Arun Mathur and his college sweetheart, Lily Fernandes, even though of different faiths, Hindu & Catholic respectively, are thrilled when their parents agree to the marriage. Ruby Fernandes welcomes Arun and encourages him to call her "mommy", while Arun's dad is already making preparations for the marriage. Then the doctor announces that Lily has blood cancer and may not have very long to live. She and her mom not only suppress this news from Arun, but also cancel the engagement ceremony. Arun's dad is shocked when Ruby informs him, and he and the doctor discuss various ways of getting her treated. One of them is to let a doctor from abroad examine Lilly. But will this doctor be able to reach Lily in time? and will Arun ever come to know of Lily's illness? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

one of my favorites!
25 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this movie is one of those few Indian movies that portrays realistic picture rather than the typical ideal picture. I likes this movie because the characters in this movie seem real, they can be anyone you go to college with or see on the street. Another thing was the main conflict that the characters face, it is portrayed without too much drama and in a way that tugs your heart, you'll laugh and you'll cry, it's a tear jerker! it will make you appreciate the presence of the one you love in your life. the songs are amazing. especially like the one with kabir's and rahim's dohe (one of those few INTELLIGENT songs u'll ever hear)
