Colorful and joyful celebration
11 September 2016 | by fbutt-98821See all my reviews

My expectations of this movie were based on the TVs advert and I must say that based on this it did not disappoint. Could the story line and acting have been better-yes but if you want to have a pleasant few hours with friends and family it is fine.

Janaan is a colorful and joyful celebration of what we love about our Pakistani culture. The scenery is beautiful and it always lovely to see a film using local locations and showing the beautiful side of Pakistan. And I guess that is one of the reasons why I am forgiving of the films foibles and weaknesses, because it reminds me of a Pakistan I love. The dialogue is amusing and I did enjoy the role of 'Daniyal'. All in all a movie version of comfort food.
