Critics Review


A Contrasting Romantic Tale

Shaad Ali comes up with a faithful remake of O Kadhal Kanmani in the form of Ok Jaanu, perhaps a tad too faithful as it�s neat cut, copy and paste job. However the film doesn't manage to be as charming as the original, making you feel a little disappointed especially if you've seen O Kadhal Kanmani.(more)

Watch it if you believe in love, and watch it if you don�t. Fact is, Ok Jaanu is probably one of the most heart-warming romances you will ever see in Bollywood. And as for being a love story that portrays the meaning of true life partners, the last good one we saw was over a decade ago � Baaghban (2003), starring Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini.(more)

Shraddha and Aditya play an older person's idea of 'youth'

Ok Jaanu is interesting at first, but as it rolls along it reveals its hollowness, a failing that even the lead couple's charms and the attractive production design cannot overcome.(more)

Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapur's aashiqui gets a Mani Ratnam twist

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 theatre for this one.(more)

OK JAANU is a decent love story

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.(more)
