Shah Rukh's one of the best films.
19 May 2009 | by (Chicago, United States of America) – See all my reviews

The film is about a rich girl's (who's the sister of a big don) obsession with a poor boy (Shah Rukh). Unfortunately, this poor boy loves an ordinary girl so much that he defies every move of the rich girl and her brother that would bring this poor boy closer to the rich girl.

Shah Rukh has acted one of his best performances in this film. It's really surprising that the film wasn't a commercial success as it had basically every element that is required for pure entertainment. This film was definitely better than some of the other hopeless Bollywood films.

Overall, I would recommend everyone (especially Shah Rukh's fans) to watch this film if you haven't. The songs of the film are pretty decent too.
