Jersey movie review: Remakes are never easy but Shahid Kapoor does it with ease. After Kabir Singh, Shahid returned to the cinemas and this time with a cricket kit in his hand. Shahid Kapoor and Mrunal Thakur-starrer 'Jersey' is an emotional drama that proves that cricket is not just a game, it's an emotion.
Shahid Kapoor is portraying a talented but failed cricketer, a doting father, and a husband trying to save his marriage from falling apart. Undoubtedly, Kabir Singh carried the film on his shoulders.
If you have to describe the film in one word then it will be 'emotion' and if you have to describe it in a sentence, then it will be 'Cricket is not just a game, it's an emotion.'
The film is a Hindi remake of the 2019 Telugu film. It is written and directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, who also helmed the original one. Although the remake is a scene-by-scene copy of the original Shahid Kapoor made it look like a new one, just what he did in Kabir Singh.
Jersey revolves around a talented Ranji player Arjun Talwar (Shahid Kapoor), who had decided to quit cricket at the age of 26. However, he decided to make a comeback after 10 years. He wanted to fulfill his son Kitu’s (Ronit Kamra) dream of a jersey and to see his father play cricket.
This shows Arjun's emotions and confrontations with his wife Vidya Talwar (Mrunal Thakur) who takes care of all the financial burden of the family.
