“Unki mohabbat kamal ki hoti hai, jinka milna muqadar mein nahi hota”
Some love stories don’t have “happily ever after”, do Dev and Aysha get their “happily ever after”?
Directed by Pushpdeep Bhardwaj, Jalebi: The Ever Lasting Taste Of Love, is complicated yet sweet love story of Dev (Varun Mitra) and Aysha (Rhea Chakraborty), who bond and fall in love during Aysha’s trip to Delhi. Dev, an Old Delhi tour guide and Aysha, a free spirited bird who doesn’t like to be caged and also a budding writer, get married quick enough before even knowing each other truly.
That is post their marriage, they realize they both want different things from life and how their dreams are different too. One unfortunate incident leads them to part their ways only to bump into each other 7 years later, during a Mumbai-to-Delhi train. Therein, Aysha finds out that Dev is now married and also has a daughter, which leads her to question if Dev ever loved her?

This complicated story makes you go through varied of feelings and emotions, that might just make you quite mushy from the inside. Both the actors have done a great job in terms of acting and their chemistry is something to look forward to. Digangana Suryavanshi did a splendid job with her role. We wish to see her more on big screens now.
Kausar Munir and Pushpdeep Bhardwaj have done a pretty good job with the writing of transitions between flash backs and the current scenes. The transitions sail smooth in the entire movie, which is quite commendable. Adapted from the 2016 released Bengali film called Praktan, Jalebi is a journey you enjoy and wish the destination to never arrive.
Everything in the movie was designed around Jubin Nautiyal’s song Tum Se and it has worked in the favour of the film. The music of the film was hyped even before the release and it lived up to it. Yes, few songs don’t really have the recall value but some like Pehle Ke Jaisa and Pal level up for it.
Jalebi: The Ever Lasting Taste Of Love is worth your while.
We give it 3 stars with a huge kink.
