Goofs

In the song "Hum hain raahi pyar ke"'s 4th part starring Priety Zinta, she and Raj dance close to a tree. t is accidentally touched by Raj, and the tree trembles for a few seconds. This is because that part of song had a digitally added background and therefore the tree was fake too, and so it shook on a slight touch. See more »

Not Typical, but treat to watch
15 December 2008 | by (Pakistan) – See all my reviews

First of all i would like to comment on the dare step taken by the A. Chopra to make a movie on such a middle class topic.It's an excellent movie with very different approach. I am amazed after reading different reviews. Come on folks, don't expect King khan all the time doing the Millionaire roles.

Excellent direction, outstanding performances with average music. Script of the movie might be a much tighter. I am not a SRK fan by any mean, but after this movie, i started thinking by doing this.

In the end, very good family drama movie and treat to watch. Come on folks stop dreaming Glamour all the time. These low budgets and middle class story movies are the real time facts of our lives.
