Baabul, is a drama movie, it has a great story to keep you watching it, and the performance of every actor present is amazing, but Rani Mukerji shines in this movie.

Rani and Salman together are pretty cute. And Amitabh and Hema, of course! But there wasn't a lot of interest to the film-- it's not one I am going to have all my friends over to watch.

I was quite taken with the idea of the movie, but it really fails to live up to its potential. Good stuff from Hema Malini (like Hema is ever bad) and Om Puri (as the voice of tradition), and I would walk through fire for Rani Mukherjee's smile. But overall . . . it is pretty nonsensical, and definitely would have benefited from someone going, "hey, wait a minute" during the production. Or before the production. (Like, "hey, wait a minute, these songs don't actually use a piano so maybe he shouldn't be sitting at one.") Or, for that matter, after the production. It has good intentions, but it could have been a very, very cool movie and it ends up totally schmaltzy and basically without charm.

Amitabh is brilliant as always and carries the film. Salman is a nob (as he mostly is nowadays); considering Amitabh is supposedly Salman's hero, he did a pretty lame job. John Abraham puts in a good performance considering he shares screen time with Amitabh. Rani is ok.

This is a family film with a serious underlying message of how widows are treated in India. Women-folk will love it.

Beautiful, heartwrenching, uplifting, and so sad and wonderful. This movie was like a soft caress and a punch to the face all at once. This is how all movies should be. Absolutely Gorgeous. A must see.

Baabul is nothing but a new wine kept in old bottle. Rani Mukherjee looses her husband Salman Khan in a road accident leaving her heart-broken. So to bring happiness in her life, her father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan decides her re-marriage with her last longing best friend John Abraham. But for that he faces opposition from his entire family including his wife Hema Malini due to their conservative life-style. Ravi Chopra's directorial vehicle has a noble idea but sadly it is constructed with outdated screenplay sharing resemblence with Raj Kapoor's ''PREM ROG'' having similar widow re-marriage track. the basic problem of this film is that the decision is taken by Amitabh Bachchan and John Abraham, here they doesn't ask Rani what's her opinion on it? Is she ready to rebuild her life?. She has just now lost her husband, can't they give time to her to forget the memories of her deceased husband, she really needs time to overcome the trauma...................Should always men decide what a women should do and not do? these are the factors which makes the film a tiresome and embarrasing watch. AMITABH BACHCHAN, RANI MUKHERJEE & JOHN ABRAHAM are wasted in a thankless roles which fails to justify the talent. When such social relevant films arrive, u expect some novelty in it. Unfortunately, this film lacks novelty. BAABUL is noble-failure. Disappointing!!!!

Such a good movie. The underlying message is a great one, about widows in India. I saw it twice and cried both times. Very good acting from Rani.
