Rahul Khanna and Anjali Sharma were best friends at college. Anjali realizes that she has fallen for Rahul but she's too late because Rahul has already fallen for Tina Malhotra. Heartbroken, Anjali leaves the city. Tina and Rahul get married and soon Tina becomes pregnant, giving birth to a daughter which they call Anjali. Due to complications during pregnancy, Tina passes away. Anjali is brought up by her father, and each year on her birthday he allows his daughter to read one of her mother's letters. Through these letters she learns that her mother (Tina) knew that another Anjali was in love with Rahul, and vows to bring them together again. Written by Soumitra

A film to remember!
6 January 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai is a very nice movie. Kajol and Rani Mukherjee are wonderful! Shah Rukh Khan was stunning. Newcomer Sana Saeed did very well.

It's all about Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan) and his daughter Anjali (Sana Saeed). Anjali's mother, Tina, (Rani Mukherjee) has died after giving birth to Anjali. Tina leaves her daughter eight letters and the eighth one is the most important. When she opens the letter on her eighth birthday there is a flashback to when Rahul, Tina and another Anjali (Kajol) were in college and it shows that Rahul had a best friend called Anjali and Tina was a new girl who had come along to the college and when Tina came in the picture for Rahul, Anjali realised that she loved him too. She didn't want to stand in the way of the two so left college. Tina is asking her daughter, Anjali, to get Anjali and Rahul together. But will she do it?

The one thing that I didn't like about the film is that Rani Mukherjee was wearing all these short skirts and belly tops. I don't know what has happened to Bollywood lately but it's being too westernised. It's not only with this film but with other ones aswell. The film deserves a 9.5 out of 10.
