Deja vu?
23 January 2006 | by (Pennsylvania, USA) – See all my reviews

Isn't this the exact same movie as "Sapnay"? Made in the same year, same cast, character names and identical plot - one language and version for Tamil, the other for the rest of the country? Correct me if I'm wrong, but "Strawberry Ankhen" is in both films. I've seen this film, not Sapnay, and my vote mostly represents how much I love to watch Prabhu Deva dance. He doesn't have as many "electric" dances as he has in other films, most notably "Pehli Nazar ka Pehla Pyar: Love at first sight". The DVD version also does not have subtitles, which makes the other film attractive, I can follow in the spots I got lost in. It's a cute twist on "Cyrano de Bergerac".
