Title: Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na
Starring: Imran Khan, Genelia D’Souza
Direction: Abbas Tyrewala
Imran Khan – another chocolate hero, another Khan, enters Bollywood, this time introduced by none other than the chocolate hero of the late eighties (now quite transformed) Aamir Khan, who produced this film. Imran Khan, the hero also happens to be Aamir’s nephew. The film also marks the entry of south Indian actress Genelia D’Souza to Bollywood.
There is little that is new in the story of this film. Young couple, great friends in college, unsure if its love, try to set it each other up with others, and eventually come together. The positive of this film lies in the “treatment” and the Director, Abbas Tyrewala (this happens to be his debut film) deserves plenty of credit for this. He has turned a relatively common theme into an engaging sequence of events, interspersed with trendy numbers by A.R. Rahman, and plenty of comedy that delightfully blends with the story line. The entire film is shown in flashback as a bunch of good friends narrate the story to a newcomer to the group as they wait for the lead couple at the airport. Naseeruddin Shah and Rathna Pathak Shah as the heroes’ parents and Paresh Rawal in a brief cameo as a cop are truly hilarious.
