Jaane Kahan Se Aayi hai - External Reviews

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

Stay put. You'll live without knowing where this one came from! It tries to be funny, but is barely so. It tries even harder to be sweet and romantic and ends up being yucky-mushy. So, neither this nor that, nothing other than Riteish's performance to look out for.
