Immediate reaction when the end credits roll
Raghubir Yadav is an actor par excellence. JACQUELINE I AM COMING cements this fact again.
The story of JACQUELINE I AM COMING
A 40-year-old government employee Kashi Tewary (Raghuvir Yadav) works in the PWD department. The simpleton falls in love with a local beauty Jacqueline (Diiva Dhanoya) at a church. How Kashi overcomes various obstacles like religious prejudice, Jacqueline’s illness and other challenges forms the crux of this pious love story
JACQUELINE I AM COMING movie review
A simple story, simply told, that peeps into a person’s fragility due to loss during childhood, the prejudice mindset and the hard fact that love can conquer all but with some support. The world of debutant director Banty Dubey and writer Pinku Dubey’s Kashi is different from the world we live in. Though they stay between us, but the world cannot ‘live’ with such pious souls who only strive for love, care and understanding.
Raghuvir Yadav’s outstanding brilliance adds nuances to this simple and beautiful movie on love. However Diiva Dhanoya is not the right choice and this makes Raghuvir to work even more hard. The required moments and chemistry between Raghuvir and Divya are missing and that’s the major drawback. Shakti Kumar as Dr. Arjun the strict head of the asylum is quite good.
Debutant director Banty Dubey and writer Pinku Dubey approach is somewhat inspired from classic French/European romance dramas and the semi realistic approach ala Mani Ratnam way works for the understanding audience. Especially the scenes where we see Raghuvir and Divya together in happy moments and a couple of shots during the end reels before fate plays havoc in the life of Kashi.
JACQUELINE I AM COMING is a simple story of the beauty of undying love and ugliness of fate, powered by Raghuvir Yadav’s outstanding brilliance.
