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

Mohabbatein is set in the school of Gurukul, where Narayan Shankar runs his school through fear. He teaches his students how to become great and successful men, bringing discipline into their lives. Raj Aryan believes in freedom of expression through music, and love being more powerful than Narayan Shankar's rule through fear.
Through the lives of three young students, Raj Aryan tries to break Gurukul's traditions, and bring love back to life.
Maybe the story is unrealistic, maybe the songs are not as original as they could be, but Mohabbatein works. Everyone who loves this film loves it for different reasons, because each story appeals to different people. For me, I felt some of Raj Aryan's dialogue so moving that I've begun thinking about the love in my own life differently. For some people it was Amitabh Bachchan who stole the film, for others it was the love stories between the youngsters.
I'm fairly sure, if you have ever felt true love and true loss, you will love this movie. It is a simple movie, just like love should be.
