Critic Reviews for Jhoom Barabar Jhoom

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3)

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

Top Critic

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.

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.

Hindustan Times

The deliriously exhilarating twenty-minute dance climax plays like an open dare to the audience to not jhoom, barabar, jhoom--and only the most severe of grumps won't succumb to the spell of the siren song.

Audience Reviews for Jhoom Barabar Jhoom

½

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.
