STORY: An writer struggling together with his failed marriage and a author’s block lands himself in main hassle, after a blackmailer threatens to disclose his true id. On the similar time, he meets an attractive younger lady with a darkish previous. Collectively, can they overcome their demons and stay fortunately ever after?
REVIEW: Kabir Kapoor (Kunaal Kapoor) is a well-known writer and a YouTuber by the day and the savior of the world by the night time. He disguises himself to assist these in hassle and cease the crimes. However his personal life is in a multitude. His ex-wife (Vidya Malvade), who was dishonest on him, is now out to sue him. This after, squeezing him dry with an enormous alimony. She now needs his ‘khatara’ jeep and the sprawling bungalow in Panchgini, which can also be the labyrinth of Kabir’s deep darkish secrets and techniques. She even hires a crafty detective cum reporter Ricky Rosario (Karim Hajee) to blackmail Kabir. Amidst all of this, an attractive younger backpacker Suhana (Amyra Dastur), actually drops into Kabir’s life when he’s on his strategy to Panchgini. As anticipated, this opportunity assembly promptly develops into love and live-in, however all of a sudden, a spate of murders rock the sleepy hill station and their lives, as Kabir turns into the primary suspect.
The above is as clearly as one can describe, the convoluted and twisted story that this movie is, however beware, that is just the start. As writer-director Amin Hajee lets his creativeness and pen unfastened, we’re bombarded with shady characters and plot-twists that maintain getting caught in their very own net of confusion. To his credit score although, Hajee begins off effectively with intrigue and naturally, the merchandise quantity that includes a svelte Ellie Avrram seducing a super-suave Aamir Khan.
The primary half builds-up slowly, indicating some promise, however the narrative retains getting progressively shaky. The execution stays fairly underwhelming with the story making an attempt to justify its many characters and their motives. For instance, Kabir’s seductive housekeeper Bindiya (Neha Mahjan) does nothing greater than sliding her pallu and sneaking up on her boss. Her contribution to the narrative is zilch, very similar to the battery of twists and turns that don’t add up both. Extra characters are launched proper till the climax, in an try to make it a mind-bender, however the sluggish tempo makes ‘Koi Jaane Na,’ a tedious watch. Including to that, barrage of forgettable songs, make issues worse.
Kunaal Kapoor and Amyra Dastur are well-cast of their roles they usually have some scope to carry out, regardless of the apparent lacunas within the writing. Ashwini Kalsekar is kind of impactful because the robust cop and Atul Kulkarni is grossly wasted.
Ultimately, probably the most convincing half about this one is its title ‘Koi Jaane Na’ that completely sums up the sensation after watching it.
