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.
