Sohail Khan’s Maine Dil Tujhko Diya has nothing to tell new for the hindi cinema viewers

Its rehash of numerous old movies with the central theme of the story being based around two lovers facing family opposition.

The Plot

Mr. Verma (Kabir Bedi) is a tycoon, who has single-handedly brought up his two daughters with utmost care and protection. Though his love towards both remains undivided, he is overprotective of his elder daughter Ayesha (Sameera Reddy) due to her shy nature.

Ayesha is exposed to the fast-paced Mumbai life on her first day of college where she meets Ajay (Sohail Khan). Ajay and Ayesha are drawn to each other, but their fondness for each other comes under the watchful eye of Chopra (Dalip Tahil), a conniving business associate of Verma, who wants his son to marry Ayesha.

Chopra takes no time in cautioning Verma and paints a poor and negative picture of Ajay. Verma gets convinced further when, at a function, he unknowingly gets into an altercation with Ajay, with both being unaware of each other's identity.

Meanwhile, without Verma's knowledge, Chopra calls upon the widely notorious Bhaijaan (Sanjay Dutt) to rough Ajay up and thereby warn him to keep away from Ayesha. Bhaijaan, who is given a wrong impression of Ajay, heads to the college but is mistakenly hit by Ajay.

This angers Bhaijaan but due to the commencement of Ramzan month, he is unable to retaliate. Now Bhaijaan takes the task of setting Ajay straight upon himself, but can do so only after Chand Mubarak, which marks the end of the Ramzan period.

Not wanting to waste more time, Chopra instigates Bhaijaan's ambitious henchmen Chotte (Sarfaraz Khan) and Munna (Rajpal Yadav) to take immediate action, promising the former enormous wealth which would help in realizing his secret desire to overthrow Bhaijaan.

As a result, without Bhaijaan's knowledge, Ajay is mercilessly and brutally roughed up and thrown out of the city limits, warned to stay away from Verma's daughter. With the strong belief that Verma is instrumental in getting him beaten up, Ajay challenges Verma that he will get married to Ayesha in 24 hours.

Verma gets taken aback and promises that he will use all his power, even at the cost of losing his empire, to prevent Ajay from even coming close to his daughter. Also, he decides to get his daughter married within the next 24 hours to Chopra's son.

Technical Aspects

The weak screenplay of this film written by Sohail himself combined with a boring storyline is the biggest drawback of MDTD. Technically, it’s a well-made film

The action scenes (Amin Gani) are brilliant and will be loved by the viewers. Daboo Malik's music is a major asset. The love story is complimented by a lilting score and at least three numbers can be singled out – the title track, 'Kuch Bhi Nahin Kuch Nahin Hai' and 'Thoda Sa Pyar Hua Hain'. The picturisation of the latter is spellbinding.

The Cast

Performance wise, the film belongs to Sohail Khan who is cute despite terrible dialogue delivery. Given a better role, he is sure to come out with flying colours. He looks good, dances well and has a great physique. Sameera Reddy needs to loosen up and act normally, as she is stiff.

Sameera Reddy is plain mediocre. She needs to polish her acting skills, work on her facial expressions and improve diction. Sanjay Dutt excels in a role that comes to life with his presence. The audience is bound to cheer every time he appears. Sanjay Dutt’s role is tailor-made for the macho actor is sure to win him accolades galore. He is very effective.

Kabir Bedi is adequate. Dalip Tahil is as usual. Neeraj Vora, Rajpal Yadav, Raja and Sarfaraz Khan enact their parts well.

The rest of the cast is average.


On the whole, MAINE DIL TUJHKO DIYA has an oft-repeated storyline as its biggest drawback, but wonderful music, vibrant action may make it an average film.
