Kusum Rai lives a wealthy lifestyle in scenic Kashmir with her widowed dad, Basant. Her dad had helped his friend's widow, her son, Sushil Verma, and daughter, Munni, overcome many financial challenges, and had also paid for his medical education so that he can grow up to not only support his family, but also marry Kusum. Kusum and Sushil do get married and re-locate back to Sushil's house which is attached to Malhotra Hospital where he works. Shortly thereafter disagreements begin when Kusum is not allowed to have her way, and also when she feels that Sushil is not being attentive towards her. Things escalate to such an extent that Kusum returns to live with her dad. Several months later, she is informed that Sushil is seriously ill, she returns - only to find that Sushil is in love with a nurse named Karuna. Watch what an angered Kusum does to keep Sushil all to himself. Written by rAjOo (

Those must have been different times
28 August 2007 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Well one gets kinda easy on the rating , for the sheer respect of the movies times...lack of technology and respect for the crew and cast.

The music is mind blowing, my favorite being the title track -- dil apna aur preet parai, the more popular and rememberable being -- ajeeb dastaan hai yeh.

ALL in all ...a lazy Sunday afternoon...preceded by a great lunch...can make the ideal setting for this movie.

Also get your parents to sit in with u, in case u r clueless about the songs i mentioned...and you will get into the groove! Goodnight, and good luck!
