Introduction of ‘Jabariya Jodi’ Movie Review
Abhay Singh (Sidharth Malhotra) runs a syndicate of kidnapping greedy grooms, who demand dowry in Bihar’s Madhopur. He then, forcefully marries them off to the girl, calling it a ‘surprise party’. But when his childhood sweetheart Babli (Parineeti Chopra) re-enters his life, he must choose between love and his long-term ambitions.
Abhay’s political ambitions and his flourishing business are both derailed when he meets Babli (Parineeti Chopra). He can’t decide whether he is in love with her, and she wonders if she should rebel against her family for him. The plot meanders enough to keep the two leads confused till the end of the film, at which point everything miraculously falls into place.
Director Prashant Singh and scriptwriter Sanjeev K Jha are tone-deaf in their treatment of the subject. There is a social message about dowry here somewhere, but it is buried deep and never articulated. Babli’s regressive ideas about relationship and marriage and Abhay’s complete disregard for consent make for a messy tale that sees people being forced into marriage in the guise of social service.
‘Jabariya Jodi’ Movie Review in Chopra and Malhotra are stilted and ineffective, and their chemistry is non-existent. It is almost as if the two were dragged to the sets of the film and forced to act – just like the characters in the film. Much like its title, “Jabariya Jodi” is a forced and unnecessary effort, one that we could all have done without.
