Director Kunal Deshmukh's feature Jannat functions on two levels; on one (which references the titles literal translation as "Paradise," it depicts the plight of a seriously confused gentleman hopelessly caught up in a whirlpool of mercantilism, crime and capitalist greed as he searches for his own elusive Nirvana. Meanwhile, on another level, the film dramatizes a romance that transpires against the backdrop of cricket matches and "match-fixing," which refers to a form of fraud often practiced in that venue.
