Jawaani Jaaneman – SAIF-ilarious!!!

Nitin Kakkar’s Jawaani Jaaneman is a rib-tickler that relies purely on Saif Ali Khan’s charm, his acting along with crisp writing and witty dialogues makes it a SAIFilarious watch.

Alaya’s debut is promising and Tabu in her special appearance just leaves you wanting for more. She is never enough but the makers have aptly optimized her little presence with the double dose of entertainment in the short span of her role in the film.

Nitin Kakkar delivers his best with Jawaani Jaaneman. It is the magic of writing the Dalal brothers bring in. The film is written by Hussain Dalal and dialogues are written by Abbas Dalal. Be it screen play or the witty dialogues they are top-notch and director packages it really well bringing the right punches at the right time. Kiku sharda with one scene delivers the right food for laugh in the situation no Men would be but could be.

The film has great situations that rings in good laughs making this Jawaani tickle than sizzle.

What sizzles here is Saif Ali Khan, with Jawaani Jaaneman he gets a platform to showcase his charm, acting skills, dancing skills and the cool factor Men would aspire to be like this at his age. .He is as cool as cucumber and as free like a free will. Be it enjoying the bathtub or dancing in a bathrobe gives you clues of the freedom he seeks.

He plays Jaswinder Singh who prefers calling being Jazz born in a Sikh family and staying little away from them, all by himself to achieve his boudoir goals that includes everything you can think of. A 40-year-old man who colors his hair and shies away on the agreement and gets upset about it if confronted comes so naturally to his forever charm making it relatable to many out there. From one of his jawaani tweaks emerges a twist. That’s where the crux of the film lies and how the father daughter relationship grows is where the heart of the film thumps. Relationships in the film may be complicated but the film comes as simple as a family entertainer. Farida Jajal in her little presence adds a lot making the film so relatable to the otherwise genre. Kumud Mishra extends a great support as the role of the brother to Saif and has a good weight in the film. One scene when the family gets together at Saif’s den, it is a high laughter point of the film. Kubbra Sait as well adds a lot to the plot as a friend and her character Rhea is strong and conveys key things you may look for in a relationship giving you level-headedness

Alaya Furniturewala daughter of Pooja Bedi brings in the right oomph. Indeed, a brave debut with the kind of nuances her character has. She delivers all at ease and her role has more  substance to the soul than just the beauty. Tabu is the cherry on the top, in her limited presence you see her character and know the aura she carries, that’s the magic of writing. Before even you think the film may have a climatic slowdown, the film roars high again with her presence and keeps you on toes with the comedy. Her simple line “He needs meditation” also has an impact leaving you with a smile.


The film has some great music too than the rehash of Ole Ole. Ole Ole song is smartly used. As soon as the film begins you know where your character belongs, and you are right there in the plot without wasting screen-time. Fabulous integration. The song that connects the film emotionally is Harshdeep Kaur’s “Mere Baabula” and adds a lot to the plot.


Director Nitin Kakkar with all this gives a complete family entertainer than just a young sizzler. Go for it and yes with family.
