Who would have expected such a polished product from such a young and inexperienced unit! PYAAR KIYA TO DARNA KYA is not without its flaws, but it provides the general public with the main ingredient – ENTERTAINMENT! The performances, the camera work, the direction, choreography, etc. are all up to the mark. However, the film suffers from bad editing, but this is hardly going to stop the family crowd from their enjoyment!
Cast: Salman Khan, Kajol, Dharmedra, Anjala Zaveri, Arbaaz Khan
Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya starts off with Muskaan (Kajol) persuading her over-protective brother (Arbaaz Khan) to come to Mumbai and study in college, which he soon agrees to. Once in the city, Muskaan meets a son of a millionaire, Salman Khan, who falls in love with her at first sight. A series of comical events follow, which are a pleasure to watch, especially with the wonderful expressions brought out by Kajol. Soon, elder brother Arbaaz finds out about the love affair which is yet in the budding stages, and forces Kajol to return to village. Of course, Salman pursues his lady-love and ends up being there too. Luck favours him, and with a little help from Dharmendra (Kajol and Arbaazâ€™s uncle), he manages to stay in their house. The rest of the film deals with Salman and Arbaaz coming to terms and finally the lovebirds getting together.
There are two sub-plots as well; one deals with Salman’s father whom Salman has left due to his stepmother, and the second is concerning a few villains who try to take away Dharamji’s family land. In spite of all this, love manages to win at last and everyone rejoices.
Kajol, as usual, does an excellent job, looking beautiful throughout the film. Sohail Khanâ€™s directing has definitely improved, along with Arbaaz doing a great job too. Salman’s entry is excellent with the introductory piece of “O O Jaane Jaana.”
