Jashnn film review - Party's over!

Director: Raksha Mistry, Hasnain S
Starring: Adhyayan Suman, Shahana Goswami, Anjana Sukhani, Humayun Sayeed

Some parties are never meant to take off and Jashnn certainly is one. This is a snooze fest that keeps you awake sometimes only because you are stunned at the sheer inanity on display. It’s hard to believe that the Bhatts who are generally known to be quite proficient with their script selections could have actually green-lighted something as trite as this.

Akash (Adhyayan Suman) is an aspiring singer who lives with his sister Nisha (Shahana Goswami), an ex model who now lives as a rich man, Aman Bajaj’s (Pakistan import Humayun Sayeed) mistress. Nisha keeps tolerating an abusive relationship with the man because she insists she got tired of being middle-class and roaming in an auto! So she instead roams around in the bungalow wearing skimpy clothes that look like they could slip off her chest anytime.
Meanwhile, Akash falls in love with Bajaj’s sister, Sara(Anjana Sukhani ). Bajaj is livid when he hears the truth and goes all out to destroy Akash’s dream of making it as a singer.

This is such a hackneyed script and in the hands of directors Raksha Mistry and Hasnain. S (The Train, The Killer), it’s almost an impossible film to watch. Both of them treat their characters with IQ levels that would shame even 5-year-olds. There’s no logic to any of the characters actions or motivations.

Like in all Bhatt films, the dialogues are probably the only bright spot but they are distributed so indiscriminately to the characters, that it doesn’t even ring true. Like you sit up when Bajaj says, ‘Jhagda tab karo jab jeetne ki umeed ho. Jhagda hamesha barabar walon mein hota hai’ But then, the film does just the opposite and what ensues is a fake drama, ending in Bajaj shedding copious tears watching Akash perform in the end. Before that, you have the latter stoically announcing, “Itni zillat ki barish ho gaye hai, ke hum kuch dhul se gaye hain” None of that dialoguebaazi, however, saves this disaster-of- a flick.
Adhyayan acts like he can’t believe he’s been offered such a meaty part and hams like crazy. There’s a smugness that is quite off putting about him. Anjanu Sukhani overacts too, but she’s decent enough here. Shahana - always so competent - is stuck with a role that doesn’t even make sense and is made to spout dialogues, ‘Main tangi hue gosht nahin banna chahti’
Overall, a film that should not be touched with a barge pole.
