The exclusive feature of Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham:

KABHI KHUSHI KABHIE GHAM, directed by Karan Johar, is undoubtedly the most-awaited film of the year. And if the songs are an indicator of things to follow, the Johars have another hit on their hands. This writer was part of the distinguished gathering that was specially invited by Karan Johar and Sony Music for an exclusive screening of the film’s songs. The music will be released on October 16. THE SONGS: The film has ten songs (that includes the sad versions of the title song, besides the ‘Soul Of K3G’) and it’s indeed difficult to choose which one is one-up on the other. But the number that is sure to catch the fancy of cinegoers is ‘Bole Chudiyan’, picturised on the six stars of the film Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor. ‘Suraj Hua Maddham’, picturised on SRK and Kajol in Egypt, has brilliant visual appeal, while ‘You Are My Sonia’ (Hrithik, Kareena) has excellent choreography (Farah Khan). ‘Shava Shava’ (Amitabh, SRK and Rani Mukherji) is lavish in picturisation, although the tune is similar to ‘Sona Sona’ from MAJOR SAAB. AN INSIGHT INTO THIS MULTI-STARRER: Yashovardhan Raichand (Amitabh Bachchan) and his wife Nandini (Jaya Bachchan) have raised their sons Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan) and Rohan (Hrithik Roshan) showering them with love and affection. Yash has tried to pass on to his sons the values, the heritage and the rich traditions of his family, which he cherishes and holds in great regard. On the other hand, Nandini has different dreams and aspirations for her two sons. But she shares a special bond with Rahul, the eldest son, who’s an adopted child. Rahul’s adoption has always been kept a secret. But ever since Rahul himself found that out at the tender age of 8 years, it has been the reason for his unending devotion and gratitude for his parents especially his father. His father’s every word, every wish becomes an unwritten commandment for him. One that he would never break, but unfortunately he does. Because Rahul falls in love! Rahul falls in love with Anjali (Kajol), a bubbly girl from Delhi’s Chandni Chowk, who dotes on her younger sister Pooja (Kareena Kapoor) and cares madly about her ailing father Bauji (Anupam Kher). A simple girl who Rahul marries and brings home. A girl that makes a proud stubborn man forget that he is a father and reminds a son that he is adopted. Rahul decides to leave the mother who taught and encouraged him to fall in love and whose every waking moment henceforth will be spent waiting eagerly for her elder son to return home. But Rohan makes a promise to re-unite the family. PROFILES: Amitabh Bachchan plays Yashovardhan Raichand, the patriarch of an affluent industrial family with fixed notions about preserving family traditions. He is adamant about the path he chooses for his children and cannot tolerate any deviations in that regard. His rigidity forms the crux of the conflict in the film and throws his close-knit family apart. Jaya Bachchan plays Nandini Raichand, the strong but submissive wife of Yashovardhan, who dotes on her sons and wants them to follow their hearts. She is torn between her special bond with her son Rahul and her undying loyalty to her husband. At the risk of losing her son, she supports Yash unflinchingly in all his decisions. Till one fine day, the dam bursts. Shah Rukh Khan plays Rahul, the adopted son of the Raichands, who places the respect for his father above everything else at all times, except when he falls in love. He is hurt and disillusioned when his idol, his father, shuns him in favour of his rigidity. He moves away from the family in order to keep his word to his beloved. Kajol is Anjali Sharma, a talkative middle class shop owner from Chandni Chowk, whose entry into the Raichand fold is the cause of the feud that shatters the Raichand family. She supports Rahul in trying times but always misses the parental warmth that would exist if she was accepted and blessed by her in-laws. Hrithik Roshan plays Rohan, the modern and stylish younger scion of the Raichand family, who takes on the mission of bringing the splintered family together. He is ready to bear the brunt of his father’s rage just so that he can reunite his family and bring back the smile on his mother’s face. Kareena Kapoor is Pooja a.k.a. Poo, an incurable fashion addict whose vanity is only sidelined by her sensitivity when she supports Rohan’s mission in bringing the Raichand family together again.
