  • 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 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.

  • 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.

    August 15, 2006 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Overlong and plodding.

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

    Johar try to experiment in this one but fail flat. I am not against the idea that they leave their husband / wive because they fall in love, but the way its shape up is just idiocy. The music was even forgettable. Forget it.

    Absolutely fantastic! Here is a beautiful, and heartwarming movie that follows a pair of unlikely individuals who meet and are connected by one factor: true love. Dev and Maya are total strangers when they meet in a garden. Maya is hesitant about marrying her closest, childhood friend Rishi. Dev is a married man with a small family of his own. The two strike up an interesting conversation about true love, soul-mates, and happiness that later leaves them feeling a bit confident about their places in life. Several years later, they meet again and vastly become friends. Their past fears and troubles escalate, and the two began to question their current situations in which they are striving to make the best within their relationships whether they are happy or not. But, now, they have also realized that they aren't the same person as they were when they first married their spouses. Their marriages are suffering, and they are determined to make their relationships work regardless. As their joint plan later begins to unravel and worsen, the two feel the pressure and uncertainties of whether love and relationships should ultimately be saved even if they are no longer in love with their spouses. As they are growing fond within their friendship, the two realize that they are also falling in love with each other. The two pursue this newfound love, and later are forced to come to grips with their relationship. Great cast- Shahrukh Khan, Rani Mukherjee, Preity Zinta, Abhishek Bachchan, Amitabh Bachchan, and Kiron Kher. Great music! Vast appearances by Kajol (she's looking absolutely fantastic) and John Abraham. Definitely worth seeing!

    Well, first of all. this movie is really good. But what I really didn't like is that there were too many things going on all at the same time. Although, everybody's acting was awesome and the songs were good too, I didn't really enjoy it as much as I thought I were going to.

    As i assumed, it was a crappy movie. I in fact didn't want to watch it but then got to watch 2nd half of it for free and I was thanking God that I didn't have to watch the full crap. Ridiculous story, mediocre acting and I don't even want to talk about direction. Pathetically emotional and unbelievable good, understanding and sweet characters. In my rating half star is for the whole movie and one star is to Amitabh even though it was not even close to his good performances.
