Ok Jaanu Review

Director: Shaad Ali

Star Cast: Aditya Roy Kapur, Shraddha Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah, Leela Samson

Rating: 2/5 Stars (Two stars)

In this week’s OK Jaanu review Denzil spells out how  the film is a cute love story, a good remake of the original Tamil film Ok Kanmani. What could have made it brilliant were a few tweaks to script and treatment of the film but that’s for later first the story.

Story

Adi Aditya Roy Kapur in Ok Jaanu a gaming developer Adi stays at Naseeruddin Shah, Leela Samson’s residence. Shah is retired High Court Justice G Shrivastava and his wife Charu is a renowned classical singer suffering from and Alzheimer’s. In the first sequence of the film Adi saves Tara, Shraddha Kapoor from attempted suicide only to meet up again in a church for a mutual friend’s wedding. One thin leads to another  and finally in love Adi brings Tara home and they begin living together. It takes up to the interval for the film to do this.

The  other relationship in the film is that of doting husband Naseer’s character fondly called Poplu, by his wife  Charulata that make up some of biggest heartwarming moments of the film. In fact it is around them that a lot of the film is set.

Six months then comes the time for Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur, the now ‘Jaanus’  to separate. Adi has to move to Los Angeles to develop a new game and Tara gets admission to study architecture in Paris.Will they part of will they do the civil thing and get married we are not telling you but let’s say it’s just a very emotionally high note that the film ends on.

 Denzil in the Ok Jaanu review praising the acting of both stars says that Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur are completely believable in their young love act and the emotionally charged  moments shared  by the duo is well enacted, at no point looks OTT. However it must be said here that the performances by both are not as powerful in love as they were in Aashiqui 2, chemistry is there but not brilliant as they were in their first film.  The delight to watch in this film are another couple Naseeruddin Shah and Leela Samson. The veterans really add a loving glow to ever scene they were in.

The other aspect that is totally out of the box refreshing is the background music score in the film with its intermittent mobile phone sound mashup  it is just  brilliant. The animated opening credit too is a refreshing departure from the norm very interesting

In this OK Jaanu Review Denzil feels what is missing from the film is the emotional upheaval that being in a live in relationship brings with it, both from the partners point of view  and society pressures that the couple face as well. Given that Ok Jaanu is a remake of a Tamil film, for this  remake the director and script writers could have put in a new spin to the story as well.  Also in the process the relationship of the senior couple Naseeruddin Shah and Leela Samson could have further been given wings as well.

Another plus could have been a new love ballad from AR Rahman. The new version of Humma is good but we could have done with a new love song.

 Denzil in the review sums it up saying  go watch Ok Jaanu if you are an Aashiqui 2 fan the acting Shraddha Kapoor Aditya Roy Kapur  and their chemistry is wholesome. Go watch it for Naseeruddin Shah and Leela Samson both brilliant. Go watch if you like love stories this is one that has its moments that leave you all mushy and in love.

Denzil’s OK Jaanu Review rating is 2/5  two stars out of five.
