Jashnn is a story of relationships that goes awry in the realm of dependence and independence.
Akash (Adhyayan Suman) wants to become a singer but does not make any effort to become one. He lives with his sister Nisha (Shahana Goswami) who wants to give him a comfortable life and to do so she becomes the mistress of a rich man Aman Bajaj (Humayun Saeed).
Aman does not like Akash and insults him always. There is a turning point in the life of Akash when he meets Sara (Anjana Sukhani) who is the sister of Aman. She gives Akash the much needed self-confidence and make him realize what it is to achieve his ambition of becoming a singer.
The rest of the story deals with what happens to the relationships of the four characters involved.
Backed by a well written characterization Adhyayan Suman and Anjana Sukhani excel in their respective roles. They have got under the skin of their characters that make them look natural in their roles. Shahana Goswami as the doting sister and as the concubine of Aman is quite convincing. Humayun Saeed as the rich haughty man performs with elan. All others are quite adequate in their cameos.
This is a very well written story and the screenplay keeps you engaged all the time without any drop. The subtle nuances of the superbly delineated characters appeal to the finer senses. The presentation is the USP of the film. Directors Raksha Mistry and Hasnain S Hyderabadwala have the potential to become the best film makers of India.
Cinematography and audiography enhance the narration and makes the watching of the film into
an enjoyable experience. Music by Toshi Sabri and Sharib Sabri is an asset to the film.
Jashnn is a thoroughly enjoyable cinematic experience and is worth watching for the sheer mastery of presentation and narration.
