PERFECT RECREATION OF THE SAME MAGIC.
7 February 2020 | by aasripoolsolutionsSee all my reviews

Jaanu successfully achieves the same recreation of the magic which we previously witnessed in the tamil version. Sharwanand and Samantha were at their best in potraying the roles. The songs were soothful. The screenplay could be a bit slow for the telugu audience but the performances dominate everything. Gouri G kishan who played the younger version of Jaanu was so alluring and beautiful you cannot just take your eyes off her. BOTTOMLINE- go watch Jaanu for this valentine's day.
