Goofs

While playing in Swiss Alps, Ranbir and his friends are heard singing "Dhoom Machale". The story in this movie revolves around 1996 and Dhoom wasn't released until 2004. However, background music is rarely dictated by which time period the film is in. 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.

Among The Best This Year
17 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

Well, I did the long trip to see this because the publicity made Deepika look so good. It was no exaggeration, she looked stunning. In time I'll get used to that. I also wanted to see Ranbir have another chance with better stuff to work with. This movie WAS better put together than Sawaariya and Ranbir is capable of impressing me when he is given a decent chance. I had forgotten I had ANOTHER personal draw in this movie, and that is Kunal Kapoor. The first girl that Raj (Ranbir) meets is Mahi, a Punjabi girl whose marriage has been fixed by her family. Kunal is the groom they chose. Later in the movie, Raj gets to meet Mahi's husband, and that is Kunal's part. Of the two, I'm convinced that Kunal is the better actor. He is usually chosen for a certain kind of part, the kind he got in Meenaxi. Here he is a husband who has passionately loved his wife from long before they married but finds her coldly dutiful, something that is Raj's doing. The talks the two guys have were a high point for me.

Contrary to what I'd been led to believe, this movie has good music and dance. I think my favorite was Raj at the wedding where he sings and dances Punjabi-style. But the two songs when he is with Mahi and later with Gayatri were almost as enjoyable.

The Times of India rated this 4 of 5, and I have to say I agree with that rating. The dialogue is above par, there were only a few minor flaws in the screenplay, things that I think might have been improved (especially in the second half where Raj becomes Rhadika's personal assistant). And doggone it, Kunal was 11 out of 10 for me and Deepika 12 out of 10. This rates as one of the best three 2008 releases I've seen.
