Kahin Pyaar Na Ho Jaaye is a big disappointment from the word GO.

Well, Director Murali Mohan Rao having tasted some success with his last venture BANDHAN decides to try his luck by repeating the stars Salman and Jackie once again. He also ropes in big names like Rani Mukherjee, Pooja Batra, Mohnish Behl and Kashmira Shah and not to forget Raveena Tandon in a special appearance.

And all for what? To treat us to a lame and ridiculous version of an otherwise delightful romantic Adam Sandler comedy- THE WEDDING SINGER.

Salman plays Prem (oh, not again!) and ofcourse again shirtless in most parts. Oh, there is an excuse for that too..he is a singer you see.
But nowhere as funny as Sandler.
Ok, so Prem is a singer, that is at weddings and privte parties, and resides with his sister Kashmira Shah and bro-in-law Mohnish Behl. However is life gets the "jhatka" when his lady love Nisha (Raveena) walks out on him because she needes money badly to treat her younger bro and so decides to get them by marrying an NRI guy.

Now this is probably one big mistake because the director should have opted to stick to the original plot and kept Nisha's character as someone cold who just walked off due to greed. But by giving Nisha this dimension, the central character of Prem in no manner get any sympathies.

So the broken hearted Prem gets a mender in the form of Priya (Rani Mukherjee). Now only resemblance to Drew Barrymore, the one who played in the original, is probably the weight.

Anyhow, Priya comes down to stay with her cousin Mona (Pooja Batra) who is also Prem's neighbour. And then before you know it love blooms between the two.

Tiger (Jackie Shroff) who happens to be Prem's closest buddy meanwhile falls for Mona. And then the rest is nothing more than the usual masala fare with Nisha coming back, Priya's marriage getting fixed elsewhere and Prem trying to win back his love and blah blah.

The movie is rather dry, the songs put in here and there, especially where you least want it. To top it, the jokes are never that good, the emotion is simply lacking.

And the most important crime committed over here is that inspite of such big cast, none of the characters are well developed and have to be contented with a rather second-string roles.

My suggestion is that it is easily one of the most avoidable movies in recent times and can bother to watch it only if you are one of those people who can't get enough of Salman.

But for the rest, I suggest they go down to their video libraries and watch the original Hollywood flick, THE WEDDING SINGER and you are sure to enjoy that one better!
