Storyline

Life is not always like the movies. Love isn't always at first sight. Very often, a relationship develops slowly and it takes many years between "boy meets girl" and "boy gets girl". Hum Tum is a refreshing look at the eternal battle of the sexes as it follows the lives of Karan (Saif Ali Khan) and Rhea (Rani Mukerji). Karan is a cartoonist and his character "Hum" and "Tum" reflect his perspective on the strange love-hate relationship between men and women. Rhea is sensitive, well bred and self-confident. She can give as good as she gets and is not afraid of standing up to men. Initially, the two have very little in common. But, as life would have it, their paths keep crossing and, over the course of a decade, their relationship evolves, from hate to mutual respect, friendship and finally - In a cinematic universe that offers simplistic scenarios to the complex relationship between men and women. Hum Tum is a novel look at the trials and tribulations of "every man" and "every woman" ... Written by Official Source

Quotes

Karan Kapoor: [drunk] The tears welled up from her eyes... err... from her heart... I made her cry
Karan Kapoor: When the tears rolled down her cheeks, why did I feel pain here
[gestures towards chest]
Karan Kapoor: ?
Karan Kapoor: They're her eyes, her tears, but the pain is still mine. Is that justice?
Karan Kapoor: Yes, it is, because if the pain wasn't here, with me, then the tears and the pain would both be with her, and that's not justice.
Karan Kapoor: When both her tears and her pain belong to me, justice will be done.

An EXCELLENT movie with style and class
30 August 2005 | by fairygrammarmotherSee all my reviews

Hum Tum literally means Me and You.

At a book review for the new little cartoon, Hum Tum, journalists ask Karan Kapoor (Saif Ali Khan)if his story is hidden in the story that he wrote. Someone asks him what his story is, and Karan agrees to tell them. He begins where he first met a girl named Riya (Rani Mukherjee) on a New York destined flight. They meet and on a long layaway in Amsterdam, they can agree on one thing. They loathe each other. Riya thinks that she will never see Karan again, but she is wrong. When she is to wed Sameer, she sees Karan again. Karan was the wedding planner's (Rati Agnihotri) son. They still loathe each other, but Karan starts feeling a pull towards her. They have a couple of other quirky meetings that may either end in love or misery for them both.

As the main story is going on, Karan's cartoons take life and basically form a subplot. Hum and Tum are, ironically, each of the cartoon characters' names. Hum is the boy, and Tum is the girl. At first, they aren't friends, and as Karan's story goes on, theirs goes on in a similar way. Will Hum and Tum ever get together and form the celebrated Hum Tum? Or will they also never ever fall in love?

This movie is a very cute, clean romance between two people. It is not one of the regular Bollywood formulas, there is no parental interventions, and it just shows that love may develop over time. The romance that develops between Riya and Karan is strong, that even after viewing the movie, the watcher feels that they have been given something different from regular romantic movies. I recommend this film highly for anyone who even thinks of watching a Bollywood movie. Yes, there are cartoons, but they in no way detract from the movie.
