Sharwanand is outstanding in this Telugu remake of '96'

This is not a feel-good film because it's much heftier than that

Jaanu is a film as palatable as a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get. This is not a feel-good film because it's much heftier than that.

Jaanu is a faithful remake that has good performances and conveys intense emotions.

Samantha and Sharwanand's film is an earnest remake of 96

Prem Kumar's Jaanus' pace is extremely slow and he lets you consume the film one frame at a time. For those who have watched 96, Jaanu is a faithful remake which will not disappoint you(more)
