Story

Ok Jaanu is the story of Adi (Aditya Roy Kapoor) and Tara (Shraddha Kapoor) meet each other unusually and fall in love. While Adi is a video game developer, Tara is an architect. The duo decide to live in a relationship and Tara shifts to Adi’s rented room which is owned by G Shrivastava (Naseeruddin Shah). Six months after their relationship, time comes that Adi has to fly to Los Angeles for his profession and Tara gets an admission in Paris for further studies. It is during this time, they realize their love and the rest of Ok Jaanu is what happens next.

The film starts on a fresh note however the Bollywood audience witnessed many similar films in the past. It is the performances which make the film going and the songs are completely melodious and have presented well on screen. The interval episodes make the film interesting however the entire first half of Ok Jaanu is completely predictable.

The second half of Ok Jaanu dips down badly after a convincing and interesting first half. The movie turns emotional and the dose of sentiment leave the audience irritated. The pace slows down as time proceeds and the pre-climax episodes spoil the entire film’s flavour. The climax of Ok Jaanu has been positive however the second half of Ok Jaanu is a huge disappointment.

Performance :

Aditya Roy Kapoor has been stunning and commendable as Adi in the film. Shraddha Kapoor has been sizzling hot and her performance has been stupendous. Their chemistry is a treat for the audience. Naseeruddin Shah has been strong enough and he dominated the movie with his presence. All the other actors delivered out their best for the movie.

Ok Jaanu has nothing new in plot and the screenplay, dialogues have been just ok. The songs and the background score have been fresh and elevating. The cinematography has been a treat for the audience and the production values looked lavish and decent. The director managed to bring out the same emotions that have been portrayed in the original.

Final Word

Aditya and Shraddha tops the show with their flawless performances which alone can’t save Ok Jaanu as the film lacks interesting narration during the second half.

    Lucknow Central Movie Review

    Lucknow Central is one among the finest written scripts in the recent times. Yes, the first half of Lucknow Central takes its time to reveal the important characters of the film. Some of the episodes have been extremely hard hitting and they make a massive impact. The songs have been decent and they have been placed well. The interval episodes have been completely shot well and on the whole, the first half of Lucknow Central has been decent and impressive.The second half which is quite crucial has been handled extremely well. The emotions have been handled well and the audience have been kept anxious about the next episode. The screenplay along with the narration makes a huge impact across the audience. The songs which are crucial have been shot well and the climax is the major highlight of Lucknow Central. One cannot predict the twist and on the whole the second half of Lucknow Central lives up the expectations and ends up impressive.

    Baadshaho Movie Review

    Baadshaho manages to impress during the first half because of the star cast and the suspence that has been kept under wraps. Though the film dips down, it picks up immediately and the songs have been shot well. The action episodes and the locations have been grand. The first half builds all the needed momentum so that the audience eagerly wait for the second half. The second half of the film is a sheer disappointment and it offers nothing for the audience. The entire star cast have been wasted utterly. Most of the episodes have been stretched too much and the climax looks completely fake. On the whole the second half is the complete reason for the movie's massive debacle.

    Bareilly Ki Barfi Movie Review

    Bareilly Ki Barfi has been inspired from a French novel 'Ingredients of Love'. The movie has been adopted as per the nativity of Uttar Pradesh. The first half of Bareilly Ki Barfi has been entertaining however most of the episodes look dragged and some of them spotted unnecessary. The performances by the lead actors and the songs have been decent which makes the first half of Bareilly Ki Barfi passable. The second half of Bareilly Ki Barfi struggles as the director misses the major plot. Focused much on unwanted issues, the second half of Bareilly Ki Barfi is an utter disappointment. Once again, the lead actors top the show and it is the entertainment which makes the film sound decent at times. The climax looks simple and on the whole, the second half of Bareilly Ki Barfi fails to live up the expectations.

    Toilet: Ek Prem Katha Movie Review

    Toilet: Ek Prem Katha starts on a slow note as it takes enough time to reveal about the behavior of the characters. The first half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has been packed with hilarious entertainment which come along with the plot. Some of the songs have been forcefully injected into the plot however some of them have been shot well. On the whole, the first half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha looks decent with packed entertainment. The second half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha too has been interesting and reveals a strong social message. Some of the episodes have been dragged too much and the songs are huge barriers for the film. The film has many interesting episodes which strike hard about the problems faced by women across many villages of the country. On the whole the second half of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha has been ok which has been balanced with good and bad episodes throughout.
