A stale tale, the story begins with Sahil (tusshar) a talented artist/cartoonist but an orphan. Then there is Ritu (amrita) who is the daughter of a millionaire (ram kapoor) and is working as a trainee. As usual, both of them get drawn to each other and as usual the objection comes from Ritu's father since he believes that artistes are not practical and follow their heart. After some persuasion, he agrees for their relationship but he sets a condition. Sahil must prove himself in three months and increase the profits of the company. What happens after that forms the rest of the story.
The director has come up with an uninteresting storyline and while the presentation was alright, the narrative was weak. The dialogues were normal, the script was not strong and the screenplay was below average. Background score was effective and only two songs are worth humming. Cinematography was colourful. Editing was regular. Costumes were trendy while the art department was matching the situations. Tusshar Kapoor has come up with a good performance as he fits the role well. Amrita Rao looks beautiful and she has performed in a nice way. Ram Kapoor was the best among the lot, he was intense. Madhoo looks gorgeous. Kiran Kumar was standard. Prem Chopra makes his presence felt. Jai Kalra was confident. Snigdha was supple. The others did their bit as required.
Given the background of the banner, one could expect the regular syrupy romantic treat but this time it went overboard. Most of the story was old fashioned and it ran on a beaten track. While the first half goes about with the elements of romance and melodrama, the second half gets unconvincing and with unwanted scenes. At the end, it tests the patience of the audience. Overall, this is a film meant for those who believe in idealistic romance and integrity so it is not sure how much this will appeal to the current day audience. At the box office, success is highly unlikely.
