Kajol becomes pregnant and Anil is delighted. Kajol invites Anil and his father to her house for a ceremony commemorating the arrival of the baby. She insults Anil on this occasion by letting everybody know about the agreement. Anil confronts back that he would always love her. The film ends with a happy finish of Anil and Kajol coming together with their baby.
The film has a good script with a different subject. The film is in and out Kajol's film as she is the main character of the film. Kajol once again proves that she is the most talented amongst her contemporaries. Anil has done a decent job though his role is limited as the focus is always on Kajol. The film has some good comedy sequences between Satish Kaushik, Johnny Lever and Rakesh Bedi to make this emotional drama a little light. Anupam Kher is unable to make a mark, could be due to constraints of the character. Shakti Kapoor has been wasted. The direction can be said passable. The film tends to be too melodramatic
at times. The music is nothing great. Apart from the title song the rest of the songs do not make any impact. Overall the movie since it has a different subject can be seen once but does not have repetitive value.
