The Music Within hums its way to the surface!
7 March 2010 | by (Bermuda) – See all my reviews

Jashnn for the most part is quite a well made film- it's a pretty typical Bollywood affair but one that won't have you rolling your eyes around too much. But several shortcomings prevents this from being an excellent movie.

Rather than running with a completely original idea the directors went the tried and tested way which means having several well worn clichés- the day dreaming hero who tears up at the drop of a hat, a villain that you dislike upon sight, even before he says a word, a bombshell heroine, and the clichéd ending.

One may wonder how then this merits a favourable review but thankfully the movie doesn't go the typical route with the 50 band troupe song and dance that appears out of nowhere, nor are there pointless action scenes.

The story is well captured in the emotions of the actors- you feel for them when they're down as their problems are problems that we could and probably would face in reality. Well, apart from the main hero who cries a bit too much which gets very old and annoying after a while.

But the main success of the movie is the music- very nice tunes and beats and I surprised myself by watching and listening to every song. The music has a rock like edge to it and worthing listening to- especially Nazarein Karam.

Actingwise no real complaints here- everyone did a decent job and if there were any failings it was because of the loose and dull script. So I guess you can't blame the main actor for crying to much- he did so because it was written in the screenplay to do so!

One hangup I had concerned the romance track which was not handled all that well. It seemed that after one meeting and a song true love somehow blossomed between the lead couple which was not explained properly nor developed very well. Another thing- the hero falls in love at first sight...and yet the lead actress looked no different from any other Indian girl so what made her so special? This part was poorly handled and not very believable. I think its high time that Bollywood directors depict attraction in a more realistic fashion.

Finally, if anything ruined the overall enjoyment it's the ending. This is a spoiler free review so I won't discuss any plot points but suffice it to say that the first half was decent apart from the villain script blip which was as old as the hills. The second half started fine but suffered from a slowdown from something the main hero does and then the ending is so clichéd that I actually forwarded to the end credits.

So, in conclusion a mostly fun fare which hits some road bumps in the form of a clichéd script, a typical Bollywood ending (which not a good thing) and some predictable twists. But the music serves as a nice distraction to make this a Sunday evening time pass.
