OK Jaanu Review by Taran Adarsh, Rajeev Masand: Komal Nahta, KRK & Umair Sandhu

So Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur’s OK Jaanu is finally released today. Although it’s an official remake of Tamil movie OK Kanmani which starred Dulquer Salmaan and Nithya Menen but Shaad Ali who’s directing this Hindi reprise has made sure he adds his creative elements to Bollywoodise it to quite an extent. Like if you’ve watched the promos of OK Jaanu you will know what we are trying to say.

By far, the reactions around the film have been pretty decent considering it also marks the return of Aashiqui lovers Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur.


The story

It’s basically a love story. Tara (Shraddha Kapoor) and Adi (Aditya Roy Kapur) are two youngsters who come down to Mumbai to fulfil their dreams. She is an architect and he is a game developer, and both are planning to go and settle abroad. Cupid strikes them the moment, they set their eyes on each other.

Starting off with mild flirting, they soon engage in a passionate relationship. Since both are wary of commitments, they decide to go for a living together arrangement till their abroad plans take shape. But as they delve deeper into their relationship, they come to the biggest dilemma of their lives – what to choose, Love or Career?


Box Office Collection

Shraddha and Aditya team up for the second time for Shaad Ali’s remake of Mani Ratnam’s hit film OK Kanmani. The couple’s last outing together on screen, Ek Villain was a hit. Trade too seems positive about OK Jaanu that will release in 1400 screens across India. The film however will face stiff competition from Deepika Padukone’s Hollywood debut opposite Vin Diesel, xXX: Return Of Xander Cage. Both Shraddha and Aditya have not had a great year at the box office last year.

While Shraddha’s Rock On 2 opposite Farhan Akhtar turned out to be a dud, Aditya’s Fitoor with Katrina Kaif was a disaster. And even though there’s a Hollywood film to compete with, OK Jaanu will have two weekends to seal its fate before Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees and Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil come and conquer.
