#Jalebi unleashes a new generation of unapologetic millennials grappling with old questions around love in quirky and fresh new ways. The refreshing plot – based around a Bengali #blockbuster – throws a posse of promising youngsters in a whirlwind of events.
The old rules of romance don’t apply anymore, and when the twist comes, it is interesting to see how the characters fend for themselves. Ex-MTV VJ Rhea Chakraborty – the female lead of Jalebi – grabs her meatiest tinseltown role yet with enthusiasm. So does writer, reality show participant and TV actress Digangana Suryavanshi, for whom this is a #Bollywood debut. The two commend enough sincerity and firepower at their disposal to bring the story to life, with Varun Mitra playing the perfect foil as protagonist.
The chirpy #music – with the promise of an Arijit Singh number –adds a dollop of Rabri magic to Jalebi. Factor in the combined touch of Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt, and you see why this is a MUST BITE for those with a sweet tooth for romance tales with a punch.
