"This is yet another love-triangle but made very aesthetically. This is perhaps the only Aishwarya movie I've watched repeatedly...because I've enjoyed her "chemistry" with Salman. She can dance well yes, but act...I still doubt it. She sure looks like a doll on screen but truly does not make my heart beat or head turn...she's meant to model.
Salman's funny, as always...but what makes this movie very special & warm is Ajay's character. I wanted to hold him in my arms and cry...I wanted to give him my shoulder to cry on...he's an ordinary looker but extraordinary performer!
The songs are simply mind-blowing because of Kavita Krishnamurthy's outstanding singing...after Lataji & Ashaji, she's the next legend!"
An amazing, excellent film-highly recommended

"This and Kuch Naa Kaho are my two absolute favorite Bollywood films.
This one just surpasses all for the music, costumes, singing, dancing, length of film you get for your dollar, acting, you name it.
Aishwarya Rai, Ajay Devgan, and Salman Khan give most excellent performances and all look picture perfect throughout the film. The scenery is amazing. This film is what I consider "monumental" as one can see the amount of time, effort that went into making this film.
Love, love and more love...the romance is intriguing-made me want to marry Ajay on the spot, but preferred Salman's light-hearted character a bit more.
I'm more than a little tired of the whole father picking the husband for the daughter routine-wish India would catch up with the western world in that respect, but glad to see it turned out all right in this film.
Highly recommended-buy the soundtrack too and blast it while driving around town. I can't tell you the bizaare looks I get when I get to a stop light and folks hear Hindi music!! Make your neighborhood culturally aware :)"
