The film was supposed to open with Amit standing under a tree and watching Pooja get married. Traditionally in a Hindi "shaadi" (wedding) ceremony, there were to be seven "pheras" (circuits) around the altar; therefore there would be seven different love scenes between Amit and Pooja intercut with each phera.

"Kabhi Kabhie Mere Dil Mein" who can forget that song by the late Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar. I first saw this movie in the mid 1970's when it was first released. The cinemas were totally packed - "House Full." The songs were already famous before the release of the movie.

"Kabhi Kabhie," directed by Yash Chopra, stars Amitabh Bachchan, Rakhee Gulzar, Shashi Kapoor, Waheeda Rehman, Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Parikshit Sahni, Simi Garewall and Nasreen. Ifteqar and Deven Varma make a special appearance.
This movie is "poetry in motion" totally and that is not to mention the acting, the story, cinema photography and lastly the songs. This is a typical Yashraj film where the scenery is concerned - mountains and snow.
Conclusion: This is a worthwhile to watch whenever you have the chance for "Love Is Life."
