Storyline

Aman (Sanjay Dutt) is a poor, handicapped orphan who is befriended by wealthy Akash Verma (Salman Khan) during his childhood. Akash's parents adopt him and give him their family name, and Akash and Aman grow up as brothers. While Akash is a womanizer, Aman takes to writing poems under the pen name Sagar. The poems get published, and Aman becomes very popular. One of his fans is a young woman by the name of Pooja Saxena (Madhuri Dixit), who corresponds with Sagar. Akash meets Pooja and falls head over heels in love with her. When Aman comes to know this, he asks Akash to pose as Sagar, which he does, and Pooja and Akash fall in love with each other. A heartbroken Aman looks on, as he knows that although women may like his poetry, they will never come out openly and love him when they see his handicap. At the end, Akash discovers that Aman is actually Sagar and loves Pooja, so he decides to sacrifice his love for Aman. Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

A Wonderful Love Triangle..!!
22 September 2011 | by wasiimjunggeeSee all my reviews

Saajan-the superhit movie till date. Saajan brought us the romantic love triangle.. It was extremely a terrific performance by the leading stars though Salman Khan was in a supporting role he gave his best. Story,Screenplays & dialogues was critically acclaiming. Music,Lyrics & Choreography was a hit. Salman-Sanjay & Madhuri pairing was really amazing. Kader Khan brought us his comedic dialogue style again. Background Scores,Views & locations were well selected.Direction by Lawrence D'souza proved a successful one.Sanjay Dutt handicapped anonymous emotional character was excellent.. Hats Off to Sanjay Dutt. Great Performance by the three stars.... Overall its a mixed romantic drama script covered the Saajan theory completely. The Climax sequence was totally fresh & cool.Despite the film over length it was characterized perfectly. I personally rate this film 8.6/10 citing the above statement with an excellent credited casting....!!
