The film is a complete package of commercial musical romantic drama where the story is predictable jealousy angle due to competitive profession popping out in between the two lovers destroying their marriage admits several twists, love, hatred, success & failures. It will empathize the audience with the true cinematic insight of distilling emotions emoted on the silver screen.
Zubeen Garg and Parineeta Borthakur proves to be the major USP of the film. The film primarily revolves around the lead character, essayed by the heartthrob of Assam, Zubeen Garg. It’s actually him who gives Gaane Ki Aane that extra sheen and also a scene stealer who excels in his role. Zubeen Garg as Neel, an earnest and broken shines as a performer. He has completely gone into his character profoundly which helps him to bring out the actor within himself. It’s a delight for his to watch him on screen. Whereas Parineeta Borthakur as Madhumita looked extremely gorgeous. Her character being vulnerable yet graceful balancing the conflicting feelings of both happiness and unhappy is appreciable. One of the standouts being Rimpi Das as an obsessed lover of Neil, Ragini outshines with her virtuosity and inner vehemence traits to build her character like that. Another standout is Hiranya Deka, who plays HD, Zubeen’s best friend and secretary in the film desire a special mention. He performs with so much of coherence and ease. The director, Rajesh Jashpal himself acted in the film. He as brooding yet is having a guardianship quality as a non-Assamese brother makes his presence felt.

The screenplay of the film falls flat be its pace, impact, and narration. It needs to be crisp at parts. Dialogues seem to a bit over edge dramatic but apt for the musical drama. While the film’s cinematography is satisfactory yet lacking focus definition at times and the film’s editing is good. Lastly, the music by Zubeen Garg is very much apt with the progress of cinematic narration. It’s very impressive with a steady flow of melodious emotions. Each song of the film is an auditory delight especially Gaane Ki Aane (Title Track) and Janu Janu. Overall, every department has done its bit to enhance the film.
The story has a striking similarity with Amitabh Bachchan-Jaya Bhaduri starrer Abhimaan and Aditya Roy Kapur-Shraddha Kapoor starrer Aashiqui 2. Apart from few glitches, the film holds the find idea of a musical romantic drama interwoven with strong emotional quotient and addictive music. A change for the better of Assamese Film Industry can be seen with the release of many such new movies.
