Jeet’s Josh

Directed by: Ravi Kinnagi

Starring: Jeet, Shrabanti, Puneet Issar, Anshuman

With Wanted, he had showed he was still ‘wanted’ by his fans. With Josh, Jeet proves he is still one of the most joshila heroes around. A packed house at Indira greeted the angry young man of Juddha, Kranti and Wanted who morphed into a ‘motormouth guy next door’ in Josh to loud cheers and ceetis on Sunday afternoon.

Here’s how the story unfolds. The adorable Indra (Jeet) is smitten by his friend’s sister Anu (Shrabanti), a pretty girl who studies in Singapore and is back home for a holiday. Indra accompanies his friend to his ancestral village home to propose to her.

But not all’s well with this village as a notorious realtor Rudra (Puneet) goes on a killing spree, targeting the whole of Anu’s family. Indra, still fighting shy of his feelings, flees with Anu. He brings her to his large family of sisters and brothers, nephews and cousins, where Anu has a great time till Rudra’s men hunt them down.

Now, the romantic lover boy shows his angry side and gives the goons a taste of his biceps. But Indra still doesn’t have the heroine. Because he still chokes while saying ‘I love you’. So, moments before Anu is to hop on a Singapore-bound flight, a common friend spills the beans to her and ensures a happy ending.

Thumbs up: Jeet looks dashing all through, be it while dancing with firang babes or bashing the baddies. Shrabanti not just looks different with little make-up but also switches to a mellowed, restrained performance. Rituparna Sengupta’s Trishna hero Anshuman is good as Jeet’s friend and Shrabanti’s brother.

DoP Kumud Verma deserves a special mention for his pretty frames — the Calcutta skyline looks beautiful against Vidyasagar Setu. And Jeet Gannguly’s music rocks.

Thumbs down: It’s time action director Judo Ramu changed his fighting styles — only Tolly heroes do such dated sword fights.
