Storyline

Wealthy Anjali falls in love with poor Dev, both want to get married, but Anjali's family objects and instead get her married to equally wealthy Ram, who lives with his uncaring step-mother and siblings. Anjali finds out that Ram is not respected, but does not care as she does not love him. Ram continues to be affectionate toward her and his family, but Anjali cannot get Dev out of her mind. Then things change, when Ram decides to assert himself and asks his family to leave him and his wife alone. Anjali starts warming up to Ram, when Dev shows up - this Dev is not the poor Dev that Anjali once knew, this Dev is a multi-millionaire, scheming, and devious, and a Dev who will try to win Anjali over by hook or by crook.

Trivia

The basic plot of Dhadkan is similar to that of Swami - the love triangle and the existential crisis of the heroine, the good Samaritan subtly ill-treated by the step-mother and her children, the triumph of the sanctity of marriage. Except it is set in another era, another milieu. See more »

A charming film.
13 June 2003 | by HeragSee all my reviews

I enjoyed the melodious background song (Dhadkan-Dhadkan). I also love the song with the three of them together. I love the classy dance that Mahima Choudhary does. As far as the acting, Akshay Kumar does not have the reserve talent to emote. Shilpa Shetty and Mahima are the talented bunch with Shilpa Shetty being the more talented and versatile. After I saw "Rishtey" which I enjoyed watching her and Anil Kapoor in some good comedy after a long time.She looks absolutely ravishing in the Wedding scene, and the scene itself is very poignant and tastefully done. The movie was enjoyable forgiven the fact that all Hindi Movies are laced with cliches that are patented creations of the Script writers that bring as much twist to a story as a hurricane in Hawai.
