Storyline

Widowed Madan Chopra lives a very wealthy lifestyle with two daughters, Seema and Priya. His passion is car racing, and realizing that he is not young anymore, has his last race and wins - only to find out that another competitor, Vicky Malhotra, let him win. Madan befriends Vicky, introduces him to Priya and invites him to work for him in Bombay. Vicky and Priya are attracted to each other, much to Madan's delight and he announces their marriage. Before that could happen, Seema kills herself by throwing herself down from the roof of a multi-storied building. While Madan wants to close this case due to embarrassment, Seema meets with her college friend, Police Inspector Karan, and together they begin to unravel a plot that may well end Madan and the lives of others as well.

Quotes

Priya Chopra: [sees Ajay after having just learned the truth about him] What should I call you, huh? Vicky Malhotra, or Ajay Sharma? Perhaps while you used the deceit of a false name to play this con game you forgot that changing a name doesn't change a man's face and his crime! The heartless way in which you threw my sister down the roof...

SRK at his best
7 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am not a big fan of Mr Shahrukh Khan but i have to say this that this movie was one of his best performances to date, he is a good actor and i should like him but i don't please don't ask me why? i think he is okay but not all that, there are much better actors in the industry today, i have to say this though he is the popular one though.

Kajol played her role very well and she was very young in this film, she too is a great acress, i want to see in her more films in the future too, they made a very nice couple in the movie and the music was great in the film too, everyone should watch this movie once in their lifetime, it's a great movie and this made him into a really big star, i don't want to give too much away to spoil the movie but you guys should watch it.
