Jayeshbhai Jordar is a 2022 Indian Hindi language comedy-drama film written and directed by Divyang Thakkar and produced by Aditya Chopra and Manish Sharma under Yash Raj Films. In the film, Ranbir Singh plays the son of a traditional Gujarati sarpanch, who believes in equal rights for men and women in society.
Another social message related movie. Great performance by Ranveer Singh, Shalini Pandey & Boman Irani. I love Ranveer Singh acting. Whatever character he plays, he try to give 100% effort for it. Ranveer Singh is gem of Bollywood.

Jayeshbhai Jordaar 2022 Movie Review
Jayeshbhai cannot hurt a fly to save his life but has a heart that wants to do better and be better than the misogynist and chauvinistic environment that he was raised in. He is appalled when his father (the village sarpanch) blames the girls and their scented soaps for luring men into eveteasing.
Despite witnessing the blatant injustice, he chooses to be a bystander even as his dictatorial parents go around cursing their ghunghatclad bahu for not giving them a waaris (heir). They even coax her into taking the sex determination test of her unborn child. Selfproclaimed custodians of culture convenient to them, the men of the village think it`s their job to police the ghagra paltan (women) of the village and ensure they have no voice. “Girls can’t get a husband if they learn English,” warns older people.
Is the Jayeshbhai man enough to overturn and dictate this ancient superstition? His debut writer and director, Divyang Thakkar, uses humor and satire to question social issues such as gender stereotypes, inequality, and female fetuses. The intent is noble, but youthful execution and sticky writing make it impossible for anyone like Ranveer to save the script. The recently released Sharmaji Namkeen also worked on gender composition with a bit of humor, but didn’t downplay trauma.
Jayeshbhai is obsessed with providing eccentric entertainment and is reluctant to show the seriousness of the issues it raises. However, to achieve that, the text needs to be clever, which is not the case here. Domestic violence, victim shame, girl empowerment, and other comical punches rarely land, so they have no effect. Lampeia’s solitude about daddy (kiss) comes to the wrong point in the movie so much that it causes a reluctant laugh.
Even that lonely and funny moment loses its charm when overstretched. The settings and accents are also exaggerated and superficial. Given the plot, you patiently wait for a moving moment, but they never come. All you see is Lampeia, dressed like a lampeia dressed in a flashy designer and trying to see it off as a country fashion. Speaking of actors, he’s a firecracker when it comes to performance and the presence of screens, but the script puts out his fire.
He works hard, and despite the creative glitches, Lampeia’s energy and relentless efforts to entertain leave you hope to the end. Again, the original Preeti by Arjun Reddy (Shalini Pandey) continues her obedient story. Hindi movies have long worshiped alpha men. Divyang wants to reverse that template and challenge the false bravery of a timid but determined hero. He also tries to look comfortably at dark subjects, but boring writing lowers this social comedy by a mile.
