Made under the direction of Nitin Kakkar Jawaani Jaaneman is a story of changing standards of relationships in society. You can call it a youth centric film. To justify the modern form of relationships seen in this film, the director has shown a sense of choosing a foreign background with indigenous characters.
40 years old Jaswinder Singh aka Jazz (Saif Ali Khan) Is basically the man who runs away from the commitments. He considers marriage, children and his responsibility as the biggest obstacle to his freedom. This is the reason why despite having parents and brother-in-law, he remains alone. Jazz, a broker, spends a lot of time in the club drinking alcohol and spending nights with new girls. He is happy in his life in every way, but only then Tia (Alaya furnitureman), 21 years girl comes in his life. Like the other girls, he wants to flirt with Tia as well, but is shocked when he learns that Tia is his daughter and is pregnant without marriage. Will once again the story of Jazz’s past repeat as he tries to get rid of Tia to escape the responsibility? The way he ran away from the responsibility of becoming a father, will he now turn his back on his daughter and her future child? To know this, you have to watch the film.
The story of Nitin Kakkar, who has directed films like ‘Filmistan’ and ‘Mitro’, is modern, but there is newness in it. Without spending time setting up the characters, they come straight to the main point of the story. The story runs fast in the first half, but the story dulls after the interval in the second half. However, the arrival of new characters definitely brings some freshness. The film manages to laugh in many parts. Climax seems predictable, but thankfully it does not have melodrama. The characters are seen flowing in the flow of the story without being confused about right and wrong. There are many composers in the film, but the music is average.
Saif Ali Khan’s swag, body language, acting, energy and emotion make Jazz’s character memorable. There is no doubt that he seems perfect in such urban characters. In this role, he introduces himself to be a capable actor. This is Alaa Furniturewala’s first film, but she has lived her role very smoothly and beautifully. She has all the possibilities of a good actress. Tabu entertains in her small role, but a strong actress like her should have got more screen space. Kubra Set has strong acting as Saif’s friend Riya. Kumud Mishra has done a good job in the supporting roles. Artists like Chunky Pandey, Farida Jalal have done fine.
