from Orkut's JJWS-Community-Owner; JJWS is the Best Aamir Khan Movie of all time. - Aamir's Career-Best film !!!
3 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I give JJWS 10/10,100/100,1000/1000-----"The victory of the underdog" theme makes for great entertainment. a true classic; it has that Aamir stamp all over it. This is a movie I've wanted to write about since ages. I seriously think its one of the most understated movies of Hindi cinema. It clearly hasn't received its due credit. This is the story of a family;family of a father & two young sons;about the bond between them;story of a small town life. JJWS is so real. Life of a small town boy .... who initially is Carefree & fun-loving;goes to the extent of causing a lot of trouble thru his actions; BUT eventually,he takes a u-turn,turns a new-leaf & Decides to take revenge in a very special-way...he also starts respecting both his Father & ever-supportive Brother......I love that scene {just before final cycle race} where Sanju starts crying & talks to Ratan - feels bad that Ratan couldn't take part in the race because of Sanju's tussle with the villainous Rajput-champ...Victory at the end wiping out all his past-antics----JJWS is complete.The characters just live with you in day-to-day life.The vision of the director is so fantastic,and never has he had to sacrifice entertainment to fulfill it.JJWS covers so many different aspects of a teenagers life and the movie has been so tastefully done that one can easily relate to the theme being portrayed.I say this because I grew up watching JJWS and have seen it almost 60 times and each of those times i have discovered some new aspect of the movie. The attention to detail is immaculate and this is the hallmark of a good movie. One of the most interesting aspects of JJWS is the background score. Not for one moment do you feel that the music doesn't belong there and has been inserted there just for the heck of it (as is the case with most of the movies of the time). The training montage(when Sanju prepares for the final cycle race), the music when the race is going on, the music when the Rajput boys go through MalRoad (shouting Vir Bahadur Ladke Kaun...) and for that matter every second of JJWS has remarkable music complementing the stellar performance. The way the song 'Pehla Nasha' captures the feeling of your first crush cannot be described. Jatin Lalit have really done a wonderful job. Last but not the least the way human emotions have been portrayed in JJWS is beyond comparison. I will never forget the scene in which Sanju(Aamir) tells his father that Ratan has had an accident. The acting by both the actors doesn't go overboard and there's no melodrama; the scene finds its place among the best in my mind.In my opinion JJWS was way ahead of its times in Hindi cinema and has been denied its due credit as a result of internal politics in Bollywood.What really makes JJWS compelling viewing is director Mansoor Khan's simple yet excellent narrative. Most of the characters are etched out well. Some great relationships are portrayed in the movie.....The coldness between Sanju & his dad is brought out in the movie pretty well. Secondly, between Sanju and his best friend Anjali who turns out to be his love eventually. Sanju never sees the love Anjali has for him, until she's the only support he has when he's alone in life. Thirdly, between the two brothers Ratan and Sanju.....who are as dissimilar to each other as one can think of......but are still so close to each other. One of the best sibling relationships portrayed in a Hindi movie. Three cheers for Aamir who has defied his chocolate-boy looks to emerge as the most-varied actor of his time.----- The biggest thing for the people in the town is the inter-school sports competition held every year. Ever since his cycling victory against the Rival school Rajput, Ramlal has been obsessed with Model beating them, through his obedient older son Ratan; Model's model student, in studies, sports and character and the pride of his father. there's one student who can win laurels for his school.....the honest, hard-working Ratan who's the "gem of Model High School". Ratan is determined to win this race this time......but courtesy a fight with Deepak Tijori and gang, he falls from a cliff and is badly injured. Model High's only hope.....Ratan can't participate in the race now, and Model has to be content with its usual "pyjamachaap" image. Sanju, is a happy-go-lucky bloke who loves hanging with friends and having fun in life even if it causes him to fail classes and disappoint his father. When this sudden tragedy occurs to Ratan, Sanju is transformed from a guy with not a care in the world to a responsible friend, brother, son and athlete. The stage is now set for a tale of friendship,love,family,sports and competition told beautifully by Mansoor Khan. All the performances are in top form.Aamir Khan is as adorable as ever as Sanju. You can't help but love him in this sweet role. Special mention should go to Mamik who plays Ratan. He put in a very sincere performance. you can't say that that was his first movie.he looked like a seasoned performer. It is too bad he wasn't seen too much after JJWS. Overall the movie was excellent. Amazing story, great performances and sweet music, well-defined small-town cinematography,nice melodious songs.....all-gr8-gripping-cycle-race-scenes . From start till end this movie keeps you glued to your seats. Performance...a top notch.Aamir Khan,Mr perfectionist, was totally remarkable.He is the soul of this film.From his starting non-serious attitude to ending maturing person was tremendous. The bike race is symbolic-especially for Sanjay, who finally reaches a level of maturity and realizes what needs to be done in order to prove for himself that he can do what needs to be done along with showing his family that he is capable of doing it. His understanding of his brother matures during the movie. This is a Must See if you enjoy Aamir Khan movies !
