Storyline

'Kyun! Ho Gaya Na' is a situational romantic comedy -- a simple story about love and life. Diya Malhotra is an idealistic, sensitive girl whose childhood was spent in the coffee plantation town of Coorg. Her father, who single-handedly raised Diva after his wife passed away, decides that Diva should travel to Mumbai to help his friend Raj Chauhan, a confirmed bachelor, run a small orphanage that he has in his home. Diva will stay at the home of the Khannas, who also are friends of her father. Diva then meets Arjun Khanna, a seemingly free-spirited, fun-loving, adventurous guy. The two soon realize, however, that they will be staying in the same house since the Khannas, her father's friends, are Arjun's parents. The friendship that develops between Diya and Arjun and their opposing views on love and marriage are at the heart of this film. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Big Disappointment
19 October 2004 | by Can89See all my reviews

The much hyped Kyun Ho Gaya Na, surely disappoints. Then main flaw in this film is the dull storyline. There are a few touching moments in this film, but there aren't strong enough to stay with you even after the film has ended. Kyun Ho Gaya Na, lacks emotional content. And even, the comedy is not really funny. For any love story its important that the on screen chemistry between the hero and the heroine is just right. Sadly, there is absolutely no romantic chemistry between the real life lovers Ash and Vivek. Music is quite good, especially Pyaar mein, No no and Aao na which have been picturized well. The remaining songs could have easily been cut out. Cinematography top notch, the film looks gorgeous. Aishwarya Rai doesn't look the part of Dia and her performance is disappointing. Vivek O'beroi is excellent. He not only looks, but also plays the part of Arjun effortlessly. Vivek's performance comes out as natural and breezy. Om Puri is good as always, Rati Agnihotri seem to getting a lot of mother role lately and she plays them extremely well. Tinu Anand is fine in a small role, Amitabh Bachchan is annoying. Sorry to say that but, an actor of his caliber shouldn't play such mediocre characters. His performance looks fake and childish. Sunil Shetty is adequate. Unfortunately, Kyun Ho Gaya Na doesn't live up to expectations. Apart from Vivek's acting, a few good songs and the fantastic visuals nothing else is appealing about this film. 6/10.
