Jawaani Jaaneman Critic Reviews & Ratings

'Jawaani Jaaneman' comes out a winner with its non-judgmental approach and a contemporary story that showcases complex human relationships with all its quirks, firmly in place.

  • CNN News18 | Review By - Rajeev Masand | Rating-2.5/5
Jawaani Jaaneman is funny, but only in spurts. You’ll feel like you’ve seen this movie many times already.

  • NDTV | Review By - Saibal Chatterjee | Rating-3/5
Jawaani Jaaneman is a bright and happy film. It is eminently watchable for the most part, not the least because the dialogues are free-flowing and witty.

A little more consistency with the writing, and a re-upping of the fun-meter would have made Jawaani Jaaneman super. As it is, it is fun while it lasts.

  • Scroll | Review By - Nandini Ramnath | Rating-3/5
With the perfect cast in place, director Nitin Kakkar, working with an adapted screenplay and dialogue, spins a delayed coming-of-age yarn that is often hilarious and insightful about men who insist on being men.

The laughs aren’t frequent enough and the emotions don’t deepen until the second hour.

  • Mid Day | Review By - Mayank Shekhar | Rating-3/5
The film, otherwise quite well-written and smartly directed, at some point, descends into the preachy and predictably maudlin space, shedding its consistently humorous tone.

  • The Hindu | Review By - Namrata Joshi | Rating-NA
Jawaani Jaaneman is a fun ride up to a point with actors working well in tandem and spewing some smart and sharp lines.

  • Rediff | Review By - Sukanya Verma | Rating-3/5
In Nitin Kakkar's disarmingly droll fam-com, Saif returns to his Ole Ole roots.

What really works about this film is that it ditches all predictable tropes.

  • News18 | Review By - Priyanka Sinha Jha | Rating-3/5
Given its Modern Familyesque tilt, Kakkar’s latest offering seems poised to score well with the old-in-the-tooth as well as the young at heart city slickers!

  • Gulf News | Review By - Manjusha Radhakrishnan | Rating-3.5/5
The movie cruises along smoothly during the witty encounters, but hits a rough note when it goes down the emotionally-charged route.

JAWAANI JAANEMAN boasts of fine performances by Saif Ali Khan and newcomer Alaya F. But the direction is weak and emotionally, the film doesn’t work.

Overall Average Rating - 3/5
