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

Goofs

The song 'Mera bil bhi kitna paagal hai' was shot after the whole shooting was over. Throughout the movie Aman Verma's hair is long and straight but in this song his hair is permed with golden tint. The cinematography of this song also looks fresh compared to the rest of the movie. See more »

Saajan is an evergreen classic romantic movie
26 March 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

If you want to see the best triangular love story of all time in Hindi cinema then please do watch Saajan.This is a must watch movie for every person who enjoys watching meaningful romantic movies .I have watched countless triangular love stories like Raj Kapoor's Sangam,Subhash Ghai's Taal,Ramgopal Varma's Rangeela,Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Hum Dil de chuke Sanam and so on but Saajan is easily the best among all these romantic films.Saajan is meaningful Bollywood romantic cinema at it's best.The songs are very melodious.The performances by Sanjay Dutt,Madhuri Dixit and Salman Khan are excellent.The story is hundred per cent original unlike other Bollywood movies of today.The background music of this movie is simply superb.Madhuri Dixit is looking stunning here.Saajan is a movie where you will fall in love with each of the characters played by Salman,Sanjay and Madhuri.You do not have to watch any other bollywood love story after you see Saajan.You are missing something as a movie fan if you have not seen Saajan from beginning till the very end scene.
