Barely has TA RA RUM PUM released and Yash Raj Films is now ready with their next offering JHOOM BARABAR JHOOM. Promo of the film has been released and if the two minutes of playtime is any indication, the film is certainly going to be second consecutive super success for director Shaad Ali and Abhishek Bachchan [after BUNTY AUR BABLI].
While BUBTY AUR BABLI was mostly rustic, JHOOM BARABAR JHOOM gets innovative as it transports a rustic character (played by Abhishek) into a foreign land (UK) where he meets with a young-n-urban woman (Preity Zinta), who is already engaged.
Though Shaad's touch as carried forward from SAATHIYA and BUNTY AUR BABLI is very much visible in JHOOM BARABAR JHOOM too, what takes it a step forward is an overall glossy look that the film carries with promise of some funky music by Shankar Ehsaan Loy.
Gulzar saab is at the helm of writing lyrics for this film that looks all set to be an exciting entertainer arriving this July. Bobby Deol and Lara Dutta complete the main starcast of the film while Amitabh Bachchan, in an interesting getup of a Red Indian/cow boy, plays a 'sutradhar' (narrator).
If all this was not enough, the cake is taken by one of the scenes in the film where a gawky sounding Abhishek can't help but ask an already-engaged Preity if she had already done it all with her fianc?!
