Film Review: Good Luck Jerry

Starring: Janhvi Kapoor, Deepak Dobriyal, Sahil Mehta, Mita Vashisht, Neeraj Sood, Sushant Singh, Saurabh Sachdeva, Samta Sudiksha, Jaswant Singh Dalal

Director: Siddharth Sen

Coming all the way from Bihar, Sharbati (Vashisht) and her daughters Jerry (Kapoor) and Cherry (Sudiksha) continue in a middle-class background after the death of her husband. Making Punjab their new home, Sharbati manages to make momos (dumplings) for sale while Jerry begins working as a masseuse at a massage parlour conflicting with her mother’s will. The mother-daughter clashes often lead to amicable heart-warming moments throughout the film.

On a random day at the bazaar, Jerry and Cherry find themselves in a fix having been confronted by Timmy (Dalal), a drug peddler. Compelled to retrieve a packet of cocaine from the market under surveillance, Jerry successfully manages to do the needful. To further complicate their “not so easy” going times, the sisters learn about their mother’s cancer.

Not looking for a career switch, however, financial constraints turn the docile Jerry from a simple masseuse into a cocaine smuggler, an alternative income to pay for her mother’s treatment. Jerry is hired by Timmy, disguised as a dhabba (roadside stall) owner who is once again charmed by her beauty and innocent features.

Film Review: Wedding Season

Wanting out from this game and much to her dismay, Jerry finds herself in a complete mess with the mafia threatening to hurt her family. Bestowed with one last delivery, Jerry is asked to dodge the police and peddle 100 Kgs of cocaine. In the game of cat and mouse, Jerry must think up a wacky idea to outplay the goons and the cops.

After a rather chaotic climax of tragicomedy, the film comes to an end with an interesting twist of events. Will Jerry and her family escape from this unforeseen jumble?

Director Siddharth has draped in multiple elements to keep the audience rolling on the floor laughing. Rounds of dumb charades in tense situations, Bihari-Punjabi cultural differences have the characters heavily invested in creating laughs.

Janhvi Kapoor makes quirk comedy debut with ‘GoodLuck Jerry’

Janhvi Kapoor does a credible job to uplift her role as Jerry whose perkiness is hidden under a coy personality. Sahil Mehta playing the silly sidekick, Jigar and Deepak Dobriyal, hair streaked egg seller Rinku besotted by Jerry are two funny figures spurting comedy all along. Others such as Malik (Sachdeva), the drug distributor, Daler (Singh) the drug lord, Anil (Sood), the lurky neighbour and Sharbati too have held the fort with their excellent comic timing.

This Disney+ Hotstar special holds much luck to lure the audience who are in for a riot of laughs and giggles.
