Zapya proudly presents a movie of the month – “OK Jaanu (English: OK Darling)”, is a 2017 Indian romantic drama film directed by Shaad Ali.
The movie is a bracing take on modern day romance and relationship between two well-educated, independent and ambitious individuals Tara (Shraddha Kapoor) and Aditya (Aditya Roy Kapur).
Aditya is a young game designer from Lucknow who dreams of immigrating to the US and living the American dream. At a chance encounter during his friend’s wedding, he meets Tara. She is a recent architecture school graduate working in an architecture firm. She dreams of going to Paris to pursue higher education. They are both non-committal and have ambitions to succeed. It’s when that the two meet, plans go haywire and they decide to date each other as long as they are in Mumbai. They decide to move in and they convince an elderly couple Gopi (Naseeruddin Shah) and Charulata (Leela Samson) to rent out their abode to them and let their modern day conceptual love of no strings attached blossom. Gopi is a strict but an affectionate landlord who treats Aditya and Tara as his own children while taking care of his Alzheimer ridden wife Charulata. With only 10 days left and parting imminent, Aditya and Tara are forced to confront some matters of the heart ❤
(OK Jaanu – Official Trailer)
Ok Jaanu has the theme of new ideas trying to transform the old and vice versa. The story seems to suggest that the institution of marriage is not all that flawed, but the basic premise of freedom, ambitions and privacy should be respected. It is all acceptable as long as compromises are left at bay.
Ok Jaanu is a romantic movie that Zapya thinks is really nice to watch!
