JAaNu Movie Review
Jaanu is a faithful remake of the original film ’96. The movie starts off well with Sharwanand’s introduction scenes followed by his school days recalling episodes leading to a reunion. The flashback scenes work out well with junior Jaanu & Sharwa recreating the magic. A bit slow-paced first half ends with a beautiful interval block.
The second half also starts on the same note with terrific performances from the lead cast. The heart-touching moments throughout backed by outstanding music makes it an excellent watch for many. The climax is beautifully crafted & will be a memorable one.
Sharwa’s performance is out of the box and Samantha as Jaanu is equally good as in the original. Director Prem Kumar becomes successful in recreating the magic of the original for the Telugu audience. Govind Vasantha’s music is a big plus. Overall, Jaanu is a beautiful recreation of an emotional love story backed by extraordinary performances & mellifluous music. It is a must-watch for those who didn’t watch ’96 & will be a good one for others.
