Jawani Diwani - Review
06th Jan 2006 23.50 IST
By N. K. Deoshi
Jawani Diwani is a sub-standard flick that tries to entertain through some really childish comedy mixed with dry romance and, of course, Celina Jaitley's bikini acts.
Directed by Manish Sharma, the movie stars Emraan Hashmi , Celina Jaitley , Hrishitaa Bhatt , Mahesh Manjrekar and Tiku Talsania.
Mann (Emraan Hashmi) is an aspiring singer with an obvious weakness for women. Mann wouldn't mind manipulating someone or playing the game of love just to climb up the ladder to stardom.
After having been turned down by music companies, Mann comes across Radha (Hrishitaa Bhatt), daughter of the owner of a music company. Mann plays the dice. Radha is ensnared in the game of love. Song and dance follow and Mann's ticket to fame is almost booked.
It's time to celebrate. So Mann, along with his friends, heads off to the party-land, Goa. It is here Mann meets Roma (Celina Jaitley), a shapely, skimpily dressed girl with a sex appeal that can arouse any heterosexual man. Obviously, Mann falls for her and the two end up in bed, but not before some song n dance.
Chappu Bhai (Mahesh Manjrekar), an underworld don, makes an entry. After seeing Roma, the girl he admires, in bed with Mann, Chappubhai decides to get the two married.
Mann and Roma are made to marry. While Roma seems to approve of the wedlock, Mann finds himself caught in an unwanted relationship.
So Roma cuts him loose. The two end their marriage with divorce. Mann goes back to Radha. He begins preparing for his first music album, and Radha prepares for marriage. This is when Roma comes back into Mann's life. What happens next is as predictable as the sun setting every evening.
The movie's story is stuffed with clichés. The dialogues and the situational turns in the story make you wonder at the writer's imagination, or the lack of it. And if there was anything left, the actors sink the rest with their lousy performances.
Emraan Hashmi lacks the flair for comedy. And his Casanova-esque image is now becoming more clichéd and less credible with every such role.
Celina Jaitley's cleavage and anatomy is a welcome distraction from everything inconsequential in this movie. But just a shapely body and sex appeal doesn't make an actress. Celina's diction and her facial expressions leave too much to be desired.
Mahesh Manjrekar's character in the movie is made to look like a bumbling buffoon.
Hrishitaa Bhatt is adequate in the role that writers incompetently etched for her.
In short, 'Jawani Diwani' hardly passes off as a timepass entertainer.
