Review: Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Naa - A decent start....






Rating : 5.5 /10



Bollywood with its new wave of cinema is making me really happy. These movies are working and hence more and more directors are being courageous and coming up with movies far from the convention. And in between all of this, Abbas Tyrewala has gone back to the basics. This movie has a story which has been milked dry by bollywood. Its about the lead couple being the best of friends, confused about their love for each other and finally they realise what fools they were , so marry. Nothing new, fresh about it. But what is fresh is the look, the treatment, the music, the actors and thats the plus point of this movie.



I am in Chennai and I went to see this film, without any hope of getting a ticket. Fortunately for me , I got a ticket in black. I must tell you, the crowd in chennai and their passion , their involvement in this movie was unbelievable. The movie is timepass, but because of the crowd my enjoyment was amplified manyfold.



Technicaly the movie is good, in most aspects. The music is specially youthful and stays true to the image of the movie. The acting is strong from the veteran's like Ratna Pathak Shah, Naseer(Cameo), Paresh Rawal etc as well as the new comer Imran and south Indian success story Genelia.



In movies where the story is simple, the emphasis is on the screen play, the dialogues, the scene sequences and Abas Tyrewala has done a decent job on all of these. Hence the movie is enjoyable.



Not very good,its cliched but its decent. But because of the songs, the performances , this movie becomes enjoyable and in addition if u get a truly involved crowd in the theater, u will have a ball! Go for it and get your moneys worth.

sorry dude ...
but me think the movie was bad...

it was cliched to the core and had nothing new to offer... the only difference from any other flop launching vehicle for a star son/nephew was that none of the actors were hamming and music was good...

but this helped people survive those 3 hours and not enjoy it...

my ratng : 1.5/5

I was it was a decent watch..had few good scenes...I thought the youngsters did a good job..overall an average product..

i agree with wat arvind said...its just an average movie..nothing gr8.
its doing well just becoz of good marketing and ofcourse the name - Aaamir Khan behind it...with Lovestory2050 being a very bad movie, people dont have any other option except Jaane Tu... I feel Virus review is subconciously influencd by Aamir Khan.
To quantify it - i wouldnt spend more than Rs.75 for this film..
If i wud have paid more than 75 for this film, then i would call this film a bad film..And if i wud hav spent more than 100, then i wud term myself a fool to watch this movie in theatre..
