Madhuri Dixit excells as Nisha and completely convinces the audience as the sweet-hearted but mischevious sweetheart of the house. Despite my vigorous efforts, I just couldn't. I have to say that Hum Aapke Hain Koun pull all the pieces of Hindi romance, culture, and song together in this movie. Salman matches her all the way. Madhuri Dixit and Salman Khan were perfect in their roles, and the supporting cast was also fantastic. The film is directed by Sooraj Barjatya, it is his second film after Maine Pyaar Kiya. Salman Khan and Madhuri together are one of the best onscreen couples ever depicted.
Hum Aapke Hain Kaun started it all. I am sure like me, many of my generations who have watched the movie have become an ardent admirer, fan and possibly a devotee of this beauty. Although when compared to English movies it's long and too much detail,this movie happens to be my favorite Hindi movie. And Madhuri Dixit's character is mind-blowing. Prem and Nisha's romance develops slowly and beautifully.
It's about Prem Salman Khan and Nisha's Madhuri Dixit love story. She plays it to perfection. I personally love these non-violent family dramas, I don't think I'll ever get sick of them. A film that broke all the records at the time. The climactic melodrama was unnecessary in my opinion and simply prolonged an already long film. The comedy and friendly interactions between all of them seemed all too common. Some parts of the movie were a bit cheesy in my opinion, but I mean, that was kind of Hollywood's thing back then I suppose, and I do think that the cheesiness of the acting and plot is what accentuates the humor in this film.
In this way, the cool, romantic and charming personality of Rajesh Khanna eclipsed to give way to the new Super Star. All ends happily when Preem and Pooja marry. The romantic interactions between the two seem like something we'd see right in front of us, as if we were apart of the family too. Speaking of which, Salman Khan looked like a wonderful loving uncle; in line to be a great dad. The scenes between Prem and Pooja and Prem and Rajesh show the love between bhabhi and her devar and two brothers.
The leading stars to this day haven't given more likable performances. I don't know if I'll watch it again, but there are several songs that were well worth the watch, and Tuffy was great. The more contemporary films had some elements - this film has it all. Most definitely the film was designed to be big budget block buster, but it was made with the intention of making a great film which it most certainly is. Some of the constant dancing could also have been toned down a bit. It is difficult to point out good or bad points in this particular movie.
In soft whispers, Prem and Nisha commit their love for each other and secretly dream of spending a lifetime together. They plan Nisha to marry Rajesh. I have watched in reverse. Perhaps the only movie which i have seen more than 200 times and whenever i watch my interest to see it doubles and excitement doubles. Have watched the movie more than 100 times and still can't get enough of it. The pathos in each song and chemistry between characters makes people like us want to go out there and dance along. Also, the print from which this was taken from was deteriorated to a certain extent, cutting out many of the ends of some of the scenes between Nisha and Prem The kitchen scene before the engagement, and the pool scene after the ladies function.
Months pass by and Pooja becomes pregnant. And finally, the opening song and the last song where not subtitled in English. I particularly noted the freer movement around his shoulders and wonder if all the bodybuilding since has locked him up there and restricted his range of movement! Want to know what the movie's about? This is Salman Khan's best performance to date. I came to Salman Khan movies this millennium and its interesting to see him younger. It is a piece that informs a lot about Indian customs with quite long scenes laying out cultural practices around weddings and allied rituals. Though without a strong story , it is pure entertainment at its best. If you are not a fan of Salman Khan yet, this movie will make you a fan of him instantly, he is just lovable! Coming to the movie, it doesn't have any story at all but what keeps the audience glued to the movie is its tight screenplay, direction, melodious songs and the strong performances of every actor.
But it is entertaining, catchy and sweet and some numbers such as Didi tera dewar will remain in our memories for ever. It has music that is melodious and just merges with film. Not only could he easily enact the typical Bollywood emotions, but his unique mischievous 'ada' and natural charm went well with his good looks and lean physique buffing up was the worst thing he did to himself. Watch it for the first time and you will be entertained thoroughly for 3 and a half hours. Salman and Madhuri are cute and have just the right kind of tension between them - I especially love the opening credits and their song in it. These are people who put family first and will sacrifice personal desires for family sake.
