Musical treat
25 October 2008 | by akshayashivSee all my reviews

One of the better films i have seen.And definitely one of the better by Subaash Ghai.Though having seen Saudagar and Pardes surely Ghai has a lot of better efforts .Truly not as good as Pardes.Story is same old and the screenplay is utterly predictable.Story is just the typical old triangle boy meets girl falls in love and sons dump of girl falls in love with another guy and guy 1 returns.Climax brings every thing.The movie is not that excellent but still a well made movie

This movie is enjoyable mainly because of the songs.Songs are excellent.The best songs are Kahin Aag Laage and Ramta Jogi.And the performances are excellent.Aishwarya shines in the role of Mansi and is so easy on the eyes in the emotional and dramatic scenes unlike ones like Sushmitha.Who also happens to be a fine actress.Her dancing is amazing.Akshaye was also good.Though this is the only performance that i liked of his.Anil Kapoor superbly stands out and gives a knock out performance.Overall a simple and yet a very entertaining film
