For something so silly and so long, however, the film is surprisingly engaging, thanks largely to its very watchable actors; it's easy to see why they are international stars in the world of Hindi films.
Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (Never Say Goodbye) contains set pieces so spine-chillingly effective that people may still be talking about them 20 years from now.

A film that's clearly out to raise eyebrows, even as it provides all the over-the-top spectacle that mainstream Indian cinema is famous for.
