Storyline

Refusing the accept the same fate as her sisters, Tara and Meghna, and get married to a boy from the same Caste, Kanpur-based Sona Mishra alienates herself from her accountant father, and re-locates to Mumbai in order to act in movies. She meets with Satish Chaudhary who offers to assist her in getting a lead role. Years later, all he could manage was bit parts, leaving her frustrated but hopeful. She meets with another struggling actor, Vikram Jaisingh, and both become fairly intimate. When a lead role with Satish does not materialize, and his wife, Pinky, becomes suspicious, she decides to depart. Disappointment and shock also await Vikram when he is candidly told by his friend, Abhimanyu Gupta, that he has no talent and must consider returning back in Delhi to assist his businessman father. It does look like the end of the road for both Sona and Vikram - leaving the question open whether they will continue with their relationship &/or return to their respective homes.

Trivia

The scene where Shah Rukh Khan walks into a lounge (as himself in the film) and meets Farhan Akhtar for the first time, he is shown to be accompanied by a man of his age. This guy is none other than Mushtaq Sheikh who is Shahrukh Khan's age old friend in real life and has written quite a few books on him apart from penning Om Shanti Om (2007) and also acting in it. In a way he is related to the plot. When Shah Rukh Khan tells Farhan Akhtar that he should not be forgetting his friends from the old times, a message is being conveyed because the superstar himself is shown to be in company of those (read Mushtaq) who have been with him through his good and bad times.

A commercial movie without any masala => Great MOVIE !!

This movie is so far i can remember is the only movie which has all the QUALITIES of "masala" movie, i mean treatment etc (which audience call "bollywood" movie) except the SCRIPT. I liked watching this movie because it was fresh. It's dialogues were the best one. the characterization was the best as each & everyone had a negative shade. Some of the scenes like of Karan johar & Shah rukh khan were really moving one. Ending was different no typical climax kind but what were the dialog's of that scene people must think about it. Music could have been better, it was not of that trio standard. The reason why i liked watching this movie is that it was DIFFERENT. But i still believe it could have been little bit more better. & also I'm scared that half of the viewers wouldn't be able to digest the kind of ending it has shown. It's a must watch for those who has, had or will have an association with Indian film industry.
