28 September 1999 | by (London, england) – See all my reviews

Chandni is a good film because it has drama and comedy. Sridevi puts her magic on screen again,as for Rishi Kapoor he plays the charming hero, Vinod Khanna doesn't play his role as a "Teenage Heart-throb" and not as a "Ladies Man" but just a guy who gets in love but his acting still has affect as he used to.

The film is about a girl and a boy meeting for the first time in their lives and it's love at first sight and those two want a happy life together but Rohit's parents hate Chandni and don't wish for her to be part of their family but Chandni's parents are happy for her later on they go on their honeymoon is Switzerland and so have the time of thier lives. they come back and Rohit has an helicopter accident after showing his love and soon goes home in a wheelchair and soon after he backs her off and chandni is heartbroken and then the Intermission proceeds.

The two become friends and explain to each other about the girls they love and don't know they have their sights on one girl. Lalit says to Chandni he loves her and he asks her to marry him but will she say yes? after that Rohit asks do they want to get back together again what does she say? will she go for her boss or Rohit? she's in love with two guys, what's a girl to do?
