Trivia

Feroz Khan had spotted Dan Dhanoa at a party and was highly impressed. He approached him to act in his newly launched film Janbaaz. This was when Feroz was making the film with Shatrughan Sinha and Rekha in 1983 . Dan told him he was a Indian Marine and did know anything about acting or the film industry. Feroz told him he was a star maker and he could make anyone act. To leave the performance part to him. He convinced Dan to quit the Indian Marines and shift to Bombay. A few months later Feroz Khan called Dan and broke the bad news. He had reworked the script of Janbaaz and now Dan's role was completely scrapped from the film. He did not want to offer him a bad role in his newly scripted Janbaaz. Dan and Feroz mutually parted ways. See more »

Sridevi steals the show with a ten minute performance
5 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

Feroz Khan's 'Janbaaz' is your typical action romantic 80's flick where Khan tries to tackle the theme of drug abuse that is surrounded by poor storytelling. Of course sex has always been an ingredient in Khan's film and there is some doze of that. Unfortunately, 'Janbaaz' is hardly a sexy film (thanks to the amateur presentation). I would have found the movie unintentionally funny but most of the scenes unnecessarily drag on to the point that it gets tiring. In such circumstances, the remote control is handy for the fast forward application. Of the so many things I find ridiculous in the story, it really tests your patience when they try to justify the murder of a poor innocent man in the name of love, how Reshma so easily forgives Amar because he murdered Vikas out of jealousy. There are plenty of such silly moments but that one's the tip of the icing. One thing that Feroz Khan got right was the soundtrack. The songs are of the hummable sort. With some catchy numbers, the one I liked most was 'Har Kisiko Nahin Milta'. Rekha's item number is hilarious but the song itself has some great lyrics. Try and catch a glimpse of it on the Internet and you'll see what I mean. I must add the pairing of Feroz Khan and Sridevi is ridiculously hilarious. Clearly, Khan does a poor job of hiding his age as dying his hair wasn't enough. In terms of ç acting he is downright wooden while Anil Kapoor is merely okay. Dimple Kapadia does well in the initial portions but when things get dramatic she becomes a caricature. The best part of 'Janbaaz' was Sridevi's portion. Sadly, this sequence doesn't last more than a few minutes. How to turn a ten minute performance into something transcendent is something only very few actors can do and and Sridevi has done it with sheer ease.
