Jaadugar Movie Review: Story

We were introduced to Meenu aka Magic Meenu(Jitendra Kumar), a young man from Neemuch, Madhya Pradesh, whose only goal in life is to win the girl he loves. His first love is Kulfi from childhood, so at first, he decided to be a Kulfiwala but his mother warned him about the difficulties he may face in marriage if he becomes a Kulfiwala. Finally, Meenu met magician Chhabra (Manoj Joshi) who left a long-lasting first impression on him and he decided to become a magician too.

Meenu hates football & the tragic death of his parents was the sole reason for this. Now he lives with his retired footballer and current coach uncle Pradeep(Jaaved Jaaferi). Pradeep’s only goal in life is to win Dhabolkar trophy (a local football tournament) at least once as this was the only dream of Meenu’s father. Well, the team he is coaching is far from capable of winning a single match, the defeat is a routine for them, and each defeat only differs in the margin. Each member of the team is busy doing everything except focusing on the game but Pradeep is not ready to give up.

Meenu loves Iccha(Rukshar Dhilon) but he never cared whether the girl loves him too or not, as he keeps himself busy impressing them all the time with his magic and tricks. So, when he came to know from Lalli(Raj Qushal) that Iccha is going to Jodhpur with the family for her marriage, he could not stop himself and went to the station to stop her. The embarrassing situation he created in front of Iccha’s parents led her to break up with him.

After the breakup, Meenu preferred to seek help from his Guru magician Chhabra than become Devdas. He found his next love in Dr. Disha Chhabra (Arushi Sharma) who is an ophthalmologist and uninterested in Meenu. But he is not a guy to step back after getting rejected several times by her and he keeps trying his luck on her.

The story takes a turn when he came to know about her divorce. Meenu gets another shock when he came to know that his Guru magician Chhabra is Disha’s father. Then again he gets another shock and what was that? Well, let’s not spoil anymore.

Jaadugar Movie Review: Performances & Analysis

Watching Jitendra Kumar chasing girls reminded me of Mahesh Babu doing the same in Sarkaru Vaari Paata but the difference is there definitely. Meenu doesn’t remember the surnames of the girls he falls in love with, their ambition in life, & important information that girls share with him. 

Jitendra Kumar is the only reason you can convince yourself to watch Jaadugar on Netflix. The kind of character he chooses whether in Panchayet or Kota Factory or here probably makes him the best for these characters. Ignoring a few little flaws we can say he is convincing and outstanding in Jaadugar.

Director Sameer Saxena tried to make this sports drama cum romantic comedy an extraordinary one but with too many sub-plots and an effort to add too many twists in the story, it became less or not convincing at all. Too many questions remained unanswered; working a bit more on the script could have made the story more convincing and engaging.

Javed Jaaferi as Pradeep also delivered a noteworthy performance; especially in the emotional scenes, he was superb. Arushi Sharma did a fantastic job as Disha but a little more focus on her character could have been worthy. Manoj Joshi and Rukshar Dhilon also provided ably support with their respective characters.

Jaadugar Movie Review: Final Words

If you are a fan of Jitendra Kumar after watching his mind-blowing performances in Panchayet and Kota Factory then you should not miss Jaadugar.
