Jaanu Review – Nostalgic and Romantic tale !

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.

Story:

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

Analysis:

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.

Performances:

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

Positives:

  • Heartwarming emotions
  • Hero, Heroines performance
  • Good Songs, music
  • Clean film

Negatives:

  • Slow Paced narration

Verdict:
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.

Rewind: Dil Raju’s tiff with Jaanu Director

0

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.

Dil Raju responds on ‘Industry Hit’ Posters

0

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.
