Storyline

Karan Khanna is an orphan and a captain in the Rajputana Armed Forces. He's madly in love with beautiful model Nisha, with whom he plans to tie the knot during his next leave. On the way to Nisha and their life together he bumps into Sahiba Grewal (Aishwarya Rai) who is an eye-witness to a murder and a girl on the run. Paranoid and panic-stricken, she finds an unexpected savior in Karan who rescues her from a group of criminals and stops her from taking her life. Slowly, Sahiba confides in Karan about her painful past and not-so-pretty future. Sahiba is the daughter of the stern and stony-faced patriach, industrialist Yagvendra Grewal who wants to see her settle down with the very suitable son of his friend, Rai Bahadur. Unwilling to get tied down too soon with a stranger, Sahiba lies to her family telling them she got married while studying in the city and is now terrified of returning to Palanpur without a husband. Karan chivalrously offers to make the trip home with her and tell ... Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Someone's loss is someone's gain
16 June 2004 | by (CA) – See all my reviews

As most Bollywood movies, the plot in this one is not complicated and quite predictable. Nice & shy guy met pretty girl who fell in love with him, but he loved the other girl back home; after the 'girl friend' in his heart got married, guy went back to seek the love he missed... The problem is that hero changed his heart for another girl too 'naturally' after his unspoken love failed. True, someone's loss is someone's gain. Yet what a condescending "gain" for the poor girl who didn't get his love in the first place.

Most of the dancing scenes are imaginary and quite senseless.

Aishwarya Rai was good at playing such poignant role for sure, but she needs more colorful characters to enrich her performance experience.
