Nanu ki Jaanu: a redemption story with a comic twist!!


Nanu ki Jaanu brings back the popular jodi of Oye Lucky Lucky Oye. Although it fails to re-create the old magic but is still a good watch. A horror comedy is not something that bollywood is missing these days, Nanu ki Jaanu can still make us laugh. Owing to classic dialogues, this otherwise slack story keeps up to the category of comedy.


Abhay Deol’s character (Nanu) is one that he plays the best, the leader of a goon gang whose miscreants are fairly complemented by Dabbu (Manu Rishi Chaddha). His job is to usurp properties by bluffing them into signing documents. He is strong headed and utterly un-emotional in his deeds until his time comes.  his emotional side strides when he tries to save a dying girl, Siddhi (Patralekha) by taking her to the hospital after an accident. She dies and begins the love story of a man and a ghost. Redemption of his ealier deeds follow with an additional story to find the culprit of the accident that killed Siddhi. The pre-climax and climax are unnecessary emotional and elongated that ends the movie in a not so comic mood.

Abhay Deol is always pleasing to watch and the reckless goon is his favorite character and so he was all plus plus for the movie and so was his team mate Manu Rishi Chaddha. Patralekha does not have enough screen presence to make a mark but otherwise did a good job. The slack was in script and the movie also misses good comedy timing even with some classic jokes.


Nanu ki Jaanu is a fine comedy movie that can be seen but does not connects and is a bit slack at places, specially towards the climax. I give this movie 2.5 out of 5 stars. A one time watch if reviewers are allowed to suggest it that way 😛
