Phir Milenge

Thursday, January 1, 1970 • Hindi Comments

It's the story of Rohit Manchanda (Salman Khan), Tamanna Sahani (Shilpa Shetty) and Tarun Anand (Abhishek Bachchan).

A musician by profession, Rohit is extremely popular with his students. But at his heart, he is a loner and works in complete solitude.

Tamanna is a go-getter. A self-made woman, she enthuses vivacity wherever she goes, be it her ad agency or her home. Having lost her parents at a tender age she has been the father and mother to her younger sister, Tanya, a radio jockey.

Tarun is an upcoming lawyer, a charmer and a scrupulous gentleman, who never shies away from rectifying his shortcomings. That sometimes makes him a highly volatile person and at the same time a winner, who's always striving for more.

Riding high on success, Tamanna happens to meet Rohit at their school reunion. The mere sight of him makes her nostalgic about her school days when she used to swoon over him. The two decide to catch up on life and love blooms in no time.

Then comes the twist in the fairy tale. Tamanna is embroiled in a difficult situation with no one to help her, not even Rohit. All her efforts to get in touch with him prove fruitless and she even loses her job in the process.

That's when Tarun comes into her life and assures her of a fight against injustice. What will happen to Tamanna? Will she be able to forgive Rohit? Will her life ever get back on course?

This is the first time Shilpa Shetty adorns a makeup-less look. Also, don't forget to take those tissue papers along with you while you watch this film.

It might hurt his fans to see Salman's character suffering from AIDS.

This will be the first mainstream Hindi film to tackle the sensitive issue of AIDS. Mahesh Manjrekar's "Nidaan" and Rituparno Ghosh's "Ashukh" have dealt with the subject but they failed to make an impact since the films were not promoted well at the national level.

Film insiders say the character of an AIDS patient had no takers when Revathi first came up with the idea. Salman stepped in for old times' sake, having acted in the Hindi film "Love" with her more than a decade ago.

Revathi herself admits it was difficult to find an actor for Salman's role, with several turning it down, mostly because of the social stigma attached to the disease.

The film, made at a cost of Rs.40 million, will hit the theatres across the country June 25.

Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy has composed the music for the film and Prasoon Joshi has penned the lyrics.
