The rest of Jaanu is all about the time they spend and is all about the emotional experiences they share recollecting their memories. Watch Jaanu to know about the complete story.
Jaanu starts on a poetic note and is emotionally laced, beautifully presented. Sharwanand, Samantha carry the film forward completely and their performances have been top-notch. The school episodes leave and remind about everyone's memories. The young actors who portrayed Ram and Jaanu did their jobs very well. The songs have been well presented and the background score is an asset for the film. The interval episode is completely emotional and convincing. The first half of Jaanu is decent and will appeal to all the sections.
The second half of Jaanu is quite emotional and slow-paced. It has many beautiful moments and it is the performances by Sharwanand and Samantha that drive the film. The emotional episodes are well presented. The pre-climax and climax episodes make Jaanu a meaningful and memorable experience. The songs are shot and presented well. The second half of Jaanu too lives up the expectations if one ignores the slow pace.
Sharwanand is a treat to watch and he gets one more challenging role. The actor lives up the expectations in the role and looks apt as Ram. Samantha steals the show with her stellar performance throughout. She dominates the entire scene and she looked outstanding in the emotional episodes. Vennela Kishore, Saranya Pradeep and Thagubothu Ramesh have been decent in their roles. All the other actors delivered out their best for the film.
Jaanu is a beautiful journey of two young and pure souls. The screenplay looks pleasant and the dialogues make the film look emotional. The music and the background score are the other highlights apart from the performances of the film. The cinematography work stands out and the production values are grand. Prem Kumar did a fantastic job and he recreated the magic of the original with Jaanu.
Jaanu Final Word
Sharwanand and Samanth live up the expectations as Ram and Jaanu in this beautiful, emotional ride. Jaanu is a decent one time watch.
