HDDCS must have come straight from Sanjay Leela Bhansali's heart. Each and every scene is well-executed. It's a little unrealistic to have the husband help find the wife's lover, but movies have that little license to stretch the truth and I suggest we just let loose once in a while. Aishwarya Rai has been presented more beautifully than she already is. It's so ironic that she was once written off as wooden because she truly shines in this film. Her emotional scenes are a delight to watch. Even when she's not speaking, she communicates with her eyes, which is lovely. Even Salman Khan acts FAIRLY well in here. You can't tell when he's crying or laughing, but every time he irritates you, just turn to Ash for solace. Ajay Devgan does what he's best at. The romantic, silent hero. Hey, he's good at it, so I have no complaints.
The sceneries are beautiful. There's not a song on the soundtrack which I don't like. Chand Chupa Badal and the title song are especially beautiful. The choreography is superb. The "Tadap Tadap" scene is perhaps one of the best I've ever come across. I confess. I actually cried during that song. :P The characters are so well-etched that you really don't know who to root for. You want Salman to get the girl, but you feel for Ajay, too.
Bhansali is an artistic genius. He has surpassed his previous film (Khamoshi) with this flick. Can't wait for his Devdas.
