Storyline

The biggest sporting event for the school town of Nainital is the annual cycling race. Schools and colleges here range from those like Rajput and Xavier's for the spoilt rich kids to local ones like Model for the poorer kids. For the past two years the cycling race has been won by the arrogant Shekhar Malhotra (Deepak Tijori) of Rajput College. Sanju (Aamir Khan) and Ratan (Mamik) are bothers who attend Model and run a small local cafe. Their father (Kulbhushan Kharbanda) is obsessed by the desire to see Ratan become the cycling champion. Ratan on his part is the ideal son and elder brother to Sanju, good in everything he does and has been the runner-up to Shekhar in the cycling race. Sunju on the other hand is a prankster, not taking life seriously at all enjoying life with his friends among whom is Anjali (Ayesha Jhulka) who loves him silently. Sanju however turns his attention on the new girl on the block, Devika (Pooja Bedi) and convinces her he is rich. He uses the money his ... Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Long Review:

Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander (JJWS) is a heart-warming story of a young man, Sanju, his buddies and his family consisting of his father (Ramlal) and an older brother(Ratan). The story is set in a hill station where the richest families send they're kids to school. Apart from top notch schools, there are also a few local ones like Model in which Ramlal is a coach and Ratan, Sanju and their friends attend.

The biggest thing for the people here is the interschool sports competition held every year. Ever since his one cycling victory against the Rival school Rajput, Ramlal has been obsessed with Model beating them, through his obedient older son Ratan. Ratan is Model's model student, in studies, sports and character and the pride of his father. Sanju on the other hand is a happy-go-lucky bloke who loves hanging with friends and having fun in life even if it causes him to fail classes and disappoint his father.

Sanju's friends consist of two good-hearted but not so bright boys and a tomboyish girl, Anjali who is also secretly in love with Sanju. A fact that Sanju is unaware of. When an sudden tragedy occurs, Sanju is transformed from a guy with not a care in the world to a responsible friend, brother, son and athlete.

The stage is now set for a tale of friendship, love, family, sports and competition told beautifully by Mansoor Khan. The music is light and sweet especially Pehla Nasha (amazing job by Udit Narayan) and the title song which is uplifting.

All the performances are in top form. Aamir Khan is as adorable as ever as Sanju. You can't help but love him in this sweet role. Ayesha Jhulka is also very good as the loyal friend. Deepak Tijori is also quite despicable as the bad guy. The rest of the cast is also very competent and fit their roles well. Special mention should go to Mamik who plays Ratan. He put in a very sincere performance. It is too bad he wasn't seen too much after JJWS.

Overall the movie was excellent. Amazing story, great performances and sweet music. Definately recommend it to everyone, young and old alike will enjoy this movie thoroughly.
