We keep waiting for one of those outlandish musical treats to bring some life to the clichéd script. Kunder throws in a few breaks, but they're tepid and brief.

Viewers who are not already Bolly-heads are likely to be appalled.

The film's transition from sight gags to tear-stained family drama is especially abrupt, and most of the musical sequences are undistinguished.

Leave it to the ever-grating Salman Khan to render anyone's efforts moot.

The film has some minor flaws which do not fully deter from one's enjoyment. Kunder, who also wrote the screenplay, stages some spectacular musical numbers -- some of the best seen in recent years. The musical score by Anu Malik is lovely and enjoyable.

Why every New Yorker has a British accent is a mystery, but the musical number built around Piya and Agastya's engagement is worth its weight in rupees.

Fantasy, wit and biting humour combine, breathing life into the otherwise staid 'love triangle' formula.

Jaan-E-Mann (the title means 'beloved') has many of its genre's shortcomings, including a shaky hold on the line between farce and stupidity and a soapy, melodramatic denouement. But it also has personable stars.
