Narayan Shankar (Amitabh Bachchan) is the headmaster of an elite and prestigious boys school, Gurukul. Shankar believes in honor, tradition, and discipline, and disapproves of anything that would take a students mind off of his work--especially love. Into this atmosphere comes Raj Aryan (Shah Rukh Khan), the new music teacher, who believes in the power of love, and encourages his students to break Gurukul's traditions. Three of the students, Sameer (Jugal Hansraj), Vicky (Uday Chopra), and Karan (Jimmy Sheirgill) fall in love and, as a result, risk expulsion.
The love intersts are played by Kim Sharma, Shamita Shetty, and Preeti Jhangiani. The cast also includes Aishwarya Rai, Amrish Puri, Anupam Kher, Archana Puran Singh, Shefali Shah, and Helen.
While being mostly predictable, this is a fully entertaining film. Bachchan and Khan give strong performances, for which both received awards. The six young people were credible and mature in their roles. The music was good and the choreography, though not exceptional, was enjoyable to watch. The girls' costumes, however, were mostly sports bras and super-short minis, an outfit not attractive for any of them. One other negative point was having to watch Khan fake playing the violin--it was painful to see at times. Other than that, this is a feel-good movie that was a pleasure to experience.
