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

Sort of like a traditional Indian romance combined with"Bollywood/Hollywood", "While You Were Sleeping" and "Rambo"!
22 October 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Wow...I sure was shocked by the incredibly low score of 3.8 for this film! While the film is far from perfect, it IS still very good and well worth seeing and I cannot understand the hatred viewers have for this film.

"Dhaai Akshar Prem Ke" is a very unusual film. It's very much like taking a traditional Indian love story (complete with song and dance numbers) and combining it with "While You Were Sleeping" as well as "Rambo"--I kid you not! It begins with Karan (Abhishek Bachchan)on some sort of mission for the Indian army. His exploits in this opening scene would make John Wayne look like a sissy!! He is THAT macho as he kills dozens of AK-47-armed killers with just his semi-automatic pistols. Heck, he even catches the Indian flag in the process! He is, in many ways, like an Indian Rambo! He then is given leave from the military and this Captain heads back to a girl he loves. However, on the way he is pulled into the life of a damsel in distress (Aishwarya Rai--who later became Aishwarya Rai Bachchan when she married Abhishek in 2007). She witnessed a murder and is about to be killed to keep his secret, but super-macho Karan comes to the rescue. Now you'd THINK that that would be it, but soon Karan comes to her rescue again. It seems that Sahiba is depressed and doesn't care if she lives or dies. Why? Because her family has disowned her for refusing to marry the man they picked for her. So, being an all-around swell guy, Karan agrees to accompany her home and pretend to be her boyfriend. The problem is that the family assumes he is her new husband!! And, like in "While You Were Sleeping", the little lie steamrolls into a huge and occasionally funny predicament. So what's next? Well, much of it is very predictable and formulaic--you KNOW by the end of the film that Karan and Sahiba must fall in love. But, how they get there is kind of crazy--and once again, very Rambo-like!

So is this odd film worth seeing? Absolutely. While the story IS very predictable in some ways, it also kept me guessing and was quite enjoyable as well. Why the strong dislike for it? I don't really know. Perhaps these folks who scored it low are a lot more familiar with Indian films than me--I've only seen about a hundred, as the films are still not that readily available here in the States (but it IS getting easier each year). Regardless, I liked it.

By the way, if you do see this one, don't be surprised if in some of the song and dance numbers that the folks suddenly appear in other countries (such as Switzerland and Scotland). I've seen this several times before, such as in Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's "I Have Found It" and it's apparently not all that uncommon for Bollywood pictures. Weird, huh?!
