Samir is a very successful doctor: He not only looks after his patient's various maladies, but also looks after his female patients' hearts. Most women fall for him and his irresistible charms. The only person who has not fallen for him is his dutiful nurse Naina. Whenever a girl gets too close to Samir and starts talking about marriage, he sends her off by telling her he is already married. However, one day, he meets Sonia, a beautiful young woman and Samir is smitten. When she learns of his 'wife', she wants to meet her -- and Samir introduces Naina, as well as her niece and nephew, as his wife and children. Samir then arranges a fake divorce from a fake wife with the help of his best friend, lawyer Vicky who, despite having a steady girlfriend, frequently flirts with Naina. To complicate things further, Samir's mother suddenly appears and doesn't want her son get divorced from Naina (when he isn't married to her in the first place).

Trivia

Just a few days before its release, Salman Khan starer Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya was shrouded in controversy of a rare kind. Urdu poet Nida Fazli had accused film's lyricist Sameer of lifting lines from his collection of poems published in 1978. The song in question is 'Sajan Tumse Pyar Mein', where according to Fazli the opening lines of the song have been lifted from his work. Fazli was planning to file a case of plagiarism, as he hasn't received any response from Sameer. Sameer had cleverly modified the lines claims Fazli. However, Sameer insists that the song is slight modification of the Bhojpuri number he had penned down for Rishi Kapoor-starer Eena Meena Deeka, a decade ago. See more »

A no-brainer, total nonsense masala movie
15 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

Turned out to be exactly as I expected: A no-brainer, total nonsense masala movie. Exactly what we expect from David Dhawan(DD). But I don't mean any of it in a bad way, coz the movie never tries to be anything more, and in its silliness and absurdity, works well for the comedy genre, while sticking very much within the confines of clichéd family entertainment.

The excuse for a story revolves around a bachelor Casanova Doctor (Salman Khan) in love with a model (Katrina Kaif). But to leave the relationship just to an affair, he tells her he is already married. When she insists on meeting the Wife, he ropes in his ever-doting Nurse (Sushmita Sen) as his fake wife. We also have Arshad Warsi play a sidekick/friend to the doctor, and Sohail Khan as Katrina's intervening neighbor.

As usual, DD defies all logic and intelligence for a movie that is out of his assembly line. It is not one of his best, but definitely better than the mediocre ones he has made us suffer. The comedy is not loud (except for the Rajpal Yadav scenes) and works mostly, especially with Salman and Arshad translating it with their impeccable timing. Sushmita Sen is her usual warm self. Katrina Kaif is a Bombshell, looking every bit as gorgeous as made out to be. And even though she hardly acts, she never comes across as plastic. Sohail Khan is forgettable at best and annoying at worst.

If you are getting bored and have three hours to spare, you'll have a good time watching this instead.
