Kyun! Ho Gaya Na

Arjun (Oberoi) realises he loves Diya (Rai) and must declare his love as she is about to marry Ishaan (Shetty). Is he too late? First time writer-director Karnik blends a Shakespearean twist with shades of a comic Mozart opera into the standard ‘screen love that will not be denied’ formula. With the exception of the irrelevant, self-indulgent Bachchan sub-plot, there is much to enjoy in this romantic comedy, especially real life lovers Oberoi and Rai who bring a certain camp charm to the breezy proceedings. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy’s songs (frustratingly not subtitled) hit the spot especially the tuneful 'Aao Naa' track which makes the Scottish Highlands come alive with the sound of Bollywood.
