima Chaudhary which was directed by Raj Kanwar. While all the reviewers are singing in chorus that Jazbaa is the Indian version of Seven Days, not a single one is pointing out that Seven Days itself could be inspired by the Bollywood movie – Daag The Fire. The scripts are different, no doubt but the theme and the undercurrent is the same. Jazbaa is looked upon as a thriller based on the issue of rape but in fact, the real theme of Jazbaa is different. It’s the story of a corrupt lawyer whose personal tragedy proves as an eye-opener for her. The same is the theme of Daag The Fire though there is no suspense element in Daag The Fire like this movie. The role played by Aishwarya Rai in Jazbaa is akin to the role played by Chandrachur Singh in Daag The Fire. And anybody can verify this fact that the final interaction of Aishwarya Rai and Shabana Aazmi in Jazbaa is a ditto of the final shot of Daag The Fire involving Chandrachur Singh and Sanjay Dutt. Then who is a copycat ? Is the maker of Jazbaa only who has unfortunately earned the ill-repute of lifting stories of his movies from foreign movies ? But the thief is always the one who gets caught. Whosoever knows the trick of the trade, i.e., not to get caught escapes the stigma of being called a thief.
Now for the assessment of Jazbaa. It’s a quality suspense-thriller though the filmmaker, i.e., Sanjay Gupta has focused more on style than substance.
As clarified in the opening para of this review, Jazbaa is the story of a corrupt lawyer (Aishwarya Rai) who takes the cases of the outlaws and the guilty only in order to earn handsomely which is not possible by fighting for some cause or ensuring justice to innocents. However when her daughter is kidnapped, this lawyer who is a single mother, finds the world as upside down for her. With the help of her silent lover who is a suspended cop (Irrfan), she pays the ransom not in cash but in kind which is to get a convict of rape and murder free from not only the gallows but also prison. The bulk of the story goes in the efforts of this lawyer-cum-bereaved mother and her silent lover. On one hand, they are busy in arranging evidences in favour of the convict, on the other, they are busy in searching for the kidnapped child. What happens in the end, proves to be an eye-opener for the corrupt lawyer.
Though the director Sanjay Gupta has not done proper justice to the good stuff at his hand, the movie is nevertheless gripping right from the word ‘go’ to the climax. The issue of rape is imposed on the script and the data of this crime given in the end are useless and irrelevant. Actually the focus should have been on the corruption in the profession of law when reputed lawyers become defense counsels for the people guilty of heinous crimes like rape and murder for the sake of getting exorbitant fees from their clients. But the director has not done so. There are ‘n’ number of plot-holes and untied loose ends alongwith inconsistencies and contradictions in the script and many things are not clarified till the very end, the most prominent of which is the mastermind’s getting complete information of every move of the lawyer after the kidnapping of her daughter. How could it be possible ? Sanjay Gupta may be knowing. The audience couldn’t make it out even after watching the complete movie. Besides, Sanjay Gupta only must be knowing the relevance of the title of this movie which has nothing to with its story.
All the same, the movie works because of its pace. The fast pace of the narrative does not give any time to the audience to pause and think. The viewer just keep on watching while holding his breath. Besides, this is not a pure thriller. It’s a suspense-thriller. The suspense element has been kept intact till the climax which is a big achievement of the director.
No songs are required in this type of movie because songs only interrupt the flow of the fast-moving narrative. All the same, Jaane Tere Sheher Ka Kya Iraada Hai is quite impressive in terms of both lyrics and composition (plus Irrfan’s performance on that).
This is termed as the comeback movie of Aishwarya Rai and her admirers are going gaga over her performance in this movie. However though the aging actress is quite beautiful even in her forties and post motherhood in her real life, her performance is so-so only. Those who are admiring her performance are not able to differentiate between acting and shrieking. Despite being a heroine-centric movie, Irrfan takes the cake as far as the clapping and accolades of the audience are concerned. However it’s Shabana Aazmi who is the best performer though she is definitely miscast for the role of the mother of a teenager (being in her sixties, she straightaway looks as the grandma of a teenager).
While advising all the reviewers to check the facts properly before terming any Indian movie as a copy of some foreign movie because almost all are copycats now (including both the Indian and the foreign filmmakers) sending originality for a toss, I recommend this fast-paced engrossing movie to all those who are fond of suspense-thrillers. It will prove to be no less than a roller-coaster ride for them.
Jazbaa – A Tale of Two Mothers
When I first heard that Aishwarya Rai was back on the silver screen after a five year hiatus, I immediately checked out the trailer for the movie Jasbaa. There seemed to be an overuse of the green filter but also featured some great action scenes. What tweaked my interest even more was to find two other Bollywood legends, Irrfan Khan and Shabana Azmi were also starring. If you did what I did next and watched the music video for Bandeyya, where Aish is like Venus descended, you will be fooled as none of those scenes nor locations were featured in the movie.
Filmed close to perfection in terms of pacing, timing and dialogue, Sanjay Gupta has taken the story from the Korean film, Seven days (2007) and delivers this simple plot line of a mother’s desperate need to save her daughter in four days! Single mother, Anuradha Verma’s daughter is kidnapped. The ransom is not for cash, but for the services of Anuradha’s expertise legal maneuvers as a prominent defense (criminal) lawyer, who has never lost a case, to acquit a death row prisoner on appeal, Miyaaz Shaikh (Chandan Roy Sanyal). Miyaaz, convicted for the rape and murder of Sia, a young art student, has all the evidence pointing to him. Surprisingly, Anuradha agrees. Suspended police officer and long time friend of Anuradha, Inspector Yohaan joins her quest to re-investigate Miyaaz’s case to save Anuradha’s daughter.We meet Garima, a headstrong lady, Sia’s mother, who wants nothing more than to see Miyaaz punished for his crime. There are a slew of other characters that make the legal and investigatory journey, a thrilling one, notably Sam (Siddhanth Kapoor), a drug crazed classmate and boyfriend of Sia, who later transpires to be part of he crime. You will spend the interval, wondering, what twist lie ahead and most of the second half of the movie will be spent second guessing what the purpose of the acquittal of Miyazz serves. I guarantee you will be surprised at the end. Don’t stop watching when the credit’s start as there is a short epilogue, wrapping up Anuradha and Yohaan’s relationship. And the film’s final message of the fight against rape in India is a great message that needs to be applauded.
Sanjay Gupta’s green filter signature style is a little disturbing at first but I found that it worked well with this movie, setting the tone and mood of the scenes. There were other filming aspects which worked well, especially the interesting aerial shots, the dark clouds shrouding Mumbai’s skyline in background shots, the amazing lighting design, especially in a night time fight scene between Yohann and Vijay, another convict. Some may find the dialogs a little preposterous, but I found that they were relevant as in real life, we do say and react sillily. Irrfan and Shabana’s parts were better written and executed; Irrfan for his delivery of over the top dialogs with flair and Shabana, was on fire in the final scene as well as the one where she finds out that Anuradha, who she believed was on her side, is now defending her daughter’s killer. Aishwraya’s performance hasn’t changed much from before. She is reasonable good in the part but there are parts of the film is performed with a dead stare in her eyes, and the roar of a lion. Perhaps, that is how Sanjay Gupta wanted her role to be played. She screams a helluva lot in this movie, so be prepared!
What boggles the mind is the insertion of two songs in a thriller movie that can do without. OK, the hip hop, Badshah’s Aaj Raat Ka Scene happens in a nightclub so that was acceptable. The courtroom scenes and reenactment of the murder scene were great. There were some witty lines in the courtroom scene, where the two advocates battling out the case, whilst the judge was virtually asleep.
My recommendation is that Jasbaa falls short of being in the league of some great movies this year, but still a watchable and enjoyable one. This 119 minute film will keep you entertained enough.
