OK Jaanu Movie Review
1.) Rating:1.5/5. Review by Gulf News
It’s disappointing to see a man of Mani Ratnam’s calibre pen a story that loses its plot as it keeps presenting the same thing over and over again in slightly different settings. Yes, we get that Adi (Aditya Roy Kapur) and Tara (Shraddha Kapoor) are discovering their feelings for each other and the song and dance in the rain is all necessary. But Ali could have easily established that in three scenes rather than using the entire first half of the film — and then carrying on the humdrum after the interval.
2.) Rating:2.5/5. Review by Lokesh Dharmani on Masala.Com
Ok Jaanu doesn’t convince you with the couple’s fear against marriage. Neither does it showcase real career problems. The parents and family are also such boring cardboard characters. You can see the climax well in advance but can hardly see any logic or reasoning in their change of hearts.
3.) Rating:3/5. Review by Ahana Bhattacharya on Koimoi
OK Jaanu is an extremely entertaining film. Adi and Tara’s chemistry will make you feel young and want to fall in love once again! This film is a must watch for all romantic souls!
4.) Rating: 1.5/5. Review by Shubhra Gupta on Indian Express
In the Hindi version, everything plays out the same way. Adi (Aditya Roy Kapoor) and Tara (Shraddha Kapoor) do the obligatory meet cute and follow that up with a too-stretched prelude which sees them cozily shacked up in a leafy bungalow under the protective eye of an elderly couple.
5.) Rating: 3.5/5. Review by Rashma Shetty Bali on Bollywood Life
Well, OK Jaanu will be a treat to Shraddha and Aditya fans. If you are a sucker for romantic films or then easy movies then you wouldn’t mind spending your two hours and fifteen minutes in the theater for this one.
6.) Rating: 3/5. Review by Sweta Kaushal on Hindustan Times
The start credits of Ok Jaanu come with a fun video game that our hero, Adi (Aditya), is working on. He plans to compete with Mark Zuckerberg when he reaches America with the game. Adi meets Tara (Shraddha), an architect who plans to take on the world with her talent after pursuing a degree in Paris. The chemistry between the duo sparks instantly, the best part being that they are both on the same page as far as marriage is concerned – they enjoy each other’s company but do not want the commitment that comes with tying the knot.
7.) Rating: 2.5/5. Review by Taran Adarsh on Bollywood Hungama
On the whole, OK JAANU is a decent love story which works only in parts mainly because of the chemistry between Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor. At the box-office, the film will mainly appeal to the youth, as it makes for a decent date movie.
8.) Rating: 2/5. Review by Rajeev Masand on CNN News 18
The crackling chemistry that Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor shared in their last outing Aashiqui 2 is still there, and Aditya in particular plays it charming and lighthearted as the carefree Adi. But Shaad Ali drags the film on for too long – there’s not a lot to be said here, and very little that’s compelling.
9.) Rating: 2/5. Review by Anupama Chopra on Hindustan Times
Happily, that killer soundtrack features here too. But in place of Dulquer and Nithya, we have Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor. They are attractive and amiable, but too lightweight to imbue this relationship with the much-needed depth or even reasonable ardour.
