About Movie:

The movie starts with the whole bunch of actors getting together to celebrate Ramkishen (Alok Nath) and Mamta's (Reema Lagoo) silver wedding anniversary.

Ramkishan is shown to believe in the traditional Indian values of getting together. The fantasy of big one family & feel-good atmosphere is what keeps the audience glued to their seats.Ramkishan has three sons and one daughter kids(grown up)who share very close bonds with each other and with their parents.

Eldest son Vinod(Mohnish Behl) marries Sadhana (Tabu) and the marriage provides another opportunity for much singing and dress up. Prem (Salman Khan) gets engaged to Preeti (Sonali Bendre) and the third and youngest Vinod (Saif Ali Khan) falls in love with Sapna (Karisma Kapoor).Ramkishan dreams of keeping his entire family always together. The happiness of this picture perfect family is disturbed when the only sister (Neelam) and her husband (Mahesh Thakur) are thrown out of their house due to some family dispute by their brother.The whole family is extremely upset over Sangeeta's (Neelam) condition and Mamata starts thinking that may be this can happen too in our family...remember kaikai in Ramayan..now the movie is nineteenth century's Rammayan in which Vinod,Sadhana and Vinod goes to live in village in thier Haveli and then Bharat(prem) makes his mother realized what has been she doing and then all crisis are gone and once again family is together.

The performances were pretty good from the whole cast, except, of course, Salman Khan, who had maybe ten minutes of solo Dialogue.It is good to see that the underrated actors like Mohnish Behl and Saif Ali Khan got a chance to prove themselves. Out of the heroines, Neelam was the only one with a scope to really perform, and although her role is not the biggest, she looks very good and has done a good job.Sonali, Karisma, and Tabu don't really do much, but look good doing it.

The movie is just a worse of Hum Apke hai Kaun, minus Madhuri and Laxmikant berde. Hum Apke hain Kaun and Maine Pyar Kiya were absolute winners on account of their excellent music. This is where Hum Saath Saath Hain falls way below the comparision.The two previos movies were better in every way... but HSSH is bit boring with no story except good dresses and occasions were songs pop up.

The plot was totally boring and I could not see the point of this movie. Barjatya is copying Ramayan in some parts of the story. Director Sooraj Barjatya has really strived hard to give us another mega entertainer but the weak story line and the uninspired music just stop the movie from being a mega-hit. Not worth seeing Movie...Yaar...
