Ok Jaanu Movie Review
Ashique 2 fame Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor’s latest Hindi movie Ok Jaanu is a purely romantic drama film. However there is literally nothing related to actual lives or something known as ‘logical’ direction.
Aditya and Shraddha’s chemistry was a treat only in the first half. Naseeruddin Shah plays a pivotal role in the film and does his best. The second half of the movie gets predictable. Shaad Ali decided to go with his instinct and the movie couldn’t bring out something new for the audience.
Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor have delivered good performances. More than the individuals, it was the chemistry of the lead pair that made these characters lovable. Naseeruddin Shah, Karan Nath and Leela Samson, who have played supporting roles were really impressive in those characters.
The sparkling chemistry between the two is the highlight of Ok Jaanu. Overall Ok Jaanu is a film which could be watched as the weekend show. Songs are pretty awesome. Dialogues are fabulous. One time watch. 3 out of 5 star for this.
