When I first saw the trailer for the movie, I was convinced that Jaane Tu.. would be just another teeny bopper, candy floss movie. The debutante Imran too has an uncanny resemblence to Faisal Khan - Aamir's ill-fated brother - which reminded me of the insanity that was Mela. But after being told by a number of people how good the movie was (esp compared to Love Story 2050) I decided to go watch it. The saga of watching it is a different story altogether. But I absolutely loved the movie!
Its fun, cute, hilarious, enjoyable and with 2-3 really good numbers and not one item number or any overt mention of sex or any Emran style kissing.. What's not to love?
The real star of the movie are the dialogues, the production and the editing. It takes you along and doesn't give you time to dwell on niggly details like Imran (im)mobile face and Genelia and Manjari's irritating acting. Naseruddin Shah and Ratna Pathak are hands down fabulous in their scenes together and everytime an actor starts singing (Jaane Tu in the beginning, Tu Hi Re by Rothlu, Jaane Tu in the end), you can't help giggling and then guffawing!
Imran is 100% star in the making and his chocolate boy looks seem great for his current age but unlike Shahid Khan, his bone structure indicates a very handsome old man too. None of the other kids stand out but then this is his star vehicle..
A definite must watch and then another watch..
