Trivia

The seven-minute song "Do me a favor - let's play Holi" took seven days to film. This was due to a series of factors - the time it took to set up the sets and equipment; the time it took to film the scenes; the time it took to clean up the sets; and one unexpected setback - Priyanka Chopra got electrocuted when she stepped on a loose wire. Fortunately she spent only one night in the hospital. See more »

A tragic saga of Love
20 May 2005 | by atindraSee all my reviews

Simply great movie no doubt about it. Great story and superb performances, be it Amitabh, Akshay, Shefali, Priyanka, Boman or Rajpal. Hindi film industry is going shameless with Mallika and Co, this movie is totally vulgarity free and therefore bound to fail in vulgarity addicted our Indian society. But the message and concept this movie carries are absolutely superb. Anu Malik(boring copy-cat) could have been avoided and Ismail Darbar or Himmesh Reshmmiya could have been used as musician. I think Vipul Shah should have given little bit Gujarati touch particularly in music also. Anu Malik is worst musician around and he thinks himself popstar but this is not the movie where is presence was required-He looks only good with Govinda style songs. I felt some nice serious music with couple of good Ghazals or sad songs could have made this movie more memorable.
