Prime Video has recently brought a web series named Jubilee. Starring Siddhant Gupta, Aparshakti Khurana, Aditi Rao Hydari, Prosenjit Chatterjee and Vamika Gabbi in lead roles, the series is directed by Vikramaditya Motwane. Let’s see how it is.


The makers tried to show what the Hindi film industry was like during the 1940s–1950s through five main characters. They are Shrikant Roy (Prosenjit Chatterjee), the owner of an independent film studio called Roy Talkies, his wife and a star actress Sumitra Kumari (Aditi Rao Hydari), Roy’s trusted confidante, and the studio’s lab assistant Binod Das (Aparshakti Khurana). a playwright and a refugee named Jai Khanna (Siddhant Gupta), and a prostitute named Neelofar (Vamika Gabbi).

Plus Points:

Jayanti’s greatest asset is undoubtedly the writing. The story is so great that one is completely immersed in the series. Writers Atul Sabharwal and Prachi Singh came up with five strong characters and tried to show the Bombay film industry through them. Each character is wonderfully written, and each has a huge impact on the series, regardless of screen time.

The series has many layers and also highlights the issues of Bengal and Punjab during the India-Pakistan partition and the influence of USSR and USA on the Indian film industry. Everything related to Bollywood in the era of 1940-1950 is shown in detail. Be it the development of new technologies in the film industry, the lifestyle of film stars, the affairs in this showbiz industry, the effects of piracy or the politics involved in the cine field, everything has been portrayed with perfection.

Another advantage of Jubilee is getting the right actors on board. Every artist competed with each other and gave their best. Out of the five, Siddhant Gupta and Aparshakti Khurana get most of the screen time, and both have done a stellar job. Siddhant Gupta hits it out of the park with this scintillating act, and we instantly connect with his first scene. Aparshakti Khurana’s role had many shades to it, and the actor’s performance is nothing short of genius.

Vamika Gabbi has done an excellent job as Nilofer, and her chemistry with Siddhant Gupta is mesmerizing. Aditi Rao Hydari is solid in her role, and her character was used to take the story forward. Prosenjit Chatterjee as the owner of Roy Talkies is superb and brings out the royal flair required of the character with his body language and dialogue delivery.

Credit to the amazing production design, which transports the audience to the 1940s. The sets created, costumes designed and dialogues written speak of the meticulous care taken by the makers to take us back to the bygone era. Well, the Hindi film industry is primarily known for its songs, and we get to see that rich music in Jubilee. Every song is excellent and has been shot brilliantly.

A lot happens with regards to the story, yet the director manages to cover each and every little aspect in an engaging and interesting manner. There is no confusion or complication in the storytelling, and the series is certainly the best that has come out of Bollywood in recent times.

minus points:

The show starts off slow initially, and the makers take more time to establish the lead characters. So the viewers will have to go through some slow paced episodes to enjoy the drama ahead.

It would have been great if the character Jamshed Khan was given more screen time. Though his character plays an important role in the plot, we do not see enough of him, and this aspect could have been handled better.

technical aspects:

Technically too, Jubilee is one of the best shows in recent times. The background score by Alokananda Dasgupta is superb. The songs are incredible and fit well into the narrative. Prateek Shah’s cinematography is noteworthy. Editing is good, as some parts could have been edited out. A huge amount has been spent on Jubilee to recreate the old era, and special appreciation goes to the makers for coming up with a web show.

Talking about director Vikramaditya Motwane, he has done a great job with the series. Vikramaditya Motwane not only came up with an engaging story, but he also made sure to portray the dark side of the industry without any hesitation. He has extracted amazing performances from all his actors. High marks to the director for being able to tell the story in a surprising number of layers. He has given a lovely ode to Bollywood cinema.


Overall, Jubilee is a fitting tribute to the golden era of Hindi cinema. Amazing performances, solid story, great production design and rich music are its assets. The slow pacing at times dilutes the effect a bit. If you love knowing more about the film industry and celebrities, then this series should be on your watchlist. Even the Telugu audience who love movies like Mahanati will love Jubilee. Give this series a shot. It is well worth all your time. Rating: 3.5/5
