Njan Steve Lope has been made with no commercial considerations in mind and does not cater to any specific section of the audience.It is directed by noted cinematographer Rajeev Ravi, whose vision about the life of his characters is of paramount importance.The film revolves around Steve (Farhaan Faasil), a youngster whose life is all about his friends, booze, WhatsApp, the girl in his neighbourhood and college. He has been brought up in a well to do home, his father being a high-ranking police officer.Everything seems to be going well for him until the day he witnesses an incident that changes the course of his life.
The overpowering, venerable kind of innocence is abandoned for eternity. Lopez, the college student and son of a police officer is innocent in his own way. His innocence is expressed as his ‘indulgence’ in the bathroom while ogling at a woman, the charming wife of his neighbour. Later he would meet her outside and smile at her ‘innocently’. There is a girl who raises his pulse to breaking point; but whenever he would meet her he would not open up, but would just smile innocently.
Farhaan is comfortable as Steve Lopez. He is confident that being the son of an influential father means no harm can come to him, but this same fact makes him feel guilty and angry in the later stages.Ahaana makes a desperate attempt to be something more than a pretty face, and she succeeds to a certain extent. But her character does not have the layering that Farhaan’s character has.
Njan Steve Lopez is a bold personal film by Rajeev Ravi and crew
