Trivia

The concept came to Yash Chopra while he was reading a poem by his longtime friend (and also the film's lyricist) Sahir Ludhianvi. Initially, the story just centered on Amit, Pooja, Vijay and Anjali, but Pamela Chopra read an article in a magazine about a woman meeting her adopted child. Yash Chopra thought it good enough to make it a sub-plot in the film. See more »

Quotes

Amitabh Malhotra: [singing] Sometimes the thought crosses my mind / That you were made for me. / Before this you lived among the stars / You were called to earth for me. / Sometimes the thought crosses my mind / That your body, your eyes are in trust for me. / The dense shade of your hair is for me alone, / These lips, these arms are in my trust. / Sometimes the thought crosses my mind / As if wedding music plays on the road. / It is our wedding night and I'm lifting your veil... / You're melting in my arms, ...

Kabhi Kabhie is truly a remarkable piece of cinema
15 January 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Kabhi Kabhie is what I'd like to call a complete movie- it has all the fine elements. Good story, great dialogues, great direction- and great acting. Amitabh Bachan, Raakhee, Shashi and Rishi Kapoor, Waheeda Rehman and Neetu Singh gave a convincing and touching performance.

I enjoyed Mukesh's songs. The poetry was simply breathtaking! The scene between Amitabh and Raakhee meeting 20 years later was very touching. It was a very beautiful love story, woven through several generations, and it felt as though it was a journey through several emotions and moments of recollection, remorse, repentance, etc. There was an atmosphere of unspoken love and care in the story. Many untold things took physical shape and meaning only in the hearts of the audience. It was great! All-in-all a 9/10 movie!
