Kunder may hit bull's eye with 'Jaan-e-Mann'Oct 18, 2006 IANS
New Delhi, Oct 18 (IANS) After choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan, it's her husband Shirish Kunder's turn to prove his mettle in Bollywood with his directorial debut "Jaan-e-Mann" - a triangular love story releasing Friday.
This Salman Khan-Akshay Kumar-Preity Zinta-starrer can turn into a surprise Diwali hit because both Akshay and Salman share a good onscreen chemistry and the audiences loved them together in "Mujhse Shaadi Karogi".
The film revolves around three college friends.
Suhaan Kapoor (Salman Khan), a cool dude and wannabe rock star, is full of himself and his dreams. Only when he's on the verge of losing everything, does he realise what really matters to him in life.
Agastya Rao (Akshay Kumar), a bespectacled geek, cannot talk to save his life and gets tongue-tied whenever he comes face to face with the woman he loves. But he believes in the power of love.
Piya Goyal (Preity Zinta) is a lovely, strong girl yet strangely vulnerable. She appears to have everything - beauty, brains, wealth and a heartache that refuses to die.
Both Agastya and Suhaan love Piya but they have to part ways after finishing studies. When they meet after 10 years, Suhaan is a well-known rock star, Agastya is working in a space station and Piya is a loner - they realise that in the decade that went by, all three had been unlucky in love.
The film's music is doing well and the promos have sparked off genuine interest. It's festival time and people enjoy family entertainers, so the film stands a good chance at the box office.
