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 »

Enjoyable romantic comedy full of youth and zest
9 July 2005 | by (San Jose, CA, US) – See all my reviews

This movie is a real refreshing dose of entertainment. I should start off by saying that Ayesha Thakia did an excellent job. The vivacious actress seems very down-to-earth and straightforward. There's nothing very clichéd, or "filmi," about her looks and acting. Abhay Deol also had a nice debut. He did full justice to his role of a misguided, happy-go-lucky boy, who can never get his full dose of fun. Both actors were excellent choices for playing India's youth icons. Their characters do a good job of reflecting the (shouldn't be stereotyping...) overall youth culture. They want to live life to the fullest while they are still in college. They have values and respect for their elders while at the same time knowing that it's them who needs to live their own life. They are not rebellious, yet the idea of an arranged marriage seems quite preposterous. Abhay and Ayesha share and sympathize with each other's confusion resulting from the generation gap by hanging out, having lots of fun, and, of course, falling in love. In this fun-filled movie, for the first time in Bollywood, we get to see a down-to-earth film on arranged vs. love marriage from a new viewpoint, the Indian youth. Songs are nice.
