One-line Reviews (14)

The flow of the movie is great & engaging.

First-half of the film is very entertaining.

The movie's prime flaw is the slow pace which might test the patience of a lot of young viewers.

Unlike Rajshree's "Hum Aapke Hai Kaun", the film is slow and the songs and music are comparatively weak.

Though this movie has an old fashioned narration, repetitive camera movements, and evident studio backgrounds, altogether it wonderfully delivers a triangular chemistry between three environments; the girl, the boy and the audience.

Beautiful (if a bit slow) movie .

Aloknath does cliché in a role of Girl's father, Shahid kapoor looks fat and Shahrukhed, Amrita rao is another disaster in addition to ugly looking sets, bad costumes, hackneyed storyline, monstrous stepmother, trying-hard-to-act actors, cacophonous background music, cheap soundtracks.

Boring .

Shahid and Amrita are just insipid and boring.

Amrita looks simply stunning and should be taken seriously as a future major star.

Save yourself the pain and give this pointless movie a miss

Barjatya has done his homework well and has depicted a very realistic story into a well-made highly entertaining movie.

All in all, I definitely recommend this film, its romantic, looks stunning and has a dramatic climax (I won't go into details, just in case you haven't seen it.

That factor took my notice and when the occasion came I decided to give this boring Indian saga a go, just to see what is on the cards.
