Jugjugg Jeeyo is a newly launched Bollywood movie that was theatrically released on 24 June 2022. The film stars very famous Indian Bollywood actors Anil Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani, and more. The reported budget of the film is nearly INR 80 to 150 crore. The official runtime of the film is 150 minutes and directed by Raj Mehta.
Talking about the movie. When I first saw the trailer of the film I got an overall idea that how this film is. And yes the idea was right. The main story of this film is a wedding and they show us this on three different levels. The first one is Prajakta Koli, she will just marry someone. On level two, they showed us Varun Dhawan and Kiara Adwani who are married many times ago. And the third they show us Anil Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor, who are very experienced in marriage life. Because they married each other many years before.
Everyone is facing their own level’s problems in their life and how the level third’s decision affects level two’s life and the decision of level two affects level first’s life. And if you add in this story Marriage+ and Divorce+ then the film will be created is Jugjugg Jeeyo.
I don’t agree with everything which this film says about marriage and you may also not because you may be married or you have seen some married persons in your neighborhood. So, don’t think that this film Jugjugg Jeeyo will give you much knowledge about marriage and after watching it you will change your mindset.
There are some twists in this film but majorly the story of the film is much more predictable and there are some moments when characters interact which cause my attention to the film. After watching the trailer of the film if you are thinking that this film is going to show you some drama and full comedy then NO. Basically, the movie is divided into equally two parts. In one part you will get majorly comedy and some drama and in the second part, you will get majorly drama and some comedy.
The performance of Neetu Kapoor was very amazing. There is a scene in the second half where she maintained a shoot for a long time and she was saying dialogue her performance was so amazing that whatever she said in that scene you can feel it. I was very surprised because of Anil Kapoor’s character and he chose it which is a good thing I was surprised because there are many flaws.
The father’s character of Varun Dhawan and his chemistry was soo good. The casting of the film’s actors is just very good because the energy which the actors had come with was needed. The humor of the film worked perfectly for me.
If you are planning to watch this film then most probably the reason is a comedy which worked perfectly. I liked how they created humor by using situations. But, some dialogues are cringy I am not saying that all dialogues are cringy I laughed after some dialogues because of the performance of Manish Paul but in some scenes, he crosses the lines.
Overall if you are not thinking about this film then this film is going to entertain you. No aspect of this film is flawless for example the songs of them are good and some of them are bad. I liked this film overall.
