I guess it's every actress's dream to say the once worked with Govinda!
1 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

That's the only reason why I can rationalize why Aishwarya Rai would have chosen to star in this film. If she had done this earlier on in her acting career, it would have been understandable that she was trying to open doors for herself, but this film was in 2001! Come on Aishu! why? why? why? I have selected the "Non-spoiler" button so I will not say anymore. All I can do is warn you to see this film, only if you are a die-hard fan of Aishwarya or Govinda. A quick synopsis: Aishwarya plays a rich kid who goes on holiday somewhere in Asia or Europe(I can't remember where exactly), and Govinda plays a "happy go lucky" Albela(tour guide) she meets there.
