Based on the bookies who are involved in the match-fixings, Jannat from the Bhatt banner has home-boy Emraan Hashmi in the lead role again. Though the story seemed to have potential, poor acting skills and poorer narration causes the film to be unbearable. Emraan looks plain old-someone who is tired and fatigued. What is it with him anyways? Does he only feel active when he is asked to kiss his co-star? Pathetic dialogue delivery and boring expressions that remain constant through joy, grief, pain, love and greed are sure to make you yawn.
It seems absurd how a person can simply predict the result of a match-that too in a game like cricket- and laugh his way to the bank. The girl, Sonal, has been projected in an extremely poor light. Her objective in life in the first half seems to be simply laughing at every second word and looking good. It is also strange how she-at a time of extreme grief- lands up singing in a bar with her boyfriend staring at her with an irritable expression in his face. Doesn't the girl ever feel it necessary to find out where exactly all the money comes from? Or is she too innocent to do that?
Songs by Pritam are not at all up to the mark. Pritam has delivered much better tracks before this and every song in the film reflects a supreme disgust on his part of having to compose the music for this film.
Coming back to Emraan, he seriously needs to brush up his skills on acting if he wishes to do meaningful films. He is at a loss throughout the movie, just as the script. Jannat is a movie to be watched only when you have absolutely nothing to do and no other movies at your disposal. Or when you have to make a choice between Hashmi and Himesh!
