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)

Musical treat

One of the better films i have seen.And definitely one of the better by Subaash Ghai.Though having seen Saudagar and Pardes surely Ghai has a lot of better efforts .Truly not as good as Pardes.Story is same old and the screenplay is utterly predictable.Story is just the typical old triangle boy meets girl falls in love and sons dump of girl falls in love with another guy and guy 1 returns.Climax brings every thing.The movie is not that excellent but still a well made movie

This movie is enjoyable mainly because of the songs.Songs are excellent.The best songs are Kahin Aag Laage and Ramta Jogi.And the performances are excellent.Aishwarya shines in the role of Mansi and is so easy on the eyes in the emotional and dramatic scenes unlike ones like Sushmitha.Who also happens to be a fine actress.Her dancing is amazing.Akshaye was also good.Though this is the only performance that i liked of his.Anil Kapoor superbly stands out and gives a knock out performance.Overall a simple and yet a very entertaining film
