Article about the movie from Screen Magazine, Illustrated with new pics ! 

The day writer-director Mansoor Khan, came up with the idea of working on a story which he was fully confident of, he was fully excited (Josh). Soon he added some more ideas to his own original ideas (story-screenplay and dialogue by Mansoor himself) and he realised that the excitement was not just ordinary excitement but the kind that covered a complete range of exciting entertainment which is what filmmaking is all about. He worked harder. There were times when his confidence staggered but he did not give up his original idea because he was sure that ideas like the one he had worked on do not fail if they are pursued with perseverance and hard work and above all the Josh (excitement) to make the film that would appeal to every section of society.

Josh has been three years in the making and makes for an interesting cast and story. Going off the theme of copying, Josh is a lift off of Westside Story, so who better to lift tunes for the remake than Anu Malik himself? Now, one mistake that Anu Malik made sure not to repeat in such a hyped-up and much-awaited for, big cast flick is singing any of the songs himself. That itself is enough for me to buy the album off the bat. Now the singers are a good variety, ranging from Udit to Alka (the traditional voices) to more pop-like (non-traditional) singers of Hema Sardesai and Abhijeet, and fresher voices of Suresh Peters and Mano, to the most interesting singer of all, Shahrukh himself.

Aamir Khan is going to watch Josh  -Dhiraj Shetty

A two-hero, one heroine movie. Nothing new about that one. But what happens if Bollywood's top hero and heroine play siblings? Now that's something to look forward to! Added to it is the game of one-upmanship between Hrithik Roshan and Shah Rukh Khan. Imagine SRK's fate if the movie falls flat on its face.
So, to tackle that all important question: How does Josh compare with Kaho Naa.... Pyaar Hai? Well, all we can say is, it's in a different league altogether.
Does that mean it's curtains for SRK? No way!!!
Rakesh Roshan went halfway round the world, to New Zealand actually, to ensure the right backdrop for KNPH, Josh's director Mansoor Khan settled for our own Goa. More.....

 

Movie Review by Taran Adarsh   

   Set against the backdrop of Goa, Venus Records & Tapes Ltd.'s JOSH is a story about energy, youth, love and the zest for life. Max (Shah Rukh Khan), a cool Goan dada, is the leader of Eagle gang, which is constantly up in arms with the new inhabitants of Vasco town, Prakash (Sharad Kapoor), and his pack of the Bichhu gang. The two gangs revel in this enmity and love to showoff their strength to each other.
     This enmity is further complicated when Prakash's city-bred brother, Rahul (Chandrachur Singh), falls in love with Max's twin-sister, Shirley (Aishwarya Rai). Rahul, a sensible young boy, does not agree with the mindless violence the two gangs resort to. In the end, the film confirms that mindless violence leads to destruction.Inspired by WEST SIDE STORY,...More...

Mansoor Khan has the reputation of being a different kind of director.

And now this different kind of director is all set to storm the marquee with a different tale - Josh.

Josh does blaze a unique trail.

For one, it doesn't star Mansoor's famous cousin Aamir Khan who has been a constant fixture in all his earlier films, Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar and Akele Hum Akele Tum. Josh stars another popular Khan - Shah Rukh Khan. How did this improbable casting come about? More...

 

We speak to the Producer Ratan Jain of Venus.

The producer of Josh, Venus boss Ratan Jain who has earlier worked with Shah Rukh Khan on Baazigar, Yes Boss and Badshah also roots for Josh, the director Mansoor Khan and the Shah Rukh Khan Aishwarya Rai combo.

"The best part of the film is the storyline. It's very different from the rest of the run-of the mill stuff .Consider this, the film pairs the top two stars of the day , Shah Rukh  and Aishwarya, but as brother and sister." The producer is obviously more thrilled than apprehensive about the unusual casting. More...
