Jaanemann the best movie to complement this year's string of releases of the comedy film Lage Raho Munnabhai, the emotional drama KANK, and the action flick Don. While almost all Hindi films are on the musical side with plenty of dance and songs regardless of the relevancy to the films, Jaanemann is the only Bollywood musical executed the Broadway style.
The cinematography has been creatively used to reflect story and development of the characters. Salman has been written off by the media continuously and each time he is back with a bang! Salman is definitely not a rock star, but a superstar! Nevertheless Akshay is never overshadowed, his character is a pioneer of such geeky personality in recent times. Preity, as always, is cute, and Anupam is so hilarious you keep asking for more! One does wonder how Salman has suddenly grown a full head of hair while Anupam's wig hairline is pretty obvious, but hey thats besides the point.
The unconventional lyrics are explained by the way the story unfolds. The songs are hummable, and dances feature plenty of beautiful phirangi girls, fortunately this time they are well clothed, a rare departure from the usual half clad babes. This film is not for the critics, but for the light-hearted seeking for a feel good experience.
