User Reviews: The successful combination of Mahesh Bhatt’s production team and Emraan Hashmi have teamed up once again after Awarapan for this drama. The story is about the life of a bookie who becomes a cricket match fixer. Mukesh Bhatt’s production house delivers great music and hard-hitting plots.
Their latest film Jannat is terrific. The film has a very different story that keeps you interested & entertained right from start to end. Generally I don’t have any interest in gambling, betting or cricket match fixing but the story was told in a stylish format, it was about 2 hours 20 minutes and I enjoyed every second of it and there wasn’t a single boring or useless scene. I’m glad that there isn’t another film about revenge or love because I’m sick of those.
The best thing about the movie is that it shows that a person who spends money unwisely has an ability that can make him rich which cannot happen in real life. It also shows that you shouldn’t push your luck and money can only be earned by hard work. The music is great as usual from the Bhatt’s production house and the best songs are Zara Sa & Judai. Overall Jannat is one of Emraan Hashmi’s best film and has a good message that we can all learn from. Other than that it was shot in great locations at Cape Town of South Africa.
