JurmJurm: Style sans substance

Vikram Bhatt's movie Jurm is like a stale chocolate wrapped inside a beautiful package. The movie is high on style but low on substance.

Starring Bobby Deol , Lara Dutta , Gul Panag and Milind Soman , Jurm begins on a promising note with a murder, the arrest of an unlikely suspect, and the flashbacks of love and tenderness between the two key characters of the story.




The first half of the movie is interspersed with flashbacks of romance and marriage between Bobby and Lara. But the narrative loses its momentum with the beginning of the second half when things begin to get painfully predictable.

Bobby plays a business tycoon Avinash, who is arrested for the murder of his wife Sanjana (Lara Dutta). Avinash's good friend Rohit (Milind Soman) fights his case in the court. As the case proceeds, Avinash's innocence becomes more and more difficult to prove.

In this dark hour, when Avinash can't seem to trust anyone, the only person who stands by him is Sonia (Gul Panag) who loves him secretly but has never expressed her emotions.

Unable to prove his innocence, Avinash escapes from the prison and flees to Malaysia. As he penetrates deeper into the mystery of his wife's murder, he comes across a startling truth that makes him rethink his relation with his wife all over again.

Vikram Bhatt has not been able to spin a gripping story, and the suspense in the movie is predictable to anybody who has even a little bit of grey matter between his or her ears.

Another problem with Jurm is that it offers nothing new and fresh. What it offers has been seen umpteen times before in Hindi films. Secondly, the script of the movie has tremendous scope for improvement.
