She runs her house and fights her way out of the case with all her power. Maya discovers that the girl she hit is the daughter of her own housemaid Ruksana(Shefali Shah). and the twist starts from here to the story.

Jalsa Movie release date and Trailer

The filming for Jalsa began on August 12, 2021, and was completed on January 12, 2022. The film was released on Amazon Prime Video on March 18, 2022, the same day as Holi.

Now talking about the 2-minute long trailer, even though it doesn't disclose anything about the storyline but it can successfully grab the viewers' interest. The film's title appears to be sarcastic in light of the movie's aggressive tone. Jalsa specifically refers to a gathering or a celebration, which does not seem to correspond to what the film appears to give. Although it is nearly hard to connect the storylines from the trailer, the tension can be discerned from the scenes shown, and one can't help but wonder how things will play out.

Jalsa Movie Review

The movie is a thrill to watch since the story is well-written and well-executed which not only amuses you but also makes you rethink your sense of morality. Jalsa movie is also a suspenseful thriller and makes you think about what you would do if you were in the shoes of the characters in the movie. Would you respond on emotion or let logic guide your decision?

Coming to the review section of the cast, Rohini Hattangadi does not appear in many of the films but once again she demonstrated her talent as an actress with the Jalsa movie. In the film, she portrays Vidya's mother and is the ideal of a faithful grandma. Her fight sequences with Vidya are amusing to watch.

Shefali Shah is an incredible actress, the way she plays Ruksana is inexplicable. She begins as a loyal servant, practically becoming a member of her employer's family. The accident shocks her back into her world, and she realizes how far apart she and Maya are. Ruksana's vulnerability, as well as her determination, can be seen in Shefali's characterization. Love persists over everything, and she yields to its grace. Nothing is said directly, but everything is conveyed through her eyes and facial emotions in the Jalsa movie. We all know that Vidya Balan is one of the most talented actors of her era and this point has been proven numerous times, and it is reinforced in this movie. Her Maya is the achiever who aspires to be the best at whatever she does, whether it's as a homemaker, a single mother, or in the workplace. She takes satisfaction in being in command at all times. Vidya's eyes and movements reveal Maya's disintegration. She's on the verge of becoming the monster she's tracking down in her newsfeed. Then, on the verge of madness, rationality overcomes, bringing with it awareness, determination, and forgiveness.


Overall, Jalsa movie director Suresh Triveni has created a highly entertaining film about the options we have in life. Whatever we do has a repercussion, and the movie emphasizes this concept. The tale is supported by strong talents from the full excellent cast, not just the two leads, Vidya Balan and Shefali Shah. Jalsa is a psychological drama with a compelling storyline and competent narration. You can enjoy the Jalsa movie on the Amazon Prime video platform if you're interested.
