Jo Hum Chahein - External Reviews

wogma rating: Switch channels if it's on cable (?)
quick review:

An obnoxious, self-centered boy comes of age. And he cannot act. Neither can the women or men who help him come of age in their ways. And the women are a few of the most gullible ones I've seen in ages, even on screen!

Thumbs down by Anna Vetticad, annavetticadgoes2themovies ...On the bright side, Mundi is tall, has a lithe figure and in one song shot among rocks and by a water body, wears some of the loveliest dresses given to a Hindi film actress in recent times... full review

So-So by Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama ...In doing so, Pawan doesn't take the tried and tested route to narrate his tale. The love story isn't the type that would make you exclaim, 'Not again'.... full review

Thumbs down by Saumya Sharma, BookmyShow ...A few rare pluses were the songs for the tempo. These might make them an instant hit at the various discotheques and also considering that well-known names like Neeraj Sridhar and K.K. have lent their voices to the songs. ... full review

Thumbs down by Smita, Desi Martini ...Hum definitely nahi chahein... full review

Thumbs down by Blessy Chettiar, DNA ...The writing is amusing. Writer and director Pawan Gill garnishes his script with all the cheese in the world, using every possible English idiom to emphasise emotional tension... full review

Thumbs down by Deepa Gahlot, Film Impressions ...The screenplay of this YRF-wannebe chugs along over utterly uninteresting episodes in Rohan’s life, and the actors are just not equipped to deal with emotional complexities.... full review

So-So by Nupur Barua, ...Again, to give him credit, it is undoubtedly a sincere effort to portray the lives of some young people trying to realise their dreams, but the execution is shoddy, to say the least.... full review

Thumbs down by Martin D'Souza, ...story is clumsy to the core.... full review

So-So by Rajeev Masand, IBN Live ...Debutant writer-director Pawan Gill updates this familiar story with some real touches – the film's heroine doesn't shy away from pre-marital sex, and when it comes to having a baby she makes a rather radical choice. ... full review

Thumbs down by Shubhra Gupta, indian express ...the inexperience shows all around.... full review

Thumbs down Movie Talkies ...Now, the only positive thing that can be said about the movie is that the makers have spent money and talent on the cinematography part-for the movie has a rich feel to it, the kinds seen in Karan Johar and Yash Raj Films products... full review

Thumbs down by Karan Anshuman, Mumbai Mirror ...A simple love story without SRK's charm is pointless (actors, stop aping him). Invest instead in writers, who will give you - what studios like to call - 'high concept scripts'... full review

Thumbs down by Mansha Rastogi, Now ...Jo Hum Chahein should only remain as a show reel for both the newcomers to showcase their talent. As a film it fails to deliver... full review

Thumbs down by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies ...Not worth your time... full review

Thumbs down by Swati Rohatgi, STARDUST ...What deserves a special mention is the cinematography. From the looks of the film, one expects a trashy, half-done job in filmmaker but the glossy cinematography comes as a pleasant surprise.... full review

Thumbs down by Nikhat Kazmi, Times of India ...Essentially a non-happening film with mediocre acting. ... full review
