Nanu Ki Jaanu Movie Review Rating: 1.5/5 Stars (One and half stars)
Star Cast: Abhay Deol, Manu Rishi Chadha, Patralekhaa, Rajesh Sharma.
Director: Faraz Haider.
What’s Good: Manu Rishi Chadha’s comic timing, the fact that people still have to pay to see such stuff; if it was for free then so many of them would have really gone through this pain.
What’s Bad: Time wastage of talents like Abhay Deol, Manu Rishi Chadha and Rajesh Sharma behind a project like this; we deserve something like Oye Lucky Lucky Oye.
Loo Break: That’s a viable question only if you go to watch this movie even after reading my review.
Watch or Not?: Remember the people Abhay loots in Oye Lucky Lucky Oye? If you’ve to feel how those victims felt please go ahead and watch this.
Nanu (Abhay Deol) is this deadly land mafia who gets involved in a road accident in which Siddhi (Patralekhaa) gets critical. Acting as a good guy, Nanu takes her to the hospital and while in the way Siddhi in a grave condition falls for him. She dies on reaching the hospital leaving her dad in a deep shock. Her dad (Rajesh Sharma) refuses to believe the death of her daughter as he keeps her dead body intact in an ice lid.
This doesn’t go well with the spirit of Siddhi as it returns and hunts Nanu in his house. Nanu, being human, gets scared of the ghost and tries to get rid of her in every possible way. He also tries to make his friends and family believe that his flat is haunted. All this goes on until Siddhi decides to come infront of the people and what happens next, please don’t even try to watch.
Nanu Ki Jaanu Movie Review: Script Analysis
The movie is adapted by a Tamil movie, Pisasu. I don’t know how that movie is as I haven’t seen it but if it’s something like this, I’m glad I was unaware about the same. Manu Rishi Chadha has apparently modified the script of Pisasu for this one. There’s a scene in the film in which Nanu’s mother (Himani Shivpuri) watches a movie and when Nanu asks her how was the film she replies “Bahut bakwas!”; I guess she was talking about this movie.
Including a melodramatic dad, a ghost that falls in love with the guy, the guy who feels it’s okay to fall in love with a ghost and buys cappuccino for her; there’s much more to this logically unsound movie.
I know one should not look for logic in such movies and these are meant for the sole purpose of entertainment. But after a point of time the illogicalness turns to being dumb and after that it becomes abnormal. The entire crux of the story boils down to “Please wear helmet while driving” and I wish the makers should’ve given such notice before making us watch such film.
Nanu Ki Jaanu Movie Review: Star Performance
Why Abhay Deol why? Bollywood needs actors like you but not in such films. Either do 5-6 films a year, then we can take one Nanu Ki Jaanu but doing one film like this in couple of years is a blasphemy. Patralekhaa is totally absent from the film and has just about 10-15 minutes of role. Makers, to reduce cost, could have manage her role with the similar VFX they did for her spirit.
Manu Rishi Chadha, writer of the film, comes out with the most hilarious scenes of the film. Playing the role of tu-jaanta-nahi-hai-main-kaun-
