Farah Khan in his directorial debut weaves three plots among toe-tapping, shoulder-shimmying songs in this three hour Bollywood extravaganza. Major Ram Prasad Sharma (Shahrukh Khan) is ordered to pose as a student to protect Sanjana (Amrita Rao), General Amarjeet Bakshi’s daughter from a mysterious bad guy known as Raghavan who wants to derail an exchange of prisoners between Pakistan and India. Ragjavan killed Ram’s soldier father, who on his death bed revealed to Ram that he has a half brother and wants Ram and his other son to scatter his ashes together. Luckily for Ram, his half brother attends the same school as Sanjana and happens to be a best friend of hers. Sanjana, however, has more than brotherly love in mind, and Ram finds good chemistry with his chemistry teacher. Just enough of a little of everything – music, dance, romance, action – for a real good time. (Mary Nyiri)
