Storyline

Ranjha and Heer fall in love with each other, but fate has something else in store for them. All the songs are memorable, especially "Milo na tum to, hum gabraye, milo to ankh churaye, humhe kya ho gaya..."; "Meri..duniya.. mein tum aaye, kya kya apne saath liye, tan ki chandi, manh ka sona, sapnon wali raat liye..."; "Do dil toote, do dil harhey, duniya walhon sadhke tumhare..."; "Yeh duniya, yeh mehfil, mere kaam ki nahin...". And to top this all the dialogues rhyme too! Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

astonishing movie
15 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

this has to be one of the most unusual Hindi films ever mainly because the whole movie was in verse. this movie was based on the legendary story written by waris shah, the punjabi version of romeo and juliet. raj kumar was campy but awesome,, he was made to play ranjha. his dialog delivery and andaz-e bayan is unique and fits this genre of movies to a T. the music was extra-ordinary., the dialogs and lyrics written by kaifi azmi nothing short of spectacular.the lead actress was the only weak link,a log of wood may have done better!! nonetheless, this movie is an achievement in the world of desi cinema and needs to be seen by movie aficionados everywhere
