Storyline

Born in Jaunpur, Uttar Pradesh, Ram Saran Pandey, relocates to Bombay, Maharashtra, to improve his lifestyle, leaving behind his mom and dad, Sudama, with a promise to call them to Bombay when he is well settled. Ram gets employed as a garage mechanic, and this is where he meets with a customer named Kamya Lal, a Journalist, who is impressed by his honesty. She decides to write a number of articles on him, making him immensely popular. She allows him to visit her at all times in her palatial bungalow, giving Ram the impression that she is attracted to him. Then one night, a drunken Ram decides to ask Kamya for her hand in marriage - and this is the night that Ram will be thrust into a world that he has never known before - changing, if not risking his life, forever.

Don't take this movie too seriously, for heaven's sake...
4 January 2006 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Like all Bollywood movies, this movie requires a little bit of suspension of disbelief.

"Dil Pe Mat Le, Yaar!" means "Don't Take It To Heart, For Heaven's Sake". "Yaar" is an exclamation used in Hindi similar to our "eh" or our saying "Geez" or worse.

The main characters' acting is superb, but the fact that this movie is still a musical and was produced in traditional formulaic Bollywood style is what hurts it.

The fact that people break out in song and that the premise of the movie is so banal ruin an otherwise excellent production.

Yes, some of the supporting cast is not up to the caliber of the main actors. Yes, it's a jumble of genres - musical, black comedy and dramatic tear jerker, but to have a project sold in Bollywood, one must follow certain formulae to please the masses.

The message of the movie is good, if rather inconsequential, but it's not a travesty or waste of money.

Take a look at the movie, and you'll be able to pick out the good from the bad. And for heaven's sake, don't take it too seriously.
