Jhoom Barabar JhoomJhoom Barabar Jhoom : Movie Review
16th June 2007  01.12 IST
By Aparajita Ghosh  

It may fall a wee bit short of the high expectations that were attached to it, but Jhoom Barabar Jhoom verily delivers what it promises – unadulterated entertainment.

The movie solely rests on the now-dependable shoulders of Abhishek Bachchan , who once again proves that he has got the mettle to live up to the credentials and reputation of his bloodline. The actor, once brooding and uptight, has now begun to loosen up. His comic timing is coming in place. His facial expressions are more real and his body language reflects the character. Abhishek is the driving force of 'Jhoom Barabar Jhoom'. Preity Zinta complements him well, while Bobby Deol and Lara Dutta remain mainly on the sidelines until the film's last half hour.

You've got to throw cynicism aside before watching a film like JBJ. It is easy to curl your lip and poke holes in somebody's work. Not so easy is to be flexible, to step back and take an impartial look at how a director has tried to present a story in a different way.

Yes, JBJ is a movie different from others of its ilk. Although it is set in London and Paris, the movie has a very desi touch. Perhaps the reason for it is that Shaad Ali , the film's director, has himself been a small-towner. The humour in the flick is crude and has a street flavour even though the visuals are very glossy.

Amitabh Bachchan dressed in his rockstar outfit and carrying a guitar, opens the film with the song 'Jhoom'.

The location is London train station. Two strangers are waiting for a delayed train. In a crowded caf they share the same table.

Rikki Thukral (Abhishek Bachchan), a Punjabi guy living in London, breaks the ice and begins the conversation. Alvira Khan (Preity Zinta) gives him no lift. To ward Rikki off, she tells him she is engaged to someone who is coming from the train she is waiting for. In response, Rikki also flaunts his engagement ring and tells her he has come to receive his fiance.

Thereafter, these two strangers, already engaged to someone else, begin to tell each other the story of their fiance and fianc.

Rikki tells Alvira how he met Anaida (Lara Dutta), the manager of Ritz in Paris on the same night when Princess Diana and Dody Fayed walked out for the car ride that claimed their life. "When two lovers die, two new lovers are born," claims Rikki.

In turn, Alvira tells him how she met Steve (Bobby Deol) in London's Madame Tussaud's museum. Like a typical hero, Steve had then saved Alvira's life and won her heart in return.

When the train's arrival time is due, Rikki and Alvira separate, only to find out that the train has been delayed further. Rather than being disappointed, the two begin to look for each other. The cupid has done his work.

The movie's story is poised for a complex love quadrangle. But director Shaad Ali surprises you. Instead of wallowing into a romantic quagmire, he takes the movie onto an entirely unexpected track. Lies of Rikki and Alvira are exposed. Lara Dutta and Bobby Deol do enter the picture, but in the roles you would not have expected.

'Jhoom Barabar Jhoom' is not a romantic drama. It is a musical comedy about two unlikely people falling in love with each other. The good thing is that the movie steers clear of any mushy sentimentality. Even in romance there is teasing and humour.

The film is very high on style and gloss. The costumes by Aki Narula are gaudy but they go well with the mood of the film. The music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy is very catchy, particularly the song 'Jhoom Barabar Jhoom' and its simple tune that keeps playing in the background at many places in the film. The cinematography is top-class and the editing is crisp.

Abhishek Bachchan is getting better with every film. He brings a rustic quality into his character Rikki. He speaks in Punjabi accent, his humour is crass and his demeanor has oodles of attitude of a man who thinks he has "got class". A very good performance by Abhi indeed.

Bobby Deol, sadly, is made to look caricaturish in the second half. Also, Bobby doesn't have as natural flair for comedy as Abhi has.

Preity Zinta complements Abhi well. Lara is perfectly cast in the role of a sexy, spitfire girl.

'Jhoom Barabar Jhoom' starts off very well but it begins to drag a bit in the second half. Thankfully, the drag is not for long. The penultimate dance competition sequence is quite entertaining despite three songs placed back-to-back.

Shaad Ali's funda is simple : to provide paisa vasool entertainment. And he does succeed to an extent.

Don't go expecting moon from this film and you will enjoy it.

Worth a Watch.

'Jhoom Barabar Jhoom' - a whimper after the hype (REVIEW)

Everybody in 'Jhoom Baraabar Jhoom' (JBJ), including the director, is an impossible imposter.

Abhishek Bachchan poses as a small-town guy in love with a very poised and sexy Pakistani-French mademoiselle from Paris. Preity Zinta poses as a modern-day Cinderella with a very posh British-Indian fiancee. Bobby Deol, a nerd-optician poses as a cyber-Superman.

Lara Dutta, god bless her luscious presence, is a tart masquerading as a prima donna.

Director Shaad Ali poses as an auteur with the wickedly audacious sense of humour of a comic-book aficionado. While the audience, not to be left behind, is supposed to pretend that they find the bizarre goings-on hilarious.

But sorry, this is Bunty without bubbly. The joke, if any, is on the creator of this musical travesty where the four main characters behave as though they are so impressed with themselves and their humorous circumstances that they would rather not have the audience along for the joyride, thank you.

Nasir Hussain-meets-Baz Luhrmann in Shaad Ali's weird-and-wacky fun-and-frolic homage to the spirit of backslapping bonhomie. As in 'Bunty Aur Babli', (we won't count 'Saathiya' part of Ali's oeuvre since it was more Mani Ratnam than Ali), Shaad shows a distinct affinity to old-fashioned masquerades ... You know those potboilers from the 1960s where the hero pasted on a beard and pretended to be the heroine's professor?

JBJ sticks the beard on to its characters and lets them run wild in Europe. Alas, what we see is what we regret.

This is 'Moulin Rouge' with too little meat and too much rouge...The love-versus-flirtation masquerade gets lost in too much masti, masquerade and mascara, so that at the end of the chic charade you're left looking at a film that is epic in design (big extravagant song sequences) and cartoon-strip in characterisation and content.

What was Shaad Ali thinking of when he designed this celluloid confectionary?

Did he want to show us how far he could go with his sense of the outlandish? The screenplay and dialogues (Habib Faizal) are terribly un-smart. Each character embraces cockiness like a 'laugh' boat in the simmering but shallow sea of silliness.

'If you don't come back, I'll be screwed,' says Lara in her funniest Pak-French accent. 'I won't let anyone screw you,' retorts Abhishek.

Abhishek gets to smooch both his heroines, one of them under the Eiffel Tower. Sorry, the adolescent kiss under the Eiffel Tower in 'Mera Pehla Pehla Pyar' last week seemed much more heart-warming.

JBJ is like a long stand-up joke that goes from bad to worse as the narrative gets longer and longer. Shadows fall on the frisky flamboyance with ominous opulence. Not that there are no genuinely funny and bright moments. But they get drowned in self-congratulation.

Everyone is busy listening to his or her own words flow out in an incessant downpour of absurdity. The characters neither connect with one another nor with the audience even when they talk or sing directly to us.

A large part of the overall design of this in-house joke is occupied by songs and dances. All four protagonists dance the dance of the dunce spiritedly.

Bobby surprisingly steals the frame quite often specially in the 'Kiss of love' sequence. Here's one actor who is finally getting out of his lazy career.

Abhishek and Preity do 'Bunty Aur Babli' 2, replete with a saat phere in front of the Taj Mahal. It was funny between Abhishek and Rani the first time. This time the whole post-interval chunk where Abhishek and Preity imagine themselves transposed from London to Agra is clear evidence of the leisurely lather running out of froth.

Abhishek and Preity, though given the thankless task of making the lines appear funny when they are often not, lend an illusory energy and effervescence to the proceedings.

But it's Bobby, with his twin-shaded stud-and-nerd look and Lara with her luscious tart-to-diva makeover who come as the surprise element. Really, what's keeping Lara from superstardom? Maybe wrong choice of films?

In the quest for comedy, Shaad Ali pays homage to old film songs and films as disparate as 'Sholay' and ahem ahem 'Bunty Aur Babli'. But 'Namaste London' did it with far more with grace and affection.
