Kabhie Kabhie is a film about love story of generations, a film that happens ‘sometimes’.
Love is poetry in action… watching the sunset in each other’s eyes… dreaming of a perfect future together… two becoming one… fate deems otherwise… one generation later, friendship prevails… Kabhi Kabhie, life comes full circle.

To date, Yash Chopra maintains that Kabhi Kabhie was an art film in commercial garb. First of all the title was very poetic, secondly he had Amitabh in a moustache and as a father of two young adults. Yash Chopra’s financer and friend Gulshan Rai even told told him after watching the film that he wasn’t keen on risking his money. There were thin chances of success for such a film. But Yash did not budge on the film and yes the movie was just moderate success at boxoffice but it still remains as cult romantic movie made ever !
Kabhi Kabhie is a story about a young poet Amit (Amitabh Bachchan), and the young and beautiful Pooja (Rakhee Gulzar).
It is a story about how these two young and loveable hearts visualise a perfect future together – But destiny has other plans, as Pooja bows to the wishes of her parents and marries Vijay (Shashi Kapoor). How Amit drifts away from his poetry in an futile and unsuccessful attempt to leave behind his memories of Pooja by getting married to Anjali (Waheeda Rehman ) – How picture perfect is the life of Pooja and Vijay together is what a part of Kabhi Kabhie is about.
Spanning over to the next generation and how Pooja & Vijay’s son Vicky (Rishi Kapoor) and Anjali’s daughter Pinky (Neetu Singh) from her relationship prior to Amit – And Anjali & Amit’s daughter Sweetie (Naseem) come together, and a chain of events bring together old lovers as friends, some 20 years later is what forms the rest of Kabhi Kabhie.
