Percocious Shalu has determined that she is in need of employment, and does get one with Khanna Industries, with a fair amount of false information. She meets with the owner's son, Dev Khanna, and thinks he is the driver, and treats him as such. Together they masquerade to help the poor farmers in the community, and both fall in love. An attempt is made to kill Dev by angry management employees, but Shalu's sister, Nimmi, rescues Dev, and is herself injured in the process. Dev looks after her, and Nimmi thinks he is in love with her, as she is with him. Nimmi tells her mom, Sarita, about Dev, and Nimmi goes to see Dev's dad and arrange their marriage, and it is then Sarita finds out that Shalu has been flirting with Dev. Shalu is told the truth about her birth, given an ultimatum by Sarita to stop flirting with Dev, to which Shalu agrees. The question is will Dev also fall in line, or will he marry Nimmi, as Shalu's birth is questionable. Written by rAjOo (

Preity Zinta's fabulous performance...
16 June 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

After having a successful turn with Kya Kehna, Kundan Shah and Preity Zinta reunite for another picture that revolves entirely around her. This is a film that has it all: comedy, drama, emotions, romance and values. It is portrayed quite well all through, but it certainly wouldn't have worked if not for Preity Zinta. Don't know what it is about her. Watching her on-screen is a refreshing, encouraging experience. Her bright smile, her laughs, her screams, her real-life happiness that appears so natural on-screen, all make you believe that life is beautiful. Even when she's sad and you see tears in her expressive eyes which naturally sadden you as well, you cannot but feel optimistic. She switches sorrow with happiness and vice versa quickly yet convincingly. This is not just the beautiful character she's got, it's Preity herself. Not once has she been called a bubbly and vivacious actress. Her ability to inject these positive qualities as well as her real optimism into even the saddest of characters is unique and commendable. This is the greatness of an actor. Not every actor can do it, but Preity can.

Preity plays Shalu, a girl who is a product of her father's extramarital affair, and who's been adapted by her father's wife (Rekha) after the latter's death. She is not aware of her identity and cannot understand why her mother does not show even remote affection for her while she clearly does so towards her sister Nimmi (Mahima). Yet, her love for her mother and her beloved sister is immense, and she is presented as a girl who is happy and full of life. She does not spend time crying for all ill fate, she fights for her happiness. Her character's love and ability to sacrifice her own happiness for her family could have made any other actress look cheap and pretentious, but Preity is compelling and moving.

Shalu is a very simple yet extremely memorable role. She is a big prankster, at times unkind, but that's what helps her forget her sorrow. Preity integrates her boyish charm into such instances. The scene when she misleads Arjun Rampal's character on his way to the company, the scenes when she mistreats him ("Hey Driver! Ksh! Ksh!"), the scene when she feeds her mother's political rivals with a peppered pastry (by the way, the instance when they have smoke coming out of their ears is annoying and unnecessary); all these are examples of her character's mini-negative shades, but also of her unconditional love for her mother.

Rekha is one of the greatest actresses, no doubt, and she is restrained and dignified here, but like the beautiful and talented Mahima Chaudhary, she suffers from an extremely underwritten role. Preity may not be as beautiful as they are, she is neither as dramatically accomplished as Rekha nor as attractive as Mahima, but it's her film all the way. She makes the best of her author-backed role, making Shalu authentic, charming and very easy to relate to by playing her with spontaneity, energy, depth and sincerity.

Dil Hai Tumhaara is not a great film but it is a heartwarming family drama which was made in the most traditional way. The last few scenes become increasingly and typically emotional, but they are moving enough and effectively bring to a positive ending. You just feel its profound, unrestrained Hindi film style all over, but it works. All the songs, without exception, are melodious and beautiful. Having said that, the main and only reason this film works consists of two words: Preity Zinta.
