This musical love story was projected to be very different and in the end after seeing the movie, its the same old wine in a new bottle. The first half is dull. Except for the locations and the star cast there is hardly anything good about the movie.

Raj Singh Puri (Jackie Shroff), loses his wife Shalini (Rati Agnihotri), in an accident. From being provider of the house, Raj has to single-handedly bring up his three young daughters.

After 24 years in pardes, he heads back home to a farmhouse his wife had lovingly built. His daughters accompany him; but a young entrepreneur who loves and respects him more than his own father, stays back. Not for long, though. 


Ronit (Hrithik Roshan), Raj's neighbour in London, is his best friend. Ronit's uncle (Amrish Puri) is knee-deep into the stock market as well as being an entrepreneur running a host of dotcoms like cdguru.com, shaadi.com, cokemohabbat.com and yaadein.com 

Isha and Ronit start as friends but fall in love after Ronit rescues her from a crocodile-infested island. But Ronit's uncle (Amrish Puri) wants him to marry the daughter of a rich businessman who will help further his financial interests. 

Ronit tells his parents he loves Isha. And the families that were till now friendly become enemies. The rest of the story is about how Isha and Ronit work over this opposition. 

Yaadein is Hrithik's film all the way. He emotes beautifully, dances like a dream and is every woman's dream come true on screen. He exels in a memorable scene in which, he mimics the Hollywood star-Jim Carrey's .Kareena is at her best and has picked up acting with ease and elegance. Jackie shoroff has yet to find a role of his lifetime. As far as the songs,Yaadein Yaad Aati Hain sung by Hariharan is supurb.

The film clearly plays to the NRI gallery with its yuppie look and British accent-laced dialogues.
