Jayantabhai Ki Luv Story is a Bollywood crime romance film directed by Vinnil Markan, and produced by Kumar Taurani under Tips Music Films.The film stars Vivek Oberoi opposite Neha Sharma in lead roles. the film is released on 15th February 2013, in celebration of Valentines Day
Verdict : Good plot, good performances but weak execution towards the later half
After a long gap, the Maya Dolas of the hit film, ‘Shootout at Lokhandwala’, Vivek Oberoi is back with yet another Bhai role in ‘Jayanta Bhai Ki Luv Story’.
A good tale gone sour, the story is about Jayanta Bhai (vivek) a don who falls in love with his neighbour Simi (neha). As expected, both are very different in nature and added to that there is the girl’s father (shishir sharma) who needs to be handled. Though Jayanta is a tough don he is a man with a golden heart and that’s what draws him to Simi. Whether he is successful in his love story or not forms the rest of the tale.
Positive Points :-
Vivek Oberoi in a lover-bhai’s avatar is confident and brings some weight to his character. His comic timing is good as he gives a good performance throughout the film. Neha Sharma looks beautiful and ups the glamour quotient of the whole film. Being a romantic comedy. The story narration is simple and is good in only bits and pieces.
Negative Points :-
Director Vinnil Markan fails to bind the story together as the film seems out of place in many areas. The story is dull and restrains the actors from giving a stronger performance. Though Vivek is projected as the Bhai, there is a lack of bhaigiri in the film. Though Neha Sharma looks cute as Simran, her acting skills leave much to be desired.
The other supporting characters decide to give over-the-top performances and the film moves at a very fast pace leaving many incomplete scenes throughout. Strong character actors like Nassir and Zakir Hussain are wasted in small roles.
Direction, Music & Technical Aspects :-
Dialogues in the film are funny and depict the typical tapori language of local Mumbaikars. Vinnil manages to do his best in the humor quotient and takes out the funny side of Vivek. Songs are decent enough especially the one sung by Atif Aslam. Director Vinnil does an average job in the direction department. He loses the plot as many scenes do not have any connection. The screenplay of the movie is very poor as the complete second half goes for a toss.
