Trivia

In the song "Pappu Can't Dance Saala" a line says "Papa kehte hai bada naam karega". "'Papa Kehte Hai" was a song in 'Imran Khan''s uncle Aamir Khan's debut film Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988). Also, just as Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988) was produced by Aamir Khan's uncle Nasir Hussain, this film, which is Imran Khan's debut film, is produced by his uncles Mansoor Khan and Aamir Khan.

Goofs

In the second chorus of "Pappu Can't Dance," Imran Khan is supposed to appear to be lip syncing the chorus, but he starts lip syncing too late and only "sings" the second half of the the line. See more »

Quotes

Aditi Mahant: We used to spend so much time together because we wanted to be with each other, because we were happy together! It is not a duty or an obligation that you should spend time with me. So please, don't ashame me by saying sorry.

Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na....... Reinvigorating Bollywood.
5 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

You just need two words to describe the flick. Truly Amazing! It's a movie which has already carved its own niche on the first day of its release as a very low budget movie getting an opening the superstars can also dream of. This is the advent of the new age bollywood where superstars don't matter. What matters is performance.

The performance is surely above the par in all sections of this project. The highlights of the movie are script and music. The fundamental story is not new to the bollywood cinema-goer but the treatment is truly unique. The urban, youthful and honest adaptation reinstate your faith in Hindi cinema. It is the perfect combination of friendship, love, and comedy bollywood has long forgotten. Abbas Tyrewala must be applauded.

A R Rehman continues to prove himself. The music has a simplistic honesty to every tune and suits perfectly. "Kabhi kabhi Aditi..." and "Pappu can't dance.." will be remembered.

Every actor/actress is appropriately cast in their role and is fantastic. Imran Khan in the role of Jai Singh Rathore is believable and does complete justice to the role. Genelia D'Souza is fresh, beautiful and natural in every frame. Both the lead actors have surely secured a place in the industry. Naseeruddin Shah in a cameo is excellent and takes the movie to a different level. Ratna Pathak Shah should surely replace the bollywood mother. Everybody else has given an up to the mark performance.

Amir Khan is setting a new benchmark in bollywood. This is maybe the best movie to come out after Dil Chahta Hai in last seven years in that genre.
