Storyline

Aman (Sanjay Dutt) is a poor, handicapped orphan who is befriended by wealthy Akash Verma (Salman Khan) during his childhood. Akash's parents adopt him and give him their family name, and Akash and Aman grow up as brothers. While Akash is a womanizer, Aman takes to writing poems under the pen name Sagar. The poems get published, and Aman becomes very popular. One of his fans is a young woman by the name of Pooja Saxena (Madhuri Dixit), who corresponds with Sagar. Akash meets Pooja and falls head over heels in love with her. When Aman comes to know this, he asks Akash to pose as Sagar, which he does, and Pooja and Akash fall in love with each other. A heartbroken Aman looks on, as he knows that although women may like his poetry, they will never come out openly and love him when they see his handicap. At the end, Akash discovers that Aman is actually Sagar and loves Pooja, so he decides to sacrifice his love for Aman. Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Awesome treat
30 June 2012 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Saajan is a great film with love, sacrifice, friendship, tragedy and above all a fine musical score

The film is all about Sanjay Dutt who loves Madhuri but hides it because he is handicapped

The film has several good scenes like Sanjay Dutt's outburst at the church The film has a fine climax and a nice ending

Sanjay Dutt impresses his role as a lame and lonely orphan Salman Khan is good in a supporting role Madhuri Dixit impressed in a stunning role and amazing dance techniques Kader Khan repeats his comedy-dialogue delivery
