The story takes place over four days, culminating in the first day of Eid, Musician Ranbir Raj (Ranbir Kapoor) arrives in a strange city with no money and no friends.
He quickly lands a job at the glamorous RK Bar in the middle of the red-light district,and prostitue Gulab (Rani Mukherjee) directs him to a local hotel run by Lilian (Zohra Sehgal), a cranky old Englishwoman who's won over by Raj's playfulness and loving nature.
Soon after, Raj spots a beautiful young woman, Sakina (Sonam Kapoor), crying on a bridge.
Smitten, he gradually draws out her story. Sakina lives with her overprotective grandmother (Begum Para) and an elderly servant, Jumari, and is waiting for the return of a mysterious lover named Imaan (Salman Khan).
It's been a year since they promised to reunite on the bridge, and she's torn between excitement at the thought of his return and the fear that he won't. Sakina welcomes Raj's friendship, but he hopes to make her forget Imaan who probably isn't coming back anyway and return his love.
The film features the traditional musical numbers, romance and humor typical of mainstream Indian films. It is beautifully set, but the story is dull and repetitive. The songs are very well sung and presented.
Sonam's performance is good in parts but uneven in others, Ranbir and his madcap antics are funny at the start but get boring as the movie progesses.
Stars Rani Mukherjee and Salman Khan eclipse them, and with far less screen time. Sanjay Leela Bhansali (Director) fails with this eagerly awaited musical, far cry from the brilliant Black and superhit Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.
