A Tiring Parade Of Predominantly Juvenile Jokes

While it is good to see a heroine donning the mass avatar and have a ball, Jyothika doesn't really fit the bill here. For these films to work you will have to buy into the madness of the characters. Here it comes through as though someone is putting up a performance. The gags simply dont work. Sadl...(more)

An unapologetically made fun film, this may appeal to those who love watching movies in this genre.

Though the story has nothing new to offer except the plot surrounding the vessel, the film manages to entertain, thanks to some of the comic scenes which are devoid of double-entendre. The background score, however, reminds us of music from a few other movies. The two songs do not add much value to ...(more)

Jyotika aces her 'mass' avatar in this comedy

Jackpot is good fun. There is no logic. You will have to put up with a few preachy scenes in the middle (it seems to be the common thread that connects Suriya's and Jyotika's films of late), but the cleverly written, witty bits more than make up for it. At long last, Tamil cinema delivers a fun masa...(more)

Jyotika, Revathy's film is an eccentric fun ride

Jyotika reinvents herself in Jackpot and she proves she's a lot more comfortable doing comedy than playing a character that's high on emotions and drama. She does go overboard on a few instances but it suits this character that you end up liking by the time you walk out of the cinema hall. It was eq...(more)

Jyothika and Revathy let loose in this formulaic, commercial buddy-comedy

The film has nothing new to offer and is packaged as a time pass entertainer made up of few scenes to provide laughs. Jyotika has been doing serious films so far, so it is refreshing to see her in such a massy film. Revathy is one of the finest actors in Tamil cinema, but she does not fit in the rol...(more)

Why should men have all the fun?

Jackpot is watchable due to the amazing comic screen presence of Anandaraj. One question remains: How many more times will charismatic actors help stupid films get made? (more)

Excellent Jyothika and Revathi hit jackpot in fun entertainer

Jackpot also has its shares of problems: the disappointing songs by Vishal Chandrashekar, known for the Jil Jung Juk album. In addition to that, Jackpot looks disjointed at many places. Scenes cut from one tangent to the other on a whim. Though the director doesn't leave any loose ends and ties them...(more)

This Jyotika film offers mindless entertainment

Jackpot doesn't take itself seriously. So, we also shouldn't. It offers mindless entertainment that neither cares about formula nor treatment. It is obvious Kalyaan wants to just entertain the audience and he puts all his effort into making Jyotika 'a mass hero' and builds drama even from subtle mom...(more)
