The music for the film was released on 6 September 2006. The music is composed by Anu Malik and includes a few playback singers forming the former contestants of Indian Idol. Lyrics are penned by Gulzar. According to the Indian trade website Box Office India, with around 1,250,000 units sold, this film's soundtrack album was the year's eighth highest-selling.
Pranab Kapadia, the UK distributor of Jaan-E-Mann said "Jaan-E-Mann's figures have picked up dramatically in Britain. Although the film grossed a mere 18,000 on its opening day, the film has experienced a remarkable upswing, grossing 40,000 on Monday and 60,000 on Tuesday. The audience and critics reception has been overwhelming."
Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama gave the film 3.5 out of 5, saying "On the whole, JAAN-E-MANN balances humor and emotions beautifully. In fact, it's a BIG film in all respects -- right from its cast to the extravagant sets to the lavish making, besides, of course, unadulterated entertainment it has to offer. At the box-office, the Diwali and Idd holidays will prove bountiful for the film and add to the big returns. Business-wise, JAAN-E-MANN should fare best at multiplexes and also at major centres, besides Overseas. But its business at comparatively smaller centres, where masala films dominate, is bound to be affected by DON's presence. However, if the strong word of mouth catches on, the business at smaller centres will add to its booty." Poonam Joshi of BBC.com gave the film 4 out of 5 stars, writing "Jaan-E-mann simultaneously parodies the worst elements of Hindi cinema, while exulting in the best that Bollywood has to offer, making for an unexpectedly original and entertaining film." Raja Sen of Rediff.com gave the film 3 out of 5 stars stating "In the end, what echoes in your ears as you leave is Akki's thick, goofy he-he-he laugh. It's the best thing in the film."
Sivandha Mann was released on 9 November 1969, Diwali day, and became a major commercial success, running for over 100 days in theatres. The film's success inspired many later Tamil and Telugu films to shoot in France. It was later remade by Sridhar in Hindi as Dharti (1970).
Sridhar began work on a film titled Andru Sinthiya Ratham, with M. G. Ramachandran starring. Though many scenes were shot, the film was ultimately shelved when Ramachandran backed out. According to Sridhar, the reason for Ramachandran backing out may have been that, since Sridhar launched both Kadhalikka Neramillai (1964) and Andru Sindhiya Ratham at the same time, he promoted Kadhalikka Neramillai as the first contemporary colour film but did not do the same for Andru Sindhiya Ratham, which may have made Ramachandran upset, causing him to leave. Sridhar later revived the project under the title Sivandha Mann with changes in the script, and Sivaji Ganesan as the new lead actor. It was the first action film directed by Sridhar, who previously made mainly romance and drama films. Sivandha Mann was also the first Tamil film to be shot extensively in foreign locations. Filming took place largely in Europe in places like Switzerland, France, Spain, Switzerland, and the Alps. The film was planned as a bilingual in Tamil and Hindi with Hema Malini being chosen as actress for the Tamil version, but she backed out due to her contract with Hindi cinema. The role went to Kanchana.
A river along with restaurant and bar had been created at Vauhini Studios for Sivandha Mann which was created by Ganga Das. Before filming began it gave way, leading to the entire place being flooded. An unfazed Sridhar decided to have the riverbed rebuilt with concrete. The song "Paarvai Yuvarani" was filmed at Eiffel Tower. For the film's climax, Sridhar wanted two helicopters as one helicopter will be used for handling camera to shoot the scene however he opted only one helicopter since the other helicopter which was supposed to arrive on the sets exploded after it got stuck by the electric wires. The filming was halted for few days due to the demise of Sridhar's mother later resumed at Chennai. Sridhar shot a train explosion scene at railway track at Cudappah, Andhra Pradesh as he wanted a railway track adjacent to two hills. The film was processed at Gemini Color Laboratory, and colourised via Eastmancolor. Cinematography was handled by N. Balakrishnan, and editing by M. N. Shankar. The final length of the film was 5,254.31 metres (17,238.5 ft).
The soundtrack was composed by M. S. Viswanathan, with lyrics by Kannadasan. The song "Oru Raja Raniyidam" attained popularity, as did the Arabic-themed "Pattathu Rani". Viswanathan called the tune "a mix of Persian form of music to support the sequence in the film".
Sivandha Mann was released on 9 November 1969, Diwali day. The Indian Express wrote on 15 November, "If you expect a story, expect any of the usual elements you are sure to be disappointed. The merit of the movie is that it makes no claim for projecting great ideals nor does it claim a story". The reviewer went on to say, "Sivaji Ganesan as a rebel hero does a good job. Muthuraman as his mentor is very arresting. M. S. Viswanathan's music will be long remembered". The film was a commercial success, running for over 100 days in theatres. After its success, many Tamil and Telugu films were also inspired to shoot in France. Sridhar remade the film in Hindi as Dharti (1970), with Ganesan playing the role originally played by Muthuraman.
Ayushmann Khurrana (born Nishant Khurrana; 14 September 1984) is an Indian actor and singer who works in Hindi films. Known for his portrayals of ordinary men often battling social norms, he is the recipient of several awards, including a National Film Award and four Filmfare Awards. He has appeared in Forbes India's Celebrity 100 list of 2013 and 2019, and Time named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2020.
Khurrana won the second season of reality television show MTV Roadies in 2004 and ventured into an anchoring career. He made his film debut in 2012 with the romantic comedy Vicky Donor, in which his performance as a sperm donor earned him the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut. Following a brief setback, he starred in the commercially and critically successful Dum Laga Ke Haisha (2015).
Khurrana established himself with several box-office hits, including the comedy-dramas Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017), Shubh Mangal Saavdhan (2017), Badhaai Ho (2018), Dream Girl (2019), and Bala (2019); the thriller Andhadhun (2018); and the crime drama Article 15 (2019). His performances as a blind pianist in Andhadhun and an honest cop in Article 15 won him two consecutive Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actor, and he also won the National Film Award for Best Actor for the former. This success was followed by several films that gained positive reviews but fared poorly at the box office.
Khurrana was born in a Punjabi Hindu family, on 14 September 1984 in Chandigarh to Poonam and P. Khurrana, as Nishant Khurrana. His parents changed his name to Ayushmann Khurrana when he was 3 years old. He was a part of Guru Nanak Khalsa College. He studied at St. John's High School, Chandigarh and DAV College, Chandigarh. He majored in English literature and has a master's degree in Mass Communication from the School of Communication Studies, Panjab University. He did serious theatre for five years. During his college days he has done several plays in Gaiety Theatre, Shimla. He was also the founding member of DAV College's "Aaghaaz" and "Manchtantra", which are active theatre groups in Chandigarh. He conceived and acted in street plays and won prizes in national college festivals such as Mood Indigo (IIT Bombay), OASIS (Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani) and St. Bedes Shimla. He also won a Best Actor award for playing Ashwatthama in Dharamvir Bharati's Andha Yug.
Two years later, after starring in the poorly received Meri Pyaari Bindu opposite Parineeti Chopra, Khurrana's career progressed with his two other films releases of 2017, the romantic-comedy dramas Bareilly Ki Barfi and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, both of which were commercially successful. Adapted from Nicolas Barreau's French novel The Ingredients of Love, the former starred him alongside Rajkummar Rao and Kriti Sanon as a writer who gets involved in a love triangle with a tomboyish girl and a timid salesman. Saibal Chatterjee of NDTV wrote that Khurrana does a "convincing job of mutating from a brooding jilted lover to a crooked manipulator who puts his own interests above everyone else's". In the latter, he starred opposite Pednekar as a newly engaged man suffering from erectile dysfunction. A remake of the Tamil film Kalyana Samayal Saadham (2013), the film, Khurrana hoped, had a humorous take on mental and sexual problems faced by men which would bring wider attention to the topic. Rajeev Masand took note of how well the film handled sexuality without being crude and commended him for "investing the fellow with genuine likeability and an understated charm". Khurrana received a nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Actor for the latter film.
For his next project, Khurrana actively looked for another mainstream film that would portray sexuality in a humorous manner. He found it in Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan (2020), in which he played a gay man who has trouble convincing his partner's family of their relationship. Shubhra Gupta of The Indian Express credited Khurrana for "allowing the film to be so much about" his lesser known co-star Jitendra Kumar. The film's box office was impacted by the shutdown of cinemas due to 2020 coronavirus pandemic. He was next seen in the comedy-drama Gulabo Sitabo, directed by Sircar and co-starring Amitabh Bachchan. Due to the pandemic, the film premiered directly on Amazon Prime Video. Pallabi Dey Puryakastha of The Times of India noted that Khurrana's "body language tellingly portrays sadness and bitterness borne out of poverty".
