Sanjay Leela Bhansali had earlier helmed direction for the film Khamoshi which was a musical hit. After this endeavor and Kareeb, he has directed Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. Let’s see how this movie turns out to be.


Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is the daughter of Vikram Gokhale who is a good singer. She is a pampered girl with some naughtiness and straight-forwardness attached to her temperament. She is firmly of the opinion that she should select her soulmate since she is the one who is going to spend the life with him. And here, Salman arrives as though from the heaven (but here from Italy). He falls for the gorgeous Aishwarya who also gradually accepts his proposal. And there is also Ajay Devgan who is also attracted towards Aishwarya. The parents of Aishwarya accept his proposal and much against the wish of Aishwarya they get her married to him. What happens to Salman? Does he win back his love? Does Aishwarya sink in the sea of brooding or she recovers? Watch the movie to know.

Star Performances

Salman Khan is simply amazing as the playful yet devoted Sameer. Ajay Devgan has underplayed his role with the required sophistication. But the real show stopper is Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who nails it with her powerful performance.


Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam keeps us hooked to the seats most of the time, thanks to the enchanting music, star performances, rich visuals, and the presentation of love. The director has beautifully shown us how love is lost by a beautiful woman and how she handles it with maturity. The movie may resemble the Anil Kapoor starrer Won Saat Din but definitely it has its own share of engrossing moments.

What’s there?

  • The movie is rich in visuals and is a colorful treat.
  • Budapest and the native Rajasthan have been shown in their fullest glory in the film.
  • The music by Ismail Darbar is soul-stirring and glts well with the several moods of the plot.
  • Choreography is excellent especially in the vibrant Do La Re Dola song.

What’s not there?

Some parts could have been trimmed in the second half.


You will give your heart to the film…yes…hum dil de chuke for this film.
