Alternate Versions

The UK release was cut, for the film's original theatrical and home entertainment releases a pre-cut version was used. However, upon a later re-submission to the BBFC for a DVD re-release the original unedited version was submitted to the BBFC for formal classification. Upon this submission cuts were required to two scenes of violence (slash to face with pitchfork, kick to crotch) to bring this version in line with earlier pre-cut version which was passed PG. These cuts made in accordance with former BBFC policy still used at the time of submission on different video versions of the same work. See more »

A good time pass film
21 February 2009 | by silvan-desouzaSee all my reviews

Indra Kumar's films are never original, nor they have anything new DIL was okay though too OTT, while BETA was too melodramatic but good RAJA was crap, ISHQ is good too nothing great

The first half is spend with slapstick OTT scenes which are funny mostly like the pipe scene is too much though stupid,

The love angles too have their fun The Exorcist angle is unnecessary and too much

The second half gets too melodramatic and things get boring but they are some good scenes like Aamir- Ajay clash and some more

Indra Kumar handles comedy quite well and drama too Music is very good

Aamir Khan has done comedy in AAA earlier and here he is in comfort zone and makes you laugh the most in the first half stealing the show with his one-liners and expressions Even in serious scenes he does a great job Ajay looks too silly in some comic scenes and overacts in some and is decent in some but excels in dramatic scenes and his chemistry with AK is terrific, i wish they work again together

Juhi acts very well in the mischievous role though she overacts at places but it suits well Kajol is unnoticeable in first half but decent in second half

Dalip Tahil, Sadashiv Amrapurkar are too loud and play the clichéd villains

Johny Lever is loud too but makes you laugh at places

Deepak Shirke, Tiku Talsania have some funny scenes
