Must watch for quality cinema lovers
8 April 2014 | by brij-raychandaSee all my reviews

Watched movie JAL today.

I was having very less expectations from it but heard that its good and seem to watch once when i had seen its trailer, but after watching it made me to write a review about it.. I think this movie took Bollywood to another heights.

Acting, Cinematography, Script, Screenplay, Music everything was too good. Background score and its lyrics was written by sonu nigam & one other guy. Yup u heard right. its sonu nigam and he did superb job.

Before interval it has everything, Romance, Fun, Drama and after interval movie geared up. I like how the movie ended and set a punch in climax. Purab kohli, Tanistha chatterjee, Kirti kulhari, were perfect in their roles.

I think everyone who likes to watch some different and really appealing quality movie should watch this one.

My rating - 4.1/5
