My first Hindi movie
2 March 2005 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

The main thing why the movie is so special for me is because this was the first Hindi movie I had ever seen. At that time I was about seven years old. I fell in love with this movie. Still today, after fourteen years, I love this movie. It is a comparatively unknown movie. The movie is a love story.

Arun is a final year student in the college. Shalni, a class fellow falls in love with him. She is a good poet. She sends her poetry to college magazine and Arun incidentally reads it. Her poetic name is Seema. Arun has a great respect for Seema because he has sung Seema's poem in the college annual function and becomes popular. He and Shalni has a bad relationship in college and he does not know that Shalni loves him. After his completion of masters, he wants to find a job as he has no one in the world and he was studying on scholarship. In this period of crises, Shalni plans with her friend that why not she should help him build his career as a singer. But she does not want herself to be known to Arun as his career maker. She writes songs in magazines and collects funds for Arun's shows. Basically all the money is her. And then Arun becomes a star. What happens next I think should be known by watching the movie.

Music, acting and direction are great. Don't miss this one. Beware it is a little bit sad. But it is a complete story.
