Editorial Reviews


Madhur Bhandarkar yet again takes us right into the underbelly of a world we never knew existed like it is. With his well researched and authentic treatment, Madhur makes us feel the pain and anguish of what a person must be undergoing when he is put in jail. The dialogues are razor sharp befitting a Madhur Bhandarkar film and the large number of character actors carefully chosen justifying their parts with their natural act. The film has many characters put in for real life references like for example the infamous drunk and drive incident on a Mumbai road. Although, it takes a little extra time for the story to build up, after the interval point it packs in a solid punch. Camerawork by Kalpesh Bhandarkar and background music deserve special mention. Sayali Bhagat s item song will please the front benchers.

Madhur has the knack of deriving award winning performances from his principal cast and in here Neil delivers an award worthy performance as Parag Dixit. The manner in which he has successfully conveyed his anger, frustration and sheer helplessness against the situation that he has been subjected to deserves a bow. Mugdha Godse in a non-glam part is good. Manoj Bajpai in his intense act is simply superb. His meaningful gaze conveys a lot. Playing jail inmates - Rahul Singh as Gani bhai and Arya Babbar as the underworld recruiter are excellent in their parts. Atul Kulkarni impresses in the two scenes he gets during the climax.

Watch Jail for an experience of a trip to a world which you will wish you never to visit even in your worst nightmares.

Format: DVD
Jail continues the tradition of Madhur Bhandarkar's earlier directorial attempts i.e realistic portrayal of different themes and exposing the inner workings and highlighting its good and bad. While I thought Chandni Bar was the best of his outings, Corporate, Page 3 and to a certain extent Fashion were okay as well.
Jail is a well intentioned film based on the Brazilian movie 'Carandiru' but it falters because the situations are predictable and not so absorbing. You get the feeling that you have seen this before. Nothing is new in this movie, except may be the actors. Parag Dixit played by Neil Nitin Mukesh is on a roll. He has a good job, a devoted girlfriend played by Mugdha Godse until one day he is busted by the police for drug peddling. He is an innocent who has been framed by his friend. The rest of the movie follows his trials in the jail and the subsequent drama that he undergoes in there. The jail gives us a glimpse in to the lives of many characters and their stories before after and during their jail time. These characters simply add minutes to the running time and no depth at all. Jail works in parts and simply because of Neil Nitin Mukesh who is supported by Manoj Bajpai as a fellow prisoner. Neil conveys the anguish and the frustration of a innocent wrongly accused capably. However the rest of the film just does not manage to imprison you to your seat. I gave it two and 1/2 stars. 02/25/10

This was a really good movie in my opinion. It started off a bit confusing but ended up alright.
