Kaushik Ganguly in his Jackpot has tried to show the human face of the reality shows mired in controversy. Santanu Chakraborty of Aajkal wrote Rocket Singh-salesman of the Year was the human face of capitalism.Actually the word was coined by our honorable prime minister Manmohan Singh while referring to refoms.
The character of Piu Mukherjee,essayed by Koyel Mallick is not believable.Both the lead acotrs have done well.The role of the officer-in-charge is hilarious.The director in his Subash Ghai-esqe role is fine.
The music is good. Nachiketa's Bhola jaina is the pick of the lot.Directors from Kolkata never miss a chance to show Bolpur-Shantinekatan in thier films.Again Bengali filmmakers never hesitate to add rabindrasageet in their films.In this respect the ranbindrasangeet, ami chanchal o hai, hummed in this film is noteworthy.
However, Kaushik Ganguly is one of the current crop of direcotors who dares to think differently.And in this film he has proved his knack for offbeat subjects.
