Primarily a love story,chori 2 chupke 2 tackled the issue of surrogate mother – an issue that has been seldom witnessed on the Hindi screen since decades. Also, flashes of Dusri Dulhan cross your mind as you embark on a journey called Chori Chori Chupke Chpke, but this film has its enduring moments – moments that you carry home even after the show has ended.

Actually,Chori Chori Chupke Chupke had no story to talk of, but it's the treatment of this waferthin plot, the characters, the moments, the dialogues, the overall impact that made it so very special.

The film was released way back in 2001 and with this film ,Abbas-Mastan deviated from their thriiller stuff and set the film in a middle class locality of Delhi and garnished it with sequences that are straight out of everyday life. The first half of the enterprise covers all aspects that contribute to the making of a love story – the meeting, the affair, the marriage, the tiffs… In fact, the roller coaster ride in the first half is flawless in terms of writing, execution and interpretation.

There're moments that bring immense joy to the viewer, like the one during the wedding reception [soon after Salman's and Rani's first meeting] or the sequence in the aircraft when Preity meets with Rani for the first time

Likewise, the emotional moments are hard to forget. Sequences like the one when Rani stays in Church, when Salman talks about the moments they've shared with Preity have been handled with elan.

Naturally, if the batsman hits a century in the first innings, the viewer expects an encore in the second innings [post-interval] as well.But the pace drops in the second half. Also, the goings-on tend to get lengthy and cumbersome as you see same ''god bharai'' ,''mehendi '' and stuff, most of which lack ground. Fortunately, the second half has its share of brilliantly executed and emoted sequences that save the film from sinking. Like, for instance, the scene in the platform when Preity and Rani have a tiff, is one of the best sequences of the enterprise.

Ditto for the sequence in the climax, when Preity creates a ruckus having delivered the baby. The sequences manage to pull your heart strings and would prompt the delicate ones to reach for their handkerchief.

The music is a mixed bag – not great, not bad either. Amongst the tracks, 'Dekhne and 'Diwaaana' stand out for their honey-coated tunes, while the balance tracks range from quite good to strictly average. Cinematography is first-rate.

Salman Khan. The name says it all. It goes without saying that the actor carries the film on his firm shoulders and towers above everyone else. He lends dignity to the character and walks away with honours.

Preity deserves full marks for handling the complex role with elegance. She looks the character she is portraying and impresses with a natural performance.She conveys the pain of surrogate mother with complete naturality. Rani supports well.

On the whole, C4 is worth the watch for its brilliant dramatic and confrontation sequences .At the box office ,it was a hit!
