Takes a refreshingly liberated and modern stance on relationships by ultraconservative Hindi film standards--and having such savvy to go along with the usual sweetness adds to frothy charms.

Audience Reviews for Hum Tum
Fun comedy, never gets old! Doesn't require too much thinking, but also doesn't default to slap stick humor. After years of watching fast(er)-paced movies, this movie does seem to take things a little slower than I'd like, but overall has great acting and chemistry.
Hum Tum is a fairly westernized film, compared to the average Bollywood fare. However, this seems to work to its advantage here as it tells the stories of the playful and naive Karan (Saif Ali Khan) and the beautiful Rhea (Rani Mukerji), who seems to be his very opposite. After a chance meeting on a flight to New York, they continue on with their individual lives. The film follows them as they manage to find each other in different places all over the world, learning more about each other and becoming better and better friends along the way. Khanâ(TM)s performance shines, and he is successful in making Karan still lovable, despite his wily ways, and Mukerji is similarly flawless, bringing the lively, effervescent Rhea to find even her more vulnerable side. The dance numbers are well done, though perhaps slightly more lackluster compared to other, flashier films. However, the script is very good, with the humor sharp and the motives real.
Wonderfully well-written! Great characterization. Intriguing cinematography. Rhea is focused, fierce, and determined. Karan is carefree, immature, and a bit of a womanizer. Their initial meeting on a flight to the US reflectively marks a series of wily and highly amusing banter of the minds when they summarize each other's capacities. As they continuously meet over time, the two begin to learn more about each other and a friendship flourishes. Their numerous interactions further strengthens their bond, and their feelings for one another begins to evolve. Saif Ali Khan, Rani Mukherjee, Rishi Kapoor, Rati Agnihotri, Kirron Kher, Jimmy Shergill, Abhishek Bachchan, and Isha Koppikar stars. Worthy!
