Radha and Suraj have been friends since childhood. Gopal has been in love with Radha ever since they spent a few years together as kids. Years later, Gopal's guardian proposes to Radha a marriage with Gopal, and she accepts. She finds a loving husband in Gopal, and when Gopal asks who she loves the most, first she lists her mother, then her brother, and in a voice-over she says that she loves Gopal the most. But Gopal thinks that Radha is spending too much time with Suraj, and starts to suspect them, so much so that he asks Radha to leave the house. After Radha leaves the house, she receives a divorce notice from Gopal, which tears her heart apart. When Suraj and her brother, Prashant, find out about the divorce notice, they offer to go and talk to Gopal, but Radha does not permit this. Suraj then telephones Gopal and asks to meet him alone, Gopal agrees to meet him, and carries a loaded gun to this meeting.... Written by
Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam is a total misfit in the age of Lagaan and Dil Chahta Hai or even Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai. Gopal (Shahrukh Khan) gets married to Radha (Madhuri Dixit) whose childhood friend is Suraj (Salman Khan). Gopal is suspicious of Radha's continuing friendship with Suraj which leads to tensions between the married couple. That's about it! Other than that, the movie consists of long, boring and regressive monologues from Gopal on his ideas of an ideal wife and marriage. And how poor Radha suffers as a result of her husband's archaic beliefs. Paradoxically, the saving grace is Shahrukh Khan himself who incredibly manages to pull off each scene quite convincingly. However the movie is interspersed with light moments which provide relief from the hi-pitched drama. Madhuri expectedly looks quite old in some scenes (the movie took 8 years to complete) but delivers a reasonably good performance. Salman Khan, as always appears comfortable with his happy-go-lucky role. Aishwarya Rai in a guest appearance is completely wasted. The songs have the feel of the eighties (sample the 'khatiya' song making a comeback!), except for the hummable title song. On the whole the movie is just about watchable. But, if you have something else to do, give it a pass.
