JJWS is often suspected of copying Peter Yates’ 1979 classic, Breaking Away starring Dennis Quaid, Dennis Christopher, Jackie Earle Haley and Daniel Stern. But barring the thematic similarity -- four friends, class barriers, bicycle racing, father-son communication gap -- both are distinctly different movies.

Mansur ali khan decided to make movie on sports and then he shoot 49% of movie with new stars. But unsatisfied with the work he was about to scrap it but Amir khan read the script and suggested to change it and he him self took the lead role with some artist and see the magic touch of aamir khan it was big hit. Aamir khan learn movie making and scripting and direction and all parts of it during these days and voilla he gave us a hit lagaan as a producer.

I rarely do comment.Last time it was the film 'Arjun'where I offered my comments. Now this time for 'JJWS'. What classic from MANSOOR who is nowadays doing what he like in the nature bounty at Cunnoor.

Those days even average movies are better dignified than now-a-days movies. People like Amir, Kamal Hasan etc have raised to mega star level due to their neat, story, action oriented movies in the early years. As time changed to 2000s, the value system deteriorated. Vulgarity (dress code) took center stage, and same classic actors had changed their attitude too and fallen.
If they stuck to the dignity level, perhaps they could have remained as Mega stars even now. This has coincided with boy-girl friend, Valentine, live-in, Kiss and Love concepts in the society which were very rare those days.
