  1. I think this song was a late add, and I know the DVD version didn’t have subtitles. Anyway, I think it adds a lot to the film, especially if you have subtitles. Kareena is straight up singing an old school love poem to Hrithik and vice versa. It gives a depth to all their later interactions.

      • Hadn’t heard that story, but I would have thought it was Soniya. I knew this song and Soniye have different composers, that’s why I know they were the late adds.

        • They were. And I am pretty sure it was to give Kareena time to lose weight. Love the songs, but not sure I am happy about the weight loss thing.

          • It is an interesting conundrum, actors are paid not just for their skill, but also their appearance. And while I like the fact that the women were more real in Hindi films, I also have to admit that a character as body conscious as as Poo, wouldn’t have been plump.

          • I was thinking along the same lines, because Kajol clearly got to look however she wanted to look and that was great. But that was the point of her character, she wasn’t a woman who would futz with her eyebrows, or dress in pastel colors because they were in fashion, or any of that. But Kareena had to wear high fashion and look like someone who would wear high fashion.

            On the flip side, we know what Kareena looked before losing weight and I honestly think she would have been fine:

            Flip flip side, based on that image Kareena only had to lose like 5 pounds, it’s not like Karan sent her to fat camp or something. He just said “for these songs, I want to put you in these really tight small clothes, if I give you a month can you lose 5 pounds?”

  2. The deleted scene Karan had after this was a mirror of the Kajol-SRK wedding, Hrithik and Kareena walking towards each other as we saw flashes of SRKajol and little Kareena arriving in London, finding a house, etc. etc. Crossing all that time and change to come together, and then him saying the little rhyme.

  3. If Shahrukh had married Rani like Amitabh wanted, he would have been the same lonely dictator that Amitabh became, Kajol is so much better for him!

  4. My dad really likes SRK, and liked Hrithik when we saw War together, but I don’t know if I should try to convince him to watch this movie, even though two of his faves are together.

  5. Character reading: Hrithik uses a fake identity partly as part of his Clever Plan, but also because he has a little lonely boy inside that is worried Shahrukh won’t love him any more and he is putting off risking that.

  6. Kajol and Shahrukh are soooooooo cute in bed together. Love the little half kiss, because they still got that spark after 10 years, and also love the grumpy conversation because they still like talking to each other.
