Shaad Ali (2002)

12A Certificate


Our Score
With composer AR Rahman and lyricist Gulzar collaborating on the score and Shah Rukh Khan lending stellar support, Mani Ratnam's longtime assistant Shaad Ali established his solo credentials with this reworking of his mentor's Tamil hit, Alaipayuthey. Rani Mukerji stars as the dedicated Mumbai medical student whose life is transformed when she falls for fellow commuter Vivek Oberoi. But no sooner are they married than capricious fate tears them apart and a heart-tugging journey begins. This is very much the polished article we've come to expect from producer Yash Chopra, but Ali doesn't yet possess Ratnam's directorial finesse.


An idealistic couple are left desperate when their families decree the relationship must come to an end - and take drastic action, eloping so they can be together. However, the starry-eyed pair discover married life isn't the bed of roses they thought it would be, leaving them facing a difficult choice. Enjoyable romantic musical, starring Rani Mukherjee, Vivek Oberoi and Sandhya Mridul. Shown as part of the Bollywood Firsts season.
