Movie Review: Jabariya Jodi (2019)

★★★☆☆
Box Office: TBA

Set in Bihar, the story revolves around two main leads in Abhay (Sidharth Malhotra) and Babli (Parineeti Chopra). Both of them liked each other, once, when they were kids. Years later, we see Babli is worried no one will marry her and Abhay becomes the mafia who extorts grooms forcing them to get married. Abhay picks up only those grooms who demand dowry and because of this, he finds a silver lining in what he does.

They both reunite as Abhay helps Babli’s friend to find a groom, and they both start falling for each other again. Reliving few childhood moments and one romantic song later, we see Abhay’s dad Hukum Dev Singh (Jaaved Jaaferi) getting into a certain deal with certain someone. Having a troubled past with his dad, Abhay still works for him, and how he’ll stand up to him defending his love is what the major plot is all about.
