Jawaani Jaaneman also marks the coming together of seasoned actors like Saif Ali Khan and Tabu, who, despite collaborating on multiple projects, never really got a chance to share screen space.
Saif was last seen in the blockbuster historical drama Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, also starring Ajay Devgn. Meanwhile, Tabu was last seen in the Telugu movie Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo.
As far as the box office predictions go, the slice-of-life film is expected to strike a chord with the city audience and the youth, according to film trade analyst Girish Johar.
Johar told indianexpress.com, “With Jawaani Jaaneman, Saif Ali Khan is doing the kind of film in which he excels. His films Cocktail and Love Aaj Kal which had him playing a similar character did well. This is his kind of film. The trailer is promising, and the music is also being enjoyed thoroughly. It has Tabu in a pivotal role and marks Pooja Bedi’s daughter Alaya’s Bollywood debut. So, overall it looks like a well-mounted film. It is an upmarket commercial entertainer. Initially, it will attract the youth and audience of metro cities. Then, depending on word of mouth, it can penetrate accordingly.”
