Storyline

Viren, on a visit to India, falls in love with Pallavi, who happens to be older than he is. Her age doesn't bother him but as Dai Maa points out, its unusal in India for the woman to be older than the man. During a property dispute and a court case, Paalavi's father suddenly dies of a heart-attack. She is shattered. He goes to comfort her but finds out she was never in love with him, but with a pilot, Vinod. They get married and Viren leaves for London. A year later, Vinod and Pallavi die in an accident. She leaves behind a daughter, Pooja. She grows up to look like a replica of her beautiful mother. When Viren visits India, he gets a shock when he sees her the first time. Pooja slowly reveals that she is in love with Viren, but Viren still loves Pallavi, the memories of Pallavi never leave him. The film is about unrequited love, living life with a passion, friendship and more. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

This film, released on the same day as Phool Aur Kaante (1991), was expected to break records. Unfortunately, the relationship between Prem and Pallavi/Pooja was considered incestuous by purists and the moralists, and it was completely rejected by the Indian audience. Its failure demoralized Yash Chopra and to this day he laments its rejection by the Indian audience. However, it was not a total loss; it became one of the biggest hits ever in the Indian overseas market. See more »

Beautiful love story from Yash Chopra

The Chopras yet again proves why they make such wonderful movies.This movie is absolutely wonderful.It has comedy,drama,romance and deep emotions etc.This has been shoot in Rajasthan in the first half.Visuals in Rajasthan are dazzling.Second half is shoot in London.Visuals were simply stunning.Camera work is first rate.Costumes are beautiful

Yash gets full marks for giving us amazing performances.Sridevi,is no doubt the scene stealer,she has given a very balanced performance.She had a wonderful role.She also looked stunning .Anil Kapoor has given a very moving performance.Yester year Waheeda Rehman is great.Anupham is OK.Deepak is good.Dipy Sagoo is good.Story well pretty weird at times is a westernized story.Almost your typical formula.Dialogs are excellent and so is the direction.

Songs are great especially the parody.Songs are pictured beautifully.My favorite visuals were in Kabhi Maan Kahoon and Yaad Nahin Bhool Gaya and Moorni Baaga Maa and Megha(with great lyrics,a graceful Sridevi and Latas melodious voice)and Hari Harans magical voice in te title song and a graceful Sridevi in Mohe Cheed

Despite that,the movie is good and a must see
