Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na - This is not a review

I really don know if it makes any utter justice by writing a review for a Hindi movie. For statistics sake, this was the first movie that I watched in a theater paying from my wallet. The previous one was Paheli, which was a team outing during my internship in PVR Gold class. Still its left to your great guts to read it.

It was a rainy evening in Bangalore and as usual I was stuck in inner ring road traffic. It was dull and commuters switched off their engines knowing that it would take a long to get the green going in our intelligent traffic system and make sure the hole in their pocket is small by saving some fuel. Breaking the silence was the radio station that was singing in my cab. There was this song right at the time for pep up the spirits. It was the peppy number Kabhi Kabhi Aditi Zindagi. It was so good that I decided to see Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na (जाने तू ... या जाने ना).

I talk about the film, its a Amir khan production. A simple, beautiful love story! I feel like its a movie from Prakash raj productions - a low budget hit. The way the entire movie is narrated by a group of friends is a good. Imran Khan ('Rats') looks neat and Genelia did not over react like some of her earlier films. The Good Night kiss and Good Bye kiss were a innovative try! Who knows may be a quick hit within the community. Naseeruddin Shah guest role was hilarious and the funny conversations that he tries making with his wife.

Thought I did not understand many of the jokes in the film, I managed to get few of them translated. Also its a good number of all the dumpsters to watch and learn some regional language. Also not last but least A.R.Rahman music score was the total highlight for me. Yet another reason for loving this film. But yeah waiting for my copy of DVD with subtitles.

I would give it a 7/10.
