Ok Jaanu Movie Story & Review
Adi (Aditya Roy Kapur) is a game designer from Lucknow with strong ambition or moving to the US, meets Tara (Shraddha Kapoor), who wants to go to Paris to pursue higher studies, at their friend’s wedding and discover feelings for each other. They get introduced with each other and begin their journey of love and friendship. They soon fall for each other. Having big ambitions with no belief in marriage, they start to love each other and deicide to live together (live-in relationship) and part away when time comes.
Both actors have already proved their on-screen romance would be at the best and the same has continued in this film as well. The couple looks adorable in every single frame with AR Rahman’s alluring background score evokes feelings in us for them. Besides Kapur and Kapoor’s love story, there was another love story of Gopi Shrivastav (Naseeruddin Shah) and Charulata (Leela Samson), an elderly couple, who rents a room to Adi and Tara. The love of the elder couple was so beautiful, and their relationship forms the turning point in Adi and Tara’s relationship. To know what would be that, head to the nearest theatre.
Performance-wise, all four characters have delivered mind-blowing performances. Rather than the young couple love, the beautiful love and relationship of the elder couple makes the film watchable. The movie throws spotlight on modern India’s romance and relationship at first, though, on the later side of the films justifies that the film’s intention was not to celebrate live-in relationship, but life is about loving and living together forever.
Ok Jaanu is not only a film for younger people but a complete romantic package for all generations of people. Love is life!
