. Yet the effort cannot be ignored having some bright merits too and therefore can easily be rated as one of the better Punjabi films of the recent times for sure. Synopsis: Jatt James Bond is the story of three strugglers who are in dire and desperate conditions. At the execution level, the major sequence of bank robbery is shown quite childishly in the film and its only the trio's performance which doesn't let you think over it in a logical manner. Due to which the second half starts stretching to an alarming extent leading to restlessness among the viewers and one wishes to jump on to its last reels as soon as possible.
And it has one of best background scores I have ever noticed in a Punjabi film in the recent years. Luckily the lost excitement is regained in the final 15 minutes and the director successfully manages to end it all on a satisfactory note. Lastly, let's get over with the ages old 'mixed fruit juice recipe' adding a love angle, few drunkards, a family rivalry, many comical gags and few songs into each and every film, irrespective of what its main plot is all about. Gippy who is a bus driver has fallen in love with beautiful Zarine Khan, but her overbearing father played by Vindu Dara Singh is strictly against the match because of dire economical status of Gippy. Zarine Khan was brought in from Mumbai to play the usual heroine in the film.
Synopsis: Jatt James Bond is the story of three strugglers who are in dire and desperate conditions. However since it keeps adding the same old clichéd elements too into the interesting proceedings carelessly , the end-result sadly falls short of being outstanding in honest terms. Punjabi audience have proved their intelligence by rejecting all the poor films made in the last year and now they urgently should be served with something path breaking and worth watching soon. There are just introductions, gags and songs in these initial reels and the film actually begins once the trio decides to do the one time robbery after almost 40 minutes. Taking on the praise-worthy features first, the film has three well defined lead characters having an emotional angle associated with their individual story too and not just some known names playing it pretty loud as usual.
Further in order to take the Punjabi Cinema to the next level, now its time that the lead actors, who happen to be professional singing stars too, start coming out of their 'singer image' and begin taking the art of cinema more seriously. Post intermission it all seems well for about 10-15 minutes, but then the script starts running out of ideas and moves back to the repetitive pattern of showcasing love drama, revengeful action and sad songs as the fixed norm of a Punjabi film. Moreover regarding the music, buying few readymade tracks available with some known names is another norm which the makers need to get rid of soon. Admittedly, though the film is not a great thriller or a thorough entertainer right till the end, due to many visible loopholes in the execution and many avoidable routine features. In other words, I wish to see a Punjabi film which asks for a remake in Hindi and other languages, instead of we making mediocre remakes of all other films.
But I simply couldn't understand, what was the need of roping her in spending the extra amount? The script revolves around a decent plot though inspired which has got the elements of thrill, suspense and action all together giving it the much required weight as desired. But due to this interesting twist the next 30 minutes become pretty engrossing and the viewer enjoys feeling that excitement along with the three friends committing the crime, before the screen says interval. Pointing towards the fixed format followed in Punjabi Cinema, its time that they stop spending time on long introductions in the beginning, satisfying the ego of every single artist featuring in it leading to boredom. Gippy who is a bus driver has fallen in love with beautiful Zarine Khan, but her overbearing father played by Vindu Dara Singh is strictly against the match because of dire economical status of Gippy. Few of the songs in its soundtrack are worthy enough to be enjoyed as individual tracks. .
