Hi Nanna: A Sentimental Journey through Love and Family Dynamics | Movie Review

Review by Kausalya Suharika R

Hi Nanna unfolds as a sentimental and romantic drama helmed by Shouryuv. The movie boasts a formidable cast, with the charismatic Nani and the talented Mrunal Thakur leading the way. Adding depth to the narrative, the supporting cast includes the endearing Baby Kiara Khanna. The musical dimension is skillfully handled by Hesham Abdul Wahab, whose compositions contribute to the emotional screenplay of the film. As the story navigates through sentimental and romantic nuances, the synergy between the powerful cast promises an engaging cinematic experience, offering viewers a captivating journey through emotions and relationships.


The movie starts with an awesome dedicated dad looking after his daughter, and everything seems pretty good. But here’s the twist – he never talks about the mom. Even though the daughter gets all the love and attention from her dedicated dad, she’s still curious about her mom. Then, out of the blue, their golden retriever named Pluto, like Tommy in ‘Hum Apke Hai Kaun’ brings an unexpected turn into their life. And that’s when things start to get interesting. The story unfolds around how this new addition shakes up their peaceful life and what it means for them.


– Cast: Nani and Mrunal Thakur have given their career best performances in the emotional and romantic scenes. Jayram and the entire cast, including Yashna’s mother, delivered outstanding performances.
– The poetic dialogues that are truly missed in the present day films.
– Hesham Abdul Waha’s music stands out.
– Baby Kiara Khanna played the role like it’s not her first rodeo. Mastered every expression and every scene.
– The romance in the movie is well screen-played.


The characters appear to be reminiscent of the 1980s era, and the story-line feels like a remake of an old movie where characters conveniently forget their past for the sake of the plot. Jayaram’s character seems underutilized, and Mrunal Thakur’s role appears to be a misstep considering her previous performances. The hero is praised for his seemingly flawless character, but it is marred by misogyny. His concern about his 6-year-old daughter potentially having a boyfriend takes precedence over addressing her worries. Furthermore, he inappropriately takes photographs of a woman without her consent, raising ethical concerns within the narrative.

Overall, the movie is a remake of the old 1980s movie where the heroine conveniently forgets for the sake of the movie. The film falls significantly short of being embraced as a coherent narrative; instead, it resembles a fairy tale with misogynistic undertones.

This opportunity could have been utilized to portray more realistic characters, depicting the challenges that parents with a child needing support typically face. Some research into real-life experiences could have added authenticity. While movies aren’t expected to be documentaries, the portrayed characteristics lack moral grounding and fail to provide suitable inspiration in 2023.

Rating: 2/5
