A magician goes to the football field to seduce a young woman

In the small town of Neemuch, the Dhabolkar trophy of the intercolonial football tournament weighs heavily. The worst team in the league, coached by character Jaaved Jaaferi, aspires to win at least one game.

Along comes Meenu the Magician (Jitendra Kumar), who has no soccer skills but stays to impress the woman of his dreams, Disha (Arushi Sharma). The Netflix sports flick mixes comedy and drama as Meenu tries to woo Disha and compete with the football team despite not possessing any athletic ability.

The film puts everything on the line, as Meenu must summon all of his magic to get his team over the line. His mentor reminds him, “Dil jeetnewale ko jaadugar kehte hai [The one who wins over hearts is called a magician].”

Kumar said Jaadugar was a film extremely close to his heart. He shared, “Playing Meenu, larger than life and rebellious, was an exciting new journey for me. I am grateful to director Sameer Saxena and the teams at Posham Pa and Chalkboard Entertainment for bringing this wonderful family artist to life and for trusting me in this role.

Jaaferi added, “It’s finally time for viewers to experience the magic of Meenu’s simple and sweet journey and I’m thrilled to be a part of this very special film. Jaadugar is a perfect blend of comedy and drama and I’m sure Netflix audiences around the world will discover and enjoy this inspiring story.

Directed by Sameer Saxena, Jaadugar is produced by Posham Pa Pictures and Chalkboard Entertainment. Biswapati Sarkar wrote the film’s screenplay and dialogues.
