Trivia

The title track song 'Bachna Ae Haseeno', was sung originally by Kishore Kumar in the film Hum Kisise Kum Naheen (1977)and was filmed on actor Rishi Kapoor. When the idea about using the song 'Bachna Ae Haseeno' from the old movie came, the music duo Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani were excited but they decided not to do a remix version of it. The track was completely re-worked by retaining some of the original vocals of Kishore Kumar on the beginning of the song. And then they got Kishore Kumar's son Sumeet Kumar to sing the rest of the song as a new composition with Vishal Dadlani's rap lyrics. The final product turned out to be unique mix with the legendary singer Kishore Kumar and his son heard in one single track in which the recording is separated by decades and that same song filmed on actor Rishi Kapoor's son Ranbir Kapoor.

Quotes

[first lines]
Raj Sharma: [In Hindi] Love. Affection. Fondness. Passion. Whenever it happens with someone, it changes one's life, the heart starts beating faster and makes you sigh. It gives you sleepless nights, one tends to daydream, it teaches you what it means to love someone. It teaches you how to take those seven steps, which lead to the journey of seven lives. If you're lucky, you find your love, in just one shot. My case is different. I am a killer. I found this love three times.

Definitely not a copy!!!!!
16 August 2008 | by pinkleotardSee all my reviews

I absolutely loved this film. It was extremely entertaining and a lot of fun. I loved Ranbir and Minissha Lamba also did a fantastic job. A lot of people, like the reviewer hottomato , are going out of their way to say that this film is a lift off, almost as if they have a point to prove. First of all, this film couldn't have been ripped off from "Definitely Maybe" that released in the US on Valentine's day this year. Obviously these people don't know how long it takes for a film to be written, produced and released. Let me tell you that it takes longer than 6 months!!!!!!! Secondly - a lot of films have similar elements, especially romcoms. That's the genre. Boy and girl meet, boy loses girl, boy gets girl and lots of stuff happens before, during and after...Like that then, every rom com is a lift off except the first one that was ever made!!!! I would recommend this film to anyone has has ever been in love, had their heart broken, has been dumped or has dumped someone. Go watch it!!!!
