Jubilee review: Vikramaditya Motwane’s Poetic Ode To Cinema’s Golden Era

Jubilee, directed by Vikramaditya Motwane and written by Soumik Sen and Vikramaditya Motwane, is produced by Andolan Films in collaboration with Reliance Entertainment and Phantom Studios. Prosenjit Chatterjee, Aditi Rao Hydari, Aparshakti Khurana, Wamiqa Gabbi, Sidhant Gupta, Nandish Sandhu, and Ram Kapoor star in the series. 

There's enough to criticize in Vikramaditya Motwane's Jubilee, which is overstretched and too cinematic. The dialogue is dense and weighty, the music is too dull, and the plot twists are too convenient. Despite its imperfections, Jubilee stays with you long after you've seen it. 

The program takes us into the intriguing world of Jubilee and the golden period of Indian film. Jubilee is a layered drama set against the backdrop of Bollywood's Golden Era, documenting the lives of a studio boss, his movie-star wife, a trusted aide, a rising star, a nautch girl, and a refugee, as well as the risks they're willing to take in pursuit of their dreams, passion, ambition, and love.

Jubilee, set around the time of partition, is a celebration of the love of cinema, as the title suggests. In the first episode, we meet Srikant Roy (Prosenjit Chatterjee), a studio owner looking for a new face. As his eye is attracted to Jamshed Khan (Nandish Singh Sandhu), he realizes he has discovered his main man - Madan Kumar. Yet, it is only one of several twists. The road to success is filled with thorns and obstacles.

The women in Jubilee also plays important parts as well, especially Sumitra Devi (Aditi Rao Hydari), who has her heart set on letting her heart flutter and having an affair with a struggling actor, and Nilofer (Wamiqa Gabbi), a dancer with dreams beyond anyone's imagination.

There have been long series with longer episodes in the past, but Jubilee's slow burn quality hurts its argument. Its speed and visual aesthetic are similar to Motwane's Lootera, and it takes its time to look at the central tale of a man's murder and another's guilt.

The finest performances you've ever seen in a Hindi series may deserve part of the credit, but I won't deny that consuming 10 one-hour episodes in one sitting may also have contributed. It's good that the program will be available on Amazon Video in two sets of five episodes each. The first five arrive on April 7, and the last five on April 14.
If you enjoy watching movies, this program must be seen. Jubilee is everything we love to watch, and even while it focuses on its plot and does not compromise on performances or any other aspect, its still bingeworthy.
