Phir Milenge (2004)
Philadeplhia rip off
I have seen this movie and although I felt it did address an issue which i have not seen dealt with in Bollywood...i did think it tried to copy Philadelphia.
I work with AIDS patients, or shall I say people who have advanced HIV infection. I have met many Asian people with the virus and I felt that this film did not address them.
If the movie had gone on a unique road...maybe come up with different areas of suppression, maybe dealt with the HIV issue without having to copy a hugly successful Hollywood film...then it may have been entitled to the respect it was due....but copying another movie to put across a message...i felt, lost its appeal.
The tagline is not very optimistic either. It doesn't matter if you have HIV or if you test negative....Life can still disappear...in a moment. The tagline is saying that once u are diagnosed...ur life disappears.....death is imminent.
How about the thousands of people who are surviving Aids...living 20 odd years? How about representing hope? This film I feel has let down the message of what Aids is about...and I feel has used another film to up its ratings. It was poorly told, the script was not very good and the only commendable performance was given by Salman Kahn.
