After working in period films like ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’ and ‘Laal Kaptaan,’ Saif Ali Khan is all set to impress us in one amazing Casanova avatar. Yes, in his upcoming film ‘Jawaani Jaaneman,’ he is back into his element.
The movie, which also stars debutante Alaya F. and De De Pyaar De actor Tabu, has been creating a buzz from the very day the makers revealed the teaser. And today, finally, the makers unveiled the much-awaited trailer of the movie, and as expected, it is sure to win your heart!
The trailer will surely remind you of Cocktail as it shows Saif as the playboy and care-free kind of guy who does not believe in the concept of love or marriage. Alaya, who comes out of the blue into his life, plays his daughter from Tabu and of whom Saif knew nothing about. Saif Ali Khan will be playing Amar Khanna, Alaya Furniturewala as Gauri Khanna, and Tabu as Jaya Bakshi.
The 2-minute-32-seconds video opens with a talk between Saif and his mother, played by Farida Jalal, where she is questioning him about being gay as he refuses to get married. But then soon, some 21-year-old girl knocks on his door and gives him a reality check. However, Saif refuses to welcome fatherhood, and here enters Tabu, his daughter's mother and ex-wife. Between the fun-bittersweet banter and humor, he finds his family.
Along with a classic song, ‘Jihne Mera Dil Luteya,’ the makers will be recreating Saif’s popular song, ‘Ole Ole, ’ for the movie, which makes it more interesting. The movie also stars Chunky Panday, Rameet Sandhu, and Kubbra Sait in the pivotal roles.
In all, Saif plays the role of a single father looking for a prospective match, not for his daughter but himself. Naughty at forty, still, he looks incredible in his young avatar, and also Tabu will charm you with her presence. On the other hand, Alaya, Pooja Bedi’s daughter, is nothing less than a breath of fresh air.
The film reunites Tabu and Saif Ali Khan on the celluloid after so long, i.e., after 1999 film Biwi No.1, where the actor played a guest appearance.
Talking about his film, Director Nitin said,
“Working on Jawaani Jaaneman has been an immense pleasure, not only because of the amazing team it has, but also because of the wonderful story it tells. It is truly a coming-of-age film with a 2020 vibe. While Tabu is going to be seen in an interesting role, Alaya also has done a wonderful job, and Saif was simply commendable. In fact, the poster has only brought out his character’s true vibe.”
While reviewing the trailer, a movie critic Taran Adarsh wrote,
“Funky and quirky... The plot as well as the characters [#Saif, #Tabu and #Alaya] makes it so interesting... Here's #JawaaniJaanemanTrailer:”
Helmed by Nitin Kakkar, ‘Jawaani Jaaneman’ was first scheduled for a release on February 7. But now, the makers confirmed the release date with the poster, i.e., January 31, 2020.
Well, the film is ready to face a box office clash with Sonia Mann and Himesh Reshammiya starrer Happy Hardy and Heer, where the musician-actor is seen playing a double role. So, it will be more fun to see which movie wins the clash.
