Fantastic!!!
8 June 2005 | by madiljuSee all my reviews

I love this movie! I supposed only a real fan of Madhuri and Sanjay can really say that. Every scene they were together was priceless. I just love seeing them together and that undeniable raw chemistry they have between them. Sanju waited some 3 yrs to see Madhuri again and it showed in this movie. My heart broke to pieces seeing the way Sanju look at her. I understand it was hard for Sanju to shoot this film and even that intensity showed out in few scenes. I absolutely love them. The music was great. The 3 dance numbers Madhuri did were wonderful... Loji Sunoji, Ek Taraf Akeli, Chule Chule. Even though the storyline was kinda redundant but over all I think it's definitely worth watching even to a non-fan of these two. As for me, it's pure heaven! To quote Sanju's word... "If only life is like movie".
