Aamir Khan has proved that he is one of the few talented directors from the industry who believes in perfection. It is learnt that Aamir who was known for his ghost direction for most of his movies, repeats history, yet again
Aamir’s next production Jaane Tu Yaa Jane Na marks the debut of his nephew Imraan Khan. However Mansoor Khan who was a recluse from the Bollywood circuit for several years, decided to make a come back when he came to know that his cousin Nauzhat’s son Imraan is making his debut in this film.
It can be recalled that Jane Tu Ya Jane Na was initially supposed to be produced by Jhamu Sughand but however things didn’t fall in place and Aamir came to rescue his nephew’s debut project. Aamir chose A R Rahman instead of Himesh Reshmmiya who was supposed to compose the music of Jane Tu Ya Jane Na.
Needless to say, Aamir and Mansoor both are very particular that the film has to be a right film for Imraan’s career, hence both are keeping a check on everything, from scripting to directing. The two are so engrossed that they have apparently forgotten that a known writer Abbas Tyrewala, is the director of the film.
A unit hand informs that Aamir has been involved since the scripting stage of the film. “Abbas Tyrewala is one of the best known script writers of the film, but as usual Aamir gives his creative inputs. Things were okay till the scripting and direction stage but now the film is complete”, revealed the unit hand.
Continuing on the same vein, the insider said, “But when Tyrewala started editing it, Aamir began attending the editing room more often. Earlier he gave some inputs but later when the director did not agree with his views, Aamir started intruding more and made changes accordingly. Once when Tyrewala disapproved of Aamir’s excessive involvement with the editing of the film, Aamir was enraged. Finally Aamir had a heated argument with the director.”
Aamir is infamous for his interfering act. Before this he was known for interfering in Amol Gupte’s work and eventually he ended up directing Tare Zameen Par which marked his directorial debut. “This time he is producing his second as a producer but Aamir showed more interest in scripting and editing of this film. It won’t come as a surprise to anyone if Aamir drops director Abbas’s name as a director,” opines the source.
Would JAANE TU YA JAANE NAA turn out to be the QAYAMAT SE QAYAMAT TAK of the 21st century? If reactions from trade as well as ‘aam junta’ have to be gauged then this pretty much seems to be happening.
“What had worked most in case of QSQT was its innocence”, says a trade expert, “People didn’t know what to expect from the film but the moment Aamir Khan and Juhi Chawla came on screen, they could sense that romance couldn’t have been more innocent and pure. It was a young film which struck the chord across age groups in a major way. I see something similar happening for JAANE TU YA JAANE NAA as well.”
How exactly? “Well, the first promo itself was an indication of things to come. Neither did it try to be overtly mushy nor did it give an impression that JTYJN was one of your usual mushy/romantic movies. Simplicity was the key word in QSQT and it pretty much seems to be the case in JTYJN as well”, he goes on to add.
Nostalgia is certainly revisited if one looks at the first song that is currently on air.
“There is a lot expected from A.R. Rahman here, especially since he is making music for a film that marks the launch of Aamir Khan’s nephew Imraan. In the recent past, Aamir and A.R Rahman have created magic in LAGAAN and RANG DE BASANTI, though MANGAL PANDEY wasn’t all that exciting. With JAANE TU YA JAANE NAA, it should be time for some young music again.”
Directed by debutant filmmaker Abbas Tyrewala (who has also written the lyrics), JAANE TU YA JAANE NAA is being presented under the banner of Aamir Khan Productions and PVR Cinema. Genelia D’Souza is the female lead opposite Imraan. The film releases on 4th July all over, the same day as LOVE STORY 2050 which has another debutant, Harman Baweja, being launched opposite Priyanka Chopra.
