Jab Tum Kaho is a movie that is made because some people needed a job. Director had no passion behind making this movie. This is a movie that would have been outdated at the 80s. In this age not many people will watch a movie like Jab Tum Kaho.
I don’t really get why people make movies like Jab Tum Kaho. Do they expect people to go see this movie? As a reviewer I had to watch the film. But I watched the movie almost alone in a theater. No this movie is not going to be a HIT. But I am still praying for the movie, I will explain why later.
I went to see Jab Tum Kaho with a positive mind. I have to say this out loud, I do like Parvin Dabas. I think he is one of the most handsome men that ever worked in Bollywood. He is also not a bad actor at all. But he is not from the film industry.
Handsome hunk Parvin Dabas never really got many chances as the leading man. He always played second banana roles. Those movies also did not do well at the box office. This is why we do not get to hear a lot about Parvin Dabas.
In Jab Tum Kaho, Parvin is the hero in a true sense. He is playing the role of a guy named Kumar. He is a successful guy. But he does not have any jest left for life. He wakes up, goes to work and then goes back to sleep. He is also tired of answering the question when he is going to get married. Indian men and women just do not understand that they cannot ask people this question. Kumar hates everyone.
Then one day he receives an anonymous call. A girl calls him and tells him that she is interested in him. Kumar first tries to ignore her. Then he goes to Kolkata to meet her. They even rent a hotel to have fun. At that moment, I was hoping that Jab Tum Kaho will have an unpredictable ending. But I was wrong. Anyway, Parvin gave his heart to this role. He is great as Kumar. But sadly the movie has no direction. Director Vikram Shankar was not sure what kind of movie he wanted to make. Parvin deserves better director and script than this movie.
Parvin Dabas is really good and even at this age he is so very attractive. Shirin Guha is also okay. For the actors’ sake, I am praying this movie to do well at the box office.
Multiple music directors composed the songs. They are not bad if you listen to them as an audio. But the songs filmed in the really boring way. At the end, I would like to tell that if you love Parvin then go and watch Jab Tum Kaho. If this movie earns back its money then we will be able to see this talented and handsome man in more movies.
