Jimmy marks the debut of a star-kid Mimoh Chakraborty son of yesteryear superstar and extremely talented actor Mithun Chakraborty. Directed by Raj Sippy (Satte Pe Satta, Inkaar) Jimmy also stars Vivana, Zulfi Syed and Rahul Dev. Is Mimoh even half as talented as his father?
Jimmy (Mimoh Chakraborty) is a mechanical engineer during the day time and a DJ at night. He works very hard to pay off his late father’s debts. But soon he is detected of Brain tumor and only has a few days to live. Soon, one night a woman’s dead body is found. All clues lead to Jimmy and like in the movies of the 70s and 80s Jimmy surrenders and is sentenced to death. Only Jimmy knows why he committed the murder and only in Jail does he realise that its a vicious conspiracy planned against him. What happens next forms the rest of the movie.
Jimmy is undoubtedly one of the worst movies in recent times. Its shockingly bad. How could a veteran like Mithun Chakraborty approve a script as bad for his sons debut? How can a star-kid be so under prepared for his debut? How could so many things go wrong in a movie especially from Raj Sippy director of movies like Satte Pe Satta, Inkar? The music is bad, ditto for direction and story.
Coming to the performances, Mimoh is horrible. Dialogue delivery, expressions, voice, body language almost everything is below average. You get to see better performances in B grade movies. He needs to work on his physique too. Vivana looks pretty but is a non actor. Zulfi Syed and Rahul Dev are strictly average.
Overall, Jimmy is a perfect example of every aspect of film-making gone wrong. Don’t ever watch it!Rating: No Stars
