Not a great film, but a funny and feel-good family entertainer
I quite enjoyed watching Mahesh Bhatt's Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke, a film that does not take itself too seriously and which can surely provide a decent watch for the entire family. Mahesh Bhatt made some amazing dramatic and intense films in the 1980s, and this film is totally different in its approach. Unlike many Hindi films made at that time, this one is very simple, light and entertaining. It occasionally reminded me of those memorable Mukherjee comedies like Khubsoorat and Chupke Chupke, though I wouldn't say it is as great as these films. The film stars Aamir Khan as a young businessman who now has to look after his late sister's three mischievous kids, and Juhi Chawla, a Tamil runaway girl who is brought home by the kids and gets later hired by him as their governess. Together they form a nice romantic couple (as they always do). The film is fast-paced and is aided by wonderful songs composed by Nadeem-Shravan which contribute to its effervescent style and light mood. Khan is restrained and effective as Rahul, while Chawla is excellent, vivacious and funny in an all-out comic role with her endearingly chirpy attitude and effortless Tamil line delivery. The kids also do a fine job. Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke is not a film for everyone but mostly for those who like light-hearted and musically abundant Hindi masala flicks. In that genre, it was very successful.
