Madhur Bhandarkar is synonymous with thought-provoking, hard-hitting films. Right from Chandni Bar to Fashion, the expert storyteller has made movies that hold tremendous shock-value. In turn, Madhur has cultivated a rich fan-base for his films.
With Jail, Madhur not only makes you visit a prison, but also makes you peep into the psyche of a prisoner. In the recent past, Sriram Raghavan's Ek Hasina Thi [2004; Saif Ali Khan, Urmila Matondkar] and Nazim Rizvi's Undertrial [2007; Rajpal Yadav] narrated the travails and anguish of innocents who were falsely implicated in a case. Besides, Nagesh Kukunoor's Teen Deewarein [2003; Naseeruddin Shah, Jackie Shroff, Nagesh Kukunoor] too narrated the story of three convicts. But Jail is different from the above-named films.
Besides watching a thought-provoking story on celluloid, one has also come to expect incredible performances in a Madhur Bhandarkar movie. And Jail too is embellished with superb performances from its key actors.
