The first scene of the film shows off Naseeruddin Shah in an octopus-like wig.

Overall, Jackpot is one film which goes down completely thanks to some below-average execution. If you go in expecting a sultry Sunny Leone, then you will be cheated big time and so ignore this ‘Jackpot’ this weekend.

 While Jism 2 did not really exactly bring out her acting talents to the fore, we fail to realize why did the popular actress chose to choose a movie with a shoddy script, if she is serious about her Bollywood career.

On the whole, Jackpot fails to thrill or send a chill down the audience’s spine. It will, therefore, not appeal to the audience and will bomb at the box-office.

What works in favour of Jackpot’s music is the kind of variety that it offers, writes Joginder Tuteja.

This is Sachin Joshi's third attempt at becoming a star and it's as unrealistically driven as his earlier two ventures. Director Kaizad Gustad infamous for the 'umbai central' incident and famous for his second film the Jackie and Ayesha Shroff produced '

Sunny Leone reminds us of Katrina Kaif in her debut Boom a decade ago!

From the fag end of the first half 'Jackpot' gets the mood of joy on the screen. Till then the debutant director go helterskelter. When you come out of the theatre you would feel that the god given 'Jackpot' according to one's fate is right.

So here`s the bottom line. Sunny Leone hardly ever strips in ‘Jackpot’. The film is not about skin show. It`s more about scratching smooth surfaces to get to the evil avaricious core of the human heart. Everyone is greedy in Kaizad Gustad`s film, some mor

If you want a boom at the Box Office (pun intended), please be kind to your viewers’ sensibilities when investing so much time and effort in a film

This is Sachin Joshi's third attempt at becoming a star and it's as unrealistically driven as his earlier two ventures. Director, Kaizad Gustad, infamous for the 'Mumbai central' incident and famous for his second film the Jackie and Ayesha Shroff produced 'Boom' which had then fresher's Katrina Kaif and Padma Lakshmi displaying their booty with delicious candor, helms this one too. In 'Boom' he had Amitabh Bachchan do a whacky turn  while in this one he's got Naseeruddin Shah attempting to break stereotype.

Jackpot is a complete yawn-fest and sleep inducing con-film which really tests your patience despite a short run-time. Best avoided.

Worse, when Gustad tries banking on her oomph, she leaves the film fully busted.

Jackpot not only lacks a cohesive plot, its narrative too is painful and confusing. And if you thought Naseeruddin Shah would salvage the film with his acting ability, think again.

This non creative product bores you and makes you go for a drink break more than twice. This is termed as an erotic thriller at least for the sake of publicity and promotions but there are neither thrill nor esthetically shot erotic scenes in this film. N
