Movie Info

Translated into English as "Something is Happening," this Hindi-language Bollywood film tells the story of two close friends at college, male Rahul (Shahrukh Khan) and tomboy-ish female Anjali (Kajol). Seemingly proving the age old theory that men and women can never be platonic friends without complications, Anjali falls in love with Rahul, without his knowledge. Rahul then tells the poor girl that he's fallen for Tina (Rani Mukherji), and Anjali flees the college. The tale then cuts to a point in time years later, after Tina has unexpectedly died, leaving Rahul as a single parent, free to meet Anjali again.

  • For well over two hours the film is hectically entertaining, its performances, camerawork, storytelling and extensive musical numbers all energetically colourful.

  • There are no prizes for guessing exactly how the film concludes, but all that really matters is that we enjoy getting there.

  • Karan Johar's directorial debut was much hyped before its release, but it offers little to distinguish it from the average Bollywood melodrama.

    <b>Kuch Kuch Hota Hai</b> is a romance that stands out from the typical Hollywood love story -- paying attention to detail and character development in a way in which I've rarely seen before. Great melodies, especially the title song. <i>Shahrukh Khan</i> and <i>Kajol</i> are the best pairing in modern day's hero's and look wonderful together. I recommend this to anyone who wants to be swept away by a good story and great actors.

    This movie kinda revolutionize Bollywood movie which is sad cause it took Bollywood such a long time (sarcasm). SRK and Kajol chemistry is like Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan!

    Great movie with an amazing story plot by Karan Johar. Great cast-Shahrukh Khan, Kajol, and Rani Mukherjee are all phenomenal!! Great love story about two college pals (Rahul and Anjali) who do just about everything together, until the principals's daughter (Tina) arrives and Rahul quickly falls in love with her. It is then, that Anjali also begins to realize her love for Rahul, but is suddenly too late to confess her love. Eight years after, Rahul loses Tina after childbirth and raises his daughter (named also Anjali) with his mother. On her 8th birthday, young Anjali realizes her mother's greatest wish to reunite both Rahul and Anjali. Fantastic music, sweet songs!! Definitely worthy.
