Trivia

Dharmendra produced this movie as a launch pad for his nephew Abhay Deol. Dharmendra earlier successfully launched both his sons Sunny, in Betaab and Bobby, in Barsaat. Both these movies were hits but he couldn't repeat the same success with Abhay. Though the movie didn't do much good for Abhay and the débutant director Imtiaz Ali, both young guys went on to make a niche for themselves. See more »

Watch it for the maverick's first outing!!!
2 November 2009 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

"Socha Na Tha", it came, it saw and it went away. Like me many of you would have missed it. Post-Jab We Met however rewrites the rules and I was persuaded to retrace my steps and take notice to Imtiaz Ali. Believe me - true to its title "Socha Na Tha" Imtiaz is a fine story teller indeed. Probably it was the timing of the release or perhaps it lacked the star-value owing to which it didn't get the recognition it deserved.

Abhay Deol:: A launch pad and its very much like for a first-timer. Quite confident and who anticipated that this guy would carve a genre for himself. In retrospection the failure of "Socha Na Tha" (read that as "non performance") saved the Indian Cinema of type-casting Abhay as yet another hero in the number game. So its "good riddance...." for him which made him a character actor.

I particularly liked his character which does a proper "Create a problem, solve it and then claim 'Yes I have done it!!!'".

Ayesha Takia:: For her stint in Bollywood perhaps the closest she would be proud of next to "Dor". Quite promising and a matured performance delivering at ease the director backed role.

Apoorva Jha:: Leaves a lasting impression actually - pity she wasn't seen much around after this movie. Managed to pull-off Karen quite realistically.

Ayesha Jhulka:: Wouldn't be wrong to state this Bhabhi as lovable as Renuka Shahane from HAHK. A natural transformation for Ayesha too.

The rest of supporting cast which includes Suresh Oberoi, Rati Agnihotri, Raj Zutshi, Sandhya Mridul were adequate. Nearly forgot - Vijay Maurya as well.

Not many noticed but "Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Naa" heavily borrowed the concept of "So when do you know it's love?" from "Socha Na Tha". On the same note it does bears resemblance to the "Saif-Sonali" track from "Dil Chahta Hain".

Epilogue:: Go for it - to watch the genius trotting his initial steps!
