Dev Saran is a disgruntled former footballer who is jealous of his wife Rhea's successful career as a fashion magazine editor. 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

an adorable relationship that was beautifully shot ..
5 November 2006 | by llusiousSee all my reviews

I really don't understand how people can have so much hate against this movie. No offence, but i think some people over analyse movies way too much and try so hard to find meaning and concepts in the movie which aren't there because they weren't intended. Some people don't seem to 'understand' how Dev falls in love with Maya (vice-versa) or how they could salvage such love for that prolonged period of time after they separate from their spouses, and I think that's one of the stupidest thinks to not 'understand' if you are an avid Bollywood movie fan. There have been countless examples of such prolonged and unexplainable love in Bollywood movies in the past and it seems quite unfair to judge this movie badly for that aspect alone. I don't know if it seems highly improbable to the audiences around the world of how they continually keep on meeting each other, but it's another common example found in Bollywood films. Some scenes (I agree) could have been perceived better but the music (and accompanying scenes) I feel was beautifully sweet. The point is, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna was quite a beautifully shot story of adorable love, and portrays challenges with marriage and love (although it has been done before and sometimes better) and with fair acting on some and excellent for others (I was highly impressed with Abishek's performance ^^). Appreciate it for what it was and (im saying the stupidly obvious but..) if you've found such unforgivable flaws then try and think how you'd fix them.
