Storyline

Priya is an actress whose life gets saved by the hero played by Akbar Khan while shooting. She then falls in love with him. however, this does not auger well with Priya's Didi (elder sister), who dislikes Akbar. But Priya is adamant in her love and attraction for Akbar, and the marriage takes place. The two live harmoniously for quite some time. Then tragically Akbar gets paralyzed after an accident. Watch whether Priya will live up to her love and the promises she made during the marriage ceremony, or if their love was just skin-deep - will she abandon him, and look for love elsewhere?.

Ahead of its times..
14 November 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The movie was, perhaps, ahead of its times.. the plot being rather novel.. the female leads very very gorgeous and the music track AWESOME. Akbar Khan, the lead actor, disappoints with his lack of acting talent and wooden dialog delivery.. but the movie impresses. The soundtrack (sorry to repeat)reflects the talent of Ajit Singh, a nightclub singer, music director (of very few films) and a true-blue Indian prince. The track (KABHI KABHI.. DIL YEH ROTA HAI) is stunning. We also have a rather philosophical number, courtesy, Bappi Lahiri, a prominent music director of yesteryear's. Watchable for its awesome sound track and gorgeous actresses, if nothing else..
