Thanks, TJ!

I am one of those people who chose to believe that Gautham Menon actually wanted to go with the endings of Gharshana and YMC but chose to cater to the Tamil audience with a sad ending. I usually like films with saccharine endings unless [SPOILER ALERT] it's something like a Guatham Tinnanuri film, where a happy ending would betray the rest of the film.

Still felt there was potential for [SPOILER ALERT] Sharwa to end up with Varsha Bollamma. Don't know why the director shut that option down completely with Sam lying to her. Of course, that would've robbed us of the ending scene where Sam leaves in tears, but still...would be nice to know that he had moved on after subjecting himself to unnecessary torment.
Let us address the elephant in the room before we go any further: Jaanu is not as good as '96, the acclaimed 2018 Tamil movie by the same director starring Vijay and Trisha. Does that mean Jaanu is a lousy movie? Not at all - far from it.

Director C Prem Kumar's story is about the effects of one's first love. It is about the lasting shadow it casts upon one's life. When looked at through that specific lens, '96 looms as a massive specter over Jaanu while simultaneously being a source of warmth and nostalgia to its viewing audience. Jaanu, however, isn't a film that accepts that it....
