Really Refreshing!
11 September 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A really refreshing and superbly made movie for the young genre of audience.The plot revolves around Nikhil "Nick" Arora(Saif Ali Khan) and Amber(Priety Zinta).Nick is the Gen-X cool kinda dude who's a chef at a restaurant and Amber is a medical student funding her fees by working as a Radio-Jockey at the station named "Salaam Namaste".How they fall for each other and start living together is shown quite sensibly without the normal hum-bug and drama.Director Siddharth Anand has put in lot of efforts trying to capture the young mind-sets of Indians living abroad.So Nick and Amber start living together and start a relationship.Everything is fine until Nick and Amber find out that Amber's pregnant.nick wants it aborted and amber insists on keeping it.Fight and mayhem ensues and they break-up.They live under the same roof but avoid and sometimes trouble each other.Finally nick realizes what mistake he's making and woos amber back.Saif Ali Khan is awesome in the movie and proves once more that hes that damn good at acting as he's in his looks.Preity gives a powerful performance and looks ravishing in those small dresses and short hair.Arshad Warsi(Ron) as Nicks Geeky but lovable and cute guy,has performed brilliantly!Tania Zaetaa('Who dares wins' babe) us absolutely forgettable.Javed Jaffery has u in splits and proves hes a force to reckon with when it comes to comic timing!Overall an awesome experience and I do hope u all will catch it.Its a complete entertainer.The music is not that bad.A very enjoyable movie especially with your sweetheart in your arms.
