“Ok Jaanu Is Better Than Mani Ratnam’s Original” – Subhash K Jha review

Ok Jaanu

Starring Aditya Roy Kapoor, Shradha Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah, Leela Samson

Directed by Shaad Ali

Welcome back, Shaad Ali. It was a Mani Ratnam remake that gave us Shaad, one of the sharpest smartest directors in Saathiya. It is another Mani Ratnam remake that brings Shaad back in form after a string of duds.

Ok Jaanu (ignore the yucky title) is smart, slick heartwarming and utter endearing as Shaad, from material moulded in Mani’s imagination , forges out an urban love story set in the city that gives love a shove for more practical considerations, like making a living and realizing your ambitions.

Meet Adi and Tara, a couple so believable in their exuberant ambitions and the determination to lock their mutual adoration in a chastity belt, that you can’t help feeling exasperated at their blindness to see the obvious.

Yes, love is in the air. It’s

Film Review: ‘Mirzya’

Film Review: ‘Mirzya’
By the time the title credit goes up in digital flames after being struck by a flying arrow, it should be clear to viewers that “Mirzya” is no subtle exercise in style. A broad, brash Bollywood romance, juggling Punjab folklore with more contemporary Shakespearean allusions in its two-tiered narrative, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s film is so busy in all respects — from its structure to its song score to its poster-paint palette — that one barely has time to make sense of it all. Beneath its absorbing wealth of visual and sonic information, however, an essentially simple tale of love across the class divide grows too diffuse and distracted to stir the heart, while its two parallel stories — separated by centuries, as well as a tonal and aesthetic disparity — never coalesce into a satisfactory mythic dialogue. Despite international festival berths in London and Chicago, potential for a “Devdas”-style crossover is minimal.
