An Entertaining Movie
30 March 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was going to be a typical, romantic cliché. But i was extremely wrong. Sure this movie's plot wasn't unusual but it is a romantic flick, and it has quality and plot twists, and most importantly, entertainment; and at the end of the day that's all that matters. It is a love story so there is no need to over analyze the movie. Camera angles weren't too great and neither were the songs, but the script was good and comedic (and i'm very picky when it comes to humour). The acting was fairly good. Although there weren't any really dramatic scenes, Abhay Deol and Ayesha Takia were very convincing in their roles, and best of all, no overacting which we see in most bollywood movies. I hope Deol and Takia are very successful in their acting careers.
