Review Film Mohabbatein (2000)
WHICH IS the greater of the two emotions? Fear or love? One way of getting an answer is to spend three hours and forty minutes watching Yash Chopra's ``Mohabbatein'', directed by Aditya Chopra.

The first couple of hours is lost just establishing the characters ... a bit too many, one would think. You have the strict disciplinarian principal of Gurukul, Narayan Shankar (Amitabh Bachchan), who has never heard of something called a smile. Then you have three young `boys' Vicky (Yash Chopra's son, Uday), Sameer (the `Masoom' kid, Jugal Hansraj) and Karan (Jimmy Shergill) who are most often busy pursuing girls rather than studies. The skimpily clad girls include the spoilt brat Ishika (Shilpa Shetty's sibling Shamita), Sanjana (Kim Sharma) and the war widow Kiran (Preethi Jhangiani).

Then of course you have the violin teacher Raj Aryan (Shah Rukh Khan) who is an antithesis of the principal, especially when it comes to rules and regulations and a smile, and Megha (Aishwarya Rai) who keeps fleeting on the screen like some angel. (There are more characters but let them be!) Narayan Shankar believes love leads to pain and therefore weakness, and he hates weakness (a warped sense of logic?). Raj thinks love will conquer all. He fell in love with Shankar's daughter, Megha. But dad said ``no'' and Megha said ``Goodbye'' and jumped to her death! So Raj is in Gurukul to teach Shankar a lesson or two about love and romance! His weapons? The three boys and their love affairs!

To begin with the film is too long. Also the confrontations between Shankar and Raj are always interrupted by the love stories of the teenyboppers. And as is the case most often, logic takes a backseat. Anupam Kher and Archana Puran Singh are supposed to provide some humour but all they manage to do is make you squirm and hold your forehead in pain!

But the redeeming factors are the restrained performances by Amitabh Bachchan (he is the ultimate when it comes to screen presence) and Shah Rukh Khan and some eye-catching cinematography by Manmohan Singh. The music by Jatin-Lalit sounds almost like a medley of ``Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge'' and ``Dil To Pagal Hai.''

All in all, a disappointment from the man who made ``Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge''!
