Breezy Entertainer !! Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na ....

Finally, a movie i was waiting for so long, i got to see yesterday. And man, it fulfills all i desired. Jaane tu ya....jane naa!!!. is very Young, fresh, breezy, mushy romantic movie. The genre everyone always likes. This is a new genre started by Imtiaz Ali. Not in Jab we met, but in Socha Na Tha. That movie was so sweet that it inspired a whole line up movies like JWM and many more including JTYJN.Yes its a kind of Socha Na Tha movie, but hey storyline is little bit similar thats it. This movie has its own space. Its own attitude. Its own freshness. And that works like magic. [please dont remember Thoda Pyar Thoda Magic, here, yuck movie, Chopras wake up!!]. Everyone was comparing this to Qayamat se Qayamat Tak, surely that movie was great at that time, and all time romance, this is surely today's movie with elements that youth will just love. Jay and Aditi are so likable.

Well, JTYJN is a story about Jay [Imran Khan] and Aditi [Genelia]. Freinds forever. In a group of 6 mad people. Always togather. But don't know, is it love?? College gets over. Parents are thinking of marrying them. BUt hey, 'we are just good friends' both says. Even both searches for a perfect life partner for each other, and gets one for each too. But as the tagline of the movie, says, 'when do you know its love?' ya, that is main storyline. Which the movie follows very smoothly.

Title sequence is another unique one, by Aamir perhaps. Because in TZP we had seen wonderful clay animation, now its canvas over her. People in love, are shown in canvas filter at titles. Background music is title song. Humm...great start. A group of friends going at airport to receive somebody. Which is not declared at start. A girl dont believe in this love stuff and starts bitching about that. So here all friends togather, tells her story of Jay and Aditi. A simple, but very good idea of story telling. This airport scenes comes in between of whole movie, and though connects story really well. Well, story goes on with college moments, young moments, party and so on. Movie is quite engaging from the very first sequence. Even cameos by 2 actors [no names please] are so hillarious. Fun moments are really fun in movie. Also everyone acts so perfectly, you cant just imagine that most of them are first timers. In second half, movie still goes flawlessly. OK it becomes little slow at little sad times of these little kids. BUt that is to develop a relationship. So all in all the pace is really commendable. The climax is so good so good that i cant stop thinking of that. OK the climax is very common, but hey, still it is different. And worth.

Imran Khan acts very well. This is his first movie, but he has sort of genes may be, that he is very confortable in his zone. Girls will flatten over him. Though he is not a muscle man, or cant dance, but so cute and handsome he is. On the other hand, why bollywood is missing over Genelia?? She is wonderful. ya, this is not a first movie of her, but she manages to show her own space. Emotional and similarly rioting scenes, both are well played by her. As a wild cat, she surely suits the role perfectly. One surprise is over here, Prateik Babbar as Amit, brother of Aditi. Little bit inspired by Akshye's character of DCH. But very well written role. I personly liked his performance. Ratna and Nasir are fun to watch with each other. So is Paresh Rawal. Jayant Kriplani and [idont know the name] are also good in titbit role. Love interest of Jay played by [idont know the name-2] is also good. Some of my fav scenes are : club riot, aditi's birthday with jay, scene betw. both before climax, songs, nazerein milana, pappu's fight with jay, climax. Wow,,,,,,,,i need to watch this movie again.

As a director Abbas Tyrewala, does a comendable job. It is his past experience of writing, which comes helpful in here. Editing is also good. Not a single dull moment. No useless dialogues, thanx to good screenplay. Ok sad moments could have been better. It became little regular stuff. AR Rehman is always a treat. Especially i loved Nazrein Milana Picturization, where music grows slowly in guitar strings. Pappu cant dance but everyone must be dancing to those dance steps. I wished 'Kahin to...' would have picturised differently. And 'Jane tu mera kya hai' song should be included. But length of movie is as crisp as the movie. 2.45 hours are enough.

All in all, a crispy fresh movie, a formula which can never go wrong. And its true overhere. A thumbs up to the director. Lets see, whats in store for competition. Collegegoers will surely love this flick, over Lvstry 2050 maybe. I will not judge it without watching movie. Lets see.

Dont miss this one !! Aamir you dazzle!!! Keep making movies keep dazzling!!!


  1. hey,

    Nice review. This was a "nice" film, worthy of a second time watch in the theaters. Noticed that you also felt that "Kahin toh Hogi" could have been shot better. Its a beautiful song & was not used properly.

  2. Hey Kalyan, Welcome and Thanks for your comment. This was Awesome movie. Jai and Aditi are now immortal. :) Yes, Kahin to hogi woh as I said, was a bit downer.
