Storyline

Widowed Mrs. Saraswati Batra (Waheeda Rehman) has brought up three sons with a lot of care and love. Her eldest son Om (Anil Kapoor) is very honest and diligent; her two other sons Jai (Fardeen Khan), and Jagdish (Abhishek Bachchan) also live in the same house. Om looks after the family, and also looks after the business and the estate. Jai's interest is fast cars, and to the much disappointment of his family, decides to re-locate the United States of America, and gets married to a rich and snobish girl, Neetu (Urmilla Matondkar). Her mother (Lilette Dubey) strongly disapproves of Jai, and vehemently, though in vain, opposes the marriage. To make matters worse, Jai gets a job in the U.S. in a vehicle junkyard, much to the horror of his wife and his family. Jai must use this junkyard so that he can make the fastest car in the world. Jagdish is the spoiled brat of the family. He gets into trouble with the law, when he starts hacking computer data. This brings shame on the entire family,... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Excellent movie !

Anupam Kher is making his directorial debut with Om Jai Jagdish. The film stars Anil Kapoor, Fardeen Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Mahima Chaudhary,Urmila and Tara Sharma. Waheeda Rahman plays a very important role in this film.

The story is about three brothers Om (Anil Kapoor), Jai (Fardeen Khan) and Jagdish (Abhishek Bachchan).

Om works for a music company. A simple man who can spot talent when he sees it. Om's wife Ayesha is a MTV VJ. Jai is a fast moving guy, has a desire to create the fastest car that could create revolution in the automobile industry. Jai loves Neetu, who is the daughter of NRI parents. Jagdish is the youngest and studying in college. He loves his computer and hacking sites is his favorite pastime. Jagdish loves his fellow classmate Pooja.

Om loans for Jai's education. He hopes that Jai makes it big in his chosen field. Because Jai respects Om, he rejects a big time offer from General Motors and returns to homeland. Om wants the family to be united always.

Things go wrong when Jagdish requests for money with Om for a computer course and Om already being burdened with loans refuses. Jagdish shocks Om saying that he has been partial to him. Along with this Jai announces that he wants to go back to the US. Also Jagdish hacks the college computer and steals the exam paper. This results in Om asking Jagdish to leave the house.

A family that was once knit together and three brothers, who were there for one another, walk in three different directions. It's a story about the family bonding.

The movie promos have been praise worthy. Bollywood has been banking on patriotic and tragic love for revival. Hope this theme of family bonding does wonders.
