Nushrratt Bharuccha starrer JANHIT MEIN JAARI gives out a nice message but the weak script, average direction go against the film.

Janhit Mein Jaari Review {2.0/5} & Review Rating

JANHIT MEIN JAARI is the story of woman’s extraordinary fight. Manokamna Tripathi (Nushrratt Bharuccha) aka Manu lives in Chanderi with her father Purushottam (Ishtiyak Khan) and mother Manju (Sapna Sand). Her parents want her to get married at the earliest. Manu is not interested and insists that she’ll tie the knot only after landing a job. Manju gives her one month time to secure a job, failing which she’ll be married off. Manu then gives several job interviews, but none click. Finally, she meets Aadarniya (Brijendra Kala). He realizes that she has a fine marketing acumen. He offers her a job in his company, Little Umbrella and even promises to pay a handsome salary of Rs. 40,000 per month. However, there’s a catch. Little Umbrella sells condoms. Manu’s job profile is to go on field and increase the sales of the contraceptive. Manu at first is hesitant. But remembering her mother’s deadline, she takes up the job. Meanwhile, she meets Ranjan (Anud Singh Dhaka) and both fall in love. They decide to get hitched. Ranjan’s father Kewal (Vijay Raaz) is of a strict and old-school mindset. Ranjan hides from Kewal and the rest of his family members that Manu sells condoms for a living. Manu and Ranjan get married and one day, Kewal learns the truth. What happens next forms the rest of the film.

Raaj Shaandilyaa’s story has a nice message. However, it gives a déjà vu of his own film DREAM GIRL [2019] as it’s also about a protagonist who takes up a job he/she is not proud of initially and hides the fact from his/her family member(s). It is also a bit similar to HELMET [2021], which was also a comedy based on condom sales and its importance. Jai Basantu Singh, Raaj Shaandilyaa, Rajan Agarwal and Sonali Singh’s screenplay fails to entice. There are far too many tracks and there are places where the principal track takes a backseat. Even the main track of a woman working in the condom industry is not fleshed out well. Raaj Shaandilyaa’s dialogues are quite funny and try to uplift certain scenes. Sadly, the script is not upto the mark and hence, even some of the dialogues don’t have the desired impact.

Jai Basantu Singh’s direction is average. To give credit where its due, he has handled some scenes deftly, like Manu giving interviews but to no avail, Devi Prasad (Paritosh Pati Tripathi) overhearing Manu and Ranjan’s conversation, Ranjan’s entry etc. The scene of Hemant (Sumit Gulati) entering the bedroom with antacid instead of a condom has no relevance to the main story and yet, it works as it’s too funny. On the flipside, the goings-on are difficult to digest. The way Ranjan decides to instantly support Manu after hearing about Babli’s abortion episodes doesn’t seem organic. Length is also an issue and moreover, the interval comes in too late. Kewal’s predicament also doesn’t seem convincing. The ending is convenient, but the makers failed to explain exactly how Manu contributed to the panchayat election victory.

Parda Daari (Official Song) | Janhit Mein Jaari | Nushrratt Bharuccha, Anud Singh

Nushrratt Bharuccha delivers a fine performance. Her comic timing is spot on and she proves that she can handle the film as a solo lead. Anud Singh Dhaka is confident. Paritosh Pati Tripathi is funny but gets a raw deal in the second half. Vijay Raaz, Brijendra Kala, Ishtiyak Khan and Sapna Sand are dependable. Tinnu Anand (Dadaji) is decent. Paresh Ganatra (Advocate) is wasted. Sumit Gulati (Hemant) leaves a mark thanks to a funny scene in the second half. Sapna Basoya (Lajja), Vikram Kochhar (Vijay) and Sukriti (Babli) are okay.

Music is poor. The title track is catchy. ‘Udaa Gulaal Ishq Wala’ is well shot. ‘Tenu Aunda Nahi’, ‘Rang Tera‘ and ‘Jijaji Ki Jeb Se’ are forgettable. Aman Pant’s background music is as per the theme and mood of the film.

Chirantan Das’s cinematography is neat. Bhaskar Gupta’s production design is realistic. Same goes for Joe Mansoori and Vishakha Kullarwar’s costumes. Jai Basantu Singh and Jayant Verma’s editing is not great as the film is needlessly long.

On the whole, JANHIT MEIN JAARI gives out a nice message and is replete with some funny moments and one-liners. However, the weak script, average direction along with the long length go against the film. At the box office, it will have a tough time and its prospects will remain poor.
