Jeans (Tamil: ஜீன்ஸ்) is a 1998 Tamil musical romance film. Directed and written by Shankar and produced by Ashok Amritraj and Murali Manohar, it stars Prashanth, Aishwarya Rai and Nassar in the lead roles. Raju Sundaram and Lakshmi, prominent actors from the south Indian film industry, played the roles of the lead characters' relatives in the movie. The film features a successful soundtrack from A. R. Rahman, whilst Ashok Kumar and the pair of B. Lenin and V. T. Vijayan take care of the cinematography and editing respectively.

The film revolves around a Non-resident Indian man, Nachiappan, who has twin sons, Vishwanathan (Visu) and Ramamoorthy (Ramu). As a result of Nachiappan's separation from his twin brother, he wants his sons to be married to twins. However, Visu falls in love with a girl, Madhumitha, who visits the USA to help her grandmother remove a brain tumour. Visu and Ramu are medical students who are attached to the hospital where Madhu's grandmother has her operation, and mistake requires Visu's intervention. After helping Madhu's grandmother, he eventually tells her his father's wishes. Madhu and her family thus put on a double act, introducing Vaishnavi as her twin sister. What happens next forms the rest of the story...

The film opened to Indian audiences after several delays, on 24 April 1998 just after the Tamil New Year, and was the most expensive film to be made in India at the time.[2] Despite receiving mixed reviews on the actors' performances and the basic storyline, the film became a major hit at the South Indian box office. Owing to its success, it was later dubbed into the Hindi and Telugu language and released with the same name. The film was nominated by India as its entry for the Best Foreign Language Film for the Academy Awards in 1998
