Kaho naa pyaar hai? Kaha naa pyaar hai. Irrespective of how tacky it might sound, however everybody would agree that in some unspecified time in the future in our lives we fairly favored it. Years earlier than John Inexperienced’s Okay? Okay! was popularised by the 2014 movie The Fault in Our Stars, Bollywood discovered its personal model of a short romantic dialog, which did not want many phrases to elucidate the emotions of the individuals in love, when Kaho Naa Pyaar (*21*) was launched in 2000. Sure, it has been 21 years for the reason that launch of the movie which gave Bollywood its very personal Greek God in human kind, Hrithik Roshan.

In Hrithik’s Rohit and Ameesha Patel’s Sonia we noticed ourselves. Irrespective of how unrealistic it might appear right this moment, most of us dreamt of a love story like theirs after we first noticed the movie. A wealthy woman falls in love with a poor man was what made the Bollywood love tales again then. Rohit’s attractiveness may need performed their allure, however hey it was not the one factor for which Sonia falls for him. Nicely, let’s transfer ahead. They first meet at a visitors sign and immediately develop liking for one another. Smiling at a complete stranger at a visitors sign appears so 2000 within the time of left and proper swipes, no?
When did the unintentional conferences flip into deliberate getaways, no person realised. When Sonia receives her tickets for a cruise to Singapore, she does not need to go. However when her pal tells her that he had made association for Rohit to affix them, her happiness has no bounds. At this level, we realise how harmless and naive one can get in love. Seeing Sonia pick petals from a rose to seek out out if Rohit loves her or not prompted many to strive the trick to seek out out the emotions of their crushes about them.

The best way Rakesh Roshan shot the island scenes made the movie-viewing expertise extra magical. The blue waters, white sand and Sonia’s pink skirt, every part provides to the aesthetics.
