Snapshot of the story
Saajan is story of a poet Aman (Sanjay Datt) who is unknown to the world and world knows him by his imaginary name Sagar by which he writes poems. Aman has a best friend called Akash (Salman Khan). Pooja (Madhuri Dixit) is a secret admirer of Sagar and is in love with him. One day Pooja meets Aman who tells her that he knows Sagar and can help her to meet Sagar.
Akash (played by Salman Khan) is a son of a very big businessman living a luxurious life. One day they go to an orphanage where Aman meets Akash one of the handicapped orphans in the orphanage, both of them become friends and Aman insists to his parents to take Akash to their home along with them.
In response to this Aman’s parents agree to adopt Akash. Akash and Aman grow up as brothers with all the things getting equally but the difference between both of them is that Aman is a womanizer wandering around with girls while Akash is a responsible guy who looks after the business of his father and writes poems as a hobby in the name of “Sagar”. When the poetry book of Sagar releases into the market he becomes very popular as the book becomes an instant hit. Pooja (played by Madhuri Dixit) is a book stall owner and a fan of Sagar. Pooja is an excellent dancer and recites Sagar’s poet in her songs during her dance performances.
Aman on his business trip meets Pooja and falls in love with her and realizes that Pooja like Sagar, however he never share his feeling with Pooja. When Akash finally meets Pooja he also falls in love with Pooja and Akash shares his feeling for Pooja with Aman. Aman think that this is the right time to repay what Akash’s parents did for him and introduce Akash as Sagar to Pooja.
Saajan becomes the emotional drama like all love stories in Indian cinema as Akash comes to know that for him Aman has sacrificed his love for Pooja.
Saajan is an emotionally tangled love story of 90’s and reminds us the classical love story Sangam by legendary Raj Kapoor. Sanjay Dutt was outstanding in Saajan so as Madhuri Dixit. For Director Lawrence D’Souza this is the first big hit, with Saajan he shows that he can make very emotional love stories. Duo Nadeem-Shrawan was exceptional with Saajan’s romantic music.
We give Saajan 7 out of 10 for strong story narration, good handling to twist in the story and for Nadeem-Shrawan’s music that topped the charts for a long time.
