Storyline

Rahul (Shahrukh Khan) is a dancer and the director of a successful music and dance troupe. He believes that Nisha (Karisma Kapoor), one of his dancers, is his best friend; Nisha acts like his pal, but is secretly in love with him. Nisha injures her foot and Rahul needs a new dancer. He hires Pooja (Madhuri Dixit). She and Rahul are increasingly attracted to each other, but they act as if it were not happening. Pooja, unknown to Rahul, is already engaged to Ajay (Akshay Kumar), the son of family friends who raised her when her parents were killed. A romance with another man would be scandalous, and be a disappointment to her auntie and uncle, who want to see her marry their son. She tries to keep her distance from Rahul and Rahul, puzzled by her mixed signals, does not push matters. Nisha, however, her senses sharpened by jealousy, sees it all. Rather than try to stop the affair, however, she decides to leave India for a time and let matters take their course. She truly loves Rahul, ... Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Movie of movies
12 January 1999 | by (Lahore, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

It is one of the greatest movies I've ever seen. The acting of Sahrukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit and Karishma Kapoor is excellent. It has some excellent sequences and exquisite dance sequels. It's a very romantic and melodius movie. Karishma Kapoor is at her best in this movie. Every movie starring Khan is a hit but this one is the greatest hit ever made.
