Trivia

The song "You Get Me Rockin & Reeling" was originally with most of the vocals sung by Neeraj Shridhar. However, Shah Rukh Khan wanted more female presence in the song, being a love ballad between him and Priyanka Chopra and asked Pritam Chakraborty to re-record the track with more lines sung by Dominique Cerejo.

are you a good friend and real down to earth person? go watch compare and check yourself !!
19 February 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Nowadays most films are made to give important message for life so that everyone can connect with it. This film touches one's heart by giving great example of true friendship between two childhood friends.

Both friends found themselves in different situation after childhood days of friendship as one became rich while the other remained poor but their bond of friendship was intact in their heart. The poor friend has started believing that his friend might have forgotten him after such a long time and after getting fame and money but in reality that was not the case instead he is still reminding his childhood friend and always wanted to meet him. The character of rich friend shows real down to earth personality of a person and example of true friendship that never fades irrespective of money and fame at the same time the character of poor friend and his wife also shows that being poor never restrict you of being good person.

Over all this is very good film and must watch for its heart warming subject of friendship.
