Jaan-e-Mann: Let’s Fall In Love Again, Part 1

Dora helps us review another film. Here she answers some questions. Next time we’ll get her plot summary!

Who is in this movie? Salman Khan, Preity Zinta (is Shahrukh in it? Who’s the other guy?) Ed note: Akshay Kumar

Why did you like this movie? Because it had Salman Khan and it was an interesting movie that I could enjoy, and sometimes they talked in English.

What are some things that happen in the movie? Salman getting divorced, Salman having to leave his wife for a few months,

Where is it set? It starts in India, and then they go to New York City.

What are the people in NYC like? They are friendly, but they talk like Australians.

Who is Salman in love with? He is in love with Preity Zinta.

Who is Preity Zinta in love with? Salman

Is she in love with Salman the whole time? Umm… I really don’t know that.

Who else is in love? Akshay Kumar.

Did you like Akshay’s character? Yes.

Why? It was funny and amusing. He talked like an Indian.

What did you like about Salman’s character? He was nice.

Did he do anything funny? It wasn’t really funny, but it was kind of funny in an awkward way… Salman was acting like he didn’t care if Akshay married Preity Zinta.

Is there a villain in the movie? There sort of is. Pia’s (Preity Zinta) brother. But we don’t want to spoil it.

Were there are any songs you really liked? The song with all the dwarfs jumping out of closets and riding in motorcycles and singing: That song.

Why do you think they used dwarfs in that song? Were there any other dwarfs in the movie? Salman’s uncle was a dwarf.

Who played his uncle? (It is at this point that Sarah and I regret that Dora knows all about Salman Khan but doesn’t know anything about Anupam Kher).

Were there any things that you thought were silly or that really surprised you? When Salman snuck into Preity’s apartment, he found out Pia had a baby. He loves it.

With THAT surprising twist, it’s time for the…

      I’m definitely going to look those up! Kids have such a great take on movies. When we can stand to read the subtitles out loud (she’s not quite there yet) we love having her along for the experience.
