Kareena Kapoor Khan made her OTT debut with Sujoy Ghosh’s thriller Jaane Jaan. The Netflix thriller, which premiered today, also marking Bebo’s birthday, features Vijay Varma and Jaideep Ahlawat as the male leads. After watching the trailer and promo videos, the expectations were sky-high from Jaane Jaan. However, it has turned out to be ‘disappointing’ for critics. While some have lauded the performances of the stellar star cast, many others have called Jaane Jaan as ‘predictable’ and ‘sluggish’. Take a look at some of the reviews shared on this Netflix film. Jaane Jaan Movie Review: Kareena Kapoor Khan, Jaideep Ahlawat and Vijay Varma Shine in Sujoy Ghosh's Partly Intriguing Murder Mystery.
Film Companion – The build-up feels not like narrative subterfuge but deception, because the twist itself is dishonest: It’s in service of the storytelling instead of the story.
India TV – Jaane Jaan is a mystery that unfolds at its own pace. Though the climax leaves room for ambiguity, the plot is predictable. Comparing Jaane Jaan with Kahaani would be unfair, however, Sujoy Ghosh’s second innings with Netflix, after Typewriter, is unfulfilling but it will surely leave one craving for ‘Dragon Momos.’
Filmi Beat – Jaane Jaan is not the best work of Sujoy Ghosh and Kareena, but if you have a Netflix subscription you can surely watch it once as it's a perfect film where ‘Drishyam meets Kahaani’.
Hindustan Times – And if there's anything that saves Jaane Jaan from sinking, it is the impeccable performances from this trio. the film falters in more departments than one, and it's hard to ignore. Jaane Jaan falls victim to way too many giveaways during the course of its screenplay.
NewsByte – From location to crime, victim, suspect, clue, investigation, and climax, it has all the elements needed for a mystery thriller, yet it disappoints with its delivery. The key characters and their stories have many shades but all are left half-baked. The problem doesn't lie with the performances but the story. The movie doesn't live up to the excitement it built with its trailer.
