About Movie:

Anand (Sunny Deol) is the dutiful big brother, son and grandson and he took over the family business when he was very young. Now has an empire peddling selling soft drinks. He has a one-track mind in that he only thinks of his family. His younger brother Sunil (Apoorva Agnihotri) meets Nisha (Mahima Chaudhary) and they fall in love. This happens all in a day. Sunil first met the lady as a proxy for his friend and Nisha met him as proxy for her friend. Playing role of their friends they ensured that rejection was a success. Before Sunil and Nisha get time to tell truth about each other and confess about love, Anand's family decides he has to get married. After much coy complaint, he finally buckles. A meeting is arranged and the woman picked for him turns out to be Nisha. Anand falls for her, but is refused since she has this thing for someone else. Of course, she doesn't name her lover. But Sunil decides that he must sacrifice his grand passion for big brother. He tells Nisha to give sacrifice of her love. Things trail along till Anand finally learns out how things lie between the brother and Nisha. Sunil decides to get them married. Stop yawning there, we've just about dragged you up to the interval here. This is where the director finds that there is no action in the movie with Sunil Deol and so he introduces bunch of villains, Anand's business rivals, played by Monish Behl, Dalip Tahil and a couple of other creepy clowns. Trouble follows and Sunil soon vanishes in a car crash. Anand marries Nisha as she is pregnant, the typical movie trend. Then she gets a blank call -- heard by the entire family wherein she's informed that Anand killed Sunil in order to marry her. Then on the day of karva chauth -- Sunil comes back. Nisha is left wondering what to do with two husbands and nothing in her tummy but a baby. Finally after boring us a lot it ends with typical Hindi movie end which anybody can guess!

Sunny Deol adds dignity to the film by his presence, the only person for which movie can be beared just once. In short waste of Sunny Deol! This is Mahima's third film and she proves again that no matter how stupid the subject, she can give a consistent performance. Apoorva Agnihotri needs a lot to polish up his act. In Pardes, it was Subhash Ghai who made Apoorva to act in better way. But to tell the truth Sehgal doesn't qualify. The family is composed of actors like Reema, Dina Pathak and Kulbushan Karbhanda. Songs are not good except for 2-3 songs including the title number and 'Yaad piya ki aani lagi', the compositions by Jatin-Lalit are okay and more of boring. The cinematography is average. Seghal named the film Pyar Koi Khel Nahin, and it has no relation with film! Before making movie Subhash Seghal was on editing and it is better if we only stick to that. The tale is old, very old and very common about love, sacrifice, and the shocking ways of fate. With no way of a story, the scenes in movie chase each other like episodes in a B-grade soap.
