Review

Veer Zaara ...Love stories come and go , films become hits and flops , but eternal love stories and immortal films are what stay alive in the hearts of movie lovers. Veer-Zaara is the majestic tale of two people ,whose love for one another crosses into the realm of inspirational devotion .Veer and Zaara two names detached by the wreaths of religion two entities divided by military and national borders. two forms estranged by miles of expansive distance once soul joined by sacrificial love one existence Veer-Zaara . --ciao.com

Curious, I rushed into a Bollywood DVD rental shop and asked the clerk to recommend a few. She immediately handed me this one. I can see why.

This movie introduces us to Veer, a man imprisoned unjustly in prison for twenty-two years, and Somayya, his young, beautiful lawyer trying to get him out. Veer tells Somayya his story of why he's there. It's long, yet beautiful, touching, poignant, and emotional.

Throughout the film, marvelous song-and-dance numbers are interspersed (My favorite song- "Lado"), making the viewer want to "get theeself to Indian dance lessons."

Lastly, the movie leaves a few lessons on the viewer's mind. The first, what is a border, but a line drawn on a map? The second, what is life without love?

Enjoy!!!

This movie is one of my favorite love stories. Great cast and great acting. Not to mention a great story that goes where you least expect it too. I am so glad that Hollywood didn't touch this one, they would have ruined it. Bollywood sure knows how to do it right.

I sat down to watch this film with rather low expectations. I mean, sure, it was backed up by heavy star power, like the unfailing Shahrukh Khan, and the excellent Amitabh Bachan, but I didn't expect the film itself to be good. However, this was a beautiful masterpiece, and I must say Yash Chopra has pulled off another splendid film! My only two complaints were that the film tended to drag at some parts, and there was one song (but only one) that bored me a little. Overall, it is a nice film, and should be watched if you have the patience and time. The plot was good, and the romance was not overdone (like in many Hindi films). The main theme song is also rather catchy, and you'll find yourself humming it after you've watched the movie. There is no violence in this film, and it's good for the whole family (I mean that)!

"When the right woman comes into a man's life, that's when he becomes complete."

Unfolding slowly with the bright and vibrant colors of an Indian quilt, this rich and moving romantic epic is the more hopeful side of "The English Patient." Whereas that film was haunted by love, Veer Zaara revels in and embraces it. The notion that destiny can sometimes overcome circumstance because, in the end, love really is all, has rarely been so wonderfully presented.

It begins in shadow, however, as a young beautiful Pakistani named Saamiya Siddique (Rani Mukherji) comes to aid a man known only as 786 who has been imprisoned for the past 22 years. Saamiya knows his name was once Veer Pratap Singh (Shahrukh Khan) and when she uses it, the floodgates of memory open and ever so slowly the story of love which brought him there is revealed. It is her belief that once she hears it she can prove his innocence and free him, despite the handicap of gender presented in her country.

Veer is an Indian rescue pilot and Zaara (Preity Zinta) is a young Pakistani girl trying to bring her Bebe's ashes back home to India before she must return and marry Raza. It is an arranged marriage benefitting both their powerful and respected families but one that is draining Zaara's sprit. There is both humor and romance against the colorful backdrop of the two countries, which despite religious differences, director Chopra shows are closely tied together.

His Indian Uncle and Aunt, who have raised him, embrace Zaara as their own, and only when she must return does Veer learn she is bethrothed to another. He only knows he loves her and wants to be the one to marry her, but nothing of her feelings. It is a story of two hearts crossing borders, their love a river deep and flowing.

When my Indian friend brought over an Indian movie for me to watch, I was skeptical. It was a subtitled movie and I thought I wasn't going to understand it. I am now on amazon.com trying to own this movie for my very own and I'm Mexican. I loved the scenery in this movie. It really makes me want to visit. I loved the Loddi song in which you see an older couple in love. I also loved when Zaar can't get Veer out of her mind and she's crying because she's engaged to marry another man. Anyone that's been in love can relate to the all consuming thoughts of your loved one. I'm definitely looking foward to watching it again.

Veer Zaara is my FAVORITE Bollywood movie! Its a touching film about the true meaning of love, and its sacrifices -- whether one is willing to only look out for themselves & their own needs, or be willing to give up what matters most for the best interests of the one they love.

Even though my parents are from India, my brother and I didn't watch many Hindi/Bollywood movies growing up. At home, my family either spoke English or Konkani (an Indo-Aryan language belonging to the Indo-European family of languages spoken on the western coast of India as well as the official language of the state of Goa, and a minority language in the state of Karnataka and northern Kerala) so with the exception of the sporadic Hindi classes we took as children, we did not have much experience with Hindi.

Because we understand very little (just a few random words, phrases, etc.) of Hindi, and subtitles were not available on the VHS tapes, we had to rely on our mom for translation of the dialogue. Though I'm sure she tried her best, what would inevitably happen is that while she was translating one segment of conversation, she would miss the next one, so there would be huge gaps in the translation, and often essential dialogue would deliberately (if she didn't want to translate something, thinking we weren't old enough to hear it) or accidently left out. So we had to figure out the story from the pictures and inconsistent & incomplete translations.

As a result, we didn't watch many Bollywood movies growing up (the only Hindi movies I saw in childhood & adolescence were
