Storyline

Wealthy Anjali falls in love with poor Dev, both want to get married, but Anjali's family objects and instead get her married to equally wealthy Ram, who lives with his uncaring step-mother and siblings. Anjali finds out that Ram is not respected, but does not care as she does not love him. Ram continues to be affectionate toward her and his family, but Anjali cannot get Dev out of her mind. Then things change, when Ram decides to assert himself and asks his family to leave him and his wife alone. Anjali starts warming up to Ram, when Dev shows up - this Dev is not the poor Dev that Anjali once knew, this Dev is a multi-millionaire, scheming, and devious, and a Dev who will try to win Anjali over by hook or by crook.

Beautifully shot movie
31 May 2012 | by honeyjoseph2001See all my reviews

I have seen this movie few times; but I don-now how many times I watched most of its songs. Overall I love this movie very mush esp the songs, its photography etc... The songs Dil Ne ye ...stands out standing and the one Na Na is also great especially the church scene. Sunil Shetty's acting remains great for me...basically a super movie and I would love to watch that again...Kudos for its director Darmesh Darshan I first watched this when I was in England and I owned a Video Cassette tape. However I used to watch its songs on Youtube. Then I bought a DVD of the same since moving to Australia. As the quality of the DVD was not good; I had to watch again from Youtube via Smart TV...which was simply but great...
