Purani Jeans is simply a waste of time and money. There is nothing new in this fiesta at all. The movie had better to be skipped. It has been made on time and tested formula of friends turning foes for a girl. A love triangle that gives us to watch the cinematic extravaganza which we have watched unlimited times on Bollywood screen in the past.
The movie starts with Kasauli Gang consisting of Sid (Tanuj Virwani), Sam (Aditya Seal), Tino (Kashyap Kapoor), Bobby (Param Baidwaan) and Suzzy (Raghav Kakkar). The gang goes well until a girl enters into the scene – Nayantara Sapru (Izabelle Leite) joins them. Both Sid and Sam fall for the same girl and the love triangle takes place. Friends turn enemies for a girl.
The writer of the movie Tanushri Chattrji Bassu, who also has directed this film, did not try to even inject some portions of novelty in this movie. At least, there should have been few twists and turns to ignite the interest level of the audiences. It is a script written in haste to make a movie in super haste, as the writer is the director also. Direction is simply flat – it cannot get the viewer engaged into the proceedings at all.
Ram Sampath’s music is below average. Editing is poor. Cinematography is okay.
Tanuj Virwani is fine. Aditya Seal is brilliant. Tino is average. Izabelle Leite is gorgeous, but she desperately needs to learn the acting skills. Rest of the cast is just about okay.
On the whole, Purani Jeans is a time and money waste. It’s a boring movie all the way.
