I'm yours, baby! An outdated yet enjoyable dramedy with good performances.
Many people seem to dislike 'Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam', but according to me it was a very entertaining and watchable picture. The film deals with such themes as marriage, friendship, crisis, envy, ego and separation. I cannot say these issues were dealt with in a very realistic way, neither can I say the writing was at its best, but the film was generally well-made and the issues did provoke some thoughts in my mind despite the uneven execution.
This is the story of a newly married couple - Gopal and Radha. Radha is very close to Suraj, a childhood friend and a popular singer at present, and this is the film's main conflict. Gopal is increasingly more suspicious of his wife's continuing friendship with Suraj, whom she actually treats like a brother, but this leads to tensions and makes Gopal's life miserable. The story follows this conflict, Gopal's frustration, and looks at this triangle from many angles, letting the viewer have mixed feelings about the situation.
I liked the story and the concept was quite efficient. The dialogues ranged from poor to good to amazing, and the film, though fairly outdated, remains thoroughly enjoyable and engaging. Although towards the second half the proceedings become more intense, it for the most part works as a dramedy. The editing could have been better, but the music was excellent, especially the title song "Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam", which was a pleasure to the ears and which was well pictured on-screen. Another beautiful song is "Sab Kuchh Bhula Diya", sung by Sapna Awasthi and Sonu Nigam.
Where acting goes, the film is dominated by Shahrukh Khan who steals the show with his hilarious yet relatable character of a suspicious and principled husband. He is sincere, witty, sharp, uninhibited and impulsive here, and that's what makes his performance so entertaining and moving. Madhuri Dixit is as always very compelling and beautiful, while Salman Khan plays the golden-hearted pop star with restraint. Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam has many nice moments, and though it may not be an extraordinary film, it should definitely be a worthy watch for lovers of this genre and of Hindi films in general.
