The total runtime of Visual FX in this movie was more than Jurassic Park (1993) and was featured in Guinness Book of World Records for some time.

Originally the song "Anbe Anbe" was recorded with less percussion than what it has now. A R Rahman, who composed the song, gave it to director Shankar for picturisation. After seeing the visuals of the song, Rahman decided to add more sound effects to the song to make it rich.

Raju Sundaram who plays the role of Aishwarya Rai's brother, is also the dance choreographer of the movie.

Bollywood Brass Band did a instrumental version of "Kehta Hai Mera Dil" for the album Rahmania.

In the song "Vaarayo", you can hear Aishwarya Rai calling her grandmother "Miss World". Aishwarya Rai came into the world of movies after she became Miss World in 1994.

The movie was initially titled "genes". Later the makers thought that the word "genes" would not appeal to semi urban and rural viewers . Hence they renamed the movie to a much trendy name "jeans" .

    I remember how crazy I used to be about this movie when I was a kid. It was the most expensive Tamil movie made then and the hype and hoopla when it released were phenomenal. I even performed one of the songs, 'columbus' on stage in school when I was a kid.

    Speaking only of the Tamil version, this film is the only one directed by Shankar which is not related to social issues and is predominantly a love story (a rarity these days). Sure watching it then and now, it is a totally different experience. Then, the story, scenes, sets, leads, acting were an eye-opener. Now though, everything seems rather cheesy but the movie sure sustains its nostalgia, beauty (of young Aishwarya and the locations) and the special effects.

    No matter what, this movie always holds a special place in my heart as it reminds me of my childhood.

    I saw the Tamil version and it was really good. I don't know the about the Hiindi version, but I heard it SUCKED. I love the Tamil version. What I really liked was the realistic idea of it. I know a few fathers do want their sons or daughters to marry to the same family. So, the movie had something that really happens. Unlike other movies where the ideas they have nothing to do with real life but has no science fiction in it.The fantastic part was the first part where the twins and the family meet. It was really funny and it made the movie worth seeing. Even if it was only a few parts that were somewhat funny that it was somewhat like "laughing while rolling on the floor". This was one of the things that I liked about this movie. I also fall for romantic movies which has a happily ever after. I know they aren't real or anything, but this movie does have real facts.Well, this movie was made in 1998, and even if it is old, it is worth seeing. But I should tell you, some of the scenes might be silly.

    This is one of the few Indian movies that is unique in many ways. First of all, a large part of it is set within the USA as well as other parts of the world. Second, it is dubbed in Hindi(originally, I believe in Tamil). Excellent cinematography. Great music from A R Rehman. Worth watching on DVD. Aishwrya Rai is very beautiful. Cool and pleasing. Not much of a story. Ignore typical South Indian style melodramatic parts. Hi-tech. Virtual reality computer generated dances are great.

    In the final scene of this movie, during a wedding, the two romantic leads play a joke on their guests by having hologramic images of themselves shoot each other in the head. The guests go crazy and then the T-Rex from Jurassic Park (via holograms and being literally stolen from Jurassic Park), the T-Rex starts throwing tables and chairs around. Once the guests realize the T-Rex is a mere hologram, they all began to laugh heartily. The holographic dead bodies of the bride and groom turn into skeletons and start dancing like Michael Jackson. Everything I have said actually happens in this movie.

    Jeans is a very excellent movie set in the US. It is one of the expensive movies in India history.The storyline is good and uses new technology. But some are not logic such like the grandma operation... Viewers should give a chance to watch it.

    This is one of the most exciting movies ever in Tamil cinema,with whole group of talented actors.The high point of the movie are its songs with the exciting tunes of A.R.RAHMAN and a particular song which is shot in different wonder's of the world.The movie begins in US with a bang,the acting of actress Lakshmi makes the movie so pleasant to watch.The village sequences are shot in the backdrops of Tamilnadu which adds the beauty to the movie.The acting of former miss world Aishwarya Rai is good that you could watch her repeatedly in those scenes.The graphics effect showing Prashant as twins is a treat to watch.Whole together it is a must watch "TAMIL" movie.....

    I don't understand a lot of negative reviews.This movie is a marvelous work of imagination and creativity. -A very nice love story. -The cast of movie is nice,the actors have done a really great job in portraying the character. -The songs and bgm's are the best! -Aishwariya and Prasanth pair looks lovely.AISH looks gorgeous especially in all the songs. -It gives a great break from the usual story line of the Indian movies -The vfx is not comparable to recent films but considering the time of its making it is such a great feat.In fact it had its place in Guinness for beating Jurassic park in vfx length. The movie overall gives a pleasant feel.

    Don't go around looking for logics.Just watch movie and it will never disappoint you. In my opinion this movie is a MASTERPIECE,the best i have seen and will always have a place in my heart.

    Here in the States, we don't get a ton of Indian films though, fortunately, Netflix has a decent selection. One problem I have when watching the film, however, is that although most Indian films we get have musical numbers, OFTEN the songs themselves are without captions--meaning we aren't exactly sure WHAT they are singing!! This is really annoying and I hope that they catch on and start captioning them fully--and unfortunately "Jeans" is yet another film without captioned songs.

    "Jeans" is one of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's first films and her co-star is Prashanth--who plays BOTH identical twin brothers, Vishvanath and Ram Mohan (this is how they are listed in the credits on IMDb, but in the translation I saw it was Vishu and Ramu). Considering how complicated it was to film it this way (particularly in dance scenes where BOTH danced together), you wonder why they didn't get real identical twins to play the roles! Regardless, the plot is quite enjoyable but also incredibly stupid--the sort of thing that is familiar to old American sit-coms but which is hard to sustain for a three hour film.

    The film begins in the United States. An Indian family has brought their whiny grandmother to the States for brain surgery. Things get royally screwed up and the family doesn't know what to do--thank goodness a nice young Indian doctor is there to help them out of their predicament. Later, when they are about to return to their country, the granddaughter (Aishwarya Rai Bachchan) realizes she's fallen in love with the doctor. Here is the complication--although her family heartily approves of the marriage, his father doesn't. His reason is bizarre and you'll just have to see about this yourself. Suffice to say that he'll only approve if his son marries a woman who has a twin sister who can marry the doctor's twin brother! But she has no sister--and the grandmother comes up with an idea straight from a bad comedy--have Rai Bachchan pretend to be TWO GIRLS--both twins! It naturally leads to all sorts of confusions and silly situations and by the end, the truth comes out and the marriage looks like a no-go. What are the young lovers to do?! If you are looking for a believable film or one that is cerebral, then you should keep looking. As for me, I could suspend disbelief and just enjoy the film. My feeling, though, is that the film was at its best when it focused on romance and slipped a bit when Rai Bachchan became two people. There are a few weird and enjoyable songs (such as the one with a T-Rex and skeletons) and the film is never dull. Worth seeing but not among the cast's best films.

    By the way, despite what they showed in the film, there is no University of Los Angeles. The closes they have us UCLA--not ULA. Also, throughout the film, they show scenes of Los Angeles interspersed with Las Vegas-- cities 265 miles apart!! Perhaps folks back in India won't notice this but most Americans would! Later, in another song, they bounce from Los Angeles to New York to the Grand Canyon!! I've seen this sort of strange geography in a few other Indian films--such as another of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's Tamil films, "I Have Found It".

    Excellent movie done by Mr.Shankar. Music was scored by A.R.Rahman. In one song(Adhisayam) we can see all seven wonders in the song. This is specialty of this film.

    This is one of the few movies I have seen with such lousy continuity. People erupt into song and dance for no apparent reason and do weird things like burning laptops and mobile phones (this is apparently to destress themselves!). The lead actress is good looking and some of the music is not all that bad. This is a movie to be seen in at most 15 minute bites.

    This is one of the god awful movies that I have seen.There have been mindless tear jerkers before.Ridiculous stunt scenes and hamming heroes.But this one beats them all.

    Prashant is an awesomely mysterious actor.He is better looking than many of his contemporaries.Dances better than many of the other tamil heroes.And tries pretty hard to act too.But bundled all together he is as smooth as a National Highway through tamil nadu.Bumpy is not the word!And when there are two of them.Double trouble.

    Aish is cute??Maybe.But she got the same personality as does her poster in my friends room!Please fellas.Unless you want to be tortured you might give this one a miss! Raju Sundaram is hilarious though.
