The story begins in a little village of Rajasthan, where a blind girl called Durga (Amisha Patel) lives with her mother (Suhasini Mulay). Durga has a special gift, she makes beautiful clay statues, a skill she learnt from late father. Durga meets the handsome Rohit (Arjun Rampal), who works for a fertilizer company. He is impressed by Durga's art and beauty and they both fall in love with each other.
One day, a village goon named Rana (Parmeet Sethi) takes advantage of Durga's handicap and attempts to rape her. Fortunately Rohit comes in time to save Durga. This makes Rana furious and he threatens to kill Rohit. Later, Rohit takes Durga to an eye hospital, where Dr. R.K. Prasad (Kanwaljeet) performs a surgery on her eyes. The operation proves to be successful, but before the bandage is taken off from Durga's eyes, Rohit goes to arrange for their wedding. On the way, Rana and his friends try to kill Rohit, and in this incident, both Rana and Rohit die.
When Durga learns about Rohit's death, she tries to commit suicide, but is saved by Dr. Prasad. Durga relates her story to Dr. Prasad who now considers her to be his daughter. He goes to Switzerland for work and takes her along for a change. In Switzerland, Durga meets Raj (Bobby Deol), who is a rich man and at their first meeting, Raj falls in love with Durga. Raj tries to get close to Durga but Durga gets annoyed with his behavior.
Then one day, Raj takes Durga to his house and shows her his dear friend, Rohit's photographs. He tells her that even he is suffering the loss of his best friend. Dr. Prasad convinces Durga that Raj is a very good boy and that he wants to get married to her. Durga agrees to marry Raj and so the family prepares for the wedding. Raj and Durga get engaged.
However that is not the happy ending for Raj. He comes to know that his childhood friend, Rohit is still alive. Raj brings Rohit home and introduces him to Durga. Rohit is stunned to see Durga there, but Durga does not recognize him as she has never seen him.
Will Durga know that Rohit is her true love?
Will Raj know that Durga's heart beats for Rohit?
Will Rohit sacrifice his love for his best friend Raj?
The story is as old as the mountains. There is nothing new to offer. A number of sequences catch your attention. Amisha's feelings for Bobby have been depicted convincingly. The re-emergence of Arjun during the engagement ceremony is a highpoint. The sequence thereafter, when Amisha hears Arjun's voice, is again well tackled.
But the climax completely spoils everything. The movie drags towards the end and you wish that the turmoil be over soon. Music is okay. Cinematography [Nirmal Jani] is appealing. Dialogues [Javed Siddiqui] are mediocre.
Performance wise Bobby is good. Arjun is awkward at places but later on does a good job. Amisha over-acts and is quite irritating sometimes. Rest of the cast lend able support. On the whole you could give this one a miss.
