Ok Jaanu Movie Review: Aditya Roy Kapur, Shraddha Kapoor
Well, after the barking success of 2013 launch 'Aashiqui 2', the target market had high expectations from the on-screen jodi of Bollywood sweetheart Aditya Roy Kapur and queen Shraddha Kapoor. Yet, unfortunately, their most recent launch-- Shaad Ali's 'Ok Jaanu'-- has cannot live up to the hype. And also, we are not simply criticizing the duo for this disaster, the film was loosely knitted on several ends.
The story of 'Ok Jaanu' focuses on 2 youngsters, Adi (Aditya) and Tara (Shraddha), who appear to be pretty much career oriented at first and also are not waiting to celebrate a marriage anytime soon. Tara is planning to pursue design abroad, while Adi is expecting building computer game overseas. The romantic trigger in between them makes the two step into a live-in partnership in Mumbai.
Adi as well as Tara continue to display their lovey-dovey side by flaunting the youthful chemistry. From a great deal of enthusiastic kissing to tacky discussions, they were seen trying their best to represent the new-age relationship.
Does it remind you of something comparable which took place recently? Did somebody say 'Befikre'!
The day comes soon (not rather soon as each the timeline of the film) when they have to component methods in order to focus on their particular job. Exactly what occurs next is for you to view!
I was a little bit let down to not find anything brand-new in 'Ok Jaanu' as all its discounts and trailer highlighted the gen next spark. Shaad, who previously made 'Saathiya' and 'Bunty Aur Babli', had a hard time tough to measure up to the beta faffing. At times, the story even felt directionless. Only in the last couple of scenes of the second-half, we are familiar with where the movie is heading.
If we discuss the performances, expert Naseeruddin Shah stole the show, hands down. Or else, 'Ok Jaanu' lacks the interest and also fervour that the young people expects. Aditya and also Shraddha were respectable in the movie yet we have currently seen their best earlier. So, this moment, they didn't quite hit the bulls-eye. Leela Samson has additionally done a fair job.
The best component concerning 'Ok Jaanu' is its soundtrack. Music genius AR Rahman has again confirmed his well worth in the sector. Be it the title track to excellent old 'Humma Humma', you will most definitely leave the theatre humming a song or two.
'Ok Jaanu' is a main remake of Mani Ratnam's 'O Kadhal Kanmani'. If you are expecting the exact same out of 'Ok Jaanu' then maybe you ought to choose for 'Dangal' once again for amusement.
