Shahrukh and Kajol goodness

This film deservedly has a huge reputation among fans of Hindi films. If you are unfamiliar with Bollywood cinema, you may be befuddled by the melodrama and musical numbers. If you love the genre, there's nothing better than a Shahrukh and Kajol pairing. Shahrukh has no equal in being goofy one moment and weepy the next. I saw this film after having seen Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, so I was a little surprised (and thrilled)at Kajol's sexiness in this film. It just shows that she can play anything to perfection. If you loved Kuch Kuch Hota Hai or Kabhi Kushi Kabhi Gham, this is a must see. The animated menu with cartoon Shahrukh and Kajol is hilarious, too!

Bollywood classic

This is the top-grossing Bollywood movie ever, and consequently is easily the most-imitated Bollywood movie - it's most notable for removing violence from the kitchen sink of Bollwood movie devices, for heavy use of foreign sets, for revolving entirely about its simple love story, and for starting the trend of Shah Rukh Khan acting this exact same role for 300 (and counting) more films.

This imitation makes it a little hard to judge - other films have copied it closely, improving on what needed work. The mostly comes down to the art direction, which simply wasn't as strong as with more modern films - modern Bollywood blockbusters have supernaturally colorful and interesting sets and costumes, with good editing and great cinematography. This movie didn't, and scenes tends to look a little dull and flat.

That's essentially the only weakness to be found. The acting is excellent, with great chemistry between the leads. The locations are interesting, varying between Europe (seen through Eurail traveller's eyes) and a family estate in an Indian village. One thing I really appreciated were the strong characters - even if they weren't given long monologues or speaches like they would have in Western movies, they all felt real, and acted in a manner consistent with themselves, rather than the demands of the plot.
