The Long Take

Sep 21 2023 • 23 mins

Jaane Jaan, director Sujoy Ghosh’s Hindi-language adaptation of the Japanese bestseller The Devotion of Suspect X, is a competently made thriller with a hint of playfulness.

We discuss the trio of central performances by Kareena Kapoor Khan, Jaideep Ahlawat and Vijay Varma, and talk about the change in perspective that Ghosh has introduced in his adaptation.

We also dissect the other changes the movie makes to the source novel, most notably the ending, which is toned down substantially.
