Sweet and Endearing New-Age Romance
14 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Can two non-actors make a decent movie? Evidently they can. More on that later. 'OK Jaanu' is a quintessential romantic comedy with a lingering soundtrack. The film is a remake of the Tamil hit 'OK Kanmani' and is apparently a scene for scene replica of the original which I'm sure is great for audiences who haven't seen the Tamil version but a bit redundant for those who have. Since I fall in the former category I enjoyed this as a new movie…well as new as rom-coms can be.

OK Jaanu follows two unsurprising but genuine characters, Adi and Tara, who come to Mumbai to pursue their careers; they consider the city to be a stepping stone before they venture out into the world. Both are open to a relationship but vehemently opposed to the concept of marriage (as clichéd young people should be). We've heard that before in practically every rom-com that's ever existed. They fall in love (shocking!) and decide to live together until duty calls. Been there, seen that. Yet the movie is still quite entertaining. Where we have this supposedly contemporary couple exploring love and life we also have an older couple who shows us that love isn't dead and marriage does work. The four share a house and a very sweet bond which makes the movie watchable for the most part.

Now back to our non-actor actors. I mean just the leads here, Mr. Shah. We'll get to you later. Neither Aditya Roy Kapur who plays Adi nor Shraddha Kapoor who portrays Tara can be considered a good actor. They're fine but far from great. Fortunately for Aditya he comes across as an appealing individual. He has an unassuming and pleasant personality that begs to be liked. Shraddha on the other hand is neither good nor bad; there isn't much to complain about and she is charming in parts. Make of that what you will. It's surprising then how compatible they are on the big screen. Their chemistry is fire. Their most successful film to date was with each other, Aashiqui 2, and they've kept the flame alive. I guess that could be a sign of good acting?

Naseeruddin Shah and Leela Samson (whose work I wasn't familiar with before this) balance the bubbly and never-stopping-to-take-a-breath couple with their wisdom and experience. It was nice to see the older generation being portrayed as accepting and forward thinking. There's no scope for theatrics and there are no long speeches on the meaning of life. Several other details in this tale are also praise worthy such as the lack of drama which usually leads to a massive falling out in movies of this genre. Director Shaad Ali has taken care to avoid any big fights, everything is dealt with in a fair manner which I enjoyed watching. Also, the couple is young, new-age, and rooted. The film nor its central characters follow the traditional route yet are desi at heart. That doesn't happen very often anymore.

A.R. Rahman's music is also beneficial to the script. It's not the maestro's best work but the title track and his own remade Humma are melodious and filmed aesthetically. Produced by two bigwigs, Karan Johar and Mani Ratnam (who also directed the original movie), this is a small movie with a big heart. Predictable, sure, but it's not trying to be something it's not. You're promised a feel-good journey and it delivers. I'm afraid the movie might get swept away in the Dangal wave but it deserves to be watched. So give it a chance. OK Jaanu?
