Storyline

Arjun is a reckless young man with an obsession for making money at card games. A chance meeting with a girl in a mall, Zoya, gives him the reasons he was looking for the move out of his ordinary life. He steps up from playing small-time card games to becoming a bookie. Stuck in a triangle of sorts between the woman he loves and his addiction to make a quick buck, Arjun moves on from being a bookie to a runner for the mafia. He steps into the world of match fixing. Arjun switches on the limelight to bigger, better, faster, more, until his dizzying rise attracts the attention of the police. Arjun has to now choose between the love of his life, Zoya, and this new found success and power. As Arjun struggles to choose between the two, the Don offers the forbidden apple of limitless wealth in exchange for his soul and draws him into his core entourage of money spinners. How far will the horizon of reality stretch as Arjun and Zoya tread a fine, fast-blurring line between right and wrong to... Written by gavin (gunmasterM@hotmail.com)

Jannat - A must see
13 June 2008 | by (Bahrain) – See all my reviews

I thought this film would be a nonsensical usual mahesh bhatt film which had stories but were artificial..

But it got me by surprise. It was a good story man!! Not realistic and all that but well told.

Emraan hashmi has become a star..long overdue..not much deserved but only for the fact that he is consistent. Though he is not conventionally good looking..he is okay. The film deals with that part of match fixing not seen as yet. New director, new girl but the Bhatt camp behind it means they back directors fully. Or he would not have been able to make this film.There would have been interferences, dictates and all that. So many producers are like that especially first time Producers.

All in all.. a must see.
