“Jackpot” is all set to re release in cinemas this Friday.The latest offering from the film’s promotions is track titled Jo jo Janta hai released just recently. The song is composed by Naveed Nashad, while its lyrics are penned by Mubashir Hassan with vocals by Damia, Zain Ali, Asad Abbas & Javed Sheikh himself. Although the lyrics are not noteworthy but being a situational comedy it serves the purpose. While music by Nashad has an uplifting feel to it and vocals are good too, everything else is a disappointment. Cinematography of the song is decent but choreography is largely flawed. However one good aspect of the video is the cheerful presence of Javaid Sheikh.
“Jackpot” is produced by Khurram Riaz and Shoaib Khan. Film is written by Babar Kahmiri who is known for the script of 2002’s blockbuster film Yeh Dil Apka Hua. Directed by Shoaib Khan, film’s cast includes Javed Sheikh, Noor Hassan, Sanam Chaudhry, Inayat Khan, Reyhna Malhota, Sana Fakhar, Adnan Shah Tipu and Ismail Tara. Film was first released in July last year and failed to gain audience attention and response from all critics was alike. With a weak marketing and no buzz this time, will “Jackpot” be able to benefit from this re-release? Well that remains to be seen.
“Jackpot” releases in cinemas nationwide on 11th January, 2019.
