On the surface Ishwar's life seems like something every man would crave for; a great and profitable business, a loving son and a caring and dutiful wife Sumitra or so it seems. Aditya is in love with Mitali and vice-versa who is the daughter of Nathu. However after the initial problems that occur, the two of them finally end up getting married. Ishwar hopes that marriage will make Aditya a more responsible man but he is disappointed. His efforts to turn Aditya into a more responsible individual turn futile. One thing leads to ...

Good film with powerful emotions
10 July 2005 | by AishFanSee all my reviews

Amitabh once again delivers a power-packed performance! He never fails to impress me and just gets better with each film. Akshay, who is also delivering hit after hit, does a terrific job. I liked the combination of Amitabh and Akshay much more in this film than in Ek Rishtaa. The two talented actors created magic on the screen while delivering their dialogues straight from the heart. The story sinks deep into your heart making this film a real tearjerker. On the other hand, the fantastic duo of Boman Irani and Rajpal Yadav create sidesplitting comedy! Shefali Shah also gives a brilliant performance. Despite being so much younger, she did full justice to her role as Amitabh's wife. Priyanka didn't have much of a role, and she doesn't suit the role of the stereotypical Indian housewife. The only thing that bugged me about this movie is how Priyanka was treated. For crying out loud, a pregnant woman shouldn't starve!
