One of the good things that came out of the pandemic was the massive OTT boom. People got to see more and more good content from the comfort of their homes. This also encouraged Bollywood actors to make the shift and work on OTT content. The latest addition to this list is Kareena Kapoor Khan, who joined hand with Sujoy Ghosh for his OTT movie. Titled Jaane Jaan, the mystery thriller has released on Netflix today and the reviews suggest that the film is worth a watch.
Apart from Kareena Kapoor Khan, the film also stars Jaideep Ahlawat and Vijay Varma in key roles. Jaane Jaan is an adaptation of Keigo Higashino’s 2005 Japanese novel The Devotion of Suspect X. The audience who has watched the film so far has loved it and dropped positive reviews for Jaane Jaan online.
Jaane Jaan X review: What did the audience like about the film?

Review: #KareenaKapoorKhan is like an unputdownable book, a page turner in #JaaneJaan. The more you read her, the more mysterious she grows. I found myself mesmerised by her opaque turn in Sujoy Ghosh’s adaptation of The Devotion of Suspect X. https://t.co/U3WR4IX4ef

#jaanejaan is definitely one of the best thrillers in Bollywood #KareenaKapoorKhan #vijayverma are simply outstanding. Dejavu and similarities to #drishyam and #vadh are obvious. But it’s a fine watch. Riveting. Exciting. Outstanding. pic.twitter.com/eTFrihRQZ3

@EktaaRKapoor #JaaneJaan A riveting drama with twists and turns galore. Kareena makes the most apt OTT debut with a striking act; while Jaideep and Vijay are both powerful to the core. Sujoy’s taut writing and deft execution makes ‘Jaane Jaan’ a noir watch! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (4 stars) pic.twitter.com/pe2Ay8nyXN

Finished watching #jaanejaan on @NetflixIndia take a bow @sujoy_g @JaideepAhlawat @MrVijayVarma #kareenakapoor for a fab adaptation of #Higashino‘s Devotion of suspect X. Superb acting and direction. True to the book. Thank you. What a treat.

A Good film, insane Cinematography & well acted across the board… the only issue is the climax – wraps up too fast & you don’t feel satisfied by the ending, at least for me.

I was genuinely addicted to The Devotion Of Suspect X by Keigo Higashino. Although, Drishyam was a good attempt but some creative choices left me disappointed. I’m glad an official adaption is here in form of “Jane Jaan”. Great review by @jammypants4 #JaaneJaan #netflix

Plot of the film
The mystery thriller revolves around a single mother and her daughter. They live a happy life until an investigation opens up about her estranged husband. The woman tries to cover up the murder with the help of her neighbour, but does she succeed? That’s something you will need to find out.
Should you watch the movie?
Watching Kareena Kapoor Khan on the screen is always a treat but when it gets combined with stellar performances by Vijay and Jaideep, you are in for maximum entertainment. Sujoy Ghosh has made a film that will keep you hooked, as suggested by the reviews for Jaane Jaan on X.
