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.
