Nanu Ki Jaanu Reviews

The Abhay Deol, Patralekhaa and Manu Rishi starrer has one or two lines which leave us chortling, and a situation or two which is genuinely surprising: one or two in a film of two hours? You do the math.

Overall the film is uneven, half-baked disappointment, which completely wrecks the talent of Abhay, Patralekha and even Chadha. They all deserve better than this. We all deserve better than this.

A couple of funny scenes are scattered here and there, but it’s mostly the out of sync acting of Abhay Deol and Patralekhaa that makes the audience giggle.

Manu Rishi, who has written the film, has his heart in the right place, but seems to have misplaced his brain.

A wishy-washy hotchpotch of horror and comedy -- like the recent Bhootnath, Phillauri and Golmaal Returns -- it flounders in finding a harmonious balance between two contrasting genres.

At 132 minutes, the film is 132 minutes too long and time seems to stand still as it meanders along before finally reaching its predictable ending. This is one of those remakes that should never have seen the light of day.

The only reason that the movie is bearable in the first half is because it is a comedy. But when it turns into a whodunit in the second half and a new emotional angle is introduced, it falls completely flat. Neither the performances nor an ever changing storyline, where newer characters are introduced, help pick it up. An anticlimactic, emotional ending further seals the fate of this film.

All said and done, there are good films, there are bad films, there is MSG franchise and then there’s this. It hurts to see talent of such superior level going down the drain. Skip this, please!

Suffice it to say, by the end of Nanu Ki Jaanu, pretty much everyone in my theatre (me included) were essentially laughing at the film, rather than with it

Is it a comedy? Is it horror? Is it social drama? Is it funny? Is it a weird love story? No one quite knows and when everything is piled on so thick, you begin to wonder as audience if you have lost your capacity to care. The background music is ideal for saturday morning cartoons and is so loud you want to order ear plugs. At 132.47 minutes, you idly wonder if they would be easily delivered before you would turn permanently deaf.

Overall, this quirky film has its moments of brilliance which keeps you riveted.

...the biggest mystery of all remains, did the person who invested in this excuse for celluloid do so out of free will? We’ll never know.

If all this wasn’t enough there is a casual, pointless reference to beef lynchings and moral science lessons on mobiles and helmets. Forget the ghost, the film will leave you spooked with the many hairy male bodies on display; under the shower, in the bed. And that’s all I am saying for ...
