Storyline

The film begins with a mysterious gypsy-like musician leading the crowds at Waterloo station in London in a dance to the title song. At the station, two strangers, Rikki Thukral and Alvira Khan, wait for their respective fiancés. Rikki is a fun-loving Punjabi boy from Bhatinda who lives in Southall, while Alvira is a middle class Pakistani girl from Lahore who is more assimilated into British culture. The two share a table in a café together and to kill the time they talk about how they met their partners-to-be. Rikki, handsome but primitive in the Desi way, says that he met his fiancé, Anaida Raza, at the Hôtel Ritz Paris, the same night that Diana, Princess of Wales and Dodi Al-Fayed left the hotel to take their last journey together. Rikki explains "When two lovers die, another two are born", as he fell in love with Anaida that night. Alvira says she met her fiancé, the dashing lawyer Steve Singh at Madame Tussauds in London when he saved her from death by a falling Superman wax ... Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Goofs

During the scene where Abhishek is telling the story of him and Lara he mentions that she is a Pakistani and he met her in 1997 around the time when Princess Diana was in Paris, France. This was fifty years after an Independant India and Pakistan were created. In one scene with him Lara he says to himself "She will take revenge for the past 60 years" So he jumped ten years ahead.

Jhoom machale (Sarcasm)
28 June 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It simply has to be the worst movie of 2007 because it was complete lame about two strangers Abhishek & Preity met in a train station and told each other that they are already engaged, then they told their story when they first met. In Abhishek's story he got a ticket to Hollywood but Lara look it from him and he was singing & dancing to get it back. When he got it he kissed Lara in front of the Eiffel tower which was lighting up and threw the ticket away (Crap, Crap, Crap, & Mega Crap!). In Preity's story she was in Madame Tussaud's and a lawyer (Bobby) saved her from a Superman statue falling above her and they fell in love. Preity wanted to sue the owner of Madame Tussaud's and Bobby was fighting her case but all of a sudden the judge started singing like a squirrel and they started dancing & singing the Kiss of Love song. The lyrics of the Kiss of Love song should be changed to "Stupid film, Stupid film, Stay away from the stupid film". Music is not that great as many people are saying the only good song is the very first "Jhoom" and the rest of them do not jar and lacks instant recall after one hearing. There are a few surprises but they were so predictable that you didn't even have to be of average intelligence to figure them out. Amitabh's get-up was good with his long hair and hat with feathers but it didn't make the film any better. Watching three hours of your washing machine spin would be more rewarding than this!
