Did You Know?


In 1996, Vishesh Films were making a film called Mr Aashiq with Saif Ali Khan and Twinkle Khanna, the audio for the film was even released. Later Vishesh Films felt the film was not up to the mark and neither did the cast and felt they were all simply 'wasting their time'. Then they scrapped Mr Aashiq, and with the same cast they rewrote a new story and gave it new title 'Yeh Hai Mumbai Meri Jaan' and re-shot the whole film at the decision of Mahesh Bhatt. At first it was a dramatic love story which later became mad crazy comedy film. The only footage remained from Mr Aashiq was the songs shot placed in 'Yeh Hai Mumbai Meri Jaan' as can be recognized by the looks of the actors during the songs sequences. See more »

In 1996, Vishesh films were working on a film MR AASHIQ(1996) with Saif, Twinkle and Ashwini Bhave, the audio too was released but then Bhatts lost interest and shelved the film and then after years in late 90s Bhatt decided to use the same cast minus Bhave and restart the film with a different story but use the same songs. Sadly the film didn't even find a distributor and had to release directly on TV. The film is a mad comedy which wasn't liked at that time, it is as over the top, ridiculous as it can get but yet it entertains at most places The cast too was not happening at that time. The film has a decent plot, it's quite funny at many places, we have Saif who enters Mumbai to make it big but ends up as a peon and then he disguises as David Rathod to solve the solution. At times the situations are too farcical and also over the top which does get on the nerves

Mahesh Bhatt is never known for his comedy, his most comedy films except HHRPK, DHKMN were flops especially Duplicate. but here he does handle several scenes well. Music by Jatin Lalit is superb, the best part of the film though the songs do give a little jaded feel. Humko Awaz De, Mera Chand Mujhe, Teri Chaahat ke, all songs are fab The only footage used from Mr Aashiq are the songs, some of the visuals of the songs are from Mr Aashiq which shows in the film as the actors looks vary.

Saif Ali Khan those days was struggling as a lead hero and gave very few hits but he always suited in comedy though at times he overacts yet he does a good job in his role Twinkle Khanna is okay in her role, she too didn't make it too big The best character of the film is Poplet, played by Girish Dhamija who is superb Saurabh Shukla is funny though he tends to overact Chunky Pandey, Akshay Anand provide funny cameos Avtar Gill(Bhatt regular) is superb rest are okay
