Storyline

Wealthy Rajiv Sinha and middle-classed Amar Saxena are two childhood friends, with similar likes, and tastes. Their similar habits lead them to being in love with the same woman - Seema, who loves Amar, and is willing to marry him no matter what. Rajiv attempts to offer money to Sapna's guardian so that he can marry her, in vain though. When Rajiv attempts to convince Amar that Sapna is being brought up by a prostitute by the name of Ratnabai, Amar is adamant, and marries Sapna, and takes her home to his brother and his family, where they are not welcomed, and asked to leave. Rajiv and Amar stop seeing each other, and regard each other as bitter enemies. Amar and Seema manage to exist, with Amar going on to become a successful prosecution attorney. Then they get the news that Rajiv has been charged with killing a young woman named Neelam Mehta. Amar is delighted for he will be given a chance to teach Rajiv a lesson, and possibly sentence him to death. During the trial, Rajiv's only ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Everything Old is New Again
23 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When this was released, it was already dated, with scenes that had been shot 8 years earlier. However, for viewers now, we are watching old films anyway. Consider (as many reviewers have said, that it would have been a hit if released earlier. What does it matter now that it was released in 2000 instead of 1993 or 4?

A stronger story than I expected. If the IMDb synopsis of Indecent Proposal is correct, this is much more than a remake of that movie, because the moral twist of an Indian version pervades the film in ways that make it far more interesting. And for folks who can't believe that a woman like the heroine could fall for a dumpy looking Rishi Kapoor, I submit that women do not always go for money or good looks. From time to time we are attracted by character and personality in ways that neither money nor hot looks can conquer.

Worth looking at.
