Storyline

Mr. Dhanrajgir or Dadaji (Anupam Kher) is the paternal grandfather of Suraj (Salman Khan). Dadaji is concerned about the manner Suraj treats young ladies, he just flirts with them one after another. Then Suraj meets with the girl of his dreams, Komal Sinha (Twinkle Khanna). Komal lives with her uncle and aunt (Harish Patel and Himani Shivpuri), and does not appreciate Suraj's advances. So Suraj takes on the identity of Suraj Dhanwa, a childhood friend of Komal Sinha and her family. Komal accepts him and also falls in love with him. But then the real Suraj Dhanwa shows up, resulting in the break-up of both Suraj and Komal. Komal is not convinced that Suraj will stop his flirtatious attitude, and is hurt by his impersonating Mr. Dhanwa. Matters are further complicated when a child named Kabir shows up claiming that Suraj is his dad. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

The film was good but a disappointment because it did not always ring true.
30 August 2003 | by (Tucson, Az) – See all my reviews

Perhaps, had I not been a social worker or recently seen much better films such as Hum Aapke Hain Koun, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, and Pardes, I might have enjoyed JPKHH better.

I felt that there were several areas that did not ring true with either Salman Khan's character or the storyline and those areas were so blatant that they had a jarring effect. I especially did not like a scene where a child popped an adult's pill used to comic effect. Johnny Lever's pill popping was totally unnecessary to the entire film and dragged it to a lower level.

I would still have to give this film a 7/10 because the acting was very good, the story was OK and had a few logical surprises, and the sets, scenery and songs were all fine. I just feel that, with a little fine tuning, JPKHH could have been a much better film.
