Jaanisaar movie review: Watch ‘Umrao Jaan’ or ‘Gaman’ instead, Muzaffar Ali’s timeless triumphs
Indian Express
The camera snakes around the corners of the opulent room, as courtesan Noor dances the Lucknowi-gharana kathak (this graceful kathak style came into existence in Awadh in the 19th century) with mischief and poise
An 'epic' clash of the most stone faced, emotionless and wooden actor alive. 'Jaanisaar' by the maverick Rajah Muzaffar Ali the flag bearer of b-town on screen 'Shaan-e-Avadh' and the forgotten India's Ganga Jamuna Tehzeeb (culture), better remembered for his eternally beautiful Rekha starer Umrao Jaan (1981) and the brilliantly classic piece of art Gaman (1978 - his debut) makes a comeback after decades old hiatus with this Yawntest (vintage) period love story of a king and a courtesan.
India Glitz
This Imran Abbas – Pernia Qureshi’s historical romance is a snooze-fest!
A disappointing film.
Poetry lovers will love this film- it is a true poetic delight!
A disappointing film
Jaanisaar will test your patience
Jaanisaar- Average Performance, Naïve Plot and bad Music & Dance make the film a curse to catch up!
Just Bollywood
No Jaanisaar is not bad. Not just bad. It is almost cruel!
