It is obvious from the start that Jerry, the protagonist of this adventure, utilises her timid emotional attitude as a cunning shield. A dark comedy starring a clever woman (Janhvi Kapoor), her cheerful younger sister (Samta Sudiksha), and their mother (Mita Vashisht), the source of their intelligence, is the official adaptation of the 2018 Nayanthara movie “Kolamaavu Kokila.” In a town in Punjab, these ladies make up a small Bihari family unit that is surrounded by various types of males. Neeraj Sood is a kind-hearted uncle ji kind who is gentle with the mother. Deepak Dobriyal, a layabout with multicoloured hair streaks, keeps a close eye on Jerry. eccentric drug traffickers who are eager to fire their firearms and are always on the watch for couriers.
The story centres on Jerry (Janhvi Kapoor), a young lady who, after experiencing a life-changing incident, chooses to covertly join the drug trade in order to get quick cash for her mother’s medical expenses. She discovers that she isn’t awful at the job with her naïve manner not inviting any suspicion until, as a result of a series of circumstances, Jerry becomes involved in a drug ring stint. She decides to start selling drugs actively in order to get quick cash for her mother’s medical bills, but she quickly learns that she has plunged headfirst into a grotesque and perilous sea.
Regarding the performances, Janhvi Kapoor tries her best despite a few wobbly moments. Particularly in situations where she portrays her manipulative side while wearing an innocent persona, the actress seems enhanced. Goodluck Jerry is without a doubt Janhvi’s most spectacular filmography to date in terms of her performance, it can be mentioned. She still has to improve on the emotionally intense situations that have been difficult for her thus far. But the performances of the supporting cast members give the movie the much-needed Tadka.
Rangarajan Ramabadran’s cinematography does a good job of depicting the rural areas of Punjab and also creates an ominous undertone while displaying the shadowy dungeons and bustling centre of the drug trade. Although Parag Chhabra’s score doesn’t contain any particularly memorable songs, it does a good job of moving the story forward and, in particular, makes up for a strong opening credit. To see a well-produced dark comedy with some minor successes and misses, watch Goodluck Jerry.
