5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing Bollywood Musical Entertainer 11 Aug 2009
By Mitun
Format:DVD
The movie's a refreshing but straight forward indian love story with a hint of good comedy. The movie contains soothing songs, sung beautifully by Sonu Niigaam (Brilliant Indian Singer). The musical score, which is one of the top Bollywood scores of 2006 is provided by Anu Malik.

The lead actors, Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan performed brilliantly as the two main characters. Especially Salman Khan, who is a show stealer in the movie performing comic and emotional scenes with ease. The lead actress, Preity Zinta performed well but did not get enough screen time and was relegated to a supporting character.

The cinematography by Sudeep Chattergee is eye pleasing and the direction by debutant director, Shrish Kunder (Husband of Farah Khan who is the director of Main Hoon Na and Om Shanti Om) is impressive.

The movie was released during the same time as Don (Starring Sharukh Khan), which was not a good movie but shockingly successfull at the box office. On the other hand, Jaan-E-Mann, which is very underrated but a far more superior movie, suprisingly failed at the box office. It really surprises me how a critically acclaimed and a quality movie like Jaan-E-Mann was ignored and not appreciated by the majority of the audience.

I received the brand new original sealed DVD early. It was purchased for only 3.21 (including shipping), which is a bargain.

The picture and sound quality of the DVD is excellent.

It is a must buy for both Bollywood fans and fans of universal cinema who enjoy elegant romantic comedies accompanied by good music.

The start of this movie was a bit chaotic and silly (e.g. unnecessary portrayal by the usually superb Anupam Kher as a dwarf and then a chorus of dwarfs coming in through a mock hypnosis scene). Added to this Salman Khan's character at the start is a complete ego-centric jerk. While this is part of the plot he wasn't great fun to hang out with. All this meant that the 29 year old I was watching it with gave it away early.
The story involves an egocentric actor who cuts off from his wife to ensure his movies success (as marriage makes him unmarketable apparently) She divorces him. He hatches a plan to avoid alimony payments by encouraging her marriage to someone else (a nerd who had a crush on her in college). His plan largely works but he realizes he still loves her and sees his mistake and does the right thing. Who will she end up with...?
Akshay Kumar's arrival and more on-screen from Preity Zinta lifted things. Anupam Kher turn up again (not as a dwarf this time) when the action moves to New York for most of the movie.
Akshay was excellent throughout going from shy nerd to handsome guy with a great heart. I used to take or leave Akshay but I find that assessment seems to depend on the style of the movies. He is great in romances but I don't like him doing hammy idiots in comedies. He is good in action movies - though they aren't my style so much and I haven't seen him in this genre as much.
To an extent the same is so with Salman. If his characters go whinney or egocentric as they can often do I just don't relate. Yet he can do light romance with heart and even more subtle comedy (e.g. Salaam Namaste) quite well. His dancing seems to vary a lot too from a bit awkward to quite good.

Sorry but this is true for many hindi movies, bad copy of bad hollywood movies. you can waste you time for at least 3 hours each day of your life and never finish this long list of pirated stories;
what is amazing is there are people who enjoys watching same stuff on every movie and still be entertained. no creativity!!! these producers and directors who exploits the mind, corrupt the society in every sense possible; but for most folks in our developing countries it has been the only source of entertainment(so bit of social service). main aim of these movies are to drain emotionally , dull intellect and kill time.
watch one movie and you get the idea.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Would you like to be the face of Booboo Diapers?" 2 Mar 2008
By H. Bala - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Man, it's been a good while since I've seen a good Bollywood film, and not for lack of watching. So I'm glad I saw this film. JAAN-E-MANN, released in 2006, qualifies as a good Bollywood film. Plus, it's got one of my favorite Bollywood actresses in it (that would be Preity Zinta).

Here's the plot: The charming but irresponsible and ever struggling actor Suhaan Kapoor (Salman Khan) has been very negligent with his alimony payments and now finds himself being forced to pay one huge lump sum. With his dwarven co-conspirator Bonny, Suhaan concocts a plan wherein his ex-wife Piya's awkward old college classmate - whose name is Agastya Rao(Akshay Kumar), and now a NASA astronaut - would end up marrying Piya, thus ridding Suhaan of all financial obligations to his ex-wife. You see, Agastya (or Champu, as Piya used to derisively call him in campus) has always been in love with Piya, and now looks to catch up on old times. To ensure that everything goes well, Suhaan accompanies Agastya to New York, where Piya currently dwells.

Turns out, though, Agastya requires more hands-on help than first thought, as he becomes absurdly clumsy and goofy in Piya's pesence. So Suhaan begins communicating with him via an earpieced radio device, instructing Agastya in what to say and do in his outings with Piya. It works, and Piya and Agastya become good chums.

"Are you ready to fall in love...again?" is this film's tagline. This question seems to apply most to Suhaan, who, in the midst of mentoring Agastya, begins to fall anew for his ex-wife. Then, even as Piya and Agastya continue to get closer, the inevitable Bollywood twist surfaces, which pretty much shatters Suhaan's original scheme to smittereens.

I probably say this each time I comment on a Bollywood film, but newcomers should know that these suckers are fairly long viewing experiences. For instance, JAAN-E-MANN's running time is just about 3 hours. It's hard to steer clear of the inane daffiness which is such a staple of Bollywood. So, be aware, that, often, the first half is devoted to silly, lame-humored goings-on, while the post-intermission stuff tends to go the soap-opera route. JAAN-E-MANN runs true to form, with much of the first half invested in a busload of reminiscing (and scenes with a dwarf, which is supposed to be funny) and the second half indulging in unabashed sentimentality and over-the-top dramatics (not so many sightings of the dwarf, post-intermission). I've gotta confess that I enjoyed Suhaan's various masquerades in the first half, whether it's as Elvis or Zorro or a massively-thewed club girl. And it's a kick seeing him getting a modeling gig promoting Booboo Diapers.

But, listen, it's not really so much about the plot, which is tired and one whose resolution you could see forty-two miles away. No, what makes JAAN-E-MANN (meaning, "Beloved") such a surprise treat is the level of visual creativy, vibrancy, and liveliness injected onto the screen. Technically, JAAN-E-MANN is irrepresible and irresistible. It's also just a bit off-center. JAAN-E-MANN puts you on notice with its opening, improbable scene of Akshay Kumar in outer space. From there on, the movie becomes one huge flashback story as Kumar's character begins to speak of his good friend Suhaan. And let's not forget the flashbacks within this flashback, some of which are colorfully narrated thru the vehicle of a musical number. Characters from the "present" aren't chained to their reality as they're free to walk around (and even interact) with characters from the past. One amusing example is the present-day Agastya telling an extra to "Please clear the frame" so the camera can focus on the flashback Agastya version. Also rather inventive are the intros to these flashback scenes and to the musical numbers (and, as mentioned, sometimes they're the same thing).

And, yes, the film does benefit from the presence of big name Bollywood actors. Akshay Kumar's roles are usually of the cool, flashy variety. Here, he plays against type as a nerd (which is pretty much what "Champu" means) and successfully pulls it off. Even when he becomes "hip" under Suhaan's tutelage, Akshay retains a good modicum of dork. And, while his goofy laugh did grate on my last nerve, there's no denying that, when the time came for his dramatic moments, Akshay was very effective. On the other hand, the muscle-bound "star" of the show, Salman Khan, doesn't stray too far from his standard part, that of a cocksure and callous jerk. Except, as Suhaan, he's actually likable by the end, managing to exude something that resembles sincerity. Meanwhile, the gorgeously cute Preity Zinta (the main reason I got this movie) turns in yet another rock solid performance, even if her character is underdeveloped and she sees lesser screen time than Kumar and Khan. But at least she's spiffily wardrobed.

JAAN-E-MANN is also lifted by the evocative score and the great soundtrack. The six musical numbers are wonderful and perfectly convey the mood and, a bit shockingly, they even propel the narrative forward. So, all praise to composer Anu Malik. The elegant, achy-romantic "Ajnabi Shehar," especially, is a song I've been replaying for the past few days.

In watching this film, you could sense the ghosts of Cyrano de Bergerac and Roxanne. But that's okay, it's simply too good a premise to not borrow. But while JAAN-E-MANN might owe a nod of thanks to those two films, it needn't take a back seat to anyone in the way of cleverness or imagination. The story is predictable, but the way it's presented isn't. The images onscreen are frequently vivid and stunning. While I wouldn't go as far as to call it a visual masterpiece, I will say that I think it's simply awesome cinematography. And, with the stars making the most of their roles in a hackneyed romance, JAAN-E-MANN ends up being a film worth watching.

Huh. One thing, though. There's a key subplot involving a stack of letters. What I'm wondering is why calling on the phone or messaging thru the Internet weren't used as alternatives?

4.0 out of 5 stars Shaky start but strengthens into decent Bollywood romance 24 Feb 2009

Salman's character wakes up to himself and becomes more likable as this transformation progresses and there is good camaraderie between Akshay and Salman, and also between Preity and both males.
Salmans character dresses in costumes a bit to hide identity and there is a bit of fun with him dressed as Zorro, Elvis and even Marilyn Monroe (looking like as hooker with attitude but oddly sexy....!)
The romantic triangle and Salman's salvation go well and the movie settles into an overall entertainer. There are some catchy tunes and Ok dance numbers too.
I think its anywhere between 3 1/2 and 4. It seems to be generally rated at average to a little above average on most Net sites.

Really a fun and entertaining film. Loved everything about it. Music was great - acting was superior. I laughed through most of the movie especially when SK was in various disguises - just hysterical. I like the NYC setting - SK's comedic timing is impeccable which is what he does so well. I thought the plot was executed well, and the ending was cute ! Watch this one with a bowl of popcorn and enjoy !

Enjoyed this movie very much as it has all my favourite actors in it- S.Khan, A.Kumar and P.Zintar. Salman Khan played his character very well as usual - charming,irresponsible,funny and so gorgeous! Akshay Kumar played an awkward nerd and there were several scenes with Salman Khan that were absolutely hilarious.
All the songs were okay, none that was really memorable or outstanding. Overall a very good movie.
