Jashnn Hindi Movie Review
Directors behind The Killer and The Train are back with Jashnn starring Adhyayan Suman, Sahana Goswami and Anjana Sukhani.
Jashnn is a musical drama that revolves around a young man (Adhyayan Suman), whose dream is to become a rockstar. In his quest for name, fame, money and success, he is supported by his three friends cum band members, his sister (Sahana Goswami) and girlfriend (Anjana Sukhani) all who share his vision as well as his tribulation.
Although the basic concept of Jashnn bares certain similarities to Rock On, it ain't a patch on the Farhan Akhtar film. Of the 6 characters in Jashn, the script revolves around 3 characters, one of which (the romantic angle with Anjana Sukhani) doesn't work.
The first half is quiet strong, high on emotions and reasonably paced. The problem though, is with the second half and the love story which stretches the second half so much that the impact of the first half is lost. The climax is half baked.
Music by Toshi-Sharib is fantastic. Dialogues are good. Coming to the performances, Jashnn belongs to Shahana Goswami and Humayun Saeed. They are absolutely brilliant. Adhyayan does well, not quiet upto the mark with his dialogue delivery and goes slightly over the top in the climax, but a much improved performance from Raaz. Both Anjana Sukhani's character and her performance fall flat.
To sum up, Jashnn works in parts, but doesn't in its entirety. Length and the confused screenplay are its biggest flaws.
Pros - Music, three performances and the first half
Cons - Screenplay, slow pace, climax, Anjana Sukhani
