In India, open romance is forbidden, as is showing affection in public. A college principal named Narayan is a strong believer in this, aware that a male student named Vicky is in love with Ishika; while another male student is hopelessly in love with Sanjana; and a third man named Karan is in love with a married woman named Kiran. No amount of persuasion can get Narayan to change his mind. Then the college recruits a music teacher named Raj, who eventually starts fanning the flames of love among the students, much to Narayan's chagrin, anger, and displeasure. Things get worse when Narayan finds out that Raj was the very man who fell in love with his daughter who eventually committed suicide when he didn't grant them permission to get married. Will the six young people be also heartbroken by Narayan, and if so, who will be the first to kill himself or herself? Written by

Originally, before the release of the film, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was meant to be a guest appearance. However, after the film released, the fact she was in the film became so popular that the filmmakers decided to make her a regular character. See more »

Probably the one serious complaint against Mohabbatein is that the movie just goes on and on and on and on... lasting for more than 3-and-a-half hours! (not that its completely a bad thing..) in fact, most of the movie is actually quite enjoyable. what really makes the movie kinda drag is the tacky ending, in which narayan shankar (an excellent amitabh bachchan) gives this exceptionally long lecture about him losing to love. aside from that, everything else in the movie is of supreme chopra quality! all six newcomers (though jugal hansraj isnt technically a newcomer) have managed to give decent performances, and have stood their ground in front of amitabh and shah rukh.
the movie is reminiscent of several other blockbusters of the past, such as dilwale dulhaniya le jayenge (also directed by aditya chopra), kuch kuch hota hai, and dil to pagal hai.. in fact, mohabbatein steals many of the elements of these previous classics! yet, the audience comes out of the theater feeling full and satisfied. though not as emotionally gut-wrenching as DDLJ, mohabbatein is still a gem of a movie..
P.S. if you still don't know about the famed special appearance of this mega-actress, then i suggest you not try to find out yourself.. trust me, it's intended to be a surprise!
