Bollywood bad-boy Salman Khan stars in screenwriter/director Shirish Kunder's romantic tale of two men who share an intense love the same woman, but just can't seem to find the words to express their heartfelt feelings.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Viewers who are not already Bolly-heads are likely to be appalled."
‑ David Chute, L.A. Weekly
"Why every New Yorker has a British accent is a mystery, but the musical number built around Piya and Agastya's engagement is worth its weight in rupees."
‑ John Anderson, Newsday
"Fantasy, wit and biting humour combine, breathing life into the otherwise staid 'love triangle' formula."
‑ Poonam Joshi, BBC.com
"We keep waiting for one of those outlandish musical treats to bring some life to the clichéd script. Kunder throws in a few breaks, but they're tepid and brief."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"Leave it to the ever-grating Salman Khan to render anyone's efforts moot."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"The film's transition from sight gags to tear-stained family drama is especially abrupt, and most of the musical sequences are undistinguished."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, Film Journal International
"Jaan-E-Mann (the title means 'beloved') has many of its genre's shortcomings, including a shaky hold on the line between farce and stupidity and a soapy, melodramatic denouement. But it also has personable stars."
‑ Anita Gates, New York Times
"The film has some minor flaws which do not fully deter from one's enjoyment. Kunder, who also wrote the screenplay, stages some spectacular musical numbers -- some of the best seen in recent years. The musical score by Anu Malik is lovely and enjoyable."
