Bobby Jasoos Hindi Movie Reviews


Ratings:2.5/5 Review By: Rajeev Masand Site:CNN IBN

It’s a shame then that she’s let down by the very script itself, which — despite raising important questions about gender equality, financial independence of women, and parental obsession with marriage – fizzles out post-intermission. I’m going with two-and-a-half out of five for ‘Bobby Jasoos’. It needed more humor and more meat, but Vidya Balan comes out tops again.

While much of the first half is devoted to constructing the suspense, the post-interval portions, sadly, do not live up to those lofty expectations. Sure, there are some absorbing moments and you do hope to get a shocker when the veil of suspense is finally lifted  Sadly, what transpires makes you wonder, what was the chase all about?  Furthermore, the film lacks the thrill quotient, which is so essential in a film like this. On the whole, BOBBY JASOOS has an interesting premise, but the writing plays the spoilsport. The saving grace and also the USP is Vidya Balan for sure, but is that enough to salvage the film?

On the whole, Bobby Jasoos is not half as funny as it should’ve been, and it is also very unbelievable. It is different from the usual masala films alright but that is simply not enough to entertain the audience or to keep the producers and distributors in good spirits. Flop.

Vidya runs away with Bobby Jasoos. She is both the film’s hero and heroine, performing with deft innocence, presenting Bobby like a breeze. There are slight drawbacks – the acting sometimes slips into sit-com mode while the second half relaxes where it could’ve been more taut. But quibbles aside, Bobby Jasoos is a clever and joyful film. Should you watch it? Elementary, my dear friend.

Bobby Jasoos boils down to one of the worst climaxes I have ever watched. It is an end for the sake of an end, not because the story demands it to be so; and even though it is present, it does not serve its purpose. Bad songs, bad subplots, shabby direction make Bobby Jasoos a very, very confused film that is slightly better than a bearable watch only because of the strong heroine and the talented cast. Bobby might prove to be a good jasoos, but Bobby Jasoos has no clue about where it is going.

Equally importantly, Bobby Jasoos isn’t the sort of flick that is willing to stoop to any level simply to inveigle average consumers of Bollywood kitsch. A two-hour caper film that thrives on restraint, Bobby Jasoos takes a serious turn in the second half but retains its warmth all the way through.It is consistently charming, if not particularly exhilarating, and benefits immensely from Balan’s energetic performance.

There are many fine things about Bobby Jasoos. A terrific lead performance, a great supporting cast, surprising attention to detail and Hyderabad in full glory. But the outright winner is its writing, the quality of which is not often seen in Bollywood today. There are few things to complain about with Bobby Jasoos. It’s a delightful caper with a lot of heart, and you root for both the film and it’s protagonist all the way till the end. ​

the leading lady and her fine supporting cast (especially Ali Fazal, who holds his own) is let down by the writing, which loses steam after the half-way mark, and becomes an improbable re-up of a Manmohan Desai-style lost-and-found saga. ‘Bobby Jasoos’ works till the time Vidya Balan gets to lead from the front: the courtship with her reluctant suitor is one of the high points of the film. But I wish this amiable, light-hearted yarn had more ‘zaika’ and ‘tadka’. And the songs are strictly unnecessary and uninteresting. Post-interval, the surprises leachout. So does the fun.

The idea of Bobby Jasoos is good but the execution is not! The script is full of loopholes and is very predictable. Just when you feel the film is getting too long, there is a love song which is unnecessary. Music by Shantanu Moitra is strictly average. Bobby Jasoos could have been a winner but it lost track somewhere in between.

Bobby Jasoos makes a half decent attempt to attain the wholesome pace and the gritty thrill of Sujoy Ghosh’s Kahaani. And going by this film’s first half alone, it is semi successful. But that’s all. Minus Vidya, the film is quite a staple Bollywood affair which I had hoped was earnest about breaking the stereotypical shackles. Lamentably, Bobby Jasoos entangles itself gravely in gratuitous family and love issues. In my opinion both Balan and her character deserved a better ‘Kahaani’. Not half as bad but falls notches below the desired cut. ​

‘Bobby Jasoos’ is a fair attempt at doing something different, it fails to leave an impression because it’s unable to break-free from Bollywoocd stereotypes.For a movie that’s being pitched as the story of Bollywood’s first-ever woman detective, the basics appear unimportant. The investigation is cut short by Bollywood’s staple romance, a family drama and soundtracks, diluting the impact immensely. Despite the hype, ‘Bobby Jasoos’ just doesn’t make the cut. At least, not for us, especially since we cracked the case even before Bobby did.

Ratings:2.5/5 Review By: Manjusha Radhakrishnan Site: Gulfnews

The movie, which begins on a promising but languid note as a thriller set in a vibrant metropolis such as Hyderabad, morphs into a reluctant love story. Bobby gets side-tracked and the climax scenes, which should ideally be a crackling clincher to the mystery, come across as an afterthought. The suspense to the drama was so lame that we felt bad for the feisty Bobby and Balan: both deserved a riveting, gripping ending.

  1. why she did this movie? 1 star from me

  2. After much of critical appreciation, Vidya Balan has now been doing more of women centric films. The box office success of No One Killed Jessica, Kahaani and The Dirty Picture depicts the true caliber of this wonderful actor.
    Bollywood, these days, seems to be inspired by Hollywood and is coming up with a lot of private detective stories and what better than a female portraying the lead role!

    ‘Bobby Jasoos’ depicts the story of Bobby (Vidya Balan) who is living with her family in Hyderabad. Chasing her dream of becoming a successful private detective, she initially offers to work for a private detective agency. But when things don’t work in her favor, Bobby decides to start her own private agency. Soon the cases start flocking in. Bobby is approached by Anees Khan (Kiran Kumar) who asks her to trace some missing people. What is his motive? Why he’s looking for a specific set of people?

    The biggest problem with Bobby Jasoos is its script. With so much of potential in the plot of a female Private Detective, Bobby Jasoos is let down by its poor writing. The first half constantly tortures you. I was literally waiting for an intermission to happen. Plus the songs are there to test your patience as well.
    The second half though, is satisfactory.

    Vidya Balan again shines as an actor. No matter how good the script it, she portrays her role with so much of ease. Thumbs up for her! Ali Fazal and Arjan Bajwa are decent. Kiran Kumar is excellent. The senior brigade Tanvi Azmi, Supriya Pathak and Rajendra Gupta do justice to their role.

    Bobby Jasoos remained a big disappointment to me as a movie enthusiast. Still if you wish to watch it, Vidya Balan can be your only rescue.

    Rating- 1.5/5
