Storyline

London-based Dr. Manoj Sharma returns home to Delhi, and in the company of his parents, Kishan and Anju, as well as several others, travels to Chaman Ganj, Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh to meet his prospective bride, Tanuja Trivedi. He approves of her, informs his elders and they begin preparations for the marriage. Subsequently he gets a rude awakening when Tanuja tells him that she already has a boyfriend and plans to marry him even against her parents' wishes. Manoj informs his parents, and they set about to see other girls for their son - albeit in vain - as he has his heart set on Tanuja, and is all set to return back unmarried. Manoj and Tanuja are fated to meet again in Kapurthala, Punjab, while attending the marriage of Jaspreet Singh Jassi and Payal Sinha. While Manoj hopes to win Tanuja's heart - he will face more rejection when she enlists his assistance to elope with another male. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Not your usual cast of characters
8 December 2012 | by (FL) – See all my reviews

I am not a big fan of Kangna and before watching the movie I was convinced that Kangna will flop at playing the role of a small town girl. However, I must say that Kangna performed very convincingly as Tanu from a small town in UP. Movie had lots of twist and turns but was very convincing up until the end. Madhavan as Munnu Ji was also very likable and convincing. The guy falls in love with a girl at first sight and does things for her even though she is cruel to him. Overall a very good movie that exceeded my expectations. The music of the movie was also very good. Especially like the punjabi songs. My favorite one was kadi sadi gali .. I also liked the rehash of Kajra mohabbat wala. Supporting cast was also strong.
