One fine day, we see Dharmendra’s character Kawalji utters the name of Shabana Azmi aka Jamini. This made everyone suspicious in the house. Even, the doctor who checks him says that if you find Jamini than your grandfather health might get improved. After that, Rocky finds a diary of his grandfather and an old photo of Jamini. This makes Rocky curious and he began to search for Jamini. Well, he finds an article which talks about Jamini on the internet.

Bollywood Crazies Opinion: The story of this film is very good but the execution is not up to the mark. The screenplay has some issues and the movie didn’t able to impact me to the whole. Though, I must say that there are some good writing and dialogues that made me feel connected and relatable. We have seen such movies in the past but the presentation is something new here. Ranveer has essayed such characters in the past too, therefore you might relate his character here with the crazy Ranveer from Band Baaja Baaraat (2010) Or Ladies Vs Ricky Behl (2011) or even Befikre (2016). So, he didn’t impress me as such but still a decent role. Alia looks really beautiful here and I liked her character and it seems like her role was inspired by Madhuri Dixit’s character in Beta movie (1992) where she had issues with Anil Kapoor’s mother in the film Aruna Irani. As, same situation was there here too in the second half between Alia and Jaya Bachchan in this movie. There are few messages in this movie both for men and women and I think they are good ones. My most emotional dialogues comes when, Dharmendra sir says, “Ghar Toda Nahi Karte Bete”, which means “Don’t Break Home my son.” The highlight of this movie was Jaya Bachchan’s character. The soul touching performance have been given by Dharmendra and Shabana Azmi here, as every old or new heart broken person could relate with it. It was a decent film but we have seen exceptional direction from Karan Johar in the past, which was missing here. The cinematography is good and there is a song that took my breath away which was shot in Jammu and Kashmir. The music is not up to the mark which is the biggest flaw for me as Karan is always good in that part. The emotions were there in the film but still the movie won’t leave a big impact on you. Still, the multiplex audience might liked this movie. There are many smooching scenes in this film, which could have been easily avoided as family audience might not liked it. The editing is ok and the film could have been easily trimmed for another 20 odd minutes for better audience retention value. The production value is superb and I liked the way they shot and shown the devotional song. The set design in the devotional song was good. I think, Jaya Bachchan stole the show here from new starcast.

Directed by Karan Johar and written by Ishita Moitra, Shashank Khaitan and Sumit Roy. It have been produced by Hiroo Yash Johar, Karan Johar and Apoorva Mehta. The cinematography has been done by Manush Nandan and editing work taken care by Nitin Baid. The musical score has been given by Pritam.

Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani movie budget hasn’t been revealed yet but it could reportedly being around 118 to 120 crores maximum.

Altogether, Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani movie is surely a one time watch movie for its family related message.

Last Word: Watch for Jaya Bachchan, Dharmendra and Shabana Azmi. Also watch for its dialogues.

Bollywood Crazies Ratings: Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani Movie Review- 3 stars out of 5 stars.
