Massive Disappointment!
17 August 2001 | by rajivgillSee all my reviews

Too much hype was made about this film and I'm sorry to say that it falls flat on its face in the end. It's draggy and you can't help thinking, "Cut the crap and get to the point". But the problem is, there is no point! It forces its tagline down your throat. "Some love stories live on forever", it insists. That's sweet and all, but there are better ways to show that than this film!

There are too many people in the cast. Kim Sharma is highly irritating. Her acting's unconvincing and her outfits are a disgrace! Shamita Shetty shows more of her body than her acting skills. Preeti Jhangiani is fine. The three young men show more promise, but I do wish their characters had shown more interest in their studies. They're way too carefree for students of a highly respected and strict school (or so we're told). SRK is well...SRK. He's doing nothing new in Mohabbatein. I personally feel that the role of Narayan Shankar is too elusive. There are many doubts with regard to his character, but Amitabh is perhaps the only ray of light in this otherwise clouded movie.

The music is melodious, especially "Humko Humise Churalo" and "Rhythms of Mohabbatein".

If I have any praise for this film, it's only for the music. Otherwise, it's a MAJOR disappointment and I have no doubts that it did well only because it a) is a YashRaj production b) has good music c) brings SRK and AB together

Sorry folks, but these Mohabbatein won't live on forever.
