Critic Reviews Ok Jaanu

  • Times of India | Review By -Nihit Bhave Rating-7/10
In spite of its Pros, one can’t deny that unsure young lovers and their battle with commitment phobia is a tired topic to begin with. Moreover, if you’ve seen the original Tamil film, it’ll get tedious after a while, knowing exactly what’s coming next. If you haven’t seen the original though, you’re sure to walk out of the theatre with a warm-fuzzy feeling.

  • News 18 | Review By -Rajeev Masand Rating-4/10
But Shaad Ali drags the film on for too long – there’s not a lot to be said here, and very little that’s compelling. I’m going with two out of five for Ok Jaanu – it’s a bit like flat soda. Palatable, but lacking any fizz.

  • Film Companion | Review By -Anupama Chopra Rating-4/10
Shaad doesn’t’ add anything to the narrative and the leads aren’t dazzling enough to distract us from the inherent flaws in the script – like the repetition and predictable ending.

  • Indian Express | Review By -Shubhra Gupta Rating-3/10
This Aditya Roy Kapur, Shraddha Kapoor film proves Bollywood needs to get more adept at depicting young love. Why do our lovers, so much quicker off the mark when it comes to locking lips, sound so juvenile?

  • NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-5/10
Overall, OK Jaanu is watchable because it does occasionally touch both the heart and the ear. But it is never able to shrug off the fluff that clings to its body.

  • The Hindu | Review By -Namrata Joshi Rating-4/10
‘Ok Jaanu’ is an overly faithful, shot for shot remake of ‘O Kadhal Kanmani’ but misses out on the charisma of Dulquer and Nithya.

  • Rediff | Review By -Sukanya Verma Rating-6/10
Ok Jaanu may not always bubble up the urgency and anxiety of a knotty romance but its restrained tone engages, as does the freewheeling intimacy between Aditya and Shraddha.

  • Hindustan Times | Review By -Sweta Kaushal Rating-6/10
Mani Ratnam’s screenplay is the star of the movie, and the actors are natural and energetic enough to convincingly portray it onscreen. While Aditya and Shraddha share a naturally organic chemistry, Nasser and Leela remind us why they are two of the best among veteran actors today.

  • DNA | Review By -Tushar Joshi Rating-5/10
Ok Jaanu is strictly OK. Watch it if you waited this long to watch Aditya and Shraddha reignite their chemistry on the big screen. Fans of the original however, might have a different point of view.

  • Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Rohit Bhatnagar Rating-5/10
If you thought that ‘OK Jannu’ is a peculiar love story, you will be disappointed. However you can still watch it for Aditya and Shraddha’s organic chemistry. Looks like their sizzling reel life chemistry has stemmed out of their real life romance.

  • News 18 | Review By -Sameeksha Dandriyal Rating-6/10
This breezy romance deserves a watch for its story, good chemistry and the character of Adi, Mr. Gopi and Rahman's music. Even if you are not a romantic, you will fall in love with this charming love story.

  • India Today | Review By -Suhani Singh Rating-3/10
Ali brings little other than a few visual flourishes to the original. OK Jaanu is a carbon copy which lacks the emotional cadence and vigour of the original.

  • Bollywood Hungama | Review By -BH Review Rating-5/10
On the whole, OK JAANU is a decent love story which works only in parts mainly because of the chemistry between Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor.

  • Gulf News | Review By -Manjari Saxena Rating-3/10
It’s disappointing to see a man of Mani Ratnam’s calibre pen a story that loses its plot as it keeps presenting the same thing over and over again in slightly different settings. Keep this one for the television premiere.
