Jal has a gripping trailer. Besides, it looks like it has been shot keeping the intellectual sensibilities of the audiences in mind. In short, it appears like an intelligent art film.
Or so you presume, and are therefore prepared to put on your thinking cap before entering the theatre. However, if that is how you are prepping yourself for a viewing of this one, then you are overestimating Jal. Debut director Girish Malik’s movie may have won accolades in many circuits, but Indian audiences may not be so kind, even if they make an exception for an art film.
