12 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to say this is one of the finest stories in India cinema. The acting is stellar. Kajol is fantastic, and i enjoy her more playing roles that are out of her norm. The one thing i have to say about this movie is that the music is fantastic. The other thing, its a very colorful and hilarious movie and a bit of a tear jerker towards the end. Although one many not recognize the other lead actors, although they are quite famous in the south. I think the ambiguity that these actors bring works in the movies favor. The musical numbers are very well directed, and they transport you into another world. Especially the song "chanda re" it is beautifully choreographed. You will definitely be humming to the movies tune long after you have watched it.
