Arbaaz Khan starrer ‘Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai’ has been released in cinemas. The film is directed by Keshhav Panneriy.
Story of the movie: It’s the story of Alia Patrick (Manjari Fadnnis) and her journey which starts in Udaipur. Born in a traditional Catholic family, she faces sexism early on from her parents. In college, she falls in love with Alex and thinks it will be forever. However, they marry her off to a Rajasthani Prince Vikram Pratap Singh (Ashutosh Rana) for money. A violent, psychopath, he is a textbook masochist with a history of ill-treating women in his family. Somewhat unhappy, Alia still gives away all her freedoms and is content to sitting at home. But when she is forced to abort her unborn daughter, she leaves the haveli with the help of close aide Lakshmi (Supriya Pathak), and flees to Mumbai. Here, she gives birth to her baby girl and turns over a new leaf as she starts a journey as a writer that will eventually take her to New York. She gets another chance at love in the form of NRI philanthropist Aditya Kapoor. But will she take it, or has the hardships face in life made her bitter to accept love?
Star Performance: Arbaaz Khan as Aditya Kapoor played his role okay. Ashutosh Rana is a wasted in this below average film. Manjiri Fadnis as Alia Patrick, tries hard to emote everything at once. Himansh Kohli has a small role in the film. Supriya Pathak is there in this film, The actress who is so talented will feel you sad to watch her here. The only one we liked way too much is Prem Chopra. He has nailed it as an Urdu writer who gives new wings to Alia.
Music Direction: The music of the film is extremely boring and you almost feel like leaving the theater.
Direction: There are unlimited number of horrible continuity breaks. Time lapses do not make sense. Screenplay is scattered and leaves no impact. It is crafted so inefficiently that the most heart-wrenching scenes rather look funny. Sequences are so dragged that you start yawning.
Watch Or Not: If you are a fan of Arbaaz Khan than you can watch it. Otherwise, wait for television premiere.
