When a movie is made based on real-life incidents, that will definitely connect with the audience, as some of them might experience such a situation and some might have lived that situation. Jogi is one such movie that has scenes and situations that will surely connect with the Indian audience. Though the length of this movie is just 1 hour and 56 minutes, the movie never looks short as the emotional scenes make us involved in the movie. Emotional scenes in the movie are very well written and executed on screen by the actors.
When it comes to acting, Diljit Dosanjh had done a brilliant job as an actor and his role will be definitely remembered even after the movie ends. Mohd. Zeeshan Ayyub is another brilliant actor underutilized in the Hindi film industry and that can be proved by his performance once again in this film, Kumud Mishra is a brilliant actor who can handle any kind of role offered to him and the actor never disappoints with his performance. Amyra Dastur and all other actors did their part as required for the story.
Technically, Jogi movie looks okay. Music composed by Julius Packiam & Sameer Uddin is apt for the situations and elevates the emotions while watching. Cinematography handled by Marcin, LaskaWiec, and USC Marcin looks okay with a few shots, but the overall work of cinematographers is not up to the mark. The art department needs a special mention for their work on recreating the 1980’s setup. The production values of this movie are okay.
Director Ali Abbas Zafar was impressed with his making style and sticking to the plot without any unnecessary deviations.
Overall, Jogi is an intriguing and watchable emotional drama based on true events, that will definitely make your heart feel heavy.
