Snapshot of the Story
Silsila is a classical romantic story that made the history with love stories and extramarital relationship which created plenty of controversies. Shekhar (Rishi Kapoor) is a squadron leader in Indian Air Force and in love with Shobha (Jaya Bhaduri). Amit (Amitabh Bachchan) is a romantic poet and loves Chandni (Rekha). Silsila is story of love, scarifies and extra marital affairs and released under Yash Chopra studio who created history for generations to come.
Amit (played by Amitabh Bachhan) and Shekhar (played by Rishi Kapoor) both are orphaned at a very young ages, they grew up independent as Shekhar being a squadron leader in IAF and Amit being a struggling writer. Shekhar fallas in love with Shobha and wants to marry her, but story takes an unpredictable twist as Shekhar dies in a plane crash leaving behind a pregnant and helpless Shobha. Now Amit takes the responsibility of his friend and gets married to Shobha and tells Chandni to forget him. Heartbroken Chandni believes that this is in their fate and marries her childhood friend Dr. Anand (Sanjeev Kumar). Even if Amit and Chandni have accepted what is written in their destiny, but they still love each other.
Their love turns to be an extra marital affair and Amit happens to meet Chandni and their romance is rekindled once again. This on screen romantic couple was part of the controversies as there were lots of rumors about their love affair of Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha that gave this movie an extra mileage. This affair was never proven true which gives the impression that the controversies were created to get publicity for this movie.
Story take lots of roller coaster ride and have lots of convolutions before reaching to the climax. Story becomes unpredictable as both Chandni and Amit realize that what they are doing and will lead them nowhere and they should stick to their partners which happens to be the happy ending of the movie.
Excellent performance made it a classical romantic movie to watch, Amitabh Bachchan is exceptional and director Yash Chopra proved again why he is the king of Romance in Bollywood. The pace of the movie was perfect and engages the audience during the movie. Jaya Bachchan touched the audience with her sensitive performance that touches everyone’s heart and Rekha looked very gorgeous. She has very short role and one should give full credit to her mature performance. Sanjeev Kumar was in a simple character and justified his role with some grace. Yash Chopra was excellent with his screenplay and cinematography.
Silsila bags 8.5 out of 10. This classical romantic story deserve this and credit to everyone who is part the bigger crew and worked like a team effort rather than an individual’s effort.

Snapshot of the Story
The movie shows the intricacies of the modern age relationships. It is the story of Trish (Mallika Sherawat) who doesn’t want a commitment, but her parents force her to get married which she avoids by running away on the wedding day and meets a DJ in the party Sid (Rahul Bose). Three years down the line both Trisha and Sid are in a deep relationship, but still not able to make up her mind for a commitment. Their relationship suffers cracks and now Trisha goes back to her old fiancee. The story goes through interesting twist and turns blended with comedy.
Debutant director Saket Choudhary made a good movie that portrays the commitment phobia of the young generation. Trish (Mallika Sherawat) is a young girl and daughter of a retired major from the Indian Army who believe that this is the right time and she should get married to his friend’s son Vivek (Jas Arora) who is a successful business man. Trisha thinks otherwise and not ready for any kind of commitment runs away from home on the wedding day. Sid (Rahul Bose) is a Delhi based youngster living with his mother. He works part-time with his friend as DJ at night club and private parties. Sid and Trisha meet each other when Trisha runs away from her wedding and movie take a jump forwards of three years, now they are dating and in a relationship.
Three years down the line Sid is still struggling to establish himself as a professional DJ and looking for an opportunity, but Trisha is a famous fashion model and looking for a commitment. Trisha proposes Sid, but he is still in two minds and not able to take any decision. Sid finally agrees to marriage as he doesn’t want to lose Trisha, but Trisha’s father comes in their way as he thinks Sid cannot give her a better future and rejects Sid.
Now both of them are single again and Vivek approaches Trisha again and this time she agrees to marry him. On the other hand Sid gets attached towards Tanya (Sophiya Chaudhary) who is a famous pop start. Both Trisha and Sid are busy with their life and trying to get it on the track, but Sid realizes that he is still in love with Trisha and ready for a commitment.
“Pyaar Ke Side Effect” is made for only youth audience and able to entertain them in all possible way, but this seems to be the worst part of the movie. Story of the movie is a fresh experiment on the Bollywood mainstream. Music of Pritam compliments the story very well. Mallika Sherawat looks gorgeous and sensual. Rahul Bose justifies his role as Sid and perfectly represents the current Indian youth of today. This is good romantic/comedy movie to watch.

Snapshot of the story
“Bachna Ae Haseeno” is a story of young guys Raj Sharma (Ranbir Kapoor) who does not believe in true love and flirts with many girls and plays on their emotions. One day he falls in love with a girl, but she later dumps him. Director Siddharth Anand directed his third movie for YashRaj studio worked with a very weak story written by Aditya Chopra.
Raj Sharma (played by Ranbir Kapoor) is a flirt and womanizer who loves to play with women’s feelings and then dumps them thinking he has enough out of the affair. Story goes through his different affairs starting in Europe where he meets Mahi (Minissha Lamba). She believes in true love, Raj impresses her with his poems he has written about his feelings for her and then shares a kiss. But Mahi soon comes to know that Raj is playing games with her.
Now Raj moves to Mumbai and there he gets the job as a game designer in Microsoft. In Mumbai Raj meets Radhika (Bipasha Basu), Raj forms the live-in relationship and keeps promising to get married. Raj gets an offer to move to Sydney for designing a new game and he accepts the proposal thinking that Radhika (Bipasha Basu) is a modern girl who won’t mind a breakup. But it was opposite of Raj’s expectation as Radhika (Bipasha Basu) becomes ready to sacrifice her career and move to Australia with him. Raj tries hard to avoid her, but she disagrees. Raj plays a dirty trick with Radhika (Bipasha Basu) and promise her for marriage and asks her to wait at marriage registrars office on given date, but he never turns up.
In Sydney Raj meets Gayatri (Deepika Padukone), she is a student in a business school and drives a taxi in the night. Gayatri (Deepika Padukone) is an intelligent and independent girl who doesn’t believe in commitment. Raj befriends her and finds himself in love with her. On expressing his feelings he gets rejected by Gayatri (Deepika Padukone) and learns how it feels when someone hurts you. He decides to apologize to both Mahi and Radhika and flies back to India. In the meantime, Gayatri also realizes her love for him and comes to miss him a lot. On returning from India Raj founds his house full of Gayatri’s love letters and spends no time to meet her.
The Story of Bachna Ae Haseeno revolves around Raj and his flamboyance. Romance of Minisha Lamba and Ranbir Kapoor was the best of all as they both looked good onscreen. Sadly the story is quite monotonous and after the first affair it becomes predictable. Director Siddharth Anand tried his best but could not make it a hit mainly due to the weak storyline. Vishal – Shekar created the versatile music by creating the retro version of 70’s “Bachna Ae Haseeno” by Rishi Kapoor.
