Storyline

Running away from home can't keep a couple together. A signed paper can't keep a couple together. Love can. While for most Love Stories, marriage is the "goal", the fact remains that marriage is just the beginning. Saathiya continues on, from where most love stories end. From the infatuation stage "when a couple thinks they are in love" right through to "when a couple discovers the true meaning of love". Aditya (Vivek Oberoi) and Suhani (Rani Mukerji) met and fell in love. But when they eloped and set up home hoping that just Love will do the trick - well that's just the beginning of their story.

Wonderful depiction of life before and after marriage.
22 April 2008 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Shaad Ali's Saathiya is one of the best films of 2002. Everything about it -- from the story line, the cinematography, locations, emotions, performances to A.R. Rahman's beautiful soundtrack -- makes it a worthy film. The film marks the directorial debut of Shaad Ali, and it shows he has not gone far from his father (the great Muzaffar Ali) in terms of talent and imagination. He extracts good performances from his actors, he has a sense and understanding of emotion and clearly has a knack for capturing the complexity of marriage and relationships, which are infused with impressive lifelike sensibility in this film. Basically the story's success boils down to the fact that Ali portrays it with authenticity. This is a fantastic directorial debut (although he would ruin that image in his future projects BAB and JBJ). Rani Mukherjee is the main highlight of the show, the soul of the entire film. This is her career-best performance. She is simply flawless in every single scene - beautiful, vibrant, natural and convincing. Vivek Oberoi is a talented actor and acts very well, though he is not as good as his female costar. He does have to work on the more emotional expressions, but otherwise gives a complete performance. Gulzar and A.R. Rahman give life to the film with a superb list of songs, each of which is a gem. My favourite songs include "Saathiya", "Aye Udi Udi", "Chhalka Chhalka Re", "Chupke Se" and "O Humdum Soniyo Re". To sum it up, Saathiya is a very impressive, entertaining and realistic picture on relationships and marriage. I highly recommend you to see it.
