Storyline

On a sight-seeing road trip of India, U.K. based Manav Mehta meets Mansi, the daughter of a singer, Tarababu. He is attracted to her, and makes his attraction known. She also is attracted to him eventually. Her dad approves of Manav, and both go to Bombay to meet his family. On their arrival itself, they are shunned and treated as second class citizens, and this lasts throughout the day, with the treatment getting worst at every point. Both decide to leave. Mansi decides to improve her career, leaving the past behind, and meets with Vikrant Kapoor, who helps her get started. Both see each other regularly, and soon decide to get married. In the meantime, Manav has not given up hope to marry Mansi, despite opposition from his and her families. Manav relentlessly purses his dream of marrying Mansi, even on the day of her marriage to Vikrant. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

the show must go on....
17 January 2014 | by (delhi,india) – See all my reviews

And the show goes on..... The maverick director in Subhash ghai proves again the title of showman given to him.. Be it his direction, performances, music, lyrical quality, costumes n visual appeal, the show, the exhibition of hues , the rainbow of bright colors keeps the screen filled up!!. As he was himself quoted as saying that he would had changed the movie title to something else , if it had not been for the stirring music n background score from the hidden treasures of the magician, the Mozart from Chennai.. He got worldwide recognition after "jai ho" but fair skinned guys did miss out on his gr8 compilation in dis flick!!!.. One can simply sit spellbound or groove to the times he composed for the movie, capturing the varied moments of the lead characters.. Only two directors, both show-mans of our industry, have succeeded in bringing out the beauty in ash, the other being sanjay Bhansali in hum dil DE chuke sanam.. I still Recollect how I sat speechless on looking at this demi goddess , sans any makeup in first half, so fresh, so charming, so very true, its really tough getting your eyes off her, I must say!!! Man, if first half belonged to the lady mentioned above n her simplistic, refreshing chemistry with dependable actor in akshaye sat against the majestic mountainous areas, then 2nd half was in Toto kidnapped by an actor who can portray any act in the book with so much ease n reality, an actor who is not less than any of the khans but for the perception of the masses!!!. One got to watch him assert his authority, rules, or jealousy on screen n not for morning he garnered so many awards for the act.. Ably supporter by not to be seen nowadays, akshaye.. He may not have the looks or the guilt but given his limited expertise levels, still gives a controlled performance.. Ably supporter by alok nath, the quintessential father to so many on screen daughters.. Visually appealing by good can.takes n splendid costumes n sets .. In all, for a visually n auditory enchanting experience n good acts by all the actors, plus a direction that keeps you entertained till just before the ending, its a winner.. Good effort sir, more expected from you, the lost sheen , in future...
