Ok Jaanu Story:
Millennials Adi and Tara are in love and must deal with the most millennial of problems: commitment phobia and the pressure to appear emotionally detached.

Ok Jaanu Review:
Throughout the movie, Adi (Aditya Roy Kapur) and Tara (Shraddha Kapoor) seem to be running after trains or buses in motion, barely getting in before it’s too late - a great metaphor for the love lives of people of today’s generation.

Adi is a video game developer with the American dream; Tara is an architect, destined for Paris. But they lock eyes at a wedding and all their plans go out of the window. They flirt, take a trip together, move in and decide to date for as long as they’re both in Mumbai.

The thing that works most in OK Jaanu’s favour is its screenplay, kept intact from its Tamil predecessor. It is a scene-for-scene remake and capitalizes on great moments from the original film. The music (largely retained) with Gulzar’s new lyrics also does a throwback to OK Kanmani in the best way possible.

In this seemingly tailor-made role, Aditya Roy Kapur shines as a goofy, shorts-wearing man-child. Shraddha is mostly sincere too, but there are scenes where you can’t help but flashback to Nithya Menen, who had charmed people’s socks off with her performance in OK Kanmani. Adi and Tara’s impulsive infatuation is countered by Gopi uncle (Naseeruddin Shah) and Charu aunty’s (Leela Samson) golden-jubilee marriage; both senior actors grounding the movie and saving it from becoming frivolous.

In spite of its pros, one can’t deny that unsure young lovers and their battle with commitment phobia is a tired topic to begin with. Moreover, if you’ve seen the original Tamil film, it’ll get tedious after a while, knowing exactly what’s coming next.

If you haven’t seen the original though, you’re sure to walk out of the theatre with a warm-fuzzy feeling.

The chemistry between the actors and acting by Mr. Naseerudin Shah were the only saver.
