User Reviews

love over pots of tea....
14 February 2003 | by JAGDEVSSee all my reviews

This film has a lovely story that isn't your run of the mile bollywood over dramatised romeo & juliet style love story. The film itself is simple and unfortunately it shows. The film looks cheap in places and the direction is not at its best in times. The soundtrack is fantastic with lovey classic numbers such as baaton baaton me pyar ho jayega!" After several afternoon meeting with the heroine and her ever loving family. The hero comes to grips with the fact that his new best friend is actually the girl for him. it all ends very happy happy.. A good effort that is not bad. all in all a good watchable film
