Khosla's Romantic Adventurous Flick
23 December 2007 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

Raj Khosla's romantic 'adventurous' thriller 'Solva Saal' is an entertaining 'masala' flick starring the hit duo: Dev Anand and Waheeda Rehman. It's got pretty much all the ingredients that make a Hindi film entertaining except that there are some moments that derail from the main plot. Most of the film takes place in one night. I don't see what relevance the title has to the film. Dev and Waheeda's strong chemistry stands out and both act very well. Waheeda is stubborn and lovely while Dev is cool, sophisticated and charming. Their scenes together make the movie worth the while. The songs are beautiful. In spite of its flaws, Khosla does a decent job and keeps the film moving. Perhaps some editing would have helped mend the uneven pace.''Solva Saal' is a fun watch.
