"Veer-Zaara" is an epic love story, one which transcends borders real and imagined, and the message that true, abiding love will eventually overcome all obstacles is powerfully presented here. The story begins in Lahore, Pakistan where an idealistic young female lawyer, Saamiya Siddique (Rani Mukherjee) seeks her late father's blessings (at his grave) as she prepares to take on her first human rights case, that involving the unjust long-term imprisonment of an Indian national, Veer Pratap Singh (played by Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan). Veer was accused over 20 years ago of being an Indian spy, Rathod, and was found guilty and imprisoned ever since.

As Saamiya eventually draws Veer out of his self-imposed silence, she learns about the love story that has inspired this silence - one which takes viewers via flashback to 22 years earlier. Viewers are introduced to a young Pakistani Muslim girl, Zaara (the ever gorgeous, dimpled Preity Zinta) , the only child of a wealthy and influential Pakistani politician, who agrees to take back the ashes of her Punjabi nanny, Bebe, back to Bebe's native Sikritpur in India. Although I did question the credibility of such an important man allowing his only precious daughter to make a solo journey across the border, well, I'm willing to suspend disbelief here.

Zaara does make the trip and along the way, the bus she's traveling on has an accident, and she is rescued by dashing Indian Air Force Pilot, Veer Pratap Singh (SRK). The pair hit it off immediately, and not only does Veer help Zaara fulfill her nanny's last wishes, but also persuades her to visit his native village for one day, so that they may experience the Lodi Festival together.

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 a grand O'Henry-esk love story that is presented on a scale that even O'Henry could not have fathomed. The unrequited lovers willingly give their lives to each other with out knowing what the other has done. The completely unpredictable resolution of the story is sudden and astounding.

Production quality is high with a more real feel than, say Fanaa, as the village dances were less polished with a spontaneous feel even though they were not. Rani is her usual perfect self but the director may have set the threshold of tears a little too low. Sharukh Khan is his usual self, ranging from unusually brilliant to just standard Khan - which is pretty good. Priety Zinta is really fun to watch in every scene. The performance of her sweet and very beautiful servant Shabbo played by Divya Dutta really adds a demension to the film. We loved the village scenes, especially the interactions between Amitabh Bachchan, Hema Malini and others.

We liked the music and dancing better in Fanaa than Veer Zaara but we liked Veer Zaara a little better, overall.

"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.
