Wow!
31 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is the first mainstream Bollywood film I've ever seen and I loved it! And I don't even like musicals! The part that got to me was the romance. I've always been a dreamer and I'm a sucker for the stuff in this film.

I also liked much of the dancing. It was more modern and Western than I expected. I'm anything but a dance connoisseur, but I preferred the stuff in this film to Alvin Ailey by a longshot. I'm looking forward to watching more Bollywood films now, though the selection of them with English subtitles is less than I would like.
