Jawaani Jaaneman Trailer Review: Saif Ali Khan Returns with his Cool Guy Avatar
Jawaani Jaaneman trailer is out and this time Saif Ali Khan has returned with Tabu and Alaya F. in this modern romantic comedy
I love it when Saif Ali Khan decides to be - well, Saif Ali Khan. He's not pretending to be some scary monster or angsty Punjabi (yeah I watched Sacred Games and stopped watching when he slipped into the 'accent'). Remember Salaam Namaste? Cocktail? That's his zone and he did it so well. The urban, cocky male who learns a life lesson through the manic pixie dream girl. In the film Jawaani Jaaneman he seems to be parodying that and boy does he do the self-effacing parody well.
Jawaani Jaaneman is another slice of life romantic (?) comedy film that stars Saif Ali Khan, Tabu and Kubbra Sait. Saif plays a not-so-young man in London who finds out that he had a daughter with an old fling (Tabu) and the daughter (Alaya F.). The lead cast is hilarious and impressive and if the film promises to be as catchy and fun as the trailer, it might be worth the ride.
The film is all set to release January 31 and is directed by Nitin Kakkar who hasn't done something of note (well, there is something called The Notebook) recently but if this works for him we can hope that Dharma will contact him soon to direct - or launch - a new starkid. Because this kind of film seems right up their alley.
January has been a film of various tastes in India with Deepika Padukone's Chhapaak, the story of an acid attack survivor, Ajay Devgn and Kajol's Tanhaaji, the story of a warrior, Street Dancer starring Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor which is all about dancers from India and Pakistan going head to head and Jai Mummy Di, a Luv Ranjan film that I assume will be a lot like Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (it even has a similar leading man, aka Sunny Singh).
