Aman (Sanjay Dutt) is a poor, handicapped orphan who is befriended by wealthy Akash Verma (Salman Khan) during his childhood. Akash's parents adopt him and give him their family name, and Akash and Aman grow up as brothers. While Akash is a womanizer, Aman takes to writing poems under the pen name Sagar. The poems get published, and Aman becomes very popular. One of his fans is a young woman by the name of Pooja Saxena (Madhuri Dixit), who corresponds with Sagar. Akash meets Pooja and falls head over heels in love with her. When Aman comes to know this, he asks Akash to pose as Sagar, which he does, and Pooja and Akash fall in love with each other. A heartbroken Aman looks on, as he knows that although women may like his poetry, they will never come out openly and love him when they see his handicap. At the end, Akash discovers that Aman is actually Sagar and loves Pooja, so he decides to sacrifice his love for Aman. Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

7 January 2008 | by Dream_WomanSee all my reviews

This has to be one of my personal favourite film from the 90's era. I loved the music, just everything was great, and my mum loves the film too.

Madhuri Dixit, god i rememberer watching her when i was like 7 years old, and when i saw her i was like, she is so beautiful i wish i could be like her when grew up, anyway back to reality she looked amazing in this film, acted really well and danced beautifully.

Sanjay Dutt is a great actor, there can never be no one like him in bollywood and their never will be, he truly is one of a kind and i love him so much as an actor, he can show true emotion like he did in Shabd, wow he amazes me in every film, Salman Khan was also brilliant in the film, all 3 of these great actor were so cute back then and look hot as ever now, overall this is a classic. please do watch it.
