A family drama about keeping the family together as one, Raj Mehtaâ€™s take on the challenge of keeping love alive in a marriage reminds you of those early 2000s big family dramas.
Jugjugg Jeeyo is a tale of three marriages – one has lasted 35 years, another is five years old, and a third is days away from being solemnised. Complications began out of mistakes, misgivings and mishaps in all three.
Kuku (Varun Dhawan) and Naina’s (Kiara Advani) five-year-old marriage is on the verge of breaking down, while the formerâ€™s parents, Bheem (Anil Kapoor) and Geeta (Neetu Kapoor), are in a similar state of mind as well.
A lot of punches and jokes are thrown in to keep the pace going. When you have a huge ensemble cast at hand, the directorâ€™s challenge is to not only give equal scope to all his actors, but to ensure no one eats into the others’ moments.
Kiara and Varunâ€™s chemistry is refreshing and has some strong scenes which showcase a new side to her. Maniesh Paul is a natural when it comes to bringing in those lighter moments, while Neetu Kapoor is a delight to watch on the big screen.
Director Raj Mehta was able to showcase the strength of its entire star cast in the best way possible.
The film had a decent opening at the box office. According to reports, the film collected around Rs 9.28 crore on Day 1.
