Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na
Title: Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na
Cast: Imran Khan, Genelia D'Souza, Ratna Pathak Shah, Naseeruddin Shah, Anuradha Patel, Ravi Vaswani.
Its the eternal story: Imran and Genelia are Best Friends Forever, and while everyone assumes they are in love, they certainly aren't. Or are they? I will let you to watch the movie and love it for yourself!
1- Great acting by and amazing chemistry between Genelia and Imran.
2- Amazing casting coup of all the parents: Naseer and Ratna (a husband-wife duo I love love love), Jayant Kriplani (Yay!) and Anuradha Patel (adoration and applause), and Rajat Patel and Kittu Gidwani. Kisses to the casting director!
3- Prateik Babbar: Raj Babbar and Smita Patil's son in a small but adorable role as Genelia's brother. Acts well, and looks remarkably like both his parents. I want to see more of this guy, as much as I want to see more of Imran and Genelia.
1- Someone was suffering from a Harry Potter hang-over (not that it is necessarily a bad thing). We have deceased folks (Naseer) walking in their portraits. We also have the hero dreaming about who he thinks is his dad, but turns out to be himself by the end of the movie. heeh.
2- A paper-thin plot. Because the story is only so much, despite all the great acting and fun all around, some scenes felt a bit repetitive. If it was edited from 2.5 to 2 hours, it'd work better than it does already.
