Trivia

Dharmendra produced this movie as a launch pad for his nephew Abhay Deol. Dharmendra earlier successfully launched both his sons Sunny, in Betaab and Bobby, in Barsaat. Both these movies were hits but he couldn't repeat the same success with Abhay. Though the movie didn't do much good for Abhay and the débutant director Imtiaz Ali, both young guys went on to make a niche for themselves. See more »

Wonderful movie
6 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

A very light hearted and straight forward movie, Socha Naa Tha might have crashed at the box-office. But it touches hearts in a way that not many movies do. Director Imtiaz Ali has directed a wonderful plot which is very usual in any Indian household. The chemistry between the couple is very naturally presented. I had fallen in love with this movie instantly. The lyrics of the songs may seem vague at first. But they relate and amalgamate to situations so appropriately. The dialogues are very 'day to day'... which contribute that the movie is not out of this world. I would say it is a better movie than Jab We Met, the second movie by Imtiaz Ali.
