A typical but heartwarming romance
28 August 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Jaanam Samjha Karo is a very nice watch for the entire family. Urmila Matondkar plays Chandni, a young girl who works as a nightclub dancer and singer to feed her family. She meets a handsome womaniser named Rahul, played by Salman Khan. Rahul's grandfather, played by the great Shammi Kapoor, comes to visit him and keeps insisting that he finally get married, and Rahul asks Chandni to pretend to be his wife. She does so, and his grandpa is charmed by the young girl who has great values. Rahul does not take Chandni seriously, but she falls in love with him. But then, when his grandpa leaves, she decides to do the same. Will something or someone change this? Go and watch to find out. The film has everything a Hindi commercial flick of its sort needs: very melodious songs, charming romance, good stars, nice story, solid dialogues, amazing locations and many emotions. Salman Khan and Urmila Matondkar have a very good chemistry together. Shame they didn't work as much together. Khan is very good as Rahul, but the film belongs to Urmila, who is wonderful in an all-out mainstream flick. She manages to make the sensitive Chandni a real woman of substance with her intense style and forceful dialogue delivery. Shammi Kapoor is very, very likable as Rahul's grandpa. The film is light and entertaining, it does get a bit overdone at times (though I still can name a few filmmakers who would have turned it into an unbearable soap), but is generally an interesting watch despite some of its flaws. I recommend.
