Did You Know?


The house where Bobby lives with her family was made up on the 1st floor of old haveli(mansion) in Kachiguda in Hyderabad. When it was found it was just an empty, dirty shell. Fake walls were created, windows, doors were added, entire place was painted and aged, front verandah was designed set up from scratch. See more »

It is Vidya Balan's show all the way in this average drama
5 July 2014 | by ketgup83See all my reviews

Indian Cinema has certainly evolved over the years with experimental movies Queen, Holiday , Filmistaan to name few. Bobby Jasoos succeeds in experimenting the truth but final act pauses the entire movement of the film.

Bobby Jasoos tells the story of a wanna-be-detective(Vidya Balan) who has been given a secret assignment to search for people whose identities are provided by a multi-millionaire unknown guy.

Directed by Samir Shaikh , Bobby Jasoos starts off well with few hilarious moments in the first half with the doubt factor remains till the end. Unfortunately , the movie tumbles in the climax which could have been made better. Editing is loose. Screenplay is weak . Cinematography and art direction is simple. Music is below par. Background score does not gel well with film. Dialogues are good. It is Vidya Balan's show all the way. The actress gets into the character of Bobby Jasoos and gives a performance with aplomb.

Overall, a very brave niche flick with commendable first half and not so engrossing later half. Average 2.5/5
