What makes this movie so great wasn't the story line. Definitely not, considering for the first 2 and half hours there was virtually no conflict. The rising action of Prem and Nisha falling in love was what made this movie brilliant. Salman Khan and Madhuri Dixit have the perfect chemistry and considering they were both powerhouse actors used to their full potential, this movie felt heavily realistic. The romantic interactions between the two seem like something we'd see right in front of us, as if we were apart of the family too.
The rest of the cast seemed like they really were family members. The comedy and friendly interactions between all of them seemed all too common. This was the first time a movie did that while being successful. The effect was several more movies followed the Romantic Comedy without violence approach. For generations now, HAHK may seem like a cheesy and sappy love story but when it first came out, it broke records everywhere. Prem and his Bhabi have a loving relationship where he respects her like a mother but also has incredible fun with her. The traditional Desi relationship between a Bhabi and Deewar. The final Lo Chali Main song with him and his bhabi is incredibly cute and funny.
This movie was and still is the best musical romantic comedy created by Bollywood. It could easily be broken down why.
This movie consists of 12 musical numbers and each and every one of them were entertaining and catchy. Only 2-3 of the songs were actually deep in meaning but even they were fun to sing along too. The pathos in each song and chemistry between characters makes people like us want to go out there and dance along. Songs such as "Didi Tera Deewar Deewana" and "Wah Wah Ramji" have permanently assimilated within the Hindustani culture.
As the story progresses you can see more how relationships develop and you will be hooked. It might feel too lovey dovey and happy but there are no boring scenes. Which I can only say about a few other movies such as; 3 Idiots, Lagaan and Black. If you're life isn't depressing, you'll love this movie.
