Jawaani Jaaneman

Critics Review


Saif steals the show in this quirky comedy

The film is highly entertaining in the first half when the narrative is light and breezy. The pace drops in the second half as it meanders towards predictable and slightly preachy parts. Especially, for single men who want to fly solo all their life. But in the end, 'Jawaani Jaaneman' comes out a winner with its non-judgmental approach and a contemporary story that showcases complex human relationships with all its quirks, firmly in place.(more)

Adequate Performances Let Down By Frustratingly Inadequate Writing

This movie is then, perhaps a study in misplaced genre. Postured as a comedy-drama, it would have served both, the acting and the film better if it was a drama-comedy instead. Before you register the drama of the scenes you are made to register its attempt at humour through the background score. I would be interested in knowing what the inverse would have looked like given such heavyweight emotive actors.(more)
