Storyline

Wealthy Anjali falls in love with poor Dev, both want to get married, but Anjali's family objects and instead get her married to equally wealthy Ram, who lives with his uncaring step-mother and siblings. Anjali finds out that Ram is not respected, but does not care as she does not love him. Ram continues to be affectionate toward her and his family, but Anjali cannot get Dev out of her mind. Then things change, when Ram decides to assert himself and asks his family to leave him and his wife alone. Anjali starts warming up to Ram, when Dev shows up - this Dev is not the poor Dev that Anjali once knew, this Dev is a multi-millionaire, scheming, and devious, and a Dev who will try to win Anjali over by hook or by crook.

Great story, great acting...Great!
28 February 2002 | by sweetrupturedlightSee all my reviews

This was one of the nicest movies in a while. Im not a great Sunil Shetty fan, but he was amazing in a role it seems was made for him. The story was basic, yet another bollywood love triangle, with a twist this time. Instead of the old, the new prevails. Not only is Sunil good, but the rest of the cast performs as well. Shilpa Shetty was solid, and Akshay...well, what can i say, im a fan, so im bound to be biast! He looked fantastic. I loved the softer side to his character, it contrasting so startlingly with Sunil's character.

However, where there are ups, there has to be downs. i have to say that there are a lot of unanswered questions in the story.

* How does Sunil become rich? * What exactly does he do to bring Ram to an almost bankrupt state, and * How does her fall in love with Mahima's character so quickly? Rebound? Her father doesn't look to pleased with the news of Dev as a prospective son-in-law...Why?

Unanswered, and a bit frustrating. But the bad outweighs the good. A must see if you love romance mixed with emotion. O! and if you're an Akshay fan of course!
