Good Shepherd College nerd, complete with eye-glasses and braces, Agastya Rao alias Champu, has a crush on Piya Goel, and is thrilled when she invites him to go to a dance, only to be heart-broken when he finds out that she really digs another guy. Years later, Agastya has graduated, re-located to the U.S. where he is an astronaut with NASA, and when he finds out that his college sweetheart is about to divorce her husband, decides to try his hand at wooing her. He gets the unsolicited help of one-time Bollywood wonder Suhaan Kapoor, who accompanies Agastya to New York, assists him in successfully wooing and proposing to Piya. On the night of their engagement, Agastya will find out that Suhaan only wanted to help him because of Section 25 of the Hindu Marriage Act - so that could relieve him of the financial burden of paying alimony to Piya, who was the girl he had secretly married much against the wishes of the entire Goel clan.

I liked Jaanemann, I loved Jaanemann, Jaanemann is in my blood!

I have to admit, I had my doubts on a new director because you have no idea what to expect when you go into the cinema. Besides, I wasn't too keen on him after reading his interviews. But with all that set aside, from the very first reel, he stands out from the rest because of the way he sees his scenes. They are refreshingly different and unique. The man is an all-rounder. Hello? Director, Writer, Editor, Dialogues, Background Score, Promo direction... what can't this guy do? And I'm sure I'm still missing something! Technologically, its a film far superior than any other in Bollywood. The scene changes are spectacular... the colors are saturated in certain sequences to gain more visual appeal and the visuals used to express emotions are outstanding. Moreover, he's taken all cinematic liberties and they're all used so effectively!

If you saw KHNH and KANK and thought that was all there is to New York. Wrong! Sudeep Chatterjee shows New York in a different light altogether. More scenes are done in the evening/night here rather than the broad daylight. Sabu Cyrill goes a step further and creates sets that further enhance the entire "Jaan-E-Mann" experience. Great job to both!

Farah Khan's choreography shows us exactly where her heart is.... with Shirish Kunder. Her choreography flows SO well with the storyline and the screenplay. Its as if the body is meeting the soul because the songs are just an extension of the scene that precedes. No popcorn break here folks. Dialogues are placed within the songs and this is where teamwork really shines. Anu Malik, Gulzar, Farah, Shirish and the star cast have really worked together to make the music of this film shine. While Gulzar has penned perfect lyrics (yes! 'mom'; 'dad'; 'future' 'ignore' all make sense now!), Anu Malik has given the music a majestic feel and Shirish and Farah have worked well together to place the songs in the right moments and give the most suited choreography possible. The actors just flow with the direction and make the dream of Shirish and Farah come alive on the big screen. Don't believe me? See for yourself and be the judge.

While talking about the songs, I must say that each and every one was presented in a completely different manner and held its own. One has to see the songs on the big screen to understand the importance of the lyrics, and the way the song is pictured.

The performances: Piya Goel. Beautiful, Smart, Ambitious is she ... yet suffers from a lingering heartache. Though, there isn't much scope for her as an actress, Preity Zinta has still given it her all. She's cute as the popular college girl who cuts school to hang out with her bf, who is most probably a dropout. In NY, she's sophisticated, cultured and a sweet _______. Fill in the blank when you watch the film! ... and she really shines in the climax!

Agastya Rao aka Champu. A dreamer in his own right. THEN, a geek with no clue on how to woo a girl. NOW, sophisticated, intelligent, a great catch .. but still no clue on how to woo a girl. Akshay Kumar attempts a role he's never done before and churns out such an endearing character, that you just can't let go of him. His full confidence and dependence in Suhaan shows through (especially towards the end where he becomes almost desperate) and the scene in front of the mirror is outstanding. Even when you leave the theater .. his "Huhh Huhh Huhh" laugh lingers in your head.

Suhaan Kapoor. Selfish, over- confident, arrogant and pompous are just a few words that describe Suhaan. THEN a drop out student who only dreams big... NOW, he still dreams big... the only problem is, not much has changed from then and now. In fact, he's worse off now than before. The man can cry when affected because his heart deeply cares for those he loves. He blames the world at first and later only himself. This role is CUSTOM MADE for Salman Khan. Salman plays Suhaan to perfection. He takes digs at his own real life that no actor in his position would ever take. It really shows how comfortable he is in his own skin. The various characters that he takes on throughout the film are hilarious and really add to the flamboyance of entire canvas. In the second half of the film, you see a more sensitive Salman. The subtleness he keeps throughout really shows that he's in control of his character. His emotional scenes are outstanding. When he cries, you cry along with him because you understand the reasons for his mistakes.

One of the highlights of this film is the chemistry between Salman and Akshay. They share such an AMAZING chemistry that not many actors tend to share. This film is miles ahead of Mujhse Shaadi Karogi in many ways. If you thought they gelled well in MSK, you'll be happy to know that the chemistry they share here is much much more. I hope they continue making films. Love the two together.

This is a movie that one should enjoy for its craziness, flamboyance and visual style. Thie is one to be truly enjoyed on the big screen itself for all its grandness. It is an out and out Broadway show with plenty of glitz, glamor, musical numbers and talented performers. Ladies and Gentlemen .. after seeing this film .. I say .. ENCORE!! Yes, I'll be seeing this one again in the theater the next weekend.
