    Amazing

    JPNA‬ is a total commercial movie which gives you everything you want.
    It has comedy, beautiful locations, amazing music and good acting. The
    strength of the film is its strong punchlines and good script. Overall
    story of the film is ORIGINAL (according to my knowledge). The film is
    made for Pakistani audience and ‪Pakistani‬ public will understand and
    enjoy it. Don’t even think of missing this movie. Music of the film is
    extremely powerful and fun to listen and dance. You can point out 1000
    mistakes in the music if you analyze it critically but if you want to
    just enjoy the music, then this album is the best of the recent times.
    JPNA is a must watch

    The funniest movie I have ever seen

    I went to see the movie here in California, thinking the movie would be
    a 6-7 out of 10, but once the movie started I couldn’t believe how
    funny the movie was. People literally had tears in their eyes laughing,
    we couldn’t believe some of the jokes could be that blunt. And it
    wasn’t that movie was funny only in parts, it was just hilarious
    through out. Humayun Saeed I thought had been okay in recent movies,
    but in this movie he completely changed and did an excellent job. He
    had real expressions and moves. Movie has a pretty big cast, and all of
    them did an excellent job. Number one in the list of comedy movies
    (including Hollywood). So a 9.5 out of 10 for me.

    Average flick and funny in bits , Ahmad Butt steals the show

    Aoa , just watched this flick on Eid 2nd day , after watching the
    trailer expectations were sky high but JPNA failed to fulfill all
    expectations . It was not that great but even not that bad too , some
    where in between average and good . It had few funny moments especially
    Ahmad Butt dialogs were very funny and rib tickling , every time he
    came on screen the laughter started and he kept us glued to screen but
    the rest of the cast was not up to the mark . Actally 1st half of the
    movie before interval was very nice and the plot was building up nicely
    but after interval the movie went no where a lot of characters ruined
    it with out giving away much information about each character .
    Especially Sohai’s character in the movie came out of no where so plot
    definitely had some lope holes , so after interval every thing was
    happening so fast that it seemed Miss mash every where . The comedy was
    not at par with the Indian movies and all the people in the hall were
    forcefully laughing . One liners were quite good though . The movie
    also made some fun of critically acclaimed films like Waar , Bol , Main
    hon Shahid Afridi and drama pyaray afzal all references were used in
    different dialogs . The cast was very big . Humayun Saeed started well
    when he had serious dialogs but doesn’t know ABCD of comedy , Hamza was
    good , Vasay was very good , Ahmad Butt was excellent , Ayesha Khan was
    OK , Sarwat was best female actor in movie , sohai was good , mehwish
    was just OK , Bushra ansari , javed sheikh and Ismail Tara did their
    part OK . Songs were very good especially Dance the party. Choreography
    was awesome too i mean places shown etc but dance in almost all songs
    was awful only Sohai and humayun danced a little bit well Ahmad butt
    also danced quite well in Khul Jaye Botal otherwise all the dances were
    totally crap . But still this movie is not a game changer it may do
    block buster business but commercially it lacked the power punch. It
    will look like a little baby in front of average bollywood comedy flick
    so Pakistani cinema needs to work hard on comedy movies and should come
    up with fresh scripts to give power packed entertainment. Some people
    may differ from my opinion it depends upon taste , any way nice gift
    for fans on this Eid . Overall 6/10.

    versatility in Her Roles In Future.Javed Sheikh Is Seen In Every
    Upcoming Movie And Does Good in everything He is in .IT IS A PERFECT
    COMEDY FULL WITH LOCAL JOKES AND YOU CANT HELP LAUGHING!

    brilliant ,run ride and must watch

    yes, when u r watching movie u would find story quite familiars with
    some other movies of Hollywood and bollywood, but after leaving the
    cinema u would b still laughing from the jokes and good feeling that u
    did’NT waste your money… i would admit plot is not quite original
    but, yes, its also requires lots of talent to make an unoriginal story
    into such a fun ride, roller coaster ride.plus, acting was on the top
    of the notch,every actor did justice to his/her character,making u love
    them all.

    the timing of jokes, quick lines, unexpected twist,strong performances,
    happy ending, a social message is what which make this movie a sure
    blockbuster.. so yes go out and watch this movie for sure

    A comedy well done!

    I expected nothing from this movie when I went to see it. I thought
    it’s Pakistani so why not support it. The impression I had of the movie
    from the promotions was of a mediocre copy of a ton of Bollywood and
    Hollywood movies. But I had seen two Pakistani comedies recently – Na
    Maloom Afraad and Wrong No. – which were good so I hoped JPNA was
    something like that.

    But JPNA not only surpassed all my expectations, it surprised me and it
    took Pakistani film standard to a whole another level (just like Khuda
    Kay Liye did when it came out, and the same with Waar).

    The comedy material of this movie is highly original and entertaining
    thanks to the writer Vasay Chaudhry. I literally laughed out loud
    throughout the film. I actually appreciated the song breaks so I could
    catch my breath.

    I was a bit reserved towards the costumes of the women and some of the
    drinking related scenes/situations. Not because I am not used to it,
    but because expecting it to be a Pakistani film, maybe it should not go
    down that road. But all in all what I did appreciate wholeheartedly was
    the type of comedy it was. Not forceful or sex-oriented, which movies
    with these type of topics tend to be. It was a good and clean comedy
    that you can enjoy with both friends and family.

    The director Nadeem Baig did a very good job by holding everything
    together, getting the best out of the actors and making sure the movie
    gets a grand scale, and the movie paced smoothly, unlike Wrong No.
    which dragged a bit. It did not feel like or look like a low budget
    film, also because of all the actors who were superb in their acting
    and comedic timing. A special mention to Humayun Saeed who you
    definitely have not seen like this before. He was so good!

    Go watch this with an open mind and take it as it is: A comedy film
    (Maybe more suited for the Pakistani audience because a lot of jokes
    and one liners are directed towards the Pakistani people, but I believe
    non-Pakistanis will also enjoy this). Highly recommended.

    Go watch it…recommend.

    Watched it last night at Cinepax multiplex and man what a laughter ride
    it was, being Pakistani movie i was expecting it to be some typical
    copy of some Bollywood flicks but man they took it to whole new level.
    The whole cast did some awesome job to pull a genuine Pakistani comedy
    especially the one-liners throughout the movie were top-notch. Although
    it has some flaws when it comes to costumes i mean what is the purpose
    of going to that road of Bollywood when you can do it far better
    without it. One thing which was surprising form me is its music, it was
    enjoyable with nicely choreographed dances. All in all JPNA is not your
    average Bollywood like chick flick its original Pakistani entertainment
    so grab your tickets and watch it.

  • Sheheryar AhmadSeptember 28, 2015Reply

    Really good movie with some flaws.

    I was thinking of taking my mom at Jawani Pher Nahi Aani, but glad that
    I didn’t. It is a comedy movie with a lot of short dresses and
    alcoholic drinks which really doesn’t make it a family movie.

    It does have really good story but a lot of dialogues, ideas and scenes
    were adopted from different Pakistani movies and dramas. Even the whole
    sequence from different movies were copied and replayed in this movie,
    which was defiantly an effort to make the film more comic, but it
    certainly was less creative.

    Even though it is an amazing movie which gave me a lot of laughs, it
    does have lot of things that put this movie in the list of the worst
    movies of all time. First of all Mr. Baig should understand that sex
    doesn’t sell at all. The movie portray really rich class of Pakistani
    society that doesn’t care about their cultural values. About 90% of
    Pakistani people want to watch a movie with their families and it is
    really not suitable for a family to see four Pakistani guys dancing and
    drinking with girls in bikinis and Pakistani ladies wearing really
    short skirts. Mr. Baig must understand the reason for films like Khuda
    Kay Liye, Waar, Bol and namaloom afrad’s success was that those
    record-breaking films had their own original stories, cast and they did
    not copy anything from Bollywood. One of the real strong points of this
    movie was acting especially Sarwat Gilani did fabulous job and her
    acting was really strong. The character of Bushra Ansari was good as
    well, but since they were copying many things from other movies, I
    would have liked it if they had portrayed her as Saima Chaudhry from
    Azar ki Ayegi Baraat because she is the Punjabi speaking wife of a
    businessman anyway in this movie. Camera angle and direction was really
    good but director used so much effects to reduce face marks and cuts
    that all actors look like plastic in close-up shots. Vasy Chaudry’s
    writings are always impressive and this movie can be one of his prides.
    One of the scenes in which Hamza asks him to do something and what he
    does in reaction made me laugh so much that it brought tears in to my
    eyes. A total 10/10 to writer. I don’t understand the logic in showing
    scenes where actors are smoking but a note that Smoking Kills is also
    provided on the screen. Like, if you really know that smoking kills,
    then why would you chose to advertise it or even put it in the film? It
    really doesn’t change the story a bit if character is not smoking.
    Apparently, sensor board failed to realize that drinking also kills. If
    this warning goes with smoking then it should have went out with all
    the scenes in which characters drank as well. Overall this movie is
    worth watching but I would rather watch it after deleting all scenes
    that are not suitable in family sitting. They add nothing to the story.
    It really is a nice effort by Mr Baig and entire team. I would end it
    by saying it’s a good movie with some flaws. BUT REMEMBER, THIS IS NOT
    A FAMILY MOVIE.

    A must watch! Stop reading reviews and head to the nearest theater. 🙂

    FIrst, I would like to appreciate the whole team and each and every
    actor of this film, It was truly an unexpected movie for me. Second,
    Direction was another field where Pakistani movie just surprised us
    with such a tremendous improvement, Third but not the least the COMEDY
    is superb!!! Honestly I wasn’t expecting this movie to be anywhere
    close to be impressive. Awesome Dialogues, Awesome Script, Awesome
    Cast, Best Comedy Movie of the YEAR!!! I think of the decade :-)……I
    encourage everybody who is reading this review to appreciate this movie
    by watching it in the theaters ! Another thing i would like to share is
    that, the movie is for almost PG13, yet I think 15+ age groups will be
    the suitable one. And couples, don’t miss the hilarious movie of the
    decade… AAAAA+++

    Cringe

    I have to say I am pretty shocked and dumbfounded that this film has
    received such positive feedback. In fact, 50% of the audience left
    within the 5 mins after the film had started, not only older folks but
    younger Pakistanis as well.

    The plot was choppy, the dialogue was raunchy, costumes were
    inappropriate, and overall NOT a family watch. Lets start with the
    jokes and one liners. They were highly in appropriate and 90% contained
    many references to adult content. There were numerous instances my
    friend and I literally cringed in shock at the one liners, for instance
    during the massage parlor scene, the bedroom scene with the father in
    law, and the affair scenes.

    The film is being marketed as a Pakistani family film, but the costumes
    were completely westernized and way to much skin bearing for both
    genders. I understand, glamor and fashion is part of the film industry,
    but it took Bollywood several years and burning of several cinema halls
    to get to the stage they are currently, hence Pakistan needs to slow
    down and concentrate on making good stories and plots rather than
    focusing solely on the glitz and glamor in this early stage.

    Additionally, there were far too many scenes promoting drinking and
    alcohol. I use the word promoting, because the perception was ”drinking
    and clubbing is cool”. There is already a sense of identity crisis
    among the American- Muslims living in western countries regarding this
    lifestyle, and portraying this image is further adding fuel to the
    fire. This is a great opportunity for the Pakistani Film Industry to
    create meaningful and beautiful stories that can be used to alleviate
    the negative image media has created regarding Pakistan and Muslims. I
    understand, slap stick comedy and glamor sells and is key to make
    money, but the film should have been advertised for what it truly is,
    an adult oriented comedy tailored for the younger/mature generation
    rather than a family film.

    Furthermore, the acting and plot development was mediocre. The actors
    did not maintain a consistent personality, and jumped all over the
    place. Having watched numerous Pakistani dramas, it was disappointing
    to see these well trained actors reading cheesy lines and acting drunk!
    The only actor that shined, brought real comedy, and entertainment was
    Bushra Ansari. She is absolutely a treat to watch on screen! She has
    perfect timing, delivery, and facial expressions and I thoroughly
    enjoyed her scenes! Regarding Humayun Saeed, quite frankly he had on
    way to much foundation than needed and did not suit the role. He is a
    mature and well trained actor, and needs to maintain his image as such.
    Hamza Ali Butt, generally being a good comedian was awkward yet fit the
    role. His personality did not stay consistent throughout the film and
    he turned into a sissy cry baby towards the end. Vasay Chaudry was just
    there, and Hamza Ali Abbasi, needs to focus on his over acting
    tendencies. Javed Sheikh also bought his over acting and over the top
    personality, and made one ugly drunk. The females were decent overall.

    In conclusion, I would give this moving a 1 star, solely based on the
    talent and dazzling personality brought by Bushra Ansari.

    Ansari and Sarwat Gillani were the *Stars of the movie. Hamayum, Hamza
    and Vasay were also good, but Sarwat Gillani, Bushra Ansari and Ahmad
    Butt stole the show. Finally The film is being marketed as a Pakistani

    Very Good Comedy Movie

    Great acting and comedy movie. It is better than many Bollywood movies.
    It is better than Kis Kisko Pyar karoon by kapil sharma. Hamayon Saeed,
    Hamza Abbasi and all actors did a great job. A very good production and
    cinematography by ARY films. The story is good and there is flow and
    continuity in the story. There are no bad patches. The movie does not
    create any confusion for the audience. It makes you laugh and smile all
    the 150 minutes. It is a worth watching movie. There are few scenes of
    drinking which could have been avoided. There was no need of Russian
    girls in bikini dresses. Music is good and relevant but mostly Punjabi
    based songs.

    10/10….Brilliant Movie, Best Pakistani Mover Ever, Full of Comedy!!!

    10/10….Brilliant Movie, Best Pakistani Mover Ever, Full of Comedy!!!

    The story of ‘Jawani Phir Nahi Aani’ revolves around three best friends
    who are depressed about their lives owing to their wives and
    desperately want a breath of fresh air to live.

    In the wake of their ‘miserable’ scenario, Saeed, a US-based lawyer
    returns to Pakistan to add some masala in his friends’ lives.

    Also, in the film, veteran film actor Javed Sheikh will be seen as
    Mehboob Khan while Bushra Ansari and Ismail Tara are also in the film.

    According to the Box Office Asia website, which predicts and announces
    regularly on films earning business on box office, it was stated along
    with ‘JPNA’, four films had opened at the box office and after the
    release ‘JPNA; has collected a record breaking number of Rs 20 million.

    Early reports about the film indicated it crossed the Rs 15 million but
    on the first two days after the film screened at cinemas, it earned Rs
    20 million owing to the support assisted by cinema’s night shows. The
    houseful late night shows actually helped ‘JPNA’ break previous
    records.

    Its OK

    Its a good attempt as far as Pakistani cinema is concerned. The sets
    were great, acting was good by all the actors, music was fine,
    cinematography was wonderful however the plot was extremely weak. I
    found glimpses of Indian movies such as masti, house full and no entry.
    Despite the fact that we all should encourage Pakistani cinema but at
    the same time we need to identify the mistakes to make it a better one.
    I believe we should come up with our own ideas rather than copy pasting
    from different movies. That is the only way we can raise the standard
    of our movies or else actual cinemagoer will eventually get jaded by
    the monotonous scripts from different movies.

    Awesome Movie

    It is an exciting and worth watching movie, a full entertainment
    package. The best of all Pakistani movies produced so far. Specially
    humour content was of high quality and really amusing. Wasey Chaudhary
    showed master comedy skills with best and extempore dialogue delivery.
    I liked songs as well, however, minor choreography issues. It is a nice
    attempt by ARY Films and say good luck to complete team. Last word of
    advice, with such a great content you don’t need to show vulgarity to
    promote it in media. I think some scenes were over-vulgar and really
    not needed. I was never expecting Pakistani Film industry flourishing
    so well.

    Excellent Entertainer

    Jawani Phir Nahi Ani is to date one of the best comedy movies ever made
    in the history of Pakistani Cinema.

    At first I got impression that it is copied from Indian Movie ”Masti”
    where three friends annoyed from their marriages left their places for
    a ride of Masti and things going bad in the end but it was totally
    opposite to that.

    I can proudly say it is totally Made in Pakistan and keeps you laughing
    throughout the movie songs are cool and heavy star cast delivered what
    was expected from them. Now don’t waste the time guys get up and watch
    this treat in your nearby cinemas 🙂

    The best comedy movie

    Here is the thing, I Watched a Pakistani movie after a long time. That
    too on recommendation and insistence of a dear friend. Well it has
    certain aspects such as story is nice, dance is OK, sights/scenes
    selected are good and the best aspect is comedy. Comedy remains the
    dominating element throughout the movie even till the end. Cast
    selection is superb. Senior actors selected performed very good, all
    male actors remained equally good in performance while performance of
    some of female actors is also remarkable. At first it becomes difficult
    to judge that this really could be a Pakistani movie, but we are proud
    to say our Industry is improving day by day on a much faster speed. A
    nice and simple story. Overall its worth your time and money. Its
    really worth watching. Simply awesome. Recommended.

    Simply Awesome

    I asked my co-workers to recommend a Pakistani movie.

    JPNA is just Awesome movie.

    The movie has many hilarious scenes.

    Much more than expectation.

    Technically, it rocks with astounding and visually arresting
    cinematography.

    It was looking a normal story by trailer but it is superb movie The
    most good thing is every person in industry is supporting.

    And i think revolution of Pakistani Movies has begun. Keep giving us
    such quality movies.

    Do yourself a favor by seeing this highly emotional and feel good comic
    entertainer.

    I will be asking my co-workers for more recommendations after this one!

    Awesome!! fresh, witty and fun…have a blast of a time with JPNA

    JPNA…is a fresh new approach of comedy genre for Pakistan cinema, i
    was not expecting so much fun,its witty comedy was exciting to watch,
    consisting of superb performances, with a fine supporting cast of many
    old and new talent. The script and dialogue is razor sharp with
    many….LOL moment! .There is some fine inspiration from films like
    HANGOVER and SWINGERS but also consists merit for its own
    originality…its very superior to poor efforts from bollywood ,who
    constantly fail trying to imitate similar films from world cinema by
    making no constructive effort of their own…..JPNA rocks with top
    notch package of entertainment and will take Pakistan cinema to a well
    deserved level.

    laughter roller coaster!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yeh Jawani Phir nahi Aani!!!! Well what it takes to make a real spicy
    biryani, right ingredients mixed together with a touch of class. It has
    been the YEAR of turnaround in Lollywood, few years if some one says
    that will you a Pakistani movie???? Any moviegoer’s answer was obvious
    ‘yeh pagal ho gia hai’ if you ask same question now, answer is why not
    lets go. Before going to see YJPNA to be honest I was not expecting so
    much as it is a comedy, it really takes guts and courage to make a
    really good family comedy. The comedy standards in south asia has been
    , some below par one liners and that it. Secondly there was a general
    thinking that YJPNA is copy of Masti, so I was just thinking that it
    will be just another OK OK movie, but ……………. It’s neither the copy of
    Masti nor it has any low par dual meanings one liners , it’s a solid
    laughter roller coaster with lot of hard punching dialogues to some
    great scenes which will make you laugh laugh and just laugh. The story
    is about 3 persons who are married and having some issues with their
    wives. Where Hamayun Saeed joins the party as a bachelor and then the
    roller coaster laughter starts , zip zaps moves , twists and makes you
    so happy that any movie goer says no word cause he just enjoys the
    comedy scenes and outclass one liners having no dual meanings. From
    acting to music, everything is so perfect that you will just love the
    movie. From acting point of view everyone has done justice, Ahmed Ali
    butt,, Hamza, Wasay, Hamayun all of them are superb. The three wives
    along with Ayesha Khan plus Soha are also great. Soha specially really
    steals the show. Her dialogues delivery to her accent is excellent.
    Music also goes very fine along with the movie. Bushra Ansari, Javed
    and Ismail Tara are also as usual very good. JPNA is a must must watch,
    I am just thinking to see the movie again and again. It’s a biryani
    which you will love right from the first spoon to the last one.
    Laughter roller coaster is ready to amaze you so it’s already a super
    duper buster and may make some serious records on box office. If you
    have really forgotten how to laugh, go and watch JPNA you will forget
    when were you sad!!!! It’s a must watch Jawani Phir Nahi Ani!!!! Aisi
    movie pher nahi Ani!!!!!

    ”What is a cookar with gun in its hand called? Bang-Cock”

    Just like last year on Eid-ul-Adha, we were treated by Na Maloom
    Afraad. This year on that same occasion comes another comedy with all
    the A-listers & boy, Is it a treat? So read on…

    Definitely not a movie to enjoy with family but instead with ”yaar
    dooston”. The male leads were all great in their roles as for the lead
    ladies, they were kind of there, with the exception of Mehwish Hayat
    and Sohai Ali Abro. Man that Sohai girl can dance!

    Those who are aware of the ‘Rubber Band’sitcom back in the day, knows
    just how funny Wasy Choudhry & Ahmed Ali Butt can be. Go in expecting
    the same. The Facebook sensation, Hamza Abbasi, not only looks but acts
    pretty darn good too. The trio reminded me of the men from Indian movie
    ‘Aamdani, Athani, Kharcha, Rupaya’ with latter actor portraying as the
    more mature of the lot.

    The devil here is Humayun Saeed, who is btw way past his prime since
    his age shows, still manages to entertain. Yes there are those semi-
    clad women, below the belt humor & cultural innuendos packed with
    hangover references, some decent songs especially ”Khul Jai Botal”,
    ”Fair & Lovely” & sound technical aspects.

    The similarities with ‘Masti’ end with their trip to Bangkok, rest is,
    well..different and extremely hilarious. Finally, is the film
    embodiment of Pakistani culture? No. Did the film exceed expectations?
    It certainly did for me, in a good way. Can we call it the post-
    revival of cinema phase? Pretty much.

    Best Urdu Comedy

    This movie is far better than any comedy movie ever made in Urdu. If
    you are familiar with famous dialogues and characters of Pakistani
    drama, movies and cricket, you are going to enjoy it more. The acting
    is good by all the actors specially Humayoun Saeed and Ahmed Ali Butt.
    Hamza Ali Abbasi has also performed well. Why the movie is making much
    money than Waar? Because it’s worth it. When there’s a good content,
    you should embrace yourself for the best time. And. This. My. Friend.
    is a really good content and a really good way to spend your time
    laughing and enjoying.

    Highly recommended!

    This movie Will make you laugh and you will be tempted to watch again

    Go and watch on big screen if possible. It is good for all audiences
    whether Indian or Pakistani as for as you understand Urdu/Hindi. You
    will definitely have lots of laughter. Sets, story, songs, humor every
    thing is just amazing. Acting is best and having seen lots of Bollywood
    movies on big screen recently this is one I am going to go back to see
    again. Most roles you would have seen on TV , have done justice with
    their acts on big screen. It is good to see Pakistani movies
    continuously getting better in last few years and in fact this one is a
    masterpiece. Some of the scenes are captured in Bangkok I think. You
    find some up-to-date social media stuff like selfies etc which is
    funny. It is mix of some well known faces like Javed Sheikh to some new
    and young faces which worked well.

    An Inferiority Complex of Bollywood.

    Too much hype was created for movie but it was not that good. Story was
    combo of 2-3 Bollywood movies like Masty,Housefull 2, story is quite
    average. Music is too poor,BGM is average as for comedy movie but not
    genuine,Bollywood’s famous tunes on funny situations.But overall songs
    and music is pathetic, you can’t understand the lyrics and what you
    understands is not worth listening, even in cinema you can’t tolerate
    the songs with pathetic music, lyrics and choreography. Acting of Ahmed
    Butt and Vasay Chaudhary is too good.Their Dialogue delivery and timing
    of punch lines uplifts the movie while Hamza was in movie only for his
    looks, fan following and friends. Overall its an average movie with
    adult comedy, not a family movie, Karachi to Lahore was far much better
    compared to it in every perspective.

  • aishazakOctober 22, 2015Reply

    loved it

    This movie is brilliant. When i went to cinema i don’t have that high
    expectations, i knew it was written by Vasay ch. And i like him since
    dolly k aye brat but seriously it was more like SURPRISE! SURPRISE!. I
    seriously don’t expect it to be that kind of huge. Amazing guys well
    done. Vasay you are my permanent favourite writer from now on and
    Humayon i am so sorry for underestimating you as an actor. Other then
    that if that mv remind you of some other movie don’t start saying its a
    copy lol Because copy and some sort of reminding is different from each
    other. Other then that they show such good comedy that one can easily
    forget that it also contain few bold scenes. Songs were really good and
    yes take movie as a movie and for entertainment and if u are such
    Sarray howay log with highly negative personality. Don’t go for it.
    Don’t go and come up with your blah blah comments cuz movie is to chill
    not to whine about. In the end i am not surprise that it has surpasses
    waar after all. Man it deserve it. The only problem of girls in
    somewhere showing skins

    can be control by cultural authorities. Its there duty to put some
    rules. Other then go and treat yourself with purely Pakistani type
    comedy which has no comparison in out side.

    A Pathetic Excuse For A Movie

    First of all I never wanted to watch this movie as I didn’t think I
    would like it. but I was made to go and due to its ratings I believed
    it might be good but after watching I have no idea why is it so
    over-rated, I mean it was just such a Waste Of Time for the following
    reasons:

    – First of All this movie had no Story what so ever, it was just a
    khichdi of Indian Movies Like: No Entry and Masti

    – Sohai although having so much more potential had no other line to say
    apart from ”Lets take a Selfie” & ”Pout Boys” and was acting like a
    wannabe Kareena Kapoor

    – Javed Sheikh was the biggest disappointment as he just kept on
    blabbering meaningless stuff as if he had no lines

    – Mehwish Hayat was just there to threaten people into falling in love
    with her and

    -Humayun Saeed should really say ”Bye Bye” to acting as he looks too
    old for the actresses and his dialogue delivery has gone from bad to
    worse – The one thing I hated more than anything were the cheap
    promotion of products like Tarang, Fair & Lovely and Voice Mobile

    This movie was something in which any person could act in as everyone
    was doing freelance acting, there was no direction or script to it.

    The only reason why I suppose it has worked is because of Hamza Ali
    Abbasi, Vassay Chaudhry and Ahmed Ali Butt who provided a bit of
    laughter otherwise this movie was Really Pathetic. If you really want
    to see a movie and laugh till your sides hurt Wrong Number will be a
    better option.

    superb comedy movie awesome movie ever made by Pakistani cinema

    I expected nothing from this movie when I went to see it. I thought
    it’s Pakistani so why not support it. The impression I had of the movie
    from the promotions was of a mediocre copy of a ton of Bollywood and
    Hollywood movies.

    But I had seen two Pakistani comedies recently – Na Maloom Afraad and
    Wrong No. – which were good so I hoped JPNA was something like that.

    But JPNA not only surpassed all my expectations, it surprised me and it
    took Pakistani film standard to a whole another level (just like Khuda
    Kay Liye did when it came out, and the same with Waar).

    The comedy material of this movie is highly original and entertaining
    thanks to the writer Vasay Chaudhry. I literally laughed out loud
    throughout the film. I actually appreciated the song breaks so I could
    catch my breath. 

    I was a bit reserved towards the costumes of the women and some of the
    drinking related scenes/situations. Not because I am not used to it,
    but because expecting it to be a Pakistani film, maybe it should not go
    down that road. But all in all what I did appreciate wholeheartedly was
    the type of comedy it was. Not forceful or sex-oriented, which movies
    with these type of topics tend to be. It was a good and clean comedy
    that you can enjoy with both friends and family. 

    The director Nadeem Baig did a very good job by holding everything
    together, getting the best out of the actors and making sure the movie
    gets a grand scale, and the movie paced smoothly, unlike Wrong No.
    which dragged a bit. It did not feel like or look like a low budget
    film, also because of all the actors who were superb in their acting
    and comedic timing. A special mention to Humayun Saeed who you
    definitely have not seen like this before. He was so good!

    Go watch this with an open mind and take it as it is: A comedy film
    (Maybe more suited for the Pakistani audience because a lot of jokes
    and one liners are directed towards the Pakistani people, but I believe
    non-Pakistanis will also enjoy this). Highly recommended.

    Oh my god – every moment is hilarious

    WOW – the way they started out the movie, those 4 minutes, captured the
    audiences for sure! I just loved it how they started out the movie and
    how they transitioned into it. Every line the characters say and the
    things they do, is just hilarious. You don’t know what will happen next
    and the things they’ll say. All the characters did an awesome job! All
    of their chemistry as coworkers was really nice to see. Hamza, Humayun,
    Sohai, Mehwish, and all the rest did an awesome job! Loved the songs!
    Loved the music! Loved the characters, storyline, script! and most of
    all, Loved the ending! I’d recommend it to everyone to watch this
    movie, of course, no kids.

    One time watch

    This is my 2nd review for a Pakistani movie. I have had this movie for
    long but did not get a chance to watch it. Recently watched Na Maloom
    Afraad and looking at high ratings for this movie, I decided to watch
    it. I was not able to enjoy the last 30 min or so of the movie due to
    poor audio. May be I’ll have to wait for a better print for the movie.

    Jawani Phir Nahi Ani (JPNA) movie is better than Na Maloom Afraad as it
    does have some really funny moments. Though very heavily borrowed 1st
    half from Masti and 2nd half from Housefull 2 and in between some
    inputs from No Entry as well.

    JPNA movie mainly depends on the talent of the lead actors and their
    comic timings. I don’t individually know their names but all 4 male
    protagonist acts well. Amongst the females Bushra Ansari was a show
    stealer rest all were ordinary

    The poor part of the movie is its Technical aspect. Music is also very
    ordinary. Second half also gets slow and repetitive

    Though I rate it 6 but I can neglect flaws and will give one extra i.e
    7 as the movie did provide me instances that are funny. Overall just a
    mash up of Bollywood movies but a decent watch due to good acting and
    comic one liners.

    Watched it twice. Laughed even harder the second time.

    More like …. the time you spend watching this movie, is not gonna come back !

    alright… so lets start first of all, I appreciate the entire revival
    of Pakistani cinema, but there is one thing film makers need to
    understand; and that is the film genre itself, the entire universe if
    you may; is not mature enough to commentate or make fun of itself. That
    being said, this movie is not for the one-off movie goer. The movie is
    chalked full of references from movies like ‘WAAR’ and ‘Mein Hun Shahid
    Afridi’. I referred this movie to my friends and realized 10 minutes
    into the movie that all the slap-stick comedy is going to fall flat on
    non-native Pakistanis. The pacing of the movie is terrible. The
    dialogue is loose and very poorly written. The editing and cutting is
    really fast and at some times feel very over-produced. This movie has
    absolutely nothing going on for it. The entire premise of comedy is
    based around a very sleazy premise. absolutely no story, no plot and no
    pacing…. wait I already said that 😉

    Compared to other good movies coming out of Pakistan like ‘Dukhtar’,
    ‘Bol’ and ‘Khuda k Liye’, the first one of which was actually shown to
    a foreign crowd at the Munich film festival and garnered unprecedented
    praise, this is movie is actually CRAP !

    A Surprisingly Funny Comedy with a Heart

    *** This review may contain spoilers ***

  • MarkDecember 29, 2016Reply

    What were they thinking!?!?!?

    I didn’t have much expectations from the start. I went in with zero
    expectations and this film still disappointed me.

    Most of the scenes are copied by Bollywood films. No originality.
    Vulgar. And I wouldn’t have the problem if it had made any sense. Films
    like these are not needed for the revival of Pakistani cinema. Humanyun
    Saeed does well, because he is a good actor. Ahmed Ali Butt is funny.
    And so is Hamza Ali Abbasi. The female leads are wasted. Vasay Chaudry
    disappoints. Overall, despite production values, and cheap humor, this
    is a forgettable experience. I really hope a meaningful Pakistani film
    comes out, which doesn’t try to copy Bollywood, and use vulgarity as
    USP to attract audiences. The acting of the female leads are cringe
    worthy. Mehwish and Soha do poorly, and rely on looks to impress, and
    fail.
