Jersey Movie Review – Our Rating

The movie overall does justice to the theme of the movie. Shahid was excellent in this movie and could be classified as one of his best works. Pankaj Kapoor with his small appearance in the movie made us nostalgic for the great actor he was. Mrunal Thakur played the role just as well as the original. The movie showcases a 2 states kind of theme where north and south Indian marriage follows with typical racist humor and drama. The movie was 3 hours long which was not necessary. The ending of the movie had a twist that was different from the original. Rests of the scene were scene-to-scene copies from the original 2019 Telugu version. Our rating for the film Jersy review is 3 out of 5 points.
