In an age where there are so many movies coming out of Hollywood that glorify our baser instincts, it is wonderful to see a movie like this that celebrates what we can be is we simply choose to be good, kind people. It is ironic that a film that celebrates what Christians would call 'traditional values' should come out of Bollywood.
I cannot give away the plot, but I want to say that SRK really brought his best to this film. If you can watch this film without tears, you have no soul.
There is one minor problem with the DVD itself. The subtitles are about 3-5 seconds late. Otherwise, this is a perfect movie.

The plot is fairly simple. We have a love triangle with a twist. Boy loves girl, girl loves another boy, other boy loves girl. The twist comes when everyone finds out that Aman (Shah Ruhk Kahn) is dying. He has a bad heart. He knows this and pushes Naina away from him and towards her long time friend who has fallen in love with her.
There are several subplots: Naina's family is in financial trouble. Jennifer, (Naina's mom) and her mother in law always fight. There is a family secret that no one knows. There are acutually many subplots so you have to pay attention. American viewers who haven't seen any Hindi films may find it difficult to get used to some things. They use buckets of those glycerin tears which look terrible. This movie is a musical as most Bollywood films are. Some of the artists tend to overact and movements are sometimes over-eggerated and jerky. Hindi films tend to be much longer than american films so be cautioned. By the way, there are about 200 dancers in the film. The musical numbers usually tend to be dance numbers as well. Beware of the subtitles. They move pretty quickly.
There are 6 songs in the film, not a lot for a Bollywood movie. The title song, Kal Ho Naa Ho is the hit song and it's a lovely tune. My other favorite is Maahi Ve. It's the time for Disco, another of the films tunes, is just silly.
As for the film's star, Shah Ruhk Kahn, I don't think he is a particularly great actor but he's got a good screen presence. His looks don't hurt him either. He's very cute. He's also a very capable dancer.
Kal Ho Naa Ho is constructed to be a tear jerker (A Bollywood staple. Most of their films have the same formula). It is and oh so obvious.Read more ›
I don't need to do a plot synopsis past the basics as there are way better on here than mine. Kal ho Naa Ho means you know what you're getting when you open the package. An expiration date in the next three hours. That's all the time you have left to live laugh and love. Twice. Yes I said twice . If you are our heroine you have managed to live with a dearth of it for the past 20 some odd years. If you're SRk you've been making everybody feel the fullness of it for as long as you've been alive. Before you end this movie you will see that you can love again...at the same time.. when three such special actors ,Zinta, Saif ,and Srk are delivering the goods. You'll have to watch to feel the experience.
Indian movies and Bollywood are new and exciting for me because I was born in America, and I only speak one language (English). I have to use captions in English, but I don’t mind at all. I would recommend Kal Ho Naa Ho world-wide, for people everywhere.
