Jaswinder Singh (Saif Ali Khan) aka “Jazz” is a playboy who enjoys daily night-outs, partying and bringing a new girl every day. Overall he is a satyr. He lives his life openly without having any responsibilities, also he wishes to spend his whole life without being married so that he may never be bounded or has to worry about any kind of responsibility. His life was moving as he wanted it to be until when he meets Tia (Alaya F) at a party one day. As usual, what he does every night that night too he brought Tia to his room and next day surprisingly finds out that Tia maybe his daughter. Tia asks him to have a DNA test to confirm the doubt, but he being a shirker tries to avoid this situation as well. But Tia is not the one who will let go that easy, she persuaded him and finally, they had that test which resulted in the confirmation of him being her father. She made her father meet her lost mother. Additionally, Tia is pregnant with her boyfriend’s child without marriage. Now the curiosity asks, will Jazz accept his daughter and her mother or not is woven with the climax of the film.
Nitin Kakkar’s direction has put this film in the way it should be displayed, it has the perfect amount of drama and most importantly it holds relevance to today’s era where most of the youth follow this kind of lifestyle and thus find it relevant. Also, Nitin Kakkar beautifully managed to avoid unnecessary emotions that may overpower the relevance of the film with the audience. He had a perfect grip over every scene providing just the required amount of ‘masala’, that’s the beauty of his direction and vision. Talking about the characters, Saif Ali Khan was already seen in somewhat similar character in ‘Cocktail’, which makes him a perfect fit for this character, to which he completely managed to justify the character. Alaya F is also seemed to be a confident performer. As this is her debut film, there are many expectations from her in the coming times. It is always charming to see Tabu on screen, being such an expert and experienced actor she always plays her role flawlessly. All the side actors including Chunkey Pandey as Rocky, Farida Jalal as Jazz’s mother and Kiku Sharda as The Doctor, have also played their role competently and appreciably.
Overall, Jawani Jaaneman oscillates between being cliché and charming. But once you get into the characters’ world, you’ll begin to love the film and care about the characters. This is a perfect film if you want to get entertained in Bollywood style!
