Jaane Hoga KyaJaane Hoga Kya : Movie Review

Jaane Hoga Kya - the title of this movie sounds like some big conundrum. But its fate at the box-office is apparently sealed.

Starring Aftab Shivdasani , Bipasha Basu and Preeti Jhangiani in the lead roles, 'Jaane Hoga Kya' is an old movie with a theme quite new to Bollywood.




If you are looking forward to watch this film, then you should be an ardent fan of science fiction movies and ought to have the cannot-miss-this-time feeling. Bollywood, which is already infamous for treating sci-fi genre shoddily, has given no different treatment to 'Jaane Hoga Kya'.

Even though the movie tackles a relatively fresh concept, it will fail to draw the audience to the theatres because of its stale look and by-now-obsolete cinematic idiom. The film was completed in 2004 but couldn't be released due to the arrest and jail sentence of its creator Alok Shrivastava.

The director duo, Glen and Ankush, have wasted their effort to bring a different concept that was not witnessed by Indian audience before. And the movie turns out to be a very bad adaptation of the Chinese movie, 'DNA Clone'.

The storyline runs on the platform of cloning. It revolves around a young, ambitious scientist of IMRC, Siddharth (Aftab Shivdasani) whose ambition in life is to create a human clone in laboratory. On his way to success he loses a friend-cum-colleague of his.

Looking at Siddharth's previous failures, IMRC doesn't allow him to carry forward the project. Then his love Aditi (Bipasha Basu) helps him with finance to start his project once again. He sets up a hi-tech lab that looks somewhat like a poorly recreated set of a Hollywood sci-fi movie.

There is nothing extraordinary about the performance of the actors and the movie's plot. The characters in the story are like automatons.

The proceedings take a slight turn when Siddharth disappears from the city for making his project a success. Inspector Rathore (Rahul Dev) is suspicious of Siddharth and he begins to trace him.

Eventually, Siddharth achieves his aim. But his clone turns out to be stronger than expected and is not even affected by powerful blows. The clone behaves like the Superman. It goes missing and makes Siddharth's life miserable.

The clone plays around with Suchitra (Preeti Jhangiani), daughter of Siddharth's guru, Prof. Krishnan (Paresh Rawal). It later kills Prof. Krishnan to get the project file.

Inspector Rathore swings into action and puts Siddharth behind bars, suspecting him of killing Prof. Krishnan.

From the speed at which the movie progresses, it is for sure that a turtle too could outpace it. Aftab looks more like a man overcoming his adolescent hangover than a scientist working on a serious project. Bipasha and Preeti have been able to enact their parts well. But the director has failed to utilize the potential and acting caliber of Paresh Rawal. Moreover, Rahul Dev is also wasted.

To give the movie a pinch of suspense, the directors have added a little grey shade in Bipasha's character.

As the movie comes near its climax, it is shown that the clone is directed by Aditi, who wants to take revenge from Siddharth.

The film's direction is plain mediocre. The script is full of flaws, the characters have no depth to them, and the dialogues are tacky.

On the music front, the songs are just like fillers which neither match the storyline nor have any catchy melodies that can be hummed. The composers Sajid-Wajid and Nikhil-Vinay have done nothing innovating with the music. An item song 'Teri Mast Jawani', sung by Sukhwinder Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan, also has nothing outstanding to offer.

'Jaane Hoga Kya' altogether is a stale package which can go flat because of its delayed release and lack of proper promotion. To add to its woes, the film is facing a stiff competition from a strong contender like Lage Raho Munnabhai .

It's better to give this poor clone a miss and watch the jamboree of Munna and Circuit instead.
