I still won't forget those days in our childhood days when we used to die to watch such films

JJWS a remake of Breaking Away (1979) But still those days did we care?

The movie is a nice film based on sports which was rarely tackled those days The film has a nice message too and deals with all aspects like ambition, maturity.etc

The film starts off well Aamir's wayyard ways lend a many laughs and also the constant bickering between the school guys is fun to watch The reasons that make Aamir grow as a person are well handled and also the finale which makes you feel a lump go down your throat There is also the love triangle.etc which is treated well

The film did too well that time and is still remembered as one of the best sports films

Direction by Mansoor Khan(Cousin of Aamir) is fabulous Music was a big rage, PEHLA NASHA gave a new style of choreography to the Indian films and all songs are good

Amongst actors Aamir does his role brilliantly, The best part is he never looks he is acting, he is a natural Be it the naughty Aamir to the sensitive Aamir Ayesha Jhulka is as usual Pooja Bedi is awkward but suits her role Deepak Tijori is very good Mamik is good Khulbushan Kharbanda is adequate Don't miss Faizal Khan(in one canteen scene he is standing) and the young Imran Khan as Junior Aamir Khan
