I watched only because of the music
20 February 2013 | by varghesejuniorSee all my reviews

I watched "Humse hai muqabla" only because I likes 2 songs in the film -Urvasi Urvasi and Muqala Muqabla.

Story - Basically a love story with a mix of politics and crime in it. A college secretary from humble background falls in love with the chief minister's daughter, and that is not accepted by their families.

The best aspects are only the music, the choreography and some of the stunt sequences. That's all.

Otherwise the film is just phattu and lengthy - comedy, dance, action...all this mixed in over 2.5 hours. Surely it cannot work out nowadays.

Simple description, right?
