Lives up to its hype..., 29 October 2000
Author: Kunal Mirchandani from Australia

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!
