OK Jaanu Movie Review
Ok Janu: Shraddha and Aditya are confident about success of the movie despite the release on ominous Friday 13
Ok Janu is set to release on Friday on January 13 and there is no speculation or rumor about change of date as it sounds inauspicious. The movie is a remake of 2015 Tamil romantic drama “O Kadhal Kanmani”. The Tamil film received positive reviews from critics and did fairly well on silver screen. Its box office collection was above 6 cr in first three days.
Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur are making a comeback with Ok Janu and their fans are quite excited about the movie that is on a live-in relationship between two likeminded couples. In addition to the hot chemistry of Shraddha and Aditya, music of the film is also in the news for all good reasons. A.R. Rahman composed the soundtrack and lyrics are by eminent writer Gulzar, who also penned dialogues for the movie.
Aditya Roy Kapur is Adi, a young game designer from Lucknow and Shraddha Kapoor is Tata, an architect by profession. Adi and Tara meet in a party and their relationship starts at first meeting. Soon they become friends and then live-in partners. Committed to each-other but they decided not to marry and dedicate their lives to their careers. Adi sees his future in US and Tara’s dream is to go Paris for higher education. Soon the time comes when they have to part ways into their chosen fields. Everything seems to be going in right direction but the last ten days of their relationship are very tumultuous. Finally, it is the heart that rules the mind.
A.R. Rahman again did a great job with music that he reused from the Tamil soundtrack of O Kadhal Kanmani. A good example of remake of song is The Humma Song from the 1995 movie Bombay. It is such a recreation that it can’t be described in words. Similarly the Ok Janu Song sounds like magic with Rahman’s energetic rendition.
Ok Janu first look and poster
The movie has a message and it is inscribed on the poster. The young live-in couple is standing under rain in a very friendly position. They are holding their hands and their foreheads are also joined. It is a market place and the shoppers seem to be amazed by this sight. The message is “This New Year Love Ko Figure Out Kar Lena”. This is Wikipedia poster. Google is using another poster where the protagonists are seen in a dancing position.
Why watch the movie?
Aditya and Shraddha were last seen together in Aashiqui 2 and they got critical applause for their roles in the movie. This time in Ok Janu they seem to rewrite their success story. The fans are really excited about the movie and so are the movie buffs.
