Ranjha and Heer fall in love with each other, but fate has something else in store for them. All the songs are memorable, especially "Milo na tum to, hum gabraye, milo to ankh churaye, humhe kya ho gaya..."; "Meri..duniya.. mein tum aaye, kya kya apne saath liye, tan ki chandi, manh ka sona, sapnon wali raat liye..."; "Do dil toote, do dil harhey, duniya walhon sadhke tumhare..."; "Yeh duniya, yeh mehfil, mere kaam ki nahin...". And to top this all the dialogues rhyme too! Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Immortal love on screen
22 July 2003 | by vibhu_puriSee all my reviews

It is based on legendary tale of love and passion from the land of punjab. wrtitten in 16th century by Warris Shah, the cinematic adaptation is brilliant! since the original creation is in poetry, the director took a bold step to have the entire film in rhyme...which strangely work like magic. inspired by the paintings of sobha singh, a legendary painter from punjab, the imagery of the film is wonderful. thanks to cinematic genuis of cinematographer jal mistry! sets and art direction of the film also stands out, and so does chetan anand- the director and kaifi saab, the dialogue writer!
