Umrao Jaan a moving story and kya Ada from Aish!
Aug 09, 2007 11:53 PMRead
Umrao Jaan a moving story of a tragic woman and what Ada from Aish!Fortunately, I have not seen the original version starring Rekha so I was able to view this film with an open mind, without making unfair comparisons with the original.Umrao Jaan tells the powerful; story of a young girl ...Read More

Umrao Jaan Me Jaan Nahi
May 13, 2007 08:14 AMRead
As an immense Hindi movie buff, I love seeing myself get engaged for 3 hours or so irrespective of how the movie turns out at the end. I have watched good cinema, not so good ones, bad ones and at times really bad cinema. Umrao Jaan falls in the last category. Despitewatching some bad movies...Read More

Movie Review : Umrao Jaan
Feb 24, 2007 03:39 PMRead
Umrao Jaan is an adaptation of the book ‘Umrao Jaan Ada’ written in 1905 by a well known poet called ‘Ruswa.’ Whether the lovely courtesan, who was also known as the ‘heartbeat of Avadh’, and poetess existed or was the imagination of the poet is still debatable.His words were beautifully tra...Read More

Umrao Jaan ne to jaan he le lee
Jan 12, 2007 05:05 PMRead
The title is not my'creation'. It is the comment that came straight from'dil se' of on of the movie watchers in the theater.No offenses, but Umrao Jaan proves that JP Dutta should stick to arms and ammunition only or should I say he is better off on the'Borders' and so should stay away from ...Read More

A Horrible Experience
Dec 12, 2006 02:41 AMRead
Hindi cinema has come a long way. Some of the latest movies like Bluffmaster, Lage raho.. show a great leap in the overall moviemaking techniques used in Bollywood. J P Dutta really disappoints by putting together such a pathetic show.Let's talk about the techniques or the lack there of. Cin...Read More

Umrao Jan Ada
Dec 08, 2006 11:13 PMRead
A good movie retold but not exactly to the same level as the master.Comparisons are obvious.There was Rekha - the origianl adakaara. Here we have Ash and she can't take over the show like the diva herself.The movie is well taken. Here Umrao Jan tells her story. Sunil Shetty plays vil...Read More

Umrao jaan ne khaaye kaan
Dec 02, 2006 09:56 PMRead
The only reason I watched the film was to redeem aishwarya and abhishek and maybe the film from the 1980's umrao jaan fans. I hadnt seen the old umrao jaan and was willing to give the cast and director the chance to prove themselves with this period epic. Since I had nothing to compare it to (i ...Read More

Umrao Jaan-E Bhi do Yaaron
Nov 16, 2006 06:27 PMRead
A film maker of the status of J.P. Dutta carries the onus of validating his position and his credibility effectively, with every new film he essays. yet Umrao Jaan despite being a subject par excellence failed to strike a chord.The trouble with this film is primarily one of sincerity of appr...Read More

Usually I am a person who doesn't even think of watching such movies...slow...dull...pale...but I was taken aback...i waswrong...I have loved watching every scene of this movie...oh my god...i still dont believe I love this much that now I am eager to watch the original version en...Read More

Umrao zzzzzzaaaan
Nov 15, 2006 10:50 PMRead
What was Mr Dutta thinking when he decided to remake a classic like Umrao Jaan..nothing I guess and I also believe that he hasn't seen the original.....coz if he had ,he would realise how he has murdered a great movie.The direction is sloppy, the acting below average, the pace slow and the m...Read More

Not for Youth !!
Nov 15, 2006 06:46 PMRead
The movie might say a tale which might not interest current youth. The movie tells a story which is sad and actually will very little jeal. When a person comes to watch a movie he or she wants to have a good time, but watching this movie was like seeing somebodies horror to the last extent.T...Read More

Ash - The only redeeming factor of the movie
Nov 12, 2006 12:33 PMRead
Watched Umrao Jaan more because my mom was keen to watch the same. And I am still regretting my decision on acquiescing to the same.The movie was bad.The biggest flaw with the movie was that it came across moreas alow budget documentary of Umrao's life.The splendour, the richness, the ma...Read More

Umraooo Jaannnnn !!!!!
Nov 10, 2006 02:29 PMRead
First let me tell u all that y did I go for this movie. Its just because I had won couple tickets for the movie at PVR cinemas, that I had not visited before, and when u get free tickets u don't say 'No'. Otherwise despite being an Aishwarya Fan I would have never gone for the movieas I had an i...Read More

Where's the ada ?
Nov 10, 2006 12:55 PMRead
JP Dutta is known for the length of his movies . His last movie (L.O.C) has the distinction of being one of the longest Hindi movies ever made . A running time of 4+(F-O-U-R) hours . 2 intervals. The longest song shown on-screen ( 13 min!!) . So it was not without some apprehension that I went t...Read More

I have recentlyseen the very eagerly awaited movie UMRAO JAAN.First of all, I am not able to understand why did JP Dutta have chosen old UMRAO JAAN tO remake.After all it was not a commercial success.It did well only in certaincircuits.Old UMRAO JAANwas starring Rekha and its musicwassuperhit.Ne...Read More

Umrao Jaan: Remake not upto mark
Nov 07, 2006 08:14 PMRead
This exactly is not one of my kind of movie. I had been hearing a lot about Rekha starrer Umrao Jaan of 80's over last few days and that prompted me to watch the filmI only liked the initial part of the movie, which covered the song Salaam.., introduction of Abhishek Bachchan, and a few of h...Read More

She is brought up there under the tutelage of a Madam, Khanum Sahib (Shabana Azmi) and is taught the art of dance and music, until she grows up to be the poetess and cour...Read More
