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)

Good for apparent reasons
10 August 2004 | by (Pennsylvania, USA) – See all my reviews

The plot of this film is the usual bollywood fare, poor girl, rich boy, disapproving family. The acting and the script are the usual yada yada. So what makes this movie incredible? It is A MIND BLOWING AUDIO/VISUAL TREAT! At the end of the movie, I was frozen! I could only exhale a modest "WOW". Someone pulled out all the stops for choreography, costuming, scene dressing and location! Your eyes and ears will thank you! The overwhelming beauty of this film together with the fantastic rendering of songs makes you want to get up and dance. Scene after scene make you want to gasp. I highly recommend it. Only Aishwarya Rai could have done this, her eternal beauty with the backdrop of India are the show stoppers. Must see!
