This feature film from India is in the Hindi language, with subtitles in English, and has a run time of 128 minutes. The worldwide release was on September 12, 2003, about two weeks after the director, Anant Balani, died of a cardiac arrest. The story line is of a retired celebrity judge, Justice Chatterjee, who starts jogging at "Joggers’ Park" to have an activity and meets Jenny, a young, bold, extrovert, who is a regular at this park (located in Bandra, Mumbai). The rest of the story is about what happens after they meet and the good character development, humor, and realistic dialogues allow this comedy/romance motion picture to develop well. The story concept, and movie producer, is credited to Subhash Ghai. The film company, Mukta Arts, shot this film in 38 days (on their smallest budget to date) and it is intended for young urban audiences rather than a mass appeal in India. Tabun Sutradhar was the music composer and the soundtrack has five songs in Hindi and two in English. The official web site of this film is located at Joggers Park.com and to place an order to purchase this film visit Amazon.com.com. Additional reviews are available and you may want to read one from the online edition of India’s National Newspaper: The Hindu.
