The story starts in narrative from the prison. Zaara Haayat khan (preity zinta) travels to india for her grand-mother's ashes. She is in trouble and helped by IAF, Squadron leader Veer Pratap Singh (Shahrukh khan). Veer takes him to his village to stay there for one day. They celebrate Lohri together with Veer's mother Hema Malini and father Amitabh Bachchan. Amitabh tells him to marry this girl. Before he could express his feelings Zaara's fiancee Manoj Bajpai arrives. But when Zaara canot forget Veer, Veer is called by oneof her friends. Raza(manoj) finds it very embarrssing and frames Veer and he is imprsioned.
Story moves 22 years and Veer is imprisoned in Pakistan jail and Saamiya Siddiqui (Rani Mukherjee), a pakistani lawyer, decides to get him freed.
Story unfolding very natural and progressive. The story is so beautiful that any flaw can be easily ignored. Another remarkable performance by SRK, he tries out a new sketch for this love character. Preity plays a convincing role, shedding her bubbly character. Amitabh has very little part to play but leaves his mark with his lovely Punjabi. And this has been role reversal, Rani is bubbly and new and refreshing and does a remarkable job.
The direction is immaculate and shows the movie is made iwth love. The wonderful shayari and dialogue jsut makes it more beautiful. view less
