Rejecting the offer, he left his hotel job and went to Patel's (Shri Vallabh Vyas). Then Patel was beaten brutally by Ajay, and told Roop to never come to his hotel again. Roop needed to pay for his fathers operation, so at first he started singing on the street but no one paid him, then he went back to Reshma ... Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

20 November 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

I quite enjoyed Chaahat. It is obviously one of Mahesh Bhatt's worst commercial films, not because it is a very bad film but more because this director was responsible for some films which rank amongst the best of Hindi cinema and this one really pales in comparison, which is inevitable. Anyway, the film is pretty watchable, much more when one does not tend to take it too seriously. For the most part, the film flows very well and has its moments, but it gradually goes down as the writing gets more exaggerated. The film stars Shahrukh Khan as Roop, a guy who becomes the love interest of his cruel employer Ajay's young sister, named Reshma. She gets completely obsessed with him while he plans to marry Pooja, a simple nurse who looks after his ill father. The main problem is with Ajay, who warns Roop that he will go to any extents to make his sister happy. Yeh, quite a fairytale, but it's not that bad. Shahrukh Khan is brilliant as Roop as he was in most of his films of that time. Pooja Bhatt is charming and cute, Naseer is excellent as always in this ultra-negative role, and Ramya Krishna is absolutely beautiful and damn too hot to ignore. The music is nice and the title track "Chaahat Na Hoti" is very melodious. Chaahat must have had a wider message to it which for some reason I did not manage to understand (or maybe I just did not try to), but it was pretty engaging nonetheless. The last 15 minutes of the film with Khan going all mad and supernatural are ridiculous and plain embarrassing, but let it be, it is a nice Hindi entertainer and should provide a good time-pass for Shahrukh fans.
