  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-6
JACKPOT is a thriller with comic one-liners and crazy characters, set entirely in Goa against the backdrop of casino boats. An amateur gang of young Goan con artists plan the perfect con -- no nuksaan, no pareshan. However, it doesn't take long for them to discover that a reverse con has been played

  •  Masala.com -Lokesh Dharmani Rating-4
If you know about Sunny Leone’s latest release Jackpot, then, first of all, I am surprised. Secondly, I am totally judging you for the kind of Google searches you do in your free time. Teehee! And if you are not aware of the movie, then you are the shining example of 'Ignorance is bliss!'

  •  Times of India -Reagan Gavin Rasquinha Rating-4
Goa forms the backdrop for this who-gets-the-moolah caper. Francis (Joshi) packs in the muscle and has a can of beer always close at hand. He is also street-smart enough to impress Maya (Leone), the oomphy voice of reason in the movie. Boss Man (Naseeruddin) is a veteran raver whose clothes are

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Karan Anshuman Rating-2
Naseeruddin Shah in dreadlocks. A title sequence inspired from James Bond movies. Directed by Kaizad Gustad (last release: Boom). Starring Sachiin Joshi and Sunny Leone. To use a poker metaphor (like the writers have done in the film unabated), this is like being dealt 2-7 unsuited in a game of Texas Hold

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-1
A little way into Jackpot, I heard a character say: "Yeh plot bada complex hai (this plot is very complex)." My heart sank. This is not what I expected from a film featuring a very pretty porn star, a buffed-up stud, and a thesp in jazzy threads. It should have been simple, fast in-and-out, grimy fun.

  •  DNA -Rashma Shetty Bali Rating-2
What is supposed to be a slick con film ends up like half baked pie with all the wrong ingredients in it. The story revolves around a casino Jackpot in Goa owned by Boss (Naseeruddin Shah). Maya (Sunny Leone) and Francis (Sachiin S Joshi) are con artists who plan to make it big in life and have a game plan

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-1
It is the most grievous form of morass Bollywood has come up with all year. The script is simple. Two teams running after winning Jackpot money. Had the writers used an inkling of imagination, the film could have been way more thrilling. But Gustad decided to remain passive in treating the story.

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-1
The first scene of the film shows off Naseeruddin Shah in an octopus-like wig. The second scene has Sunny Leone in bed wearing very less. It’s clear the film hopes to run on the steam of these two people, famous for very different reasons.Then there’s a James Bond style ‘song-accompanying-opening-credits’

  •  Now Running -Mansha Rastogi Rating-2
Kaizad Gustad who last made Katrina Kaif's debut film Boom marks his return to filmmaking after eons with Sachiin Joshi and Sunny Leone starrer Jackpot. True to his filmmaking style, this time around too the movie revolves around men, money and molls. But whether this attempts finally helps him taste

  •  India Today -Faheem Ruhani Rating-2
The first thing that comes to mind after watching Jackpot is why did an actor of the stature of Naseeruddin Shah agree to be part of this crap. This is no Bombay Boys, Jackpot director Kaizad Gustad's first film which had fair share of merit to its name. You expect better from Shah.

  •  Outlook -Namrata Joshi Rating-2
Did I see the most unbearable film of 2013 this Friday? Most definitely. Kaizad Gustad spins an utterly boring film from an inane, kiddish tale about a con job gone awry. He makes swindling Rs 10 crore seem easier than sleeping.What’s more, in an effort to look smart, Gustad randomly picks up odd phrases

  •  Mid Day -Shakti Shetty Rating-3
For the record, very few thrillers are made in Bollywood. Dramas flirting with romance, comedy and action generally take the lion’s share among the genres attempted. So given the paucity, a thriller is welcome anytime. But more often than not, it falls short in the basic department: its ability to thrill.

  •  IBN Live -Rohit Vats Rating-3
Yes, the promos of 'Jackpot' appeared soaked in fun, but the film turned out to be an attempted noir, which tries to establish some reverse con-artists as normal human beings. Unfortunately, the coolness of these characters gets lost somewhere in the proceeding, and what remains is an average story
