Kuch Kuch Hota Hai"" is not a film with a message. It is pure escapist cinema at its best.
All of the actors are in top form here. Kajol is simply brilliant as the gawky, outspoken tomboy who transforms herself into the demure, sexy siren. Shahrukh's performance is heartbreakingly honest at times, and at times he hams his way through scenes, but isn't that why we love him? It must be noted, however, that the Rukhster and Kajol define chemistry in each movie. and this movie is just another example. Rani Mukherjee has the task of playing the most intelligent, attractive, and confident of the characters, and she does it with the perfection of a pro. All of the supporting cast - including Farida Jalal, Anupam Kher, Himani Shivpuri, Archana Puransingh and Johnny Lever contribute to the film with brief but strong performances. --platform47.com
Ah, guilty pleasuresfilmmaker Karan Johar is the master of them. Kkhh, as it came to be called, was the first of several Johar films.
The film reunited popular onscreen couple Shahrukh Khan and Kajol, who had created a sensation with their previous pairing in 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge' (1995) and later co-starred in two more of Johars films, 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham' (2001) and 'My Name Is Khan' (2010). Kajol's cousin, Rani Mukerjiwho was somewhat new to the industry at the time and later became a big star, often appearing opposite Shahrukh Khanhad a supporting role in Kkhh, along with heavyweight Salman Khan. Johar's directorial debut is the only film he's helmed that's set entirely in India.
The characters are searingly memorable, and Johars signature style is set right from the beginning with a film that swept the major awards and became a cult classic. --platform47.com
