Such a poor attempt!
I do not understand what was the need to re-make a classic without doing the home work. my second language was Urdu and it was so disturbing to hear the word Sangeet twice, at the start of the film, instead of Mouseeqi.

Aishwarya should have also taken diction classes for the language when she thought of brushing her dancing skills.

JP Dutta has come up with a utter disappointment for the lovers of Urdu language in form of Umrao Jaan. And wasn't the attraction between Umrao Jaan and Nawab Sultan based on their love of poetry. All I remember was one couplet. Phew!

We all know Aishwarya Rai was crowned Miss World....but isn't she an actor now? So she should leave her crown behind and practise her acting skills more. I mean she didn't even get the word Khuda right in the film. And what was about trying sound like Rekha when she and Abhishek were parting ways? Strange bouts of husky voice.
