Sirf Tum revolves around Deepak, an ordinary young man with a big heart, and Aarthi, an attractive, middle class girl. While in Dehli, Deepak finds a lost handbag belonging to Aarthi. Returning it to her, Deepak begins writing her on a regular basis. Eventually, the two fall in love. While exchanging letters, the two meet each other at random times but both have no idea who the other is. The necessary plot twist comes in the way of Neha, Deepak's boss, who falls in love with him and tries to woo him. The rest of the movie concentrates on whether Deepak rejects the advances of Neha and meets Aarthi. Written by Sujit R. Varma

User Reviews

Film has it all -- story, acting, music, locations.

If you liked "You've got mail," you'll love Sirf Tum. The plot is very similar except it uses snail mail. I liked Sirf Tum, a story of two people who fall in love through the mail, much better because it is beautifully photographed, has great songs and dances, uses various parts of India (especially Southern India)to great advantage, and the acting, even from Johnny Lever, is top notch all the way. A little bit of Johnny Lever can go a a long way but he was only in the 1st half and was even fun to watch. The two leads, Sanjay Kapoor and Priya Gill, are fascinating in every frame. They are ably supported by everyone else in the cast.
