Jhoom Barabar Jhoom - Movie Review

Movie - Jhoom Barabar Jhoom
Director-Shaad Ali

Date of Release - 15th June 2007

Music Director - Shankar Ehsaan Loy
Actor-Abhishek Bachan, Preity Zinta, Bobby Deol, Lara Dutta, Amitabh Bachan
Producer - Aditya Chopra

With a star cast as good as this and some rocking music from SEL , I was really expecting this movie to do some wonders in this hot Delhi summer, but alas even this movie failed as miserably as does the prediction of the Met department fails regarding the arrival of monsoons in Delhi ;-).

The movie had nothing going it's way from the word go. Preity was looking stale in the role, with Abhishek overdoing his part. Bobby and Lara are perhaps the only saving grace of movie well supported by some good music and well picturized songs. In short the movie is all about Preity and Abhishek waiting for their fiances at the waterloo station while the train gets delayed by a couple of hours. The conversation between them extends their relation from just being mere acquaintances and what happens next is told as the movie unfolds in the second half.

Irrespective of a rather childish story and script, the movie does have some humorous moments which does leave you in splits but I am sorry that they are easily overpowered by the otherwise boring movie. To add to your woes you have Amitabh Bachan jumping into the screen wearing a funny colorful jacket whenever the movie tries to pick up some pace.

All in all this movie can be easily be defines as an opportunity well wasted and should very easily be avoided.

Rating 1.5/5
