Shah Rukh Khan,
After the passing of his Trinidad-based father, Surajratan Dhanraj, Casanova Tej is asked by the family solicitor, Vakil, to confirm with his father's last will - namely that he should not only marry Punjab-based Samarpreet Kapoor but must remain married to her for a period of 10 years - or else the entire estate will be transferred to an association that ensures the welfare of turtles and crabs. Tej and Vakil accordingly travel to Punjab, meet Samarpreet and her family, and the couple get married. Tej returns to Trinidad, mails a cheque every month, refuses to communicate with her, and continues with his lifestyle as though he was never married. He is friendly with a supermodel, Shimmer Canhai, and through her meets a young woman, Sammar Capore, and instantly falls in love with her. He accepts a bet with Shimmer that he will successfully woo and wed Sammar but is in for disappointment when she prefers the company of a male named Jigar. Tej sets out to ruin Jigar's career.

o.k. So this movie was lacking in the dialog department. Also it is over-the-top in a way that only Bollywood can carry off. Unfortunately it is difficult to tell in this movie if the silly melodrama is the plan or if the directing was abysmal. None-the-less, in a year of mediocre movies I enjoyed it. The stories are interesting. The younger female role, played by Ishitta Sharma was acted with sensitivity. The friendship between Shimmer (Sushmita) and Samara (Ishitta) was interesting. But it is the scenes between Shushmita Sen and Shahrukh Khan that make this movie. Shahrukh plays his character straight in this very melodramatic film and it proves to be the saving of what would otherwise have been an unwatchable film. The scenes between him and Shushmita are touching and fun and their story makes the movie.
