Maine Dil Tujhko Diya is the story of romance between a simple, down-to-earth guy Ajay (Sohail Khan) and a beautiful, vulnerable girl Ayesha (Sameera Reddy).

The Story

Ayesha is the elder daughter of a rich business tycoon Mr. Verma (Kabir Bedi), an overprotective father who has kept his two daughters away from the influences of modern world.

Ayesha goes to study in college for her graduation and comes in contact with Ajay who is the leader of a group called Aryans, responsible for handling the security in college. Ajay’s soft-spoken nature and his humble, down-to-earth attitude soon makes Ayesha his ardent admirer. Ajay also helps Ayesha find her identity besides being just her father’s daughter.

Ajay and Ayesha’s friendship becomes an eyesore for Mr. Chopra (Dilip Tahil), business partner of Ayesha’s father. Chopra is a cunning man who harbors the dream of lapping all of Verma’s fortunes by marrying his son to Ayesha.

Chopra begins belittling Ajay in Verma’s eyes. He also hires the Mumbai’s don Bhaijaan (Sanjay Dutt) to get rid of Ajay. Luckily Ajay escapes Bhaijaan’s clutches as it is the month of Ramazaan, and Bhaijaan, being a religious man, wont hurt a soul in this pious month.

Still, Chopra succeeds in his nefarious plans and gets Ajay beaten and thrown out of the city. In turn Ajay vows that he will marry Ayesha within 24 hours.


Written and directed by Sohail Khan, Maine Dil Tujhko Diya has the technical finesse and an overdose of stylishly pictured action sequences featuring Sohail. Yet the film ends up as a low-key fare due to the absence of an interesting storyline.

Based on the oft-repeated story of two lovers rebelling against the parental opposition, the film is a mish mash of several Bollywood hits. The script is riddled with mushy dialogues that completely lose their significance due to repeated use.


As newcomers, Sohail Khan and Sameera Reddy have managed to pack in some performances...(they weren't that bad!!!). Sohail's toned up body looked great much like his elder brother(Sallu), and Sameera also looked pretty and had nicely fit into the role of a daughter of a business tycoon.

Sanjay Dutt stood out amongst the youngsters with his performance.

Maine Dil Tujhko Diya is worth a watch chiefly because of its glossy look and the presence of fresh faces. To boot is Sanjay Dutt’s riveting portrayal of underworld gangster Bhaijaan, a performance that stands out among the performances by the leading starcast.
