Bring hankies, because the ending is an old-fashioned tearjerker.

Even amid the delights of this Bollywood spectacle, Dev and Maya are left fretting like leftover characters from a Douglas Sirk melodrama -- not so much passionate as sorrowful and poignant.

For a good part of his run time, Johar succeeds in crafting something genuinely absorbing and fairly uncompromising--which makes it all the more disappointing when he ultimately succumbs to his more formulaic candyfloss instincts.

It's sad as all hell at times, you bet, but it can also be riotously funny and the musical numbers are pure unadulterated joy.

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.

If you like this sort of thing, bring a pillow for your butt, you will need it.

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.

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.

Generally good but works better in bits than as a whole.

At over three hours long it's left to the lighter comic moments, provided by Amitabh Bachchan as an outrageously flirtatious pensioner, to keep the momentum going.
