The only reason you would like to see Bobby Jasoos is because of sparkling Bilkis played by Vidya Balan. You find the film promising as it starts but its not that promising throughout.
Bobby wants to be a jasoos(detective) and that ambition of hers is not supported by her family except for her Mom and Khaala. She eventually pursues her ambition and the idea looks interesting with Vidya putting up different disguises. But the execution is not as interesting as it could be. Movie looses the track in between after the interval. The director probably could not handle sub-plots wisely. The music is about average.
The surprise element in the movie is Ali Fazal who plays an ambitious journalist Tassawur. He sticks to his character and leaves a strong impact as Vidya’s confident co-star. Their love story is not portrayed well and is quite abrupt.The climax of the film doesnt leave a strong impact. The end of the movie is also just for the sake of it.
We dont doubt Vidya’s caliber, she has the vivacity to carry the film on her shoulders but this one doesnt cast the magic spell on the viewers. We wish the talented actress a better luck next time.
Final Verdict: Great actors but not a great script
