Storyline

Sapna, the daughter of the Saigal family's driver is a simple fun-loving girl, but her dreams are not as simple. She dreams about riches and day-dreams about her dream man. Vijay Saigal and Vicky Saigal, both heirs to Saigal Industries have almost all the qualities of a dream man. Almost. Because "All work and no play" makes Vijay a dull boy and "All play and no work" makes Vicky and outrageous flirt, as he does not believe in the affairs of the hearts, but only in affairs. But then even Sapna is not made of the stuff, dream girls are made of. Not until she becomes a successful model and transforms into a beautiful girl. That's when she become Vicky's dream girl. But Sapna's success hasn't changed her status. She is still the driver's daughter and Mrs. Shanti Devi may overlook her son's affairs with rich girls but not with a driver's daughter. Big brother Vijay takes upon himself to iron out the differences, but himself gets smothered by Sapna's live-wire charm and subsequently her ... Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

One of my favourite Yash Raj films
12 August 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

I don't know what I particularly like about the films produced by Yash Raj. It may be the uninhibited romance, the great music, the talented actors, the fine stories, the simplicity or the larger-than-life depictions. Yeh Dillagi has all of it. It's not a very original film, not a fantastically made one, but very memorable thanks to its own style, its music and its main star cast. The story of two brothers falling for the same girl without being aware of each other's feelings is extremely typical, but here, it's more than just about that. It's a very fresh story filled with a lot of energy and many exciting, funny and memorable moments. The music of the film is outstanding, and maybe the main reason the film is somehow remembered today. All the songs, without exception, are great. "Lagi Lagi", "Hothon Pe Bas", "Dekho Zara Dekho Barsaat" are my favourite. The comedy was nice, the romance was charming. The only thing I didn't like, however funny it may sound, was that all the girls Saif was trying to woo, were not good-looking, while the makers pathetically pretended they were. Anyway, it's not that important. I liked the script, I liked the direction. I liked the way the relationship of two brothers was portrayed, and I appreciated the writers for not going to the extent of creating an unnecessary rivalry between the two.

Akshay Kumar and Kajol form a fantastic pair and look very good together. Akshay is one of my favourite actors, and he is very impressive in a role that is very different from what people thought he best suited when he entered films (action). I don't know why Yash Raj never made any other films with him after this successful performance. He is restrained, good-looking, charismatic, and during the song "Dekho Zara" I noticed how superb he is as a dancer - all the qualities required for this kind of films. Kajol is fantastic and extremely charming as Sapna. She is appealing, natural and convincing throughout the film, and it is her character which carries the narrative forward. I think she never looked as hot and attractive as she looked in this film. Her attitude, charisma and spunky personality can make anyone fall for her, so no surprises that she is the centre of attention here. Saif Ali Khan is good, but not as good as his costars. His character is very difficult to like in the beginning, and his comic sense did not work as it usually does today. Anyway, Yeh Dillagi is very memorable for me, and maybe it's got to do more with the fact that I've liked it since childhood, so I tend to overlook its flaws. I find it as good as several other Yash Raj flicks of that time, although it is not as great as, say, DDLJ, in terms of film-making or story.
