Story: In West Bengal, Maya D’Souza (Kareena Kapoor Khan) lives with her daughter Tara (Naisha Khanna)in Kalimpong and she runs a cafe. During an unforgettable night, she happens to kill her estranged husband, Ajit Mhatre (Saurabh Sachdeva). Naren (Jaideep Ahlawat), her creepy neighbour, decides to help Maya to cover up the crime for reasons that are best known to him. A crime investigation commences and Police Officer Karan Anand (Vijay Anand) arrives on the scene to uncover the truth. Karan and Naren turn out to be school buddies as well. Maya is the only suspect for the murder, but all evidence points in her favor, so no arrest can be made. What steps does Karan take to unravel the mystery? What do Maya and Naren do to avoid being charged for murder? Answers to these questions form the rest of the story.
Performances: Kareena Kapoor Khan was too good as Maya Dsouza and conveyed the emotions of her character effortlessly. Jaideep Ahlawat’s performance was fantastic in a multi layered character. The way he showed the innocence, quirky and evil angles according to the scenes was commendable. Vijay Varma was also superb as the police officer who looks like a funny man but is has a sharp brain.
- Writing at a few places
- Main Storyline
- Boring Screenplay
- Unexciting twists
Jaane Jaan is an ordinary thriller which is backed by terrific performances by Kareena, Jaideep Ahlawat and Vijay Varma and occasionally good writing but fails to get on to the next level. Despite having an intriguing plot and setup, the lackluster handling of twists and characters works against the film. You can watch it for the performances of the leading cast.
