Close to the heart and Sweet
27 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

Im a huge movie buff--I've basically seen them all and Barsaat is a movie I recommend everyone see, despite its few flaws. It is a very distinct remake of Hollywoods "Sweet Home Alabama" with Reese Witherspoon and Patrick Dempsey, but in all honesty I enjoyed Barsaat more.

There is very realistic chemistry between Bobby Deol and Priyanka Chopra, especially towards the end. While the storyline, with a man and two completely different women, is nothing new to Bollywood films, it was executed in an entire unique style. Bipasha Basu acts as the Americanized love interest of Bobby Deol and I think she comes off well as a light and bubbly character. Priyanka Chopra's role is the exact opposite as she plays the completely Indianized childhood love of Bobby Deol, however her acting is quite commendable, especially in those deep and touching scenes where she intelligently counters Bobby Deol in battles of the wits. Bobby Deol too surprises in this light, romantic flick as his character is lovable yet strong. It is easy to recognize his deep feelings towards both girls.

The songs in the movie are especially good. "Nakhre" is an excellent upbeat tune, it will get anyone dancing. "Mushkil" and "Barsaat Ke Din Aaye" are my favorite songs, as they are both extremely sweet and the vocals are amazing.

Overall I recommend this film to anyone who likes watching light, feel good films. Families can even watch it together and enjoy. It makes everyone want to fall in love and goes in a different direction than most movies with similar story lines. Therefore I say FORGET WHAT THE CRITICS SAY and WATCH IT! Trust me, you wont regret it :)
