4.0 out of 5 stars Bollywood's equivalent to West Side Story 30 Dec 2005
By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Josh could be considered a Bollywood interpretation of West Side Story. You've got the two rival gangs, the forbidden romance between a boy and girl from each side, etc. It has a lot going for it, including Shahrukh Khan as one of the gang leaders, the beautiful Aishwarya Rai in a much different type of role than usual, and music by Anu Malik. I certainly enjoyed the movie, but I don't consider it a great film. Some of the music didn't appeal to me, all of the gang posturing eventually became annoying, and the romance at the heart of the story lacked the type of passion one usually finds in Hindi Cinema. That makes the film's title somewhat ironic to me, as I believe Josh (which is not the name of a film character) translates to something akin to passion.
The film is set in Goa, which gives the viewer a different kind of background than you usually find in Hindi films. The characters here are Christian rather than Hindi, for example, and I found that very interesting. Anyway, Goa's Vasco town is separated into two sections, one controlled by the Bicchu gang, the other by the Eagles gang. Prakash (Sharad Kapoor) leads the Bicchu gang, while Max (Shahrukh Khan) stands atop the Eagles – and the two men dislike each other intensely. Both groups are continually getting into rumbles, as someone seems to always be setting foot where he doesn't belong. When Prakash's brother Rahul (Chandrachur Singh) comes to visit, he is quite put off by the insanity of the rival gang nonsense, but he finds himself in the middle of a growing conflict after falling head over heels for Max's sister Shirley (Aishwarya Rai).

2.0 out of 5 stars Must be a matter of taste 23 Dec 2008
By Lyn
Format:DVD
My daughter and I are very much into Bollywood yet this one didnt hit the spot for us as it did another reviewer. Yes I have seen West Side story!
We actually found it a bit boring and not SRKs or Aishwaryas greatest roles. Rather low key and the dances didnt really grab us either.
The focus is on the tit-for-tat thuggery between 2 delinquent gangs (one headed by SRK who did a Fonzie impersonation but without his usual ability to bring something else out of the character)

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 31 Oct 2013
By TERE - Published on Amazon.com
I Really enjoyed this movie. Great job by all the actors. Especially Shah Rukh. He hasn't disappointed me yet. He Gives 100% in every role he plays. Just goes to show he really is King of Bollywood. This is a lot like West Side Story, only better I think. And as someone else here put it, to each their own taste.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this film! 26 April 2012

I really enjoyed seeing Shah Rukh Khan as a tough guy in this film. He played the part very well. The element of romance for him in this film was low-key. And even though the romantic aspect of his film roles has always been a highlight, having the romantic intrest low-key did not alter the powerful impact of his role in this film. His protectiveness over his sister was impressive. Aishwara Rai, of course, was beautiful and I loved seeing her in this film. The man who played her love interest did a wonderful job. The similarity to West Side Story was nice. I prefer this film over West Side Story. Shah Rukh Khan drew out strong sympathy in my heart for him at the end of the film. This is a powerful and wonderful film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must See 25 Sep 2009
By Jennifer Hopfinger - Published on Amazon.com
Director Mansoor Khan took the classic American musical West Side Story and turned it into a distinctly Indian tale. While West Side Story harkens back to America's past, Josh is relevant to contemporary India--with its many contentious ethnic and religious factions--and the film is therefore tinged with an immediacy and realism that's missing from the Broadway musical. Josh takes place in Goa, a city on the western coast of India that was colonized by the Portuguese, and many Goans are Catholic and have European names. The opposing gangs in this adaptation are Catholic and Hindu. Max (played by Shahrukh Khan) is the leader of the Catholic gang and Prakash (Sharad Kapoor) the leader of the Hindu gang. Prakash's sensitive brother Rahul (Chandrachur Singh), who wants nothing to do with the gang, falls in love with Max's sister Shirley (Aishwarya Rai). The Indian version interestingly diverges from the American original with a complicating subplot about a shameful family secret and the reverberations of colonialism. - The Bollywood Ticket: The American guide to Indian movies (Subscribe: The Bollywood Ticket)

Really liked this old film of SRK's with Aisharwarya Rai. Their dance number is really good. Story is much like West Side Story with that great Indian flair for musical drama.
