Jalsa What’s your Reaction? +1 0 +1 0 +1 0 +1 0 +1 0 Facebook Twitter Email It tells the story of a celebrated journalist and her cook and their conflict. Even the most seasoned cinephiles would agree, Suresh Triveni’s Jalsa is an uncommonly well-made film for mainstream Bollywood. It’s slickly directed, impeccably designed, and thematically ambitious. But it makes every point that it wants to by the end of its first act. With a bit of a shrug, it spends the next 45 minutes taking the audience on a convoluted tour inside the minds of its increasingly detestable characters. And then, having made little headway beyond what it had already uncovered about them half-an-hour in, the film simply decides to end—concluding with a whimper instead of a wallop. You don’t know what to make of it. If you have not watched the film yet, consider this a spoiler alert.
