Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai, the directorial venture of writer turned director Milap Zaveri is a light hearted comic love story that actually follows the "Man from earth, Woman from Venus" criterion. The move brings together the Aladin couple, Ritesh Deshmukh and Jaqueline Fernandes along with Ruslaan Mumtaz and Sonal Sehgal in supporting roles. The movie also boast of special appearance by many celebrities like Akshay Kumar, Priyanka Chopra, Sajid Khan and Farah Khan. With love stories being the favorite genre of Bollywood, does Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai have a niche to stand tall and make its mark?

Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai (JKSAH) has a one man narrative story, narrated by our hero himself - Rajesh Parekh (Ritesh Deshmukh). Rajesh Parekh, working as an assistant director, is a born loser when it comes to charming girls and falling in love. With a porn and sex addict Kaushal (Vishal Malhotra) as his only friend. On the other hand, Desh (Ruslaan Mumtaz), the youngest superstar, gets all the female attention he needs but he too is devoid of true love. Frustrated with his dull life , Rajesh cries out to God to send him his love. Up comes a dazzling young girl Tara (Jaqueline Fernandes) from the planet Venus, who has come all the way to earth in search of her true love.

JKSAH is a tale of people in search of love. Tara falls for the irresistible Desh and takes help from Rajesh to win his heart. But then the story soon takes a triangle love story twist with Rajesh developing hots for Tara. So who gets whom and how, makes the rest of the story.

Milap Zaveri's JKSAH is a regular opposites-attract triangular love story which had the potential to be a great comic entertainer but the amateurish and naive script gave it all away. A well directed laugh inducing first half is followed by a terribly clichéd and predictable second half that kills the overall joy of the film. The movie starts of really well with comedy flowing in naturally. However, the fun beings to fade gradually with comedy and romance forcibly induced with clumpy situations filled with way too many characters and hence the movie soon gets agonizing. While the underdeveloped characters who over act provide you absolutely no chance to connect, the cheesy and heavy romantic lines gets on your nerves. Music is no saving grace either for it has absolutely no retention value.

Besides a few funny moments, the only other positive in the movie could be Ritesh Deshmukh, that again matters only if you atleast are a fan of his. He manages to get his comic timing right and tickles a few funny bones however his emotional and romantic sequences need a bit of polishing. Jaqueline Fernandes looks gorgeous but is no different in her act from her first flick Aladin. Ruslaan Mumtaz is good as the young heartthrob. Sonal Sehgal is a revelation and looks promising. Vishal is perfect for his silly role.

To sum up, Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai, with just few moments of laughter is low on entertainment value. Yet another forgettable romantic flick for the year.
