Trivia

The song " Pyar Do Pyar Lo" was shot for a unreleased Feroz Khan film titled " Kasak". Feroz had started the film after Qurbani with Praveen Babi and Rekha. After shooting the song, Praveen Babi disappeared from the country. Feroz decided to scarp the film and start Jaanbaz. He retained the song shot with Rekha and added it to the film. See more »

Painfully bad cheese fest
21 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a fan of Bollywood in general, this is easily one of the worst I've ever seen. Its only redeeming features are a couple of good songs, and the unintentional laughs you get from the cheesy production. The director also plays a leading role in the film, and his performance and direction are both equally inept. One example of the ridiculous clichés indulged in "Janbaaz" is how every time a gunshot is fired, the actor twirls the pistol back into his holster like a Hollywood cowboy. The film's only remarkable feature is that, unlike any other Bollywood feature I've seen, it shows a pair of lovers actually kissing on the lips! Very risqué!! With a running time of almost three hours, you should not waste your time unless you get your kicks from making fun of bad movies.
