The lives of Kuku (Varun Dhawan) and Naina, who were in love from childhood to youth, start changing within five years of marriage. The problems between them increase so much that both of them decide to separate. But their struggle starts when they have to tell this news in front of the family members. He comes to India from Canada to announce the divorce, but he has no idea that a bigger shock awaits him here. Kuku learns that his father Bhim (Anil Kapoor) is also planning to leave his wife Geeta (Neetu Kapoor). Not only this, but he also has another woman in his life. Meanwhile, Kuku’s sister Ginni (Prajakta Koli) is about to get married. But in the house where there is talk of two divorces, will any new relationship be started? The whole story revolves around this plot.
Anil Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor are seen enjoying their characters to the fullest. While Anil Kapoor takes the limelight in comedy scenes, Neetu Kapoor gets moist in emotional scenes. She looks perfectly fit in her character. At the same time, Anil Kapoor has looked very comfortable in the role of Bhima, who became the head of the family and a living example of patriarchy. Varun Dhawan and Kiara Advani’s presence looks good. Both have done well in the characters of Kuku and Naina, but their characters have become stronger only in the second half. Prajakta Koli has made her debut in Hindi cinema with this film and she looks confident in this film. Maniesh Paul has mainly got comedy scenes, in which he attracts attention.
The story of the film is average, but Raj Mehta goes ahead adding several issues related to relationships so that the story remains fresh. Makers cover almost every orthodox Indian problem. Mail ego hurts with working woman, thinking ‘everything will be fine after marriage’, thinking ‘marriage is done only to settle down’ and torturing married couple to give ‘good news’.. The film has many issues. But sheds light. Earlier in the film ‘Good News’ also Raj Mehta had put forward a very serious subject with comedy. But ‘Jug Jug Jio’ focuses on emotions more than comedy. Which also works in the negative of the film somewhere.
The dialogues of the film are written by Rishabh Sharma, which could have been worked on a little more. There was a scope to make the special comedy part a little more strong. Jai Patel’s cinematography is average and doesn’t add much to the story. At the same time, Manish More could have made the story a little more tight with editing.
There are four songs in the film and they are already creating quite a buzz. The special thing is that.. Naach Punjaban, Rangisari, Dupatta and Nain Ta Heere.. all the four songs set four different moods and look alluring on the big screen. Music of the film is given by Mithun, Kavita Seth – Kanishk Seth, Tanishk Bagchi, Vishal Shelke.

Like its characters, ‘Jug Jug Jio’ also has some flaws. Sometimes it looks strong and sometimes it is weak, but this story is about family and does not fail to keep you hooked till the end. They say that the end is good, all is well.. 3 stars to ‘Jug Jug Jio’ from Filmbeat.
