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.

    Badrinath Ki Dulhania Movie Review

    The entire first half of Badrinath Ki Dulhania has been racy and runs on entertainment which is filled with humour and sensible elements. The songs have been shot extremely well and are the major highlights of the movie. The emotional episodes too take the major leap at the right time and the interval episodes make the film gripping. On the whole the first half of Badrinath Ki Dulhania is a treat to watch.The second half of Badrinath Ki Dulhania too takes the same wave for sometime but the major plot gets deviated after time passes. However the movie returns back soon and the entertainment takes the major show of the film. The performances by the lead actors and emotional episodes during the pre-climax and the climax makes Badrinath Ki Dulhania a winner at the box-office.

    Commando 2 Movie Review

    The first half of the film has been badly penned and executed. It has nothing new to offer and the poor screenplay makes the film flat right from the first frame. Even the characters have not been well framed and it is the pre-interval twist that makes the film interesting. However things change instantly and the songs have not been well shot. The action stunts performed by Vidyut Jammwal are the only good things that happened for the film.The second half of the movie too has nothing much interesting to narrate. It is the lean concept and bad execution that kills the film and its flavor. With many flaws throughout the second half, Commando 2 fails to impress the audience. In the second half, the background score has been apt. The climax episodes have been decently shot however the film fails to make the audience sit engaging.

    Rangoon Movie Review

    The first half of Rangoon starts with a bang and all the three leading actors thrive to perform to their best. Especially Shahid and Kangana have been outstanding. The movie has a predictable plot but it is the narration of the characters and their performances which lead the show. The entire first half has been decent and the songs have been extremely colorful. The performances by the lead actors make a strong impact across the audience.The second half of the film manages to stand convincing but it is the slow pace and dragged episodes that disturb the audience. The songs have been shot well and the backdrop of Second World War has been extremely convincing. The pre-climax episodes make the film interesting and intense. The climax has been decent and on the whole, Rangoon is quite convincing if one ignores some flaws.

    The Ghazi Attack Movie Review

    The first half of The Ghazi Attack starts on a decent note and it narrates about the situations across the sea and what all happens in a submarine. The movie turns interesting after the real plot unfolds. The movie has no commercial aspects, but the director made sure that the audience are never disappointed. With a decent interval episode, the first half of Ghazi is worth watching. The second half of The Ghazi Attack makes a strong impact on the audience. The movie races to the top and the film elevates at the right point of time. The war episodes have been shot exceptionally well and the visual effects are a treat for the audience to be watched on main screen. The last 20 minutes of The Ghazi Attack will leave the audience thrilled and will take the film to the next level. On the whole, the second half of The Ghazi Attack is sure a classic.

    Running Shaadi.com Movie Review

    The first half of Running Shaadi has been completely refreshing and the entertainment throughout keeps the film going. The movie has enough interest and the gripping narration makes the movie pass your time. The love story has been fresh and the songs have been shot well. The interval episodes turn the film interesting and on the whole the first half of Running Shaadi has been showcased well though it has nothing much to reveal.The second half of Running Shaadi dips down completely as the major plot has been kept aside. The confusing narration will sure irritate the audience and is a huge disappointment. The songs have been decent and the performances by the lead actors are the only savior of Running Shaadi. Though the film picks up during the pre-climax episodes, the climax has been completely outdated and predictable. On the whole the second half of Running Shaadi is sure a disappointment.
