Typical college film
21 March 2009 | by silvan-desouzaSee all my reviews

If you like such films then watch it It's not as stupid as KUCH KUCH HOTA HAI though and quite realistic in comparison(at least the friends are shown real) but the story goes for a toss

the characters suddenly change like the friends of Shahid who suddenly become good guys.etc

Plus the love angle is damn clichéd but the handling is good

The Karvachaut bit looks stupid too

The film is okay for people who want to remind their college days

Ken Ghosh did a good job though the script is faulty Music is good

Shahid looks nice and acts well but imitates SRK in many scenes and that got stuck to him for a long time otherwise he is decent in emotional scenes Amrita Rao handled her part very well Shenaz irritates

the rest are okay
