An Exceptional movie
17 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is movie which had good comedy, romance and emotions. This is one of the best Hindi movies. The songs are superb. The story is entertaining & true to life. One can't take anything for granted. Live the moment you have to the fullest extent you never know what will happen next. True to the title song.

I wish Hemlata had gotten more opportunities to sing more songs. The title song is among the top 10 best ever romantic songs.

Though this is a 70's movies, it applies to current times too. It has a light beginning of college life, competition, fights, romance, and a great anti-climax.
