Solid: Saif Ali Khan, Alaya F, Tabu, Kumal Kemmu, Anil Kapoor
Director: Nitin Kakkar
With a rom-com repertoire that stretches throughout many years, Saif Ali Khan embodies the Peter Pan who by no means grew up. And now as soon as once more, the specious Indian rom-com hero returns in Jawaani Jaaneman, a lot to the satisfaction of those that have watched him appeal his approach thru motion pictures like Dil Chahta Hai, Hum Tum, Salaam Namaste, Kal Ho Na Ho, Love Aaj Kal among many others.
At a time when Hindi cinema has found out a fount of reports in problems surrounding male vainness, virility or sexuality be it Bala, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan amongst others, exploring the Peter Pan syndrome amongst movin’-n-shakin’ urbane Indian men would possibly not completely be breaking new floor. However Jazz from Jawaani Jaaneman, a playboy previous his high but no longer taking a look to calm down for a happily-ever-after is just a little of a novelty. He’s a fundamental man who likes the great existence—lives in a swanky area and events like there’s no the next day to come. His nightlife adventures early within the movie obviously determine him as a person who enjoys taking part in the sphere relentlessly. Issues are going swimmingly neatly till his previous catches up and he discovers a love kid (Alaya F) who makes her approach into his existence. Writers Hussain Dalal and Abbas Dalal’s script is predicated closely on Khan’s loyal, just right ol’, relatively been-there-seen-that artful. I want that they had given the actor extra new subject material to paintings with, within the early portions of the movie.
It’s best when the script introduces Jazz (Saif Ali Khan) to his younger progeny (Alaya F) that we see the appeal shine, successfully taking part in off the following awkward scenarios. For probably the most phase the movie maintains the breezy, light-hearted tone slightly luckily. As an issue of fine judgment, this one steers clear of the shaadi and suchlike matrimonial court cases sticking firmly to the father-daughter monitor and growing a lot mirth and humour within the discount.
The solid, particularly Tabu because the hippie mom is pleasant, and Farida Jalal after a hiatus reminds us of why she stays a favorite mom on display. Kumud Mishra, like all the time is a loyal presence, filling within the slots with utmost sincerity. And Kubra Sait as a girl who needs a mature courting as a substitute of useless flings presentations a lot promise and right here’s hoping to look her extra continuously, in meatier roles. As for Saif Ali Khan because the desi playboy in London- he slips into the outside of the nature with nice ease and owns it as best he can. Jazz, even though an urbane personality isn’t precisely the debonair participant we’re aware of seeing Khan as he infrequently misses a beat right here.
On the other hand, within reason the very best reward will have to be reserved for Alaya F. The beginner holds her personal optimistically and shows a herbal appeal, which with revel in may end up to be a definite merit. A mixture of sass and innocence, she is without a doubt a skill to be careful for.
As for the movie’s director Nitin Kakkar (absolute best recognized for Filmistaan), Jawaani Jaaneman is prone to catapult him into the league of administrators who can care for large celebrity solid motion pictures catering to a much broader mainstream target market.
Given its Fashionable Familyesque tilt, Kakkar’s newest providing turns out poised to attain neatly with the old-in-the-tooth in addition to the younger at middle town slickers!
