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, ...

OK - this film is worth seeing because indeed, the poetry and music is superb. But puhleez! the acting is below par or perhaps it's due to the weak script. The story has potential, but its execution is lacking.
I did appreciate, and still do, a good love story, and this it has, but it's an immature story never properly realised on the screen; perhaps the re-make will finally fulfull this potential.
I know a number of Indians that adore this film - perhaps, my not liking it is my exposure to other foreign films and India's limitations on imported cinema in that time period and thus, their exposure to 'higher-quality' cinema. I do know that even a lot of the sappy love stories done now in Bollywood I really like... but this... sorry!
The individual song, "Kabhi Kabhie" is wonderful esp. the remix done by Bally Sagoo - search the net for it - his mix is excellent.
