Film: Bobby Jasoos

Director: Samar Shaikh

Cast: Vidya Balan, Ali Fazal, Kiran Kumar, and Rajendra Gupta

Directed by Samar Shaikh, the flick will have Vidya in a very different role. Women centric films are Vidya’s USP and this detective comedy is in no way different. Ali Fazal, who earlier starred in hit films like ‘3 idiots’ and ‘Fukrey’, plays the male lead.

The film is co-produced by actress Dia Mirza and her beau Sahil Sangha.

Storyline: ‘Bobby Jasoos’ is the story of Bilqis Ahmed aka Bobby (Vidya Balan), who dreams of becoming a private detective. But her family differs from her opinion. They believe girls from this humble locality in Hyderabad don't do such outrageous things. But Bobby has a different perspective altogether. Bobby shares a brittle relationship with a television journalist Tssavur (Ali Fazal). The story focuses on how she accomplishes her goal amid all hurdles and her relationship with Tssavur.

Review: ‘Bobby Jasoos’ is a must watch movie as Vidya has done an outstanding role of a Hyderabadi woman. With her impeccable timing, faultless dialogue delivery in Hyderabadi dialect and her acting skills, Vidya just nails her goofy free-spirited character. The awesome chemistry between Vidya and Ali Fazal not for a minute appears unreal or manipulated. The style of romance between the two will surely be fresh for the viewers. Though the film belongs to Vidya, Ali makes his own space with pride, confidence and his acting skills. There are no item numbers, cheap thrills and the usual trappings of a wannabe blockbuster. It just has Vidya and that should be the reason enough for cine-buffs to go and watch the film.
