Product Description

Two best friends being convinced that they are not in love search for each other's love.

Review

There was lots of buzz about the movie as this movie was produced by ace Bollywood Actor Aamir Khan . very reputed for his acting and dedication towards his profession .I was very excited when the promos were out and straight away i decided that i m not gonna miss it .What a better chance for Imran Khan ( nephew of aamir ) for his debut in the industry ? and Genelia , a very famous actress in south india , has got a big chance to show her skills to the hindi audience as she has done only couple of movie before this and she is new comer in the bollywood --platform47.com

JAANE TU YA JAANE NA is a love story as well, but it's more of an Archie-Jughead-Veronica-Betty kind of a plot, set in the current milieu.jAANE TU YA JAANE NA works for a number of solid reasons and that's what the viewer carries home. A decent fare that takes you back to your adolescence, when friends seem to be the be-all and end-all.

Every member of the cast stands out, but the film belongs to Imran and Genelia. Imran has been presented as the boy-next-door and that works in his favor. He has screen presence and acts very well for a first timer. Most importantly, he looks the part. Genelia adds freshness to her scenes. What makes you take to Genelia is her spontaneity. Also, the mischievous look in her eyes conveys sorrow with equal ease. Wish to see more of her in Hindi movies! Manjari is a complete natural. She is very effective.

The group of friends Karan [as Rotlu], Alishka [as Bombs], Nirav [as Jiggy] and Sughanda [as Shaleen] are excellent. Each compliments the other well. Ratna Pathak Shah is highly competent. Jayant Kripalani and Anuradha Patel [as Genelia's parents] are sweet. Pratiek Babbar [as Genelia's brother] springs a pleasant surprise. He is flawless in an unconventional role. Ayaz Khan [as Genelia's fiancé] registers a strong impact. A good actor!

Rajat Kapoor and Kitu Gidwani [as Manjari's parents] are fair. Naseeruddin Shah is in terrific form. Paresh Rawal, again, is wonderful.On the whole, JAANE TU YA JAANE NA is a breezy entertainer which will be loved by its target audience the youth. --platform47.com

it has been a while since I sat through a film that made me smile, and at times even break into a hearty laughter. Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, did both. The film, by Aamir Khan Productions and directed by Abbas Tyrewala, is about love. Jaane Tu, in fact, is a very barebones film that you know the story of: Young people growing up, growing apart and growing in love. So we have Jai (Imran Khan) and Aditi (Genelia D Souza), who love each other, but lack the insight and maturity to accept it. And in the end of course, after twists and turns and many song and dance sequences with friends they find the courage to face up to the truth.

The film blends the slapstick with the subtle quite well and Abbas Tyrewala's debut directorial venture scores on that count. The strained relationship between Aditi and her brother is a case in point. If one moment you have them at loggerheads, screaming, kicking and fighting each other, you also have the brother leading his sister to his 'forbidden' studio-room for the very first time, just to give her some honest brotherly advice. There are also plenty of spoofs and not-so-subtle digs at masala films. The bottom line is, Jaane Tu is a nice, feel-good film --platform47.com

It was nice to see that no one gets the short end of the stick.

First of all, Genelia D'Souza (the female lead of Jaane Tu) is one of my favorite South Indian actresses. Not only is she gorgeous, but she posesses an amount of talent that is not often seen in Indian actresses. And she has without a doubt reached a new level of acting ability with this film. Second, Imran Khan (male lead) is probably the best looking guy I have seen all year. Since I've only seen him in Jaane Tu, I can't vouch for his acting ability - but for this movie, he is absolutely perfect. The two of them together work beautifully.
The music by AR Rahman is fantastic. The song Nazrein Milana does get old after a few hundred listens, but Kabhi Kabhi Aditi and Pappu Can't Dance are classics that I personally could listen to over and over again.
If you are a newcomer to Indian films, I definitely recommend this as a first watch. It is very relatable, well made, charming, and unlike most Indian films does not portray the female as a devoted (clingy) and dependant character; nor does it portray the male as a completely charmless guy who somehow gets the girl of his dreams; nor does it (and this is a big problem I have with Indian films) begin with a guy falling deeply in love with a girl after catching one glimpse of her (how unrealistic).
Rather, Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na deals with two friends who truly don't believe they are "right" for eachother. It deals with friendship and family and yes, love - but with a minimum of cheeziness and a maximum of fun. Did I mention it's hilarious, too? And eccentric - in a good way. In short, Jaane Tu is a modern, well-paced, well-written charmer that I recommend to everyone - Bollywood fan or not.

Watching JAANE TU... YA JAANE NA, I felt like I had a smile on the whole time. It wasn't because everything onscreen was that funny (even though there were quite a few funny bits), but because I had such a good time with the film and felt so damned pleased that I was watching it, if that makes any sense. JAANE TU... YA JAANE NA ("Whether you know it or not") is a contemporary Bollywood romantic comedy, and it sparkles. Mind you, in keeping with Indian cinema, there are still those soap opera scenes, even if, in this instance, these scenes don't feel so overwrought. Mostly, the appeal and sheer unaffectedness of the two leads carry the film, and effortlessly. I wouldn't be surprised if big things were soon popping for Imran Khan and Genelia D'Souza. I can't wait to see them again on film, and, hopefully, sharing screen time.

So this story begins and ends in that most romantic of places - the airport. JAANE TU is mostly a flashback movie, its narrative style borrowed from FORGET PARIS, as four friends regale their new acquaintance with the story of Jai and Aditi (for whom they're waiting). The laidback Jai and the fiery Aditi have spent all their college years together, as best friends. They're so close that it's natural for everyone in their circle to assume that they're in love. Aditi's wealthy parents even go so far as to hint that Jai would be part of the family after college. Jai assumes he's being offered a job; Aditi's parents are thinking more in the way of a marriage arrangement. Thing is, Jai and Aditi aren't in love, and they vehemently shut down this marriage talk. But they come to realize that their closeness might keep them from finding that special someone. Jai and Aditi arrange to play matchmaker for each other.

This was a major movie in 2008 in terms of popularity. I see its soundtrack won a 'Screen Awards' award for A.R. Rahman. It certainly has 3 memorable songs for me though I didn't like a few that wandered off into jazz improv. and swing at one point)
It is a charming movie about a close group of post-college friends negotiating their love lives. The two main characters (Aamir Khan's nephew Imran Khan), and Genelia D'Souza) are extremely good and have good chemistry, They play longtime close friends who don't know they are in love until they try to hook up with other partners.
Now this is a simple and not unusual plot but it is very well scripted and acted. The cast are not that well known and look like a group of ordinary people rather than a collection of models. They are natural and bring depth to their characters.
Also very watchable is Naseeruddin Shah who plays an effective comedic role as Imran's character's dead father, who had hoped his boy would grow up to be a fighter (but whose mother -Ratna Pathak- raised him to more Ghandian principles.)
This is consistently entertaining throughout and highly recommended. Imran looks not unlike uncle Aamir at a similar age and may well have a promising future too if this is a guide (uncle Aamir's company produced the movie too so he seems to be being groomed!).

The characters of the supporting actors are literally so well developed in the first 2 minutes of the film that I instantly bonded with them. Acting, Writing, music, dancing, cinematography and story are all very good. Unique supporting actors make a tremendous and delightful contribution to this film. They tell the story and they are part of the story. Who takes a snippy flight attendant, that does not like stories, on a date that is not a date, on her day off, to an airport she hates, and spends the evening outside in the heat telling her a story? Although the story is predictable it seems unpredictable and fresh because of all the clever surprises.
