Storyline

Falling in love. It's very easy to do. Being in love - now that's the tough part. Nick (Saif Ali Khan) - He's a chef. Ambar (Preity Zinta) - She's a Radio Jockey. They're young, they're cool, they're independent -and together they make the PERFECT pair. Or do they? Surrounded by quirky friends, bosses and landlords but far away from home. Nick and Ambar take a huge leap of faith as they decide to move in together. And now they must tiptoe towards getting to know each other? They are attracted to each other - but they fight. They live together, but as friends, in different rooms. They're in a relationship - but then again they're not. They seem to want the same things, but it seems that they have very little in common. Between all this chaos, they find out that Ambar is pregnant. Nick doesn't want the baby. How the two handle this dilemma is what will decide the direction this relationship will take and be the real test of their love. So are they really made for each other? Are they ...

Really Refreshing!
11 September 2005 | by mandar_cyberfunSee all my reviews

A really refreshing and superbly made movie for the young genre of audience.The plot revolves around Nikhil "Nick" Arora(Saif Ali Khan) and Amber(Priety Zinta).Nick is the Gen-X cool kinda dude who's a chef at a restaurant and Amber is a medical student funding her fees by working as a Radio-Jockey at the station named "Salaam Namaste".How they fall for each other and start living together is shown quite sensibly without the normal hum-bug and drama.Director Siddharth Anand has put in lot of efforts trying to capture the young mind-sets of Indians living abroad.So Nick and Amber start living together and start a relationship.Everything is fine until Nick and Amber find out that Amber's pregnant.nick wants it aborted and amber insists on keeping it.Fight and mayhem ensues and they break-up.They live under the same roof but avoid and sometimes trouble each other.Finally nick realizes what mistake he's making and woos amber back.Saif Ali Khan is awesome in the movie and proves once more that hes that damn good at acting as he's in his looks.Preity gives a powerful performance and looks ravishing in those small dresses and short hair.Arshad Warsi(Ron) as Nicks Geeky but lovable and cute guy,has performed brilliantly!Tania Zaetaa('Who dares wins' babe) us absolutely forgettable.Javed Jaffery has u in splits and proves hes a force to reckon with when it comes to comic timing!Overall an awesome experience and I do hope u all will catch it.Its a complete entertainer.The music is not that bad.A very enjoyable movie especially with your sweetheart in your arms.
