Jayeshbhai Jordaar is a 2022 Hindi-language comedy-drama film written and directed by Divyang Thakkar and produced by Aditya Chopra and Maneesh Sharma under the banner of Yash Raj Films.
Ranveer Singh plays the titular character, the son of a traditional Gujarati sarpanch who believes in equal rights for men and women in society.
Shalini Pandey co-stars with Ranveer Singh, and Boman Irani and Ratna Pathak Shah play supporting roles.
Jayeshbhai Jordaar was originally scheduled to hit theatres on October 2, 2020, and then again on August 27, 2021.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic in India, the makers decided to wait for the pandemic to pass before releasing it on OTT platforms.
The film was released in theatres on May 13, 2022. Divyang Thakkar directed the film, which was produced by Yash Raj Films and starred Ranveer Singh as the titular Gujarati man.
Nairita Mukherjee of India Today rated the film 3.5 out of 5 stars and wrote "Ranveer is a class apart. The more we see him over the years, the more we realise how exponentially he's grown".
Bollywood Hungama rated the film 3 out of 5 stars and wrote "Despite featuring some ‘jordaar’ moments and performances , Jayeshbhai Jordaar suffers from inconsistent writing".
Vishal–Shekhar composed the music for the film. Kumaar, Jaideep Sahni, Vishal Dadlani, and Vayu contributed writing.
Jayeshbhai Jordaar is set in rural Gujarat, where Jayeshbhai (Ranveer Singh) is a professional and personal puppet in the hands of his autocratic father.
Divyang Thakkar, a debut writer-director, uses humour and satire to address social issues such as gender stereotypes, disparities, and female infanticide.
The film is expected to open in the Rs 3 to 3.5 crore range, with a chance of crossing the Rs 4 crore mark only if collections are strong on Friday evening and night.
Ranveer Singh emotionally remembered late Rishi Kapoor while promoting Jayeshbhai Jordaar on Neetu Kapoor's show Dance Deewane Juniors.
