Jannat (12a) May 24, 2008

Posted by lollywoodhungama in Uncategorized.

Director: Kunal Deshmukh Starring: Emraan Hashmi, Samir Kochhar, Vishal Malhotra, Javed Sheikh The plot: Jannat (meaning heaven) is a turbulent romantic tale of a couple where cricket and game match-fixing forms a backdrop.

Middle-class, small-time gambler Arjun (Emraan), succeeds in taking the shortest unethical path to the riches by becoming a fully fledged bookie due to his ‘sixth sense’ of predicting the winning matches.

It’s love at first sight for Arjun when he meets call-centre girl, Zoya and eventually wins her heart.

But, when she finds the truth behind Arjun’s wealth, she gets him arrested.

Released on bail, Arjun decides to earn an honest living for Zoya’s sake.

Temptations along the way get the better of him just when he thought his life was back on track.

The verdict: Slick editing and a gripping and realistic storyline makes debut director Kunal Deshmukh’s Jannat an engaging watch!

Deshmukh’s direction keeps you engrossed with his skilfull scene execution at intermission point and a rather shocking, dramatic climax.

Emraan Hashmi shines as the reckless gambler, Arjun, aiming for a wealthy luxurious lifestyle with girlfriend Zoya.

Beautiful and slender-looking Sonal Chauhan makes her Bollywood debut as Zoya, who is determined to bring her boyfriend back on the right side of the law because she loves him so much.

Samir Kochar as the strong-minded police officer on Arjun’s trail shows a magnificent screen presence whilst Pakistani actor Javed Sheikh is menacing as the underworld don constantly tempting Arjun towards wealth.

Jannat has an underlining message that crime does not pay, making it a sheer ‘heaven’ to watch.
