Jug Jugg Jeeyo Review: Featuring Varun & Kiara Advani In A Family Entertainment

In India, weddings are more like festivals and hence this often leads to divorce as a controversial thing. It is seen that divorce takes us on a different roller coaster ride that evokes emotions and keeps us uncertain. And Karan Johar along with director Raj Mehta knows how to perfectly blend this entertainment package into star studded movie.

Likewise, Raj Mehta gave his best to pull off two divorces in the same family in Bollywood comical style. The plot revolves around childhood lovers Kukoo (Varun Dhawan) and Naina (Kiara Advani) after their five years of wedding. The couple decides to part ways but the real problem arises when he discovers his father’s (Anil Kapoor) intentions to leave his mother (Neetu Kapoor) for another woman, Meera (Tisca Chopra).

The major plot discusses the conflict, but Raj Mehta along with his co-writers, Sumit Batheja and Anuraj Singh, have scripted the screenplay in such a way that the dramatic heavy side is followed up with something light.

Like other films, Jug Jugg Jeeyo is not perfect, it has flaws. The film targets an urban audience, without reaching desi cinema-going viewers. To avoid the spoilers, the filmmaker could have avoided the bold step taken as not every viewer will digest it. The cinematography is colourful and happening. Editing is fine as there are many pst instances. Dialogues and its delivery was excellent, written by Rishabh Sharma. Music is already loved by fans, and Nach Punjaban is surely a hit.

The film is a hit for its screenplay, acting, lead actors’ chemistry, storyline and romantic sequence. Jug Jugg Jeeyo definitely deserves a watch. Acting by Varun Dhawan and Kiara Advani, especially in the second half is commendable. The scene of confrontation between the two looks real and is among the best scenes.
