Storyline

The jobs of "Sholay" obsessed Deep and Rishi are on the line with their advertising firm if they do not come up with a one-liner for Mr. Roy's condoms. While Deep resides with his pregnant wife, Shanti, and a daughter, Muskaan; Rishi has separated from his wife, Nicki, and depends on Shanti for meals, apprehending a bitter divorce. When the time comes close to delivering her child, Shanti's mom moves in them temporarily, much to the chagrin of Deep. Shanti would like Nicki and Rishi to meet and patch-up their differences, however, Rishi knows that Nicki is having an affair with her attorney, and is not inclined in this direction. The main obsession for Deep and Rishi is Bollywood's music maestro, Rahul Dev Burman; and 'Jhankaar Beats' a contest they had competed to win in vain. With the deadline for Mr. Roy's one-liner closing in, Rishi gets an offer to work in America, jeopardizing any chance the group may have for competing in the upcoming 'Jhankaar Beats'.

One of the few polished Bollywood movies
6 July 2003 | by (Karachi, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

I really don't know how the reviewer can even turn good points into bad points. Dil Vil Pyar Vyar was no way near the intellect and light heartedness of this movie. It is one of the most entertaining films in years.

Its actually targeted to the youth so maybe the reviewer who might be a little aged might have not latched on to the idea.

This movie is so fresh with idea and the editing is so sharp that it should win a few accolades in the awards functions....

Bravo for the debut director for making a bollywood movie with enough energy to last its 142 minutes keeping the audience entertained!!
