Jeeva The Professional
16 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you didn't know this is a Bollywood version of Luc Besson's groundbreaking action film 'The Professional' AKA 'Leon The Professional.' Second, I don't speak a word of Hindu and I saw this film WITHOUT SUBTITLES. But still I was able to figure out what was going on. This proves that the powerful story transcends language.

Plot wise many scenes are literally identical to the original. Even the angles of the cameras and the mannerisms of the actors. They even keep some of the same lines, in English! If you think Leon looked weird walking around New York carrying a potted plant and two cartons of milk, wait until you see Jeeva walking around India like that.

What's different? We for one thing, Leon/Jeeva is given a back story as to how he became a killer. Jeeva worked at a (presumably bootleg) CD store until his girlfriend's overly protective father had Jeeva's mother evicted and disgraced in her community causing her to be stoned and buried to death by her neighbors. (What was that about good fences making good neighbors?) Horrified by her father's actions Jeeva's girlfriend drives off a cliff. (or maybe she was just a typical Indian driver.) Hence a vengeful Jeeva murders him and turns to a life of crime.

The other key difference is that Gary Oldman's character is a politician of some type running with the campaign slogan in English, "No do drugs!" Seriously I'm not joking.

Of course 'Bichhoo' must follow the Bollywood rules of being 3:00 hours long! And being a musical. That's right. About every 20 minutes the characters all break out in very very elaborate song and dance scenes where hundreds of people are dancing in the streets. These dance scenes aren't cheesy. Seriously, Jeeva really can sing and dance. Take that Jean Reno.

What these songs are about is pretty obvious. They're mostly about Matilda/Kiran's crush on Leon/Jeeva.

Another song features Jeeva's girlfriend singing, "I love you." to him in English.

The opening song features a billboard which reads in English, "No Drugs, No War." Fair enough but I never really thought of 'The Professional' as an anti drug pacifist film. Why doesn't Leon save the ozone while he's at it? Hands down this is must see!!! Seriously, I enjoyed every second of it!
