Not that I am completely writing it off completely however better to keep you warned !

We always tend to cast the script and screenplay as the real villains but sometimes good scripts are let down by poor acting and efforts too !

Not that OK Jaanu boasts of the greatest of scripts but at least has its roots from a Tamil hit and is a decent script too. But the original Ok has been directed by Mani Ratnam and Shaad Ali for the umpteenth time has failed to recreate Saathiya.

The movie talks about a generation which is creative , cool and doesn't believe in getting tied down. It also talks about a generation above which doesn't believe in letting go despite the most trying circumstances. So there is a beautiful dream house which houses both these love couples. It reminds of Love Aaj Kal ; love shifts between feel and ambition and relationships across two generations.

The idea is wonderful on paper and has a successful trail to boast too... Saathiya, Ok Bangaram, Love Aaj Kal, glimpses of Yuva ( only the Vivek Kareena angle )

So where does it go wrong?

Although Shraddha Kapoor after a mixed year has shown her command on the screen , its Aditya Roy Kapur who doesn't give it all to the role. The spunk , energy and chemistry all seem to be missing ! The camera sometimes holds close ups for too long which shows up on his face otherwise expressionless ...duh! And to add to his misery, his lines are somehow commonplace , very poorly written and when you see him onscreen with Shraddha you wonder why would she fall for him !

Mumbai looks sparkling however the editing could have been slick and tighter. The pace could have been made faster. Imagine they had to use a prop - a game to bring some thrill.

One thing worth mentioning is that the lead couple is all about creative jobs - one a game creator , other an architect with a difference , they have tried to blend creativity by looping in  Balkrishna Doshi , a real architect ,  Prahlad Kakar an advertising genius and Leela Samson.

So if you care for Humma Humma, Shraddha Kapoor, Naseeruddin and some other hummables and you really want to figure out as the poster says , you can venture in otherwise like how Aditya snores during a Carnatic music session in the first half , you can too through some induced boredom during the second.

** 2 stars
