Movie Review: Jackpot (2013)
The film goes back and forth in time, capturing one Goan monsoon of Full Jhol. It’s a card game between the players in the con. Who will come out Aces and who will end up being the Joker?
An amateur gang of young Goans plan the perfect con – no nuksaan, no pareshan. However, all good plans often…
It doesn’t take long for them to discover that a reverse con has been played back on them – by the very people they were trying to con.
In doing so, the five members of the gang split and start suspecting each other. After all, when there is cash in a briefcase, and a beautiful woman with a gun, things tend to go horribly wrong.
The world of the lazy Goa backwaters is pitted against the world of the non-stop Goa casinos, where night can be day.
This is an ideal breeding ground, where all kind of cons can find a suitable home. This is Jackpot -The Casino. The largest ship in the harbour. And we’re open 24×7.
Con artists are most welcome to try…
Jackpot: Trust. Greed.Sex.Money.Poker.River.
This is The Full Jhol.
