Not that bad and not that good
14 May 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Chahat is a movie about an obsessed rich woman who wants to make Roop (Shah Rukh Khan) her own, but he loves someone else. The rich girl's brother will do anything for her and tries to secure her happiness with criminal methods. The idea is not too bad. SRK is not the actor he is now, but his performance is still worth seeing(especially for fans). Although the theme is good and the plot too, the movie is not able to catch the viewer. I think this is because of the Dialogues and settings.

I would probably describe it as a typical 80ies Movie. Due to design, story and acting.

If you are a fan of Sharukh, it's not a mistake to watch it. I would not buy it though.
