Storyline

The story begins starts with the birth of a baby girl, Raja Nandini, in the world of feudal landlords - Zamindars - whose word is law for the villagers who work on their land. Nandini's three brothers throw a feast in honor of the girl child. The young son of the local singer (who had died) is brought in to sing for the event. The three brothers raise Nandini like their own child as their parents had died. At the age of 5, an astrologer predicts that Nandini will bring much happiness to the family, but her marriage will based on her choice and not the choice of her brothers. This angers the brothers and to prevent this from happening, she is raised within the confines of the house. She is home schooled and when she does go out, all the men are warned to hide from Nandini and that seeing Nandini will be met with dire consequences. Raja Nandini (Karisma Kapoor) reaches puberty. The few males allowed around her are the service staff and her bodyguards. Meanwhile, the boy who sang, Rama (...

Amazing movie
30 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not many non-Bollywood directors and actors make successful Bollywood movies. This one is just amazing. This movie takes you to a nice relaxing village atmosphere. Venkatesh's (Rama)acting is super. Karishma is at her usual best. Johnny lever and Lakshmikant Berde add a nice touch of comedy to this story. Each of their comic scene is a treat to watch. I just keep listening to the songs sung by Great Udit Narayan again and again. Anand Milind have given the perfect music for the songs.

Definitely a great movie for those who love village atmosphere, honest acting, comedy, and songs (+ music).
