JugJugg Jeeyo Review

Two well-known young men get married and divorce comes within five years. The second couple are seniors. Up above everything is going fine. Daughter’s marriage is about to happen. But, the father is still searching for love. The wife takes care of him but he cannot be romantic with her.

The film ‘JugJugg Jeeyo’ is in a way a modern version of Dharma Productions’s film ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’, which was released 21 years ago for the new millennials. This is the story of that period in which the son has to enter the field in order to bring the father back on track.

There are three family weddings in the field. Two have happened, third one is about to happen. In the midst of the preparations for this third marriage, the strings of the two marriages of the house are being scattered. The movie ‘Jug Jug Jio’ examines the three marriages from different perspectives by turning them upside down.

Riding on the boats of sacrifice, sacrifice, expectations, aspirations and hopes and trusts, this story moves forward in the midst of real realities of life.

The story of the movie ‘JugJugg Jeeyo’ begins from Canada. Riding on the pace of success, Naina has got a big promotion in her own company and for this she has to move away from her husband from Toronto to New York. Naina and Kuku know each other from childhood. Both did love marriage, but after five years of marriage, their self-respect and pride have put a rift in the relationship.

Kuku’s sister Ginni’s marriage has been fixed in India and both come to India to decide to postpone their divorce till the completion of this marriage. Kuku’s father Bhima is having an affair with Meera, who was Kuku’s teacher, and Bhima, while intoxicated, also tells this to his son. The son, who is looking for a chance to talk about his divorce, is stunned to learn about his father’s preparations for divorce.

The mother is unaware of these two disasters that have spread in the family. Betty too has agreed to marry a stranger just for the pleasure of the family while she falls in love with a young man who is struggling to find his existence in the music world.

Director Raj Mehta spent a long time as assistants to other directors at Dharma Productions and Yash Raj Films and then made his first film three years ago, ‘Good Newwz’. His style of telling a story by mixing a serious subject in the juice of humor seems to carry forward in the beginning of the film ‘Jug Jug Jio’ as well. Till the interval it seems that Raj Mehta is not able to grasp the topic properly.

His direction is also seen wandering in different tracks of the film, but after the interval, the car of the film comes on track and starts tying the audience with him. And, Raj is helped in this by the powerful performances of Anil Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor.

Raj Mehta has wrapped up the film beautifully after this and has taken the film to Happy Edding by creating different scenes that prove their performance for each artist.

The film ‘JugJugg Jeeyo’ is the story of the love story of Kuku and Naina. The two get married at the beginning of the film. After this, both have a struggle to get out of this marriage first and then to save this marriage. For Varun Dhawan, who turned 35, this film was the toughest challenge.

When Geeta Saini sits down to drink w*ne by the lake with her daughter-in-law Naina after hearing about her husband’s affair, the essence of the film comes down to the dialogues received by Neetu Kapoor. Daughters who are married to an unknown man bring hope of love to another home.

Even before both are able to become husband and wife properly, both become parents. Then when the children grow up and move away, both of them get a chance to become husband and wife again, but by then both have become habitual of each other. Now a person may be good or bad, but where do the habits leave?

That is the essence of the movie ‘JugJugg Jeeyo’. This is why the film passes the test of family entertainment because it is a matter of two generations apart from the generation gap of two generations to accommodate the changing thinking. The film is fine for a weekend family outing.
