“There’s a story. Get working on it right away.”
Vidya Balan is coming back with another of her acting masterpieces (taking into account her track record of women centric films with an intense, strong, and effective storyline) with Jalsa. Directed by Suresh Triveni, Jalsa is a Hindi language thriller which follows a certain investigative journalist and highlights the dilemma and dangers that come with covering a story that might be a potential threat to a specific powerful faction.
The film has a long list of producers which includes Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Vikram Malhotra, Shikhaa Sharma, Suresh Triveni, and Karuna Vishwanath acting as the associate producer.
With the teaser of the film finally being surfaced, let’s see what all we know about the upcoming project:
Jalsa Release Date
Prime Video is all set to release Jalsa globally on the platform on March 18, 2022.
Jalsa Trailer and Teaser
The teaser doesn’t reveal anything regarding the actual plot, however, is successful in grabbing the attention and interest of the viewers. The name of the film seems to be quite ironic to the whole intense vibes of the film. Jalsa particularly means a gathering or a celebration which doesn’t really align with what the film seems to offer. In a particular scene a sentence is said out loud, “These days, it’s better to hide the news than to say it,” with that said it is expected that the storyline will navigate through the flaws in a profession as raw and truthful as journalism and as responsible as law enforcement.
It is next to impossible to join the dots of the plot through the trailer, however, through the shots included, one can decipher the tension and can’t help but wonder how the things will unfold.
The film revolves around a hit and run case of an 18-year-old and its controversial aftermath. The film touches the topic of corruption in law enforcement which is not exactly a safe zone in filmmaking. The story takes the perspective of a journalist and the victim’s mother who together are ready to overtax their strengths in order to get to the bottom of the issue at hand. Things get further intense when not even people from a profession like journalism, who are said to be equally powerful in a country, are ready to lend a hand.
