Our Score
Three bachelors on the loose become lovesick swains in debuting director Farhan Akhtar's Bollywood romantic comedy. Despite occasionally allowing the action to lapse into travelogue, Akhtar (son of celebrated lyricist Javed Akhtar) raises a few smiles as he details the travails of the romantically inept Saif Ali Khan, sensitive artist Akshaye Khanna and good-time boy Aamir Khan. But once they fall for Sonali Kulkarni (who has been betrothed to another), Dimple Kapadia (still vulnerable from her broken marriage) and Preity Zinta (who wants more than a fling) the tone becomes decidedly melodramatic.


Three close friends with very different attitudes to life and love set out to enjoy a carefree summer in Mumbai. However, their experiences prove destructive as their bond begins to crumble - thanks, in part, to their various romantic entanglements. Drama, starring Aamir Khan, Akshaye Khanna and Saif Ali Khan.
