His story is written by Prajwal Chandrashekhar, Suresh Triveni, Hussain Dalal and Abbas Dalal. The movie ‘Jalsa’ is a great example of the best acting of Vidya Balan and Shefali Shah. Both actresses have already won the hearts of the audience with their strong acting. Shefali from the web series ‘Delhi Crime’ and ‘Human’ and movies like ‘Lioness’ and ‘Shankutala Devi’ have shown that she has the power to make any type of cinema successful on her own. It’s even better to see them both together in this movie.
The movie ‘Jalsa’ is being broadcast on the Amazon Prime Video OTT platform.
The story of the film begins with a heartbreaking incident. A couple is shown wandering around on bicycles late at night. Meanwhile, the girl suddenly finds herself in front of a speeding car. The girl is seriously injured in this horrible accident. It is later revealed that the car that caused the accident was being driven by a famous journalist Maya Menon (Vidya Balan). The victim of the accident is the daughter of her housemaid Rukhsana (Shefali Shah), who works in her house. The night of the accident, Maya returns to her house after slandering the retired Chief Justice in her flawless interview, when she falls asleep while she is driving the car. During this time this accident occurs. Maya has a son, who is autistic (mental illness). Her husband has set the world apart from her after the divorce. But she keeps coming to meet her son.
Rukhsana takes great care of Maya’s son. She even has two children of her own. But she leaves them alone and stays with Maya’s son. During this, her own daughter keeps coming out of her hand. The son doesn’t listen either. But even after all this, she takes care of Maya’s family as if it were her own family. In such a situation, when Rukhsana’s daughter is injured by Maya’s car, her life changes in minutes. The irony is that it affects not only Maya, but Rukhsana, her maid, her family, her son, and many other characters who are shocked to see her. For a moment it seems that what will happen to Maya’s son now. Because there is an emotional attachment through him, which has expanded through Rukhsana’s character. Shefali Shah has lived with impunity this character.
Suresh Triveni with his team has filmed the plot of the story of Prajwal Chandrashekhar, Suresh Triveni, Hussain Dalal and Abbas Dalal in a way that seems real. As he watches the movie, he will be so immersed that he won’t feel like he is watching the movie. Rather he will feel the real world. Each frame is strong. Each character tells a story. Each dialogue has a broad meaning. Every artist honestly lives his character. Not only this, no separate effort has been made to enhance the humor in the film, but it comes through in serious scenes. When it comes to the acting of the actors, Vidya Balan and Shefali Shah are really the life of him. It will not be an exaggeration to call the characters of both the pillars of his story. Both actresses have proven to be terrifying from an acting standpoint. They are one after another.
Vidya is strong in the character of a sharp-tongued journalist despite being the mother of a child, Shefali is a kind-hearted woman caring for a sick child, and her strong presence as an angry mother after an accident with her daughter. . It is good to see actress Rohini Hatangadi playing Vidya’s mother after a long time. Iqbal Khan and Manav Kaul don’t get a lot of screen space, but they’ve managed to make an impact even in a short amount of time. Surya Kasibhatla and Vidhatri Bandi are also effective in their respective roles. Saurabh Goswami’s camera work is good. He has captured many memorable scenes on his camera. If Shiv Kumar Panicker’s editing had been a little tighter, the film might have been even better. Because it is considered a long duration of 2 hours 10 minutes according to OTT. Well, except for this defect, the film has turned out to be very spectacular. It must be seen for the excellent performances by Vidya Balan and Shefali Shah.
