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.

    Ittefaq Movie Review

    The first half of Ittefaq has been well framed and is perfectly narrated. The film has been tight and racy right from the first shot and is a treat to watch. You will be deceived with each twist that comes in the film. The performaces need a bow and the entire first half has been extremely interesting. The second half too has been well maintained and is captured well. The director made sure that the film is not deviated at any frame and is equally thrilling and entertaining. The climax is hard hitting that one will be left boggled. On the whole Ittefaq is a film that should not be missed.

    Golmaal Again Movie Review

    Golmaal Again has been focussed mostly on entertainment which has been laced with horrifying episodes. The film is not a comedy unlike the previous installments of Golmaal and is laced with loads of horror. The songs have been shot well and the first half of Golmaal Again looks decent with enough dose of entertainment. The second half of Golmaal Again dips down though it has dose of entertainment. Some of the episodes have been repeated and have been taken from the previous installments. Some of the episodes fail to make any impact however the climax of the film has been thoroughly engaging. On the whole, the second half of Golmaal Again is a disappoinment but manages to sail finally.

    Secret Superstar Movie Review

    Secret Superstar starts on an interesting note and it explains all the small and interesting aspects of the lead characters. Before execution, Secret Superstar has been penned well and is perfectly presented on screen. The performances along with the background score and the way the film has been executed will blow everyone away. The entire first half frames up the film beautifully and makes a strong impact across the audience. The second half has been exceptional right from the first frame and is a treat to watch. Aamir Khan will be seen in an extended cameo and Zaira Wasim tops the show with her flawless and stupendous performance. The pre-climax episodes elevate the film and the climax has been hard hitting. Secret Superstar has a beautiful second half which conveys a strong message for every Indian.

    Judwaa 2 Movie Review

    Judwaa 2 has been promising and entertaining right from the first frame. Varun Dhawan carried the entire film on his shoulders and he is a treat to watch. He excelled completely in the comic scenes and Judwaa 2 is his best film till date. Though the plot has been completely predictable, it is the entertainment, action and the songs which leave the audience entertaining. The first half of Judwaa 2 has been decent and lives up the expectations. The second half of Judwaa 2 too stands decent because of the entertainment levels. All the characters have been recreated from the original and not much homework has been done. The makers have been completely focused on the entertainment and the glamour. The songs have been shot well and they come at the right time in the film. The climax has been quite appealing and on the whole the second half too is a passable ride completely.
