Widowed Colonel Khurana, a resident of India, goes to London, accumulates enough wealth, returns to India, opens a private Sanatorium for the insane, and hires his daughter, Tanvi, as one of the psychiatrists'. His second-in-charge is Dr. Sunil. Tanvi looks after patient #36, a woman by the name of Shobhna Mathur, quite lovingly, almost like the mother she never had. Then Shobhna gets well, is discharged and unable to recollect Tanvi's loving care. This does hurt Tanvi, so she decides never to get close to any patient, especially the new patient #36, Anand J. Sharma, who has been admitted by a Court Order. Circumstances do make Tanvi and Anand get close, so close that they fall in love with each other. But her disciplinarian father has chosen a suitor named Karan, and is not willing to take the risk of Tanvi marrying a mental patient, especially one like Anand, who has been arrested and charged with killing his fiancée, Maya.

Plot Outline: Anand (Salman) is admitted to an asylum where Dr. Tanvi (Kareena), her father (Om Puri) & Dr. Sunil (Jackie Shroff) are psychiatrists. Tanvi learns of Anand's tragic past of his lover Maya's (Rimi Sen) death and the murder charge on him. Whilst helping his recovery, the two fall in love against the wishes of her father. The Official Website calls it "A passionate love story, twisted by fate at its imaginative best".
Comment: The story traces its lineage to Hollywood's 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' which Priyadarshan has portrayed in 'Thalavattam' (Malayalam) and 'Kyon Ki'. Although some called it a comedy, I would call it a tragedy. Jokes involving the mentally challenged are history. The melodramatic climax actually leaves the viewer nauseating. Character development is poor with lead pair's love and chemistry hardly noticeable.
Salman is bearable and Kareena though plump looks adorable in sarees. Om Purie, Jackie Shroff and Rimi are passable. Sunil Shetty's cameo was avoidable. Of the songs, 'Kyon ki itna pyar' and 'Dil Keh Raha Hai' are worthy. Priyadarshan could rather stick to comedies like Hungama or Garam Masala for better BO success.
