Jaane Tu ya Jaane Na

Over the years the Kapoors & the Khans are reigning the bollywood. The recent example for this fact is the new comer Imran Khan, who is introduced through the movie, 'Jaane Tu ya Jaane Na'. He is the nephew of talented filmi personality Amir Khan, who is these days spending much time in giving promotions and publicity works for this film. Moreover he is also the producer of 'Jaane Tu ya Jaane Na' and even these days the hang over effect of 'Taare Zameen Par' has also not melted fully...Anyway the business tactics has worked out well, the film has created a good opening among the public.

Genelia D'Souza who acted in films like 'Boyz', 'Santhosh Subramanyam' etc is the heroine of this movie. 'Jaane Tu ya Jaane Na' deals with the relationship between two friends played by Imran and Genelia. Their affection, quarelling, misunderstanding, agony, dislikings etc are shown here without any gimmicks.

Though we have seen many films dealing with friendship related themes, here the new director, Abbas Tyrewala has told the story in a different way. The way in which the hero's companions telling the whole episode one by one like a fairy tale to one of their friends, creates a curiosity both on the latter part and on the crowd. The mother-son sentiments reminds us the film, 'Aashique', but the characterization of father played by Nasrudeen Shah is appealing and his gestu
res is unique. Combination scenes involving heroine's brother is also good.

'Jaane Tu ya Jaane Na' has got many scenes involving birthday get-togethers, DJ parties and its dances, dating etc that reflects the real north indian culture. The ending portions leading to the climax is cinematic, but since sky is the limit for this medium, we can take it as the liberty of the director.

A.R.Rehman has delivered some good songs for director's lyrics, it goes well with the mood. Not very big to be promoted, the new comer actor with his chocolate face has also performed as far a
s he can. Genelia is a good choice for such a role; one can't forget her excellent performance in the film, 'Santhosh Subramanyam'. All other artists has done their roles well.

After the show, while coming out of the theater, a man beside me was talking to his friend,
"...hey, this is only a remake of malayalam film, 'Niram'...whats new in this " if somebody not interested in seeing the film, asks you to brief the story of this film in a line, such a comment mentioned above is partly accepted, but you should also think how the new director has conceived the film without boring using a bunch of young artists.

'Jaane Tu ya Jaane Na' is a film that can attract those people with youthful mind...

Rating : 4 / 5
