It is presented under the banner of N.K. Production which is one of the oldest and popular production house that has delivered many good audio and video films and albums so far. It is a low budget movie which is being prepared as part of an experiment to enhance the current grooming situation in the Assamese Film Industry and various digital technology is brought to use to cut down the cost but at the same time the story and performance of the characters were more focused so as to make it an enjoyable experience for all the people of Assam and specially those who are regular viewers and fans of the widely popular Jaanmoni Bihu video album series.

Jaan is an orphan child whereas Moni belongs to a rich family. As usual, Utpal Das is seen on a static role and did not get much focus in the long two and a half hours of the film duration.

Jaanmoni Feature Film Story
As Jaan did not belong to any well-to-do family as compared to Moni, they both faced opposition from different quarters but not withstanding any threat, they both decided to tie knots and lead a happy married life together. Moni accepted Jaan as her life partner expressing her faith with a dialogue that sounds as 'Toi kakhot thakile mur kaaloiku voi nalage..' which means that 'She is not afraid of anyone if he stands behind her'. But unfortunately for them, they had a spat between themselves and broke up soon but Moni could not stop thinking about him and led a very miserable life therefrom. There are many incidents that followed next and ultimately both re-unites and thereby draws a happy ending.
Jaanmoni Feature Film Review
Not to add any more spoilers, we recommend you to go and watch it on your own and like all other Jaanmoni VCD albums released so far, you might appreciate this one too which is now presented as a complete film and can be watched on the big screens. The shooting of the film is done in some beautiful locations in different villages of the state and includes many good assamese songs such as 'Ki Je Koru Hai', 'Kumal Kumal Saonire', 'Nila Nila Dusokute' etc. Although it was a good effort from Rajesh Bhuyan to bring forth a good show which is based on Krishna Bhuyan's love story, but as usual with other assamese films in the industry - Janmoni too had to face the sharp words of the critics who pointed out many mistakes which they thought to be illogical or badly scripted. For instance, one critic had strongly expressed his disappointment over the costumes of the different characters and reviewed them as the worst and irrelevant to the actual village lifestyle. For instance, he pointed out that it was illogical that any village girl would walk in to the paddy field to deliver tiffins or Jalpaan by wearing a new and bright Mekhela Sador which was seen to be repeated more often even in the rainy scenes. Some approved the performance of the various actors and actresses who they believed has done considerable job on their part but in turn commented that the script was not as good as what could have been generally expected.
