While she was studying in collage once she comes across a book with some notes written by someone, the minute she reads it she connects to that feeling. She and her friend call up the radio to request a song and when the RJ asks her for her boyfriend name she tells him that she has no boyfriend but would like to dedicate to someone else, and she tells a poem (which she remembers well) written by someone and request for a song.

My Say on the Film – A beautiful love story, brilliant acting, awesome cinematography. My personal favourite song where the music and lyrics are so beautiful and meaningful is “Jaa Sanam Mujhko Hai”
Closing Remarks – Maybe this is what you call as “Blind love”, a story that makes you believe true love do exist. Awesome job by the entire team. It is one of my favourite movies. Like the way the story is built and presented.
