Trivia

The last shot of the film is on the airport of the arriving crowd. In the shot a man with a big beard is seen sleeping, holding a board in his hand saying "Mr. Godot". This is a reference to Samuel Beckett's famous play "Waiting For Godot" in which "Godot" never arrives. See more »

Goofs

In the second chorus of "Pappu Can't Dance," Imran Khan is supposed to appear to be lip syncing the chorus, but he starts lip syncing too late and only "sings" the second half of the the line. See more »

Quotes

Aditi Mahant: We used to spend so much time together because we wanted to be with each other, because we were happy together! It is not a duty or an obligation that you should spend time with me. So please, don't ashame me by saying sorry.

Mein Bhi Jaanu Tu Bhi Jaane
6 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

I knew her from really long, we were best of friends for all these years. People talked about both of us as a pair but we didn't care for them and went along as the best buddies. A boy and a girl both "Friends forever"! Does this really exist?

Before watching the movie I was well aware of the very fact that two protagonists of the movie can't be friends forever, I just wanted to see their interception of this fact. It's official that Jai and Aditi are now the new heartthrob for the Youngistaan, a refreshing movie having blend of "Socha Na Tha" and "Dil Chahta Hai" and does the same magic. It also reminds me the story telling plot of "Chalte Chalte" where the story is being done by the friends! Story goes along smoothly with no unexpected twist and turn and ends on a happy note.

Both Imran and Genelia have done justice to their roles and with lack of acting skills they were able to show the immaturity and confusion these two characters should have. Other characters also played their roles convincingly. Paresh Rawal is refreshing in his new role (I am fed up of seeing him playing type casted roles in Priyadarshan flicks). Comic timing is the life of movie which makes it watchable. Even with the cameo of Arbaaz and Sohail makes it hilarious especially at the end of movie. The small bits and pieces of such well crafted scenes make this movie a fun to watch .The idea of three conditions to be fulfilled before becoming a Man of Ranjhore's Rathod is hilarious.

The life of movie is the music, the tunes let you stand on your feet and move your body with the characters, brilliant cinematography which also tells you it doesn't take an abroad trip to shoot an eye catching song. The pace at which the movie runs will always keep you on your seat just like the character (well written) in the movie that the story is being told. The girl Mala (The airhostess girl friend) does an amazing job to show her emotions and involvement in the story just as the audience would do while watching movie. This shows and confirms that it's up to the story teller to let you involve or get you of your seat the very next minute (Great story telling by the writer and director Abbas Tyrewala) . Nasir and Ratna's pair steals the show whenever they come on screen, again reminds me one of most popular pair on silver screen Ashok Sharaf and Priya Tendulkar (in Hum Panch). All in all it's highly recommended to those who like good music along with soft romantic movie. At the end,

Question: Which movie did I see? Answer: Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na. Meghna's Answer: On a silver screen Romeo and Juliet playing "Comedy of Errors"!!
