Best Love story in troubled times ever
7 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

The main highlight of the movie was no doubt the sound of the movie, if you watch this movie in digital dolby, you wont find a better sounding Hindi movie ever.

The characters are very real, with the background of the sets very real, nothing filmy about it. The movie has a distinct aura, since the love story is running in background, with the viewer glued to unfolding mystery about the heroine(manisha koirala). She exude vulnerability, revengeful, and the docile of the commoner. She fits the role to the T. So can be said about shahrukh khan(best movie ever, after Kabhi Haa Kabhi naa). Shahrukh walks effortlessly through the role, being very real in the depiction. So are all other characters in the movie.

Choreography cannot be even better. All songs have certain magic, new, innovative, very impressive and music mind boggling.

Highly recommended by me, see and listen in digital dolby sound system, this is the best sounding movie ever.
