Beautiful Henna Khan lives the life of a gypsy near the river, Jhelum, in Pakistan with her widowed dad, Khan Baba; three brothers, Ashraf, Razzak, and Zaman; and Razzak's wife, Najma. One day she comes across a male body that has been washed ashore. Khan Baba, Bibi Gul, and Henna take this male in, nurse him back to health, only to find out that he has lost his memory. The male in his sleep cries out the name of "Chand", and everyone starts calling him by that name. Soon he is well enough to walk around and starts working for Bibi and helping her make clay pots. Henna falls in love with him and would like to marry him, much to the chagrin of Daroga Shahbaaz Khan, who has already been married twice, but according to Shariat Law can marry twice more.

Mediocre movie
23 March 2006 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

Have just seen Henna and it does not date very well. The story has been better told before and since (Refugee; Veer Zaara; Earth) and Henna is clichéd and predictable. Zeba seems clumsy in the dance scenes although she has some charm - too bad the direction, acting and choreography is so poor. I usually like RK Films but Randhir Kapoor could not match his father's hand in direction (Prem Granth was a little better because of Madhuri's performance). And poor Ashwini Bhave had to wear those awful clothes in those earlier scenes. And Chintu in those white pants (Yes I know it was the fashion at the time but it made his butt look even bigger). The village scenes were quite pretty although marred by a hackneyed script My 5 out of 10 is a sympathy vote considering that it is 15 years old.
