Movie Info

Bollywood bad-boy Salman Khan stars in screenwriter/director Shirish Kunder's romantic tale of two men who share an intense love the same woman, but just can't seem to find the words to express their heartfelt feelings. Suhaan (Khan) is the kind of college stud that every woman on campus longs for; a wannabe rock star whose smooth way with words can melt hearts, he longs to be with the beautiful Piya (Preity Zinta). But Suhaan isn't the only man on campus with eyes for the Piya, because loveable dreamer Agastya (Akshay Kumar) also harbors deep feelings for the girl. Though the fun-loving trio is virtually inseparable on campus, neither the ultra-smooth Suhaan or the lovably nerdy Agastya can muster the courage to make their love known to the unassuming object of their affections. Ten years after college graduation, Suhaan has become a famous singer and Agastya a highly-respected astronaut; yet despite their success in life, both men's for Agastya still goes unspoken. When fate brings the long-separated trio together once again on an idyllic afternoon, fond memories rapidly resurface and an undying love soon underscores the happy reunion.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Audience Reviews for Jaan-e-Mann

A hilarious movie! Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar are obviously great together. Their vast friendship in the movie depict an amazing connection. Preity Zinta is also fantastic. Great music. Funny! Absolutely loved Salman Khan dressed up in various costumes, especially the Elvis suit as well as a female in the night club scene.
