The epidemic of passable movies continue
 

OK, I rarely write movie reviews so often, but felt for this movie I had to. There is absolutely nothing to write about this movie except the good songs. The chemistry between the lead actors was pale. Dialogues were damn cheesy, the lead pair are talking for the first time on phone without even properly introduced and the are talking about kids, marriage n stuff. Like who does that without knowing each other. Except Nasrudeen Shah everyone seemed like Siri is saying its dialogues in Hindi. Totally crap movie. Should have gone for Dangal again (saw it once). I feel movies made without passion end up like this. Feel Shradha Kapoor and Aditya Kapoor looked so immature throughout the movie and their conversations were so fake. Enough said, go at your own risk.

OK Jaanu lacks the flow, passion and magic of its original version O Kathal Kanmani.

Great performances and sweet fun overcome rehashed/predictable plot and narrative flaws....almost!!
 

The trend of making remakes is very hot right now in Hollywood. Some of them are good, some of them are average and many fail but if you look closely you'll see one common thing. All the movies are remakes of very old movies. Now if you apply common sense, you'll ask that why do film-makers remake old movies, right? Because they think they can improve upon the originals because of the technical advancements we have achieved throughout the years. Now see what the Hindi Film Industry does. They remake a movie which was made one year ago. I'll try to elaborate this throughout the review. ..

A Fair Totally Avoidable...
 

OK Jaanu, a romantic film directed by Shaad Ali, is the remake of Mani Ratnam's Tamil film O Kathal Kanmani. The screenplay and story is by legendary filmmaker Mani Ratnam. The original version was a box office hit. Mani Ratnam had returned to romance genre after almost a decade with OK Kanmani. He drew a parallel in his movie through his protagonists – an old couple and modern-age couple. Two different perceptions were shown in the movie, without an effort to get preachy or judgmental. At one side, age-old concept of marriage and romance is shown – commitment for the whole life. On the other hand, contemporary romance and live-in relationship was shown, where the couple felt very much in love but did lack the confidence / trust to commit to each other. Mani Ratnam did not try to convey that one is superior to the other, but he very subtly conveyed that one has to be certain about his or her relationship, commitment definitely strengthens the relationship. O Kadhal Kanmani was a very light-hearted movie. It made one feel like falling in love. As far as remakes are concerned, it is bound to draw comparison to the original version in every aspect. Those who have seen the original may feel that the Hindi version is not at par with the same, but for those who have not seen the original, may find OK Jaanu enjoyable. When a remake is made, the filmmaker does face challenges – either it has to be at par with the original or at least a bit superior to the original. And, that is where, OK Jaanu falters. It has nothing new to offer, it is exactly similar to the original, which is still OK, but it fails to have the depth as that of the original. ..

You can skip watching it in theatre.
 

The film starts off in a great way. But soon gets lost in the same old rut. A boy sees a girl and starts pursuing her like a pervert and the girl falls for him too right off the bat. As usual,romance follows between them. They start living in a relationship. Then family drama & other shits start adding into the mix which we've seen countless times in several movies, one way or another. Like I said earlier, everyone gave great performances, Aditya Roy Kapoor and Naseeruddin Shah in particular. Shraddha has stepped up her acting too but her voice still sounds cringy. She needs to focus more on the voice variation. Overall I enjoyed the movie for its sweetness alone but there were many flaws that stuck out in addition to its familiar and rehashed plot.

A very good film could have been made out of the story of the film.
 

OK Jaanu is a fairly romantic drama, with beautiful tracks along with a creative and innovative fresh take on present day modern relationships! Since this is an official remake of O Kandhal Kanmani, I have not watched the Tamil movie so I cannot compare, but this definitely is worth a watch if you are into themes that are relationship- based with a combination of flirty romance, madness, cohabitation, love, loneliness, marriage and ambition. Adi (Aditya Roy Kapoor) who is a game developer and Tara (Shraddha Kapoor) who is an architect- a lovely young couple that does not believe in marriage but want to be together at that point without worrying what's going to happen next. Twists arrive when they face difficulties between choosing love and career and how they balance it out. Aditya's smile and charming looks along with beautiful Shraddha is always a lovely on screen pair to look forward to after Aashiqui 2. Also, the supporting cast comes up with impeccable performances. Kudos to Naseeruddin Shah and Leela. The music is very well accomplished. Full marks on the recreated Humma version!

Sweet and Endearing New-Age Romance
 

OK Jaanu Directed By Shaad Ali Saathiya Movie Fame is A Romantic Drama. It is Official Remake Of Tamil "O Kadhal Kanmani" By Mani Ratnam. Script is Neither Good Nor Bad. Screenplay is Repetitive & Predictable. Direction By Shaad Adds Nothing New To Screenplay Depicted in Tamil Version. Dialogues Are Just Fine. Aditya(Aditya Roy Kapoor) is A Video Game Developer Who Accidentally Meets Taara(Shradhha Kapoor) At Railway Station. They Again Meet At His Friends Wedding. They Soon Begin To Call Each Other, Go Out Together, And Start To Fall in Love.They Agree That Marriage is Not For Them And Decide To Have A Live-in Relationship Instead, And Taara Moves into Adi's Place, Rented From Gopi Shrivastav(Naseerudin Shah).They Wish To Spend Their Time With Each Other Before They Go Their Separate Ways For Their Respective Careers. Meanwhile They Sort Out, Why They Need Each Other And What is Importance Of Being Together Which Tends To Change Their Mindset. Acting Wise, Aditya Roy Kapoor Has A Long Way To Go To Prove Himself As An Actor. He is Just Fine in Few Scenes. Same With Shraddha Kapoor She is Scrictly Average. The Pair Looks Good But There is Lack Of Chemistry. Naseerudin Shah is Not Utilized Effectively But Leela Samson is Better in Her Complex Character As An Alzheimer Patient. Rest Of The Cast is Forgettable. Music By A.R Rehman is Very Average. "Ok Jaanu" By A.R Rehman & Shrinidhi Venkatesh is A Better Composition Of The Lot. Overall Movie Has Nothing New To Offer. It Has Same Plot Like Befikre, A Fair Totally Avoidable.

OK Jaanu is a terrible remake of OK Kanmani and Rahman's music is the only pro of this movie.
 

Mani Ratnam's 'Ok Kanmani', Tamil film that garnered enough love from the south Indian audience. Now is this reason enough to make a Hindi remake? Well as per Bollywood history, yes it is. OK Jaanu is the story of a young couple Adi and Tara who hit it off instantly and decide to live in together rather than tying the marital knot and carry on to pursue their dreams. A parallel track shows the relationship between their land lord and his wife who has Alzheimer's and the older couple makes Adi and Tara realize that they ought to do the right thing.Technically speaking there are not many faults in the film. But it's nothing that we haven't seen before. It's the same old wine served the same old way in the same old bottle. It's predictable and once again the climax doesn't make much sense. It looks more of a made up drama that a real sweet coming of age romance story of a young couple. I go with 2.5/5 for OK Jaanu.
