Beautiful love story from Yash Chopra
11 October 2008 | by akshayashivSee all my reviews

The Chopras yet again proves why they make such wonderful movies.This movie is absolutely wonderful.It has comedy,drama,romance and deep emotions etc.This has been shoot in Rajasthan in the first half.Visuals in Rajasthan are dazzling.Second half is shoot in London.Visuals were simply stunning.Camera work is first rate.Costumes are beautiful

Yash gets full marks for giving us amazing performances.Sridevi,is no doubt the scene stealer,she has given a very balanced performance.She had a wonderful role.She also looked stunning .Anil Kapoor has given a very moving performance.Yester year Waheeda Rehman is great.Anupham is OK.Deepak is good.Dipy Sagoo is good.Story well pretty weird at times is a westernized story.Almost your typical formula.Dialogs are excellent and so is the direction.

Songs are great especially the parody.Songs are pictured beautifully.My favorite visuals were in Kabhi Maan Kahoon and Yaad Nahin Bhool Gaya and Moorni Baaga Maa and Megha(with great lyrics,a graceful Sridevi and Latas melodious voice)and Hari Harans magical voice in te title song and a graceful Sridevi in Mohe Cheed

Despite that,the movie is good and a must see
