Good Old Bollywood days.

The catchy songs and interesting cross-cultural themes make this movie entertaining, but it's still the least impressive Bollywood movie I've seen and I'm surprised it's considered a classic. Most attempts at humor are cringe-worthy, as are a handful of the characters, and the plot is even more cheesy and predictable than I'd been prepared for. Mahima Chaudhry's beauty is stunning and Shahrukh Khan has charisma to spare, so it's too bad that they and the rest of the cast were stuck playing characters whose actions, and overreactions, I had trouble believing.

it was a good movie, but i hate how there are no subtitles. it made following along difficult. there were some funny parts to this, but it was mostly sad cuz theres alot of family violence in this movie-both from rajiv and ganga's dad. what irks me most about indian movies is that they portray women as defenseless and weak-willed (ie, ganga cries alot when she should be fighting back). its strange that i havent been able to figure this out, even though i did a report recently about indian movies and the stuff behind them. other then the violence stuff, the music was pretty good (mere piya, and yeh dil), and all the actors did a good job-even that backtabbing 'auntie'.
