A must-see movie for Madhuri Dixit's fans!!
2 July 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A marriage alliance is formed between Madhu (Madhuri Dixit) and Raja (Sanjay Kapoor) in their childhood by their elder siblings Rana Mahendra Pratap Garhwal (Mukesh Khanna) and Brijnath (Paresh Rawal. However, due to a terrible fire that destroys Brijnath's estate and status, the alliance is broken, and Madhu and Raja are separated. The same day, Brijnath meets with an unfortunate accident which leaves him crippled, and dependent on his younger brother, Raja. Raja willingly sacrifices his childhood and education in order to take care of his elder brother. Several years after, Madhu and Raja meet, and fall in love. The two lovers receive Brijnath's blessings, but not Rana Pratap's. Rana Pratap wants his sister to marry a rich and wealthy man called Abishek, and is furious at his sister's decision to marry Raja instead. He and his younger brother devise a devious plan in order to get their sister married to Abishek. What will happen? Will Madhu marry Abishek or Raja? Will Brijnath unite the two lovers? Watch 'Raja' to find out. Raja is an excellently made movie with lots of colours and with six beautiful, picturesque songs by Nadeem-Shravan. Raja is a must-see movie for all Madhuri Dixit's fans.
