Putting serious topics in between laughter is nothing new in Hindi cinema. In Jayeshbhai Jordaar, director his Divyang Thakkar explores Hirani-like spaces and comes up with a fun female fetus-themed ride. The ride has its issues, but the director hasn’t thrown the internal logic out the window.

Jayesh (Ranveer Singh) is the type of boy who doesn’t know what feminism is, but he puts his heart in the right place. In the hinterland, there are many characters who can’t go against their parents’ ancestral mentality, but they also can’t uphold it. For the life becomes a charade. The act of balancing between two generations. Tucker paints this parody of life with a rough brush, but in the end, it pays off less and less.
Jayesh’s formidable father Pruthvish (Boman Irani) and his abandoned mother Jasoda (Ratna Pathak Shah) are busy maintaining patriarchy in a fictional Gujarat village. They want their grandson to carry on the family name, and won’t hesitate before eliminating his vital X chromosome, which thwarts that wish. Prthuvish appears as a late entry into the league of old weirdos in the khaps of western Uttar Pradesh and Haryana. Like the others, he blames women for the increase in male hormones and tries to hide them behind a veil as much as possible.
When Jayesh finds out that his wife Mudra (Shalini Pandey) is pregnant with his second daughter, he decides to flee from his father and his followers looking for his heir. The structure inspires curiosity mixed with humor, but once the cat-and-mouse game begins, the theatrical underpinnings of the story emerge.
