Trivia

When the group reaches the Airport, Shaleen asks Jiggy if he has confessed his love to Mala. He replies that if he would do that, Mala would give him a 'GPL', which is an abbreviation of a Hindi slang 'Gaand pe laat', which means 'to get ones' a*s kicked'. See more »

Goofs

In the second chorus of "Pappu Can't Dance," Imran Khan is supposed to appear to be lip syncing the chorus, but he starts lip syncing too late and only "sings" the second half of the the line. See more »

Quotes

Aditi Mahant: We used to spend so much time together because we wanted to be with each other, because we were happy together! It is not a duty or an obligation that you should spend time with me. So please, don't ashame me by saying sorry.

Nostalgic... common but unique!
5 July 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

OK... let me start off by saying HATS OFF AAMIR!!! YOU ARE GR8!!! Now for the rest. VERY IMPRESSIVE! Imran has left me stunned. Genelia has improved her performance a hundredfold since Mere Baap Pehle Aap. Ratna Pathak Shah was brilliant! She was at my school directing a play 2 months ago, and I never expected she was so good! Naseeruddin unexpectedly looks gr8 in his small funny role. The few new characters introduced also gave a decent performance! The story is simple. The name says it all - two people are in love, but they lack the sense of maturity and the guts to face it. Both are into finding each other a life-partner, and the whole thing is how they realize the truth...

The climax is like many other films, but in a very unique manner! New characters are introduced till the end, which keeps you involved. The characters successfully cast a charm on you and you can actually feel as they do. Some parts will really make you smile and laugh, while others will make you feel great.

The music also adds to the fun, friendship, and fun. The touchy script succeeds, cinematography and editing could be better, choreography pretty good, and, all-in-all, one must-watch performance. A great start for Imran and a great No. 2 for Genelia. Way to go Aamir, I wonder what will happen to the industry without YOU! And of course, well done Tyrewala! Your first and amazing!

Easily an 8/10. I wonder why the Times of India gave it a 2.5 while it easily deserves a 3 or 3.5...

Go for it!

And I assure you, there's no heavy display of sad emotions. So you won't be crying at any point of time!
