About Movie:

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.

Inspite 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.
