Karan (Bobby Deol) was wealthy and a mansion was his habitat. Raj (Akshay Kumar) had empty pockets and the sky was his roof. Karan's jet ensured that he could fly if he wanted. Raj could only depend on his two feet. Karan had a family and yet craved love. Raj had love to share, but craved a family. Karan was the eternal Casanova. Raj was the proverbial one-woman man. Karan had it all, and yet felt empty. Raj had nothing, but his heart was full. They were two people as different as can be. Yet they found a common ground. One that led to the glorious road of Friendship! Their bond was unshakable. If Karan gave Raj a home and all the material comforts, Raj gave Karan a shoulder and all the emotional security. If Karan supported Raj at every step, Raj covered up for all of Karan's misdoings. They laughed together, lied together, loved together and fought the odds together all in the name of friendship.

Did You Know?


Bobby Deol brought back his trademark long hair with the film. He had short hair from the film Badal in 2000. See more »


In the hospital scenes several patient monitoring equipments are seen but Raj is not connected to any of it. In none of the scene he is seen wearing any sensors. In fact the computer monitor on the top of table is not connected to any equipment. So clearly there is no way for medical staff to know what exactly is happening to Raj. See more »

This is what Bollywood is all about.
2 January 2006 | by sikh1975See all my reviews

No shoddy remake of a Hollywood film. No re-hash of countless other buddy-buddy movies seen in Bollywood. No violence and no scenes that a family watching together would have to squirm at.

Great songs, superb performances and a good solid Indian story. Suneel Darshan has again created a film that you can watch again and again. Bobby puts in one of his finest performances, Akshay is reliable as usual, Kareen and Lara give good performances for the time they have on screen. And its great to see Juhi in a role where she is not the older sister.

Two wonderful twists, great comedy, wonderful drama, an emotional roller-coaster of a film that shows what Indian cinema is good at.

Forget the Hollywood remakes, this is the type of film we love to see Bollywood producing.
