It ’s been done by Hollywood before. This kind of romcom of a teenaged girl going in search of the swinging 40-something playboy who is her biological father and knows nothing about it. Remember Mamma Mia? But you’ve got to hand it to Saif Ali Khan, who plays this single, middle-aged, delightfully wild, sex-crazy, boozing party animal Jazz (Jaswinder Singh) in London and suddenly discovers one night that the SYT (sexy young thing) he’s trying to score on just might 33.3 per cent be his daughter Tia (Alaya F.) from a one night stand he had 21 years ago.
Jawaani Jaaneman takes off on this absolutely hilarious note. And the actors rocking the show for director Nitin Kakkar are Saif and Bollywood debutante Alaya. They are like fuel and fire, a highly combustible pairing, he being a veteran of this sort of character, she exhibiting great confidence in her raw vulnerability as a lost soul (who’s also pregnant!) seeking out a parent. Add to their fireworks another veteran like Tabu, who plays Ananya – the girl’s mother, a spiritual hippy leading a bohemian life zoned out on meditation, yoga and what seems like a drug high, and the film becomes a cracker of an entertainer with London beautifully unfolding in the background.
Light Hearted Classy & Breezy One Time Entertainer The film has an urban touch of an entertainer with quirky one liners and funny situational comedy which stands out genuine and natural that will tickle your funny bone and at the end in a very subtle manner it delivers a wonderful message about the importance of family .
Cast is wonderful and the comic time is immpecable , the way how a casanova transforms to a responsible person is very well portrayed .Wat falls short for the film is the story line that could still be better and the pace in the 2nd half seems quite slow until a point. Overall a colorful fun film that you will enjoy watching in the cinemas. Mulltiplez audience will enjoy this brezzy light hearted comedy
THINGS TO LOOK OUT FOR The unique plot of the film in itself is fun and keeps you curious at the start so as what would happen. Comedy is pure and genuinely natural ,so you laugh from your heart , there are no forced comrdy scenes its just raw comedy thats fun. The Complete Cast starting from the Debut Actress Aalya F to Saif Ali Khan , Tabu , Kumid Mishra all have done a fantastic job and the comic timing is commendable.
The film is very youthful urban and colorful . The Locations are mesmerizing and the Cinematographer has done a great Job . Dialouges and oneliners are quirky and funny to its best . The film message thats delivered without being preachy is something to look out for.
NEGATIVES 2nd half could have been still better as the pace decreased until a point and gets a bit slow . Story is unique but still could have been even more better specially post interval the spark decreases a bit . Songs & Music could have been better for a colorful and youthful film like this one.
