Rohit (Hrithik Roshan) and his younger brother Amit stay with
a Christian couple (Satish Shah and Farida Jalal). Rohit works
as a salesman in a car showroom but has a dream of becoming
a great singer. He meets Sonia (Amisha Patel), a rich girl
and falls in love with her. Sonia manages to take Rohit with
her on a Singapore cruise along with her friends. On the cruise
they get drunk and get lost from everyone and land on a lonely
island. Then, as in all Hindi movies they sing, dance and
decide to be life partners.
The rest of the film follows the general pattern of previous
Rakesh Roshan movies. Bad guys cause much trouble and mayhem.
Normal life is disrupted. But things start looking up in the
second half. How Roshan does it would spoil the fun but let
me say that it is somewhat similar to yet very different than
what he did in Karan Arjun and Khoon Bhari Mang.
of the predictability of the first half of film it still has
the freshness of new comers, exotic locations, beautiful foot
tapping songs and excellent choreography. The second half is
a thriller and keeps the audience interest gripped in the movie.
Hrithik acts pretty well for his debut film. He is a good actor
with his skills of dancing, fighting and emotional stuff. On
the whole Hrithik has a good future. Amisha looks very beautiful.
She has done an excellent job as a newcomer. Supporting cast
members Farida Jalal, Anupam Kher, Satish Shah, Mohnish Behl,
and Ashish Vidyarthi are okay. Johny Lever is very irritating
in his thankfully short role. Rajesh Roshan's music sounded
beautiful and breathtaking and added with extremely beautiful
locations such as Greece, Fiji Islands, New Zealand, and a cruise
ship made it much better. Lucky Ali's "Aye Mere Dil" song was
good. The tittle song "Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai" and the "Dil Ne Dil
Ko" are the best of all the good songs. After Khudgarz, King
Uncle (With Anu Agarwal and Jackie Shroff), Kishan Kanhiya (With
Anil Kapoor in a double role), Khoon Bhari Mang (With Rekha),
Karan Arjun (Shahrukh and Salman starred) and Koyal (Not so
good movie), Rakesh Roshan brings us "Kahoo naa Pyaar Hai" which
is the best film of 2000 till now. Rakesh Roshan's direction
is extremely good. Overall, Kaho naa Pyaar Hai is certainly
a must-see film, after garbage like Mela and Bulandi.
