Maya Talwar is a kindergarten teacher married to her childhood buddy Rishi. Rishi is a passionate and affectionate husband but Maya is unable to reciprocate his love because of the lack of feelings towards him. A chance encounter brings Dev and Maya together. Since their respective marriages are falling apart, they decide to help each other to salvage their marriages, blissfully unaware of what the forces of love have in store for them. What starts as a pleasant friendship develops into love and an extramarital affair which soon throws the relations between the two couples in turmoil. Written by Soumitra

Quotes

Dev Saran: The guy waiting for you inside, is he your friend or your love?
Maya Talwar: [pondering over his question] Hmm.
Dev Saran: You shouldn't take this long
Maya Talwar: [smiles] I have known Rishi since childhood... After my parents died, Rishi and his father became my family.
Dev Saran: That's sweet but that's not the answer to my question... Do you love him?
Maya Talwar: I do... But not the way I thought I would love him.
Dev Saran: Then like how? Like the kind of love found in good books and bad films?
Maya Talwar: No, the way that love ought to be... That kind of love.

have an open mind
12 August 2006 | by demidunSee all my reviews

i gave it an 8 because granted the music wasn't as great as one would as liked but the movie is different and i saw it the day it opened and i am still thinking about it. the movie is bold and different from the typical karan johar movies, it's gets really funny and gets serious. you have to keep an open mind, and if you don't take the contents of the movie to mean that you can cheat on your husband, you'll enjoy it. traditionalist keep an open mind and people you complained about karan's first three movies as being the same and that's true. here is a movie that has never being done in bollywood and it's sad that people are trying to compare to the Hollywood movie closer. there are huge differences between the two movies, closer was about two dishonest couples who took life as a game and lost each other in the process. KANK is about finding out that sometimes when you commit in haste you can hurt others as well as yourself in your quest to make things right. the portrayal of shahrukh as a husband jealous of his wife's success is right on the money about the pressures couples face when the female takes control. can't wait for it to come out on DVD.
