Storyline

During 1996 Raj Sharma, while in Switzerland, meets with Amritsar-based Mahi Pasricha, successfully woos, then dumps her. Then during 2002, he meets with aspiring model, Radhika, who is also attracted to him, and both move-in to live together in a small apartment in Mumbai. When he gets the opportunity to settle in Sydney, Australia, he dumps her and re-locates there. Now it is 2006, and Raj has met a brilliant taxi-driver, Gayatri, who he falls in love with. The question remains, will his attraction again be temporary? And what will be the consequences if Gayatri finds out about his past? Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Trivia

Since two of the film's characters work for Microsoft Game Studios, plenty of video games that have been released by the studio are referenced. In addition, nearly all of the movies referenced are previous releases from Yash Raj Films, with the notable exception of Hum Kisise Kum Naheen (1977). See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Mahi misses the train, she is shown reading Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince. Even the first book in the Potter series wasn't released in 1996. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Raj Sharma: [In Hindi] Love. Affection. Fondness. Passion. Whenever it happens with someone, it changes one's life, the heart starts beating faster and makes you sigh. It gives you sleepless nights, one tends to daydream, it teaches you what it means to love someone. It teaches you how to take those seven steps, which lead to the journey of seven lives. If you're lucky, you find your love, in just one shot. My case is different. I am a killer. I found this love three times.

Definitely not a copy!!!!!
16 August 2008 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I absolutely loved this film. It was extremely entertaining and a lot of fun. I loved Ranbir and Minissha Lamba also did a fantastic job. A lot of people, like the reviewer hottomato , are going out of their way to say that this film is a lift off, almost as if they have a point to prove. First of all, this film couldn't have been ripped off from "Definitely Maybe" that released in the US on Valentine's day this year. Obviously these people don't know how long it takes for a film to be written, produced and released. Let me tell you that it takes longer than 6 months!!!!!!! Secondly - a lot of films have similar elements, especially romcoms. That's the genre. Boy and girl meet, boy loses girl, boy gets girl and lots of stuff happens before, during and after...Like that then, every rom com is a lift off except the first one that was ever made!!!! I would recommend this film to anyone has has ever been in love, had their heart broken, has been dumped or has dumped someone. Go watch it!!!!
