About the Movie
Jackpot is a fast-paced thriller con, with sharp comic one-liners and crazy characters, set entirely in Goa against the backdrop of casino boats. The film goes back and forth in time, capturing one Goan monsoon of Full Jhol. It's a card game between the players in the con. Who will come out Aces and who will end up being the Joker? An amateur gang of young Goans plan the perfect con - no nuksaan, no pareshan. However, all good plans often... It doesn't take long for them to discover that a reverse con has been played back on them - by the very people they were trying to con. In doing so, the five members of the gang split and start suspecting each other. After all, when there is cash in a briefcase, and a beautiful woman with a gun, things tend to go horribly wrong.The world of the lazy Goa backwaters is pitted against the world of the non-stop Goa casinos, where night can be day. This is an ideal breeding ground, where all kind of cons can find a suitable home. This is Jackpot -The Casino. The largest ship in the harbour. And we're open 24x7. Con artists are most welcome to try... Jackpot: Trust. Greed.Sex.Money.Poker.River. This is The Full Jhol.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: As an absurdist suspense film, "Jackpot" mostly hits its marks. As a comedy, it's less successful, stronger on sight gags than on the detective's sarcasm.
Fresh: In his sophomore feature, helmer Martens delivers on the promise he displayed in his debut, United, creating a stylish and pacey action-comedy full of spot-on performances, inspired but gruesome gags, with crack comic timing and barbed dialogue.
Fresh: Blood-spattered crime comedy benefits from whip-smart pacing and quirky Scandinavian attitude.
Rotten: Certainly, a lot of blood is spilled in the name of laughs. There's only one problem with its broad attempts at grotesque comedy: Jackpot simply isn't funny.
You have mixed up the critics' review for the Scandinavian movie for this third rate trash from one of the worst movies in Bollywood. This movie is zero star ,garbage. Why are misleading people?
