After an average weekend, Jaanu has crashed on its first Monday with collections coming down very badly. The film has collected a distributor share of 45 lakhs on its first Monday in the Telugu States which is a very low number. The drop from Sunday is around 70% which is huge. 4 days total of the film in the Telugu States is around 6cr and worldwide is around 7 Cr. The film is an own release in the Domestic markets saving distributors from huge losses & sold overseas where the distributor is going to lose big time.
Jaanu has taken a decent opening in the Telugu States with a distributor share of 2.20 Cr. It has registered good occupancies in cities which is usual for this sort of films. The film is an own release all over and needs to be seen how it will perform over the weekend.

Jaanu Movie Review
Telugu360 Rating 3/5
Iconic Tamil hit 96 is remade into Telugu as Jaanu starring Sharwanand and Samantha Akkineni in the lead roles. The Tamil version is a runaway hit at box office and piqued the interest of movie buffs beyond boundaries in all other languages. Telugu audience also embraced 96 very well and producer Dil Raju roped in director Prem Kumar who helmed the original version to recreate the magic in Telugu. Prem Kumar has slightly tweaked the story line to suit the sensibilities of Telugu audience.
Can the Telugu version evoke a similar response like 96 ?? Let’s find out.
Ram, a travel photographer visits his native place Vizag. While passing by his school, where he first met his love Janaki two decades ago, Ramu becomes nostalgic and contacts all his school friends via whatsapp group. They plan a reunion in Hyderabad where Ram meets Janaki first time after school. Rest of the story is how Ram Janaki open up too late about their love
K. Ramachandra decides to pay a visit to his school en route. Like any other film which deals with coming of age theme, majority of the first half revolves around the infatuation of 10 th grade students Janaki and Ramachandra. Ram, being a shy guy, was unable to express his love towards Janaki. When they enter 11 th grade Ram’s family relocates to a different town. Since then Ram Janu never meet each other. Set in 2019, school reunion of 2004 batch turns into a reunion Ram and Jaanu. First half of the film is decent and sets the premise for emotional second half.
The purity in their mutual love is the underlying reason for the success of this script. It is not an easy task to engage the audience while narrating a whole story between four walls. Be it hotel room or Ram’s house – majority of the second half runs indoors but still engage the audience.
Jaanu film portrays true love shared by two beautiful souls. In present day’s society, it is impossible to expect a love story like Ram and Janu. But their characterizations make you root for them. Director C. Prem Kumar deserves the whole credit for his skill in handling a sensible subject.
The slow-motion shots make us feel the emotion of characters and their moral dilemma. Music composer Govind Menon’s score is a big plus for the film as it helps us feel the happiness, the dilemma and the purity that the characters have to deal with. Telugu dialogues writer Kiran Kumar Reddy ( Mirchi Kiran) did a commendable job.
Sharwanand as Ramachandra is a good fit in the role. Samantha aces her performance as a woman. Younger sharwa is cool as well.Vennela Kishore , Tagubothu Ramesh play Sharwa’s Childhood friends roles. Remaining characters are less significant
- Heartwarming emotions
- Hero, Heroines performance
- Good Songs, music
- Clean film
- Slow Paced narration
Jaanu is a faithful remake that is able to recreate the essence of its original. Second half has many heartwarming scenes and dialogues. Sharwanand, Samantha’s great performance and background score are excellent. It would be interesting to see how Telugu Audience will lap up this matured love story.

The season of love is going to get a poetic touch to it with Sharwanand and Samantha Akkineni-starrer Jaanu! All set to hit the screens on February 6th, the film is a nostalgic ride that will take everyone back to their first love.
The team at Pride Cinemaa is quite excited to be taking the much-awaited love story to the overseas audience.
Starring Sharwanand and Samantha as the lead pair for the first time ever, Jaanu is definitely a fresh story from what we have seen in the trailer and teaser where the duo have excelled and outdone each other!
While Sharwa has undergone a physical transformation to play the role, Samantha has shed her glamorous avatar to play a simple girl-next-door.
Produced by Dil Raju, who is known to have a good understanding of the pulse of the audiences, the film is surely going to be a treat to entertainment seekers. What’s more, the music from the film by Govind Vasantha is surely managing to attract the audiences a great deal at this point.
Directed by C. Premkumar, Jaanu USA premieres TODAY (February 6th).
Don’t miss the adorable love story!

Samantha Akkineni is undoubtedly the top actress in Telugu cinema currently. She is a huge crowd puller and all her recent films made the magic at the box-office. After the super success of Oh Baby, Samantha is testing her luck with Jaanu. Sharwanand is the lead actor and Prem Kumar directed this romantic drama. She is a queen at the USA box-office and she has 15 million dollar films in the territory. Jaanu is expected to take a flying start because of the lead actors and the genre.
Jaanu is an emotional and heart touching romantic saga which is inspired by Tamil film 96. The trailer hints that the film will appeal to youth big time and the songs are topping the music charts. Sharwanand and Samantha are promoting the film widely and they complimented each other for their performances in Jaanu. With a lot of positive signs surrounded, Jaanu is expected to take a thumping start in USA. Dil Raju produced the film and Jaanu is getting a huge release across the globe.
Sharwanand has all his hopes on Jaanu which is hitting the screens this Friday. Prem Kumar is the director and Samantha is the leading lady. ‘The Life of Ram’ song was unveiled yesterday and the six minutes video song received thumping response from the audience. Sharwanand revealed the pain and hard work behind the song. He said that the song was canned across the beautiful locales of Kenya and Maldives for 20 days. He said that Dil Raju spent lavishly for the song which came out really well.
Sharwanand even suffered a shoulder injury during the shoot of this song and they shot the song across some remote locations. He lauded Samantha for her outstanding performance and promised that Jaanu will stand as a beautiful experience for everyone. The music album and the trailer received a decent response from the audience. Dil Raju’s Sri Venkateswara Creations bankrolled Jaanu.
Sharwanand and Samantha are all set to recreate the magic of 96 with Jaanu. ‘The Life of Ram’ full video song from the film is out today and it is packed with beautiful visuals. Sharwa plays a wildlife photographer who captures the beauty of animals in the song. The visuals are scenic which are shot across Kenya and have never been seen in Telugu screen. The song’s theme narrates about the painful youngster who goes in hunt on his profession. He carries the pain and travels on his mission.
The tune looks soothing and lyrics reveal the pain of Sharwanand. Like the other singles, ‘The Life of Ram’ too will be remembered for a long time and will be in the loop. Govind Vasantha’s music is an asset for Jaanu for sure. This emotional drama is hitting the screens this Friday. Prem Kumar directed the film and Dil Raju is the producer. Jaanu is carrying decent expectations and Sharwa, Samantha delivered top-notch performances revealed the trailer and songs.
Top producer Dil Raju even before the release of Tamil blockbuster 96, happened to watch the film and he acquired the remake rights of the film. After huge efforts, he finally got Sharwanand and Samantha to play the lead roles in the remake. Prem Kumar who directed the original gave his nod to direct the remake too. Dil Raju suggested several changes to the script but Prem Kumar shocked Raju after he wanted to make no changes.
With nothing much to do, Raju gave him a free hand for the director and he is finally happy with the output. After Sharwanand got injured in Bangkok, Prem Kumar wanted to take a break till Sharwa recovers. Sharwanand was ready to take painkillers and continue the shoot but Prem was not ready. It was after Sharwanand recovered completely, the shoot got started again.
On the whole, Prem Kumar dominated the scene completely and showed his mark throughout the shoot. Sharwanand, Samantha and Dil Raju are extremely confident on Jaanu that is releasing this Friday.

Popular producer and distributor Dil Raju is associated with all the Sankranthi releases Darbar, Sarileru Neekevvaru, Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo and Entha Manchivaadavuraa. This Sankranthi season witnessed huge competition between Sarileru Neekevvaru and Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo. The makers of both the films claimed themselves as the Industry Hit and Sankranthi winner with a bunch of posters.
Dil Raju played it safe and stood away from these. During his today’s interview when asked about the Industry Hit posters and All time records, Dil Raju said both Sarileru Neekevvaru, Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo ended up as the biggest hits in the careers of Mahesh Babu and Allu Arjun. “Some of them added GST and some of them released the collections without GST numbers. Sarileru Neekevvaru has records in some of the territories while Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo dominated in the rest” said Raju.
He did not reveal the exact numbers collected by both the films. His statement was clear that he is not interested to land in any controversies. Raju maintains a good relation with Mahesh, Allu Arjun and he is producing films with both these actors in the coming months.
Sharwanand and Samantha are all set to thrill the audience with a breezy, emotional and romantic drama titled Jaanu. Prem Kumar is the director and the film is releasing next month. The first single ‘Pranam’ from the film is out today and it sounds melodious with emotional and heart touching lyrics. The song comes at an instance that Sharwa and Samantha remind about their past memories. The makers also recorded the song in Tamil as Theera and it is out simultaneously.
‘Pranam’ has enough depth in lyrics and Sharwanand, Samantha looks fabulous sharing the screen. The instrumental music makes the song a soothing melody. Chinmayi, Gowtham’s magical voices make the song even more beautiful. Govind Vasantha is the music composer and Shreemani penned the lyrics. Pranam is a perfect romantic number for Jaanu. The film is slated for release on February 7th all over. Dil Raju bankrolled the film which is carrying decent expectations.
After 96 ended up as a blockbuster in Tamil, top producer Dil Raju acquired the remake rights of the film. Prem Kumar who directed the original has been roped in to remake the film. Sharwanand and Samantha are the lead actors. The film completed all the formalities and is slated for February release. The makers today unveiled the title and first look poster of the film which is titled Jaanu.
Sharwanand has been spotted in the poster in a desert. Samantha’s look as of now is kept under wraps. Jaanu is a romantic entertainer which is carrying decent expectations. Govind Vasantha composed the music and Sri Venkateswara Creations are the producers. The film releases on February 7th across the globe.
