Trivia

Janbaaz was a title Feroz Khan got from Salim Khan. When the Salim-Javed team broke up, it was Feroz Khan who contacted Salim, took him for a month to London and then to his farm in Bangalore. Salim wrote a script titled Janbaaz for FK which was to be made in English and Hindi. After starting it, Feroz put it on the back burner and made the Anil Kapoor-Dimple starrer Janbaaz instead. The script was different but he retained the title. Salim Khan was uncomfortable with the sexual and bold content of the original script. Both parted ways after several months. 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.
