The highly awaited family film Jug Jugg Jeeyo finally released in theatres on Friday, following a number of promotional trips and events.
Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani, Anil Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor are among the ensemble cast of the Raj Mehta-directed movie. It appears that enthusiastic fans are just as amazed by the film as critics who have praised the comic entertainment.
Songs like Nach Punjaban, which are already popular are examples of the film’s appealing music. Fans from all over the country praised the family drama for having a good beginning and a great conclusion.
The opening song of Jugjugg Jeeyo, “Nain Ta Heere,” depicts the relationship between Kuku (Varun Dhawan) and Naina (Kiara Advani), from their days as school sweethearts to their eventual wedding. The couple, who have since relocated to Toronto, Canada, is already experiencing the seven-year itch. While Naina works a white-collar job in a reputable company, Kuku works as a bouncer at a nightclub.
Kuku and Naina’s marriage falls down due to prolonged silences, unfinished conversations and resentful hearts; as a result, they decide to file for divorce. However, there is still unfinished business to be taken care of when the two travel to Patiala to attend the wedding of Kuku’s sister Ginny (Prajakta Koli). Kuku and Naina make the decision to appear as a happy couple to the public until Ginny marries.
However, when they get to their hometown, they find out that there’s another surprise waiting for them that could break many people’s hearts.
For his second film, Jugjugg Jeeyo, filmmaker Raj Mehta chooses yet another complicated issue after making his feature film debut with the lighthearted Good Newwz. He wants to approach the idea of marriages and divorces this time without any rose-colored lenses.
Mehta attempts to explain the requirements for a good marriage as well as the weakness of this institution when it comes to new-age couples.
He does not, provide the viewpoint of the other actors when it comes to the “M” word, with the exception of Neetu Kapoor’s character. This causes the disagreement to occasionally seem manufactured.
Mehta tries to decode what it takes for a marriage to be successful and the fragility of this institution when it comes to new-age couples.
Jugjugg Jeeyo will make you smile if you enjoy loud humour and jokes that are Whatsapp-forwarded about wives and marriages. Additionally, the time has come for Bollywood to completely stop using effeminate characters in order to get a few chuckles. The villainization of the other woman in a relationship is another issue that needs to be addressed.
Varun Dhawan gets to play around with a variety of emotions, from playing a spouse who struggles with doubts in his marriage to attempting to be the “ideal” son to his parents, whose picture-perfect marriage is only a mirage, and the young man attempts to make the most of it.
Jugjugg Jeeyo gives Neetu Kapoor the best-written role, despite the fact that it doesn’t receive the most screen time. In one scene, her character Geeta celebrates life’s small victories with a glass of wine while opening up to her daughter-in-law. One hoped that the movie had focused more on these touching scenes. With acting skills that have matured like excellent wine, Kapoor makes a fantastic comeback after a protracted hiatus.
Anil Kapoor is the absolute life of the party here. The actor is in top form as the loud and colourful family patriarch Bheem. The role is tailor-made for him as he makes you root for him despite all his eccentricities.
With his captivating portrayal of a spouse searching for love outside of marriage, Anil Kapoor as an actor does make you remark, “What a player.” Only an actor of his calibre can make even the most absurd jokes make the audience laugh.
Kiara suitably comes across as a wife who doesn’t know what more she could do to make the marriage work, and Maneish Paul adds zing with his comic timing.
A lot of things are favouring JugJuggJeeyo, must watch movie.
