Indian writer/director S.J. Suryah's third telling in three years of his own tale of obstinate young soulmates is brought to the big screen in his 2003 romantic Bollywood comedy, Khushi. Youngsters Khushi (Kareena Kapoor) and Karan (Fardeen Khan) both end up at Mumbai University for different reasons. Karan had intended to study in Canada, but was forced to remain in India after sustaining injuries in a car accident. As for Khushi, continuing her studies was merely a way to escape from being married off by her father. The two meet by coincidence, become interested in one another, and break up rather quickly after Khushi accuses Karan of having lewd intentions when she catches him staring at her navel. The young would-be lovers are forced to reunite, however, when some mutual friends from different castes are forced to elope due to their romance having been declared forbidden by their parents. Suryah's original Kushi was shot in Tamil in 2000 and was then followed with a Telugu remake the following year. This -- his second remake -- was shot in Hindi and garnered decidedly mixed reviews and less than stellar box office upon its 2003 release. ~ Ryan Shriver, Rovi
