Critic Reviews for Jhoom Barabar Jhoom

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (3)

A giddy romantic comedy with star power, wanderlust, and a charming can-do, why-not-the-kitchen-sink spirit.

The nonsensical plot that follows somehow culminates, in singular Bollywood fashion, with a climactic dance-off.

Top Critic

Flirtatious repartee between glamorous stars in travel-poster international locations; a gratifyingly simple plot with puzzles and sleight-of-hand surprises; and, at regular intervals, outbursts of gaudy, energetic dancing infectiously exploding.

It's bolly-fluff, fitfully funny in places but it is time to deport this NRI escapism back to Bollywood.

This one might just end up as the great summer let-down.

Only about 10 minutes of this 14-reeler add up to entertainment -- and that is the splashy, kitschy title dance number rambunctiously choreographed by Vaibhavi Merchant.

Audience Reviews for Jhoom Barabar Jhoom


Great movie. Amitabh Bachchan and Preity Zinta are great in this movie. Intriguing story plot that centralizes around a fascinating love story theme, a chance meeting like none other, that one would see a very slight resemblance to "Before Sunrise." Chance Encounters. Abhishek Bachchan guest appears in this comedic/romantic movie. An interesting movie, great music.
