Director Milap Zaveri has come up with such a light comedy that we fear audience might take Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai too lightly. There is nothing serious or funny about an alien girl with minimal knowledge of human language and earthly things. She just looks like a perfect girl and it happens that she even falls in love with an Indian superstar. And there’s also an eternal loser who can’t help falling for her.
And this loser is our hero, also the narrator of the story. His life is a big yawn, with nothing interesting and no love happening. Born to an over-protective Gujarati parents, Rajesh Parekh (Ritesh Deshmukh) resembles a typical, rondu boy, who, by the end of the day, finds himself cooped within the four walls of his house. And for the sake of company he has another loser as a friend (Vishal Malhotra). Since the backdrop of drama is film industry, there is another character, a hero and a superstar named Desh (Ruslaan Mumtaz). And he has a beautiful sister Natasha (Sonal Sehgal) whom Rajesh, also an assistant director, loves. But how can a down-and-out loser win a girl’s heart? He cries out loud in front of God and asks ‘why!’
The good God answers his call and sends Tara (Jacqueline Fernandez) to the earth from the planet Venus. The delightful gal’s earthly mission is to find love. And she finds Desh suitable for her, but by then our loser has already lost his heart to Tara. Complexities in the story create a love triangle and a few funny situations.
Jacqueline is good as an alien who is a rank ignoramus about earth and its water. She loves to stay here experiencing the earthly joys like bathing in a pool and even sneezing. If that doesn’t sound rivetingly interesting to you, you can be forgiven for feeling the itch to leave the theatre by the end of the first half. The movie is touted to be a comedy, but really wonder, is it so!
Though ‘Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai’ starts promisingly, bringing on some smiles, but those smiles vanish faster than it takes to say ‘cheese’.
Talking about performances, Jacqueline shows improvement from her debut film ‘Aladin’ and you will love her as the innocent Venusian. Ritesh is as usual a good performer, but doesn’t yet show the mettle to carry an entire movie on his sole shoulders. Others have done justice to their roles. Ruslaan, Sonal are okay. Satish Shah and Supriya Pilgaonkar are just adorable as the funny, quintessential Indian parents.
The cameos by Farah Khan and Akshay Kumar come as a whiff of fresh air, but some moments of chuckles and cackles don’t make an entertaining movie.
