51. Hum Aapke Hain Koun …! (1994) — Meant to write this a few days back but have really been distracted by sheer tiredness of late. I just go whomp! into bed and don’t know what’s what till early morn and find my light’s still on. So anyway, this Salman Khan-Madhuri Dixit liaison (though in fact, much kudos are due to the ensemble as a whole) is quite the charmer. Apart from the sombre undertones of accidental tragedy, it’s a wonderful way to be entertained for an afternoon. Finally found out where some ‘quoted’ tunes in Karan Johar’s Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham were from. Madhuri in her youthful exuberance is enchanting and she gets the best rooms (cf. Dil Toh Pagal Hai). Salman Khan is free to be the kid he wants to here though I really can’t take him seriously as a romantic hero. Stalwarts of middle-aged roles populate the film too, and one my favourite songs ever “Main Shaayar To Nahin” (“I am not a poet”) makes a kooky, surprisingly well-rendered cameo. Enjoyable bit of shiny Bollywood from 1994 with no bloodshed meted out!
