              Pooja is an assistant director in an advertising firm. She dreams to be a big director some day. A friend's wedding takes her to Agra where she meets Kabir (Abhishek Bachchan), a local videographer. Kabir is a charming guy and the whole city simply adores him. Totally bewitched by the stunning and sophisticated Pooja, Kabir keeps clicking her pictures. In the midst of the wedding festivities, Pooja too unwittingly encourages him and Kabir is convinced that she's in love with him.. While its love at first sight for Kabir, Pooja on the other side finds her dream boy in the foreign-returned Raj (Sanjay Suri), son of her boss (Kader Khan). 
  From here onwards the usual love triangle set rolling and what unfolds next and ultimately what prevails is something quite easily understood by the poor bollywood audiences who never seem to be tired of the same old stories repeated in every other bollywood movie. Why doesn't our directors experiment with new stories especially when the new generation actors are  around.             
                Abhishek has tried to imitate his father, going all out to woo with the time tested Bachchan image, but looks like he is doing a blunder to catch up with his father who is indeed a legend of our times. Well the bad news is that it would not work and the junior Bachchan better stay off from that route and build another mould for himself . Nevertheless Abhishek Bachchan gets ample scope to display his potential as an actor and he takes full advantage of the opportunity and has put  up  a performance that is better than his debut-making film.

            Keerthi Reddy looks gorgeous, and when it comes to acting she is a complete let down. Keerthi is better off as long as she doesn't open her mouth .

Ismail Darbar's music is pleasing. The film has some good numbers especially the title track and 'Aapka Aana Qayamat'. Cinematography is eye-catching. The locales of Paris are a visual treat. 

Well Abhishek Bachchan fans will have to wait for some more time to see the Rising Son.
