Storyline

The film begins with the recovery of Simar (Priyanka Chopra) and her husband Nikhil (Arjun Rampal) from a car accident. Simar is almost unscratched but Nikhil not only has major internal and external damage, but he also has amnesia. Simar is determined that Nikhil will get better and resume his life, and immediately begins by bringing in the best surgeons to reconstruct his damaged leg and face, and then later helping him with the hospital therapy. Although Nikhil is at first cautious and wary, Simar's obvious love and dedication wins him over. After six months of therapy he's released from the hospital and the couple return home. Simar insists that Nikhil continue with his life and encourages him to go back to work, though beforehand she warns him that there are both good and bad people all around, and it's up to him to decide whom to trust. Once Nikhil meets up with his old friends and goes through his personal files, he finds evidence that all was not well in his previous life. Now... Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

A different type of love story--very well made!
11 August 2005 | by (San Francisco, California) – See all my reviews

Yakeen Review Simar (Priyanka Chopra) and Nikhil(Arjun Rampal), a married couple have fatal accident in which Nikhil is seriously injured. Nikhil loses his memory but his wife Simar, and friends Shekhar(Ankur Nayyar) and Tanya(Kim Sharma) help him to start his life all over again. The story takes a turn when Nikhil tries to find out about his past. He questions different people and they have different stories to tell. In his attempts to find out about his past, he encounters Chamman(Saurabh Shukla), a private detective who has information about his wife Simar. Together with the help of Tanya, Nikhil finds out shocking truths about his past and his wife.

The first half is quite engrossing, with the story moving at a brisk pace. The director maintains a good grip though songs spoil to a certain extent, but the tight screenplay make up for it. The second half could have been even better if the writing was better. But the sloppy writing and inclusion of songs result in the story losing the momentum. Though the truth, when revealed leaves the viewer shocked to a certain extent, but at certain parts of the film the poor climax lets the movie down.

The music of the film is very disappointing. Yakeen should have been a song-less thriller. Cinematography is good. Screenplay by Vikram Bhatt is excellent in the first half but could have been better in the second half. Director Girish Dhamija does an excellent job.

Arjun Rampal looked so handsome and makes a sincere effort in handling a complex role. He does a good job overall. Definitely one of his better performances. Priyanka Chopra is a very beautiful actress and does well in a role tailor made for her but her dialogue delivery has to improve. Kim Sharma is OK. Saurabh Shukla is excellent. Sudhanshu Paandey is superb.

Overall, Yakeen has an untried concept but fails to back it up with a strong script.
