Once in a while comes a movie created with painstaking effort and care, one that actually involves you and entertains you all through and leaves you longing for more. And sure enough, there would be very few people who would have watched Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar only once. For most youngsters it was an aspirational theme, and for the others, sweet regret for what might have been in their own lives. And for bicycle races, a dream run in popularity for at least a couple of years.

The location is the picturesque town of Dehradun. A number of schools and colleges compete for the Inter-College Cup every year, an honor bestowed upon the college with the most sporting talent, but the competition is primarily between two. The Rajput College, a college for rich preppies, has been consistent in winning the Cup, and the coach of Model School And College, Ramlal, doesn't like that one bit.

Ratan (Mamik) and Sanju (Aamir Khan) are Ramlal's sons, the former being the sports captain of Model School and a dedicated sportsperson, and the latter a lazy and a dedicated tapori. Anjali (Ayesha Jhulka) is in love with Sanju, not realizing that such emotions are lost on him. Sanju and his two friends spend all their time cutting classes, eying the girls of Queens College and dreaming.

When Devika (Pooja Bedi) enters Sanju's life, he supposes himself in love, and an Archie-Betty-Veronica situation is created. Meanwhile, Ratan is busy practicing for next year's cycling tournament, the deciding factor in the race for the Cup. But Shekhar (Deepak Tijori), last year's sports champion, has other plans, the result of which sees Ratan in the hospital, unable to participate in the championship. And it is now upto Sanju to conquer his demons (with some help from Anjali) and dedicate himself to winning the Cup.

With easy style and an amazing authenticity, Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar is a real treat. Songs like "Pehla Nasha" and "Yahan Ke Hum Sikandar", the beautiful locales of Dehradun, and, of course, Aamir Khan, make this the kind of movie you always expect to watch but rarely get to.

Aamir in the role of a 17-year-old is unbelievably cute, and there's really nothing more for me to say. This was probably Ayesha's only memorable performance - the subtle and understated dignity that she brought to the role made many male teen hearts wonder when a friend like that would come into their lives. If you haven't watched this one, believe me, you are missing something.
