Mani Ratnam's magical story gone to the dumps
13 January 2017 | by oazamSee all my reviews

Something I don't understand which is shitting out unusual remakes for no reason. I think that the South Indian version was good enough although I haven't seen it because I can't speak or understand Tamil. Honestly the trailer was underwhelming based on the chemistry thinking it was too far beyond a point and made me realize that live in romance can just make a film too far fest and uneven like Befikre.

So we have a boy who wants to pursue gaming spots a girl who has intentions of studying architecture in Paris who threatens to commit suicide in front of a guy and then later they meet at a wedding and both fall in love but use their relationship in a way that their passions don't get compromised with love being the reason.

The acting is okay in parts. Aditya and Shraddha have given similar performances before like in Aashiqui 2 and they're roles just didn't match my expectations although their acting is reviving which is good. Nasseruddin Shah's role as a lawyer acted fine but in most movies he acts like a patient who was just recovering from a stroke.

The music is average and no song really stands out as such. Umma song just got pretty annoying after attempting a loop listening technique. A.R Rahman is lacking magic especially after applying magic in Jai ho and won an Oscar for it.

Mani Ratnam has failed like this before. I can reminisce Raavan- a movie I couldn't sit through. But he has potential of making better films but remakes don't count just like this one. I liked Guru and Dil Se which were directed by him. Shaad Ali's direction has always been too sloppy like Kill Dil and Bunty our Babli and he shot this movie in a very south Indian style which explains Ravi K Chandran being the DOP for this movie.

Overall, this movie lacked magic with poor direction, average music, and poor writing. Definitely OK Jaanu should be a T.V watching movie and save money for Raees.
