Saif Ali Khan,
A poor New York resident, who is of Indian origin, dreams of becoming a fast car race driver. He endeavors, and his efforts are rewarded when he selected by a little-known group called 'RACING SADDLES'. He joins them and soon becomes their ace race driver. This man, whose name is Rajveer, then meets with a rich American woman, also of Indian origin, whose name is Radhika. Both fall in love with each other. They cannot get married, because Radhika's family hates Rajveer mainly because he is very poor. But Radhika is very stubborn, so she marries him. She loses all her rights to her family's wealth. They get married and become parents of two children. They also become very rich. Then Rajveer has an accident which changes their lives forever. They get into debt and stand to lose everything. Will Radhika be forced to return back to her family? Written by

The movie starts at (Present Day - 1 Year), at the race where RV crashes his car. At that point, we flash back 8 years prior, where he started his career and meets Shona. In the NYC of 9 years ago, the city looks identical to the present day, including advertisements for currently playing Broadway shows. See more »
And even so it may not be worth it. A "Rags to Riches, back, and back again" story that leaves much to be desired. And surprisingly the weak link is Saif Ali Khan - he sleep walks and grimaces through the role of RV, the cabbie turned NASCAR superstar who cannot hold on to his money. His kids are called Princess and Champ and there is even a cute dog. Rani is his wife who keeps the family on a steady path and always believes in her man. She was very cute early on as she fell in love with the cabbie, and she was very good later on as the burdened woman - the only reason to see the film. The songs were mediocre, the racing scenes were well done except for Saif flashing his teeth as though he was in some comedy routine. There were supposedly heartbreaking moments, but you felt not much as it was all so formulaic and often verged on caricature. There was not much of a story, and it is no wonder the film did poorly. New York landscapes and the Manhattan skyline, a new sport to focus on - these do not work without a decent plot.
So watch it if you are a die hard Rani fan - otherwise avoid.
