Storyline

Paradise Builders is owned by Dhanraj, who lives a very wealthy lifestyle with his wife, Radha; son, Rajan; and daughter, Anjali. His aim to take possession of the nearby village, which is now occupied by fishermen, headed by Shankar Rao, who lives there with his wife and two sons, Amar and Arun. Dhanraj's attempts to take possession prove to be in vain. Then the inevitable happens when Amar and Anjali meet and fall in love with each other, much to the chagrin of both Shankar and Dhanraj. While Shankar wants Amar to continue to follow his profession, Dhanraj wants Anjali to wed U.S.-based Shekhar Gupta, the son of the owner of Gupta Investments. Push leads to shove, and Dhanraj asks Rajan to set fire to the village. As a result, Rajan and Arun get killed. A grief-stricken Dhanraj swears on his son's ashes that he will avenge this death by killing Amar - at any and all costs. Watch what impact this has on the Rao family, as well as on Amar and Anjali.

Jaanam - A forgotten movie
14 September 2005 | by kantampatelSee all my reviews

Vishesh Films production 'Jaanam' is a movie which is not been remembered by any moviegoer, I happen to watch this on DVD, It is a love story of pooja(Pooja Bhatt) and Rahul (Rahul Roy) with a several similarities from Hollywood blockbusters, it has been very poorly attempted by the débutant director Vikram Bhatt who later directed super hit Aamir Khan Starrer 'Ghulam' and 'Raaz'.

It is not just been copied from Hollywood movies but even been copied from forever Indian romantic classic 'Bobby'.

Music director Anu Malik is the only factor one can watch it, he has composed melodious songs and they are filmed beautifully as well.

The significant fact about this movie is, it has Oscar nominated 'Lagaan' director Ashutosh Gowarikar as a supporting actor and it is a first movie of today's successful director Vikram Bhatt who never admitted having done this in any of his interviews, may be because it was a historical disaster when it released in 1992.

Watch it for its songs, do not expect any further.
