Ranveer Singh’s film Jayeshbhai Jordaar is now playing in theatres. The film revolves around a Gujarati man who belongs to a patriarchal society, one where people prefer a male child over a female. Ranveer’s character in the film endures all sorts of hardship to protect his unborn daughter. Directed by Divyang Thakkar, Jayeshbhai Jordaar also features Shalini Pandey, Boman Irani, and Ratna Pathak Shah in pivotal roles.

With fans rushing to watch the movie, early reviews are already out on social media platforms. Jayesbhai Jordaar has been receiving mixed reactions, while some called the movie an entertainer, others called it boring and clichéd. 

Lauding Ranveer Singh for taking up a challenging role of Jayeshbhai, a user while complimenting the actor wrote, “#JayeshbhaiJordaar jayesh bhai kaamal kardiya @RanveerOfficial you deserve special applause for taking this role out and credits to shalpz for her subtleness . Proving it out director potrayed the pregnancy and girl child issues. very well making it a must watch today.”

“1st half review: #RanveerSingh ‘s @JJ_TheFilm has an engaging first half. Dir @divyangrt doesn’t shy away from using his strengths of witty dialogues and heavy messages in the play. The first half isn’t heavy-handed to us, as we are introduced to the world of #JayeshbhaiJordaar,” wrote yet another Twitter user. 

“Nothing new it’s the same old stories which were worthable in 80s & 90s but now it’s 21st century such movies don’t work. I don’t why #Bollywood seems to be content less, they keep on repeating same old stories. Creativity seems lost in Bollywood. #JayeshbhaiJordaar review,” tweeted another.
