Anjali is a young law student, an orphan who has to give up his studies to engage in a marriage that will not happen eventually, under pressure from Angarchand on the groom's family. Families and Anjali Angarchand are cold for many years. Lakshmidevi, the eldest of the family of Anjali and incidentally the "tribal chief" loses his cool at the news and began to take revenge on the hated family and unfair.
Anjali therefore resumed his studies and has to suffer the humiliation of seeing that all students are informed of this marriage by Jaichan missed. Back home, she expressed her anger at her family and regret being the victim of these old grudges but her grandmother, fine strategist, then submits a plan that would finally find his peace of mind.

Not to be confused with Hulchul , released in 1995, Kajol, Ajay Devgan and also Amrish Puri.
Hulchul is the story of two families: those of Angarchand and Anpara, both of high rank, and which are devoted a fierce hatred to the point of organizing regular raids at each other with dead to the key. Well, well, it does not ring a bell that? Sure hate is maintained from generation to generation. The two youngest: Jai ( Akshaye Khanna ) family of Angarchand and Anjali ( Kareena Kapoor ) family of Anpara will give heart to joy on this university. After several misunderstandings and advice from their relatives, they decide to believe in each other they are in love, hoping to destroy the rival family. Except that if there is one thing with which we must not play, it's love ...
Although we can see in this film a denunciation of the absurd, this comedy / romantic drama leans more towards history and sympathetic light as Priyardarshan realized in the 2000s ( Chup Chup Ke ) than to its more dramatic films 1990s ( Virasat , etc.). So here we are facing two dysfunctional families. That of Angarchand ( Amrish Puri ) first, which excludes women. Now it seems obvious, and some of the protagonists say, there can be no future for this family without women since they are necessary for the creation of offspring. At literally and figuratively so this family is sterile.
The other family has a different operation. Indeed, it is directed by Lakshmidevi (Lakshmi). His name should evoke the richness and abundance, in short positive aspects. Or the character appears as a vengeful goddess blind, almost bloodthirsty (the family of Angarchand). Lakshmidevi has a strong character and in fact it overshadows the men of the house, becoming the female counterpart of Angarchand. If the eyes of Amrish Puri were you ever afraid, know that those of Lakshmi support handily comparison.
Thereupon it is difficult for Anjali, incarnation of the woman, to find its place in this microcosm. It may not look like his grandmother who has a negative role, and therefore, it can not follow the path that the latter has drawn him. However, on the other hand, it can not belong to the Angarchand family that rejects women, and opposes the marriage of his son.
The son of Angarchand also provide an analysis of fraternal relations. These are complex, although quite different activities, son are ready to die for each other (and for the father's wishes). But when the orders differ Angarchand wishes of one of them, it is difficult for others to take advantage. The older brother (played by Jackie Shroff) is what heartbreak. In general, the theme of the weight of family traditions and the difficulty of getting rid worked enough, the message is clear (O Romeo Romeo Why art thou Romeo Deny thy father and refuse thy name; or, if you do not want to swear to love me, and I will not be a Capulet ").
The composition of the actors and actresses sounds right, we feel torn between the acceptance of parental authority can be challenged and their consciences. One thing is certain, hatred makes crazy! However, I hereby issue a doubt about the effectiveness of the scenes of "fighting" to recreate this feeling: a general demonstration of boxing in the market stalls, it goes all along the film, much less.
First observation, so Priyadarshan love the fight and fluff-Snitches raining. The first scene of the film refers to a classic film: The Godfather . Actually we see a man, followed by other villagers, past police officers (who are already looking for pretexts in order not to have to act), to go directly from Angarchand. Here Amrish Puri takes a bit the role of Marlon Brando in to exercise his own justice, and passing over the security forces. His age does not allow him to face alone his opponents he appealed to the family (here in the first sense: his four son).
This results in punches that punctuate the film. Second observation: he also enjoys the antics, so that these two things together become tiresome and lead a few laps to the film. Julie: But the Jai-Anjali couple sloppy for my taste. Pillars of the plot, they form the crux of the story by exceeding their respective upbringings and hatreds to be closer. But none of this spring, so little or so. A song, a melancholy scene and presto! voila. One can certainly criticize it to other films but in this case, it would have been welcome to deepen the subject. Marine: I have found Anjali Jai couple more convincing. Between the game and real love, we feel the slip, it does not happen "like a hair in the soup", even if it was predictable. There really challenged by the two young men and doubts they should sweep before taking a position.
The story of Romeo and Juliet could sink into a melodramatic final with a lot of prayers and tears (for that, see rather Chup Chup Ke ) but the director chose to do in the comic. We did not complain, it's pretty fun to see everyone running. The same we see the use of a "human puppet" and improvised making a swing. All those who are in the vibe raise their hands! That is in any case a large cast together for this film, especially for supporting roles. We find a part in Chup Chup Ke . The actors, on the whole, are good although some may lack conviction.
In the lead role, Akshaye Khanna is quite funny young man discovering what it is that a woman and feelings that go with it (dancing in the shower Kareena is a safe bet). Obviously, it is rapidly evolving and the film marks the actor of his presence. It is very convincing. For its part, Kareena is erased or forgotten in the second part: what a pity the side of supporting roles, Amrish Puri is a reference to play an obtuse and tyrannical patriarch. He played that kind of role so often that it fits like a glove Dilwale Dulhania Le Jalenge, Dhai Akshar Prem Ke, to name a few.
We also find Sunil Shetty who plays Veer, a quasi-regular films Priyadarshan ( Hera Pheri , Chup Chup Ke ). It assumes the role of "the understanding person" of the family of Anjali. This is also the only one with a somewhat clear judgment on the situation of two families "enemy". So Uncle guards his niece and her happiness and explains himself what has always hidden from him about the cause of the rivalry between the two families. Well, he still easily forget this detail when to distribute straight ... hum! this display of testosterone (yes, we like it!).
The duo Suniel Shetty-Kareena Kapoor works well and what is perhaps what gave the idea to the director duo to resume and deepen in Chup Chup Ke in a brother-sister tandem. There was also a person "comprehensive" in the other camp is Paresh Rawal who inherits the role (also seen in Hera Pheri and Chup Chup Ke ).
But unlike Suniel Shetty, his character is in its own interest as he broke the rules of his father. Also note that the hero has a best friend that advises and participates in his adventures: Lucky (played by Arshad Warsi, also seen in this role in Salaam Namaste ). This duo works well also.
In terms of music, nothing transcendent, all is pretty average. But the side clips, some scenes lend themselves to smile. The most interesting of the film is certainly Rafta Rafta . It marks a turning point in the feelings of both protagonists. At first it is a caricature of the romantic videos, whenever they can Akshaye and Kareena are beautiful faces in the back. We also note the lack of synchronization and ridiculous postures. Then, the smiles are sincere and true (without their knowledge). The beginning of the clip, when they "pretend" is quite enjoyable for its unconventional side. The fact of the usual romantic parody clips emphasizes the side "from reality" of these numbers. Even before the middle of the song, we go back.
In Ishq Mein Pyar Mein , Akshaye Khanna is unforgettable as a young man discovering what can be feminine seduction. On the other hand, it is not every day that you continued with a Kareena Kapoor who takes a shower fully dressed (well, the clothes are still light) in a losing bathtub in the middle of a room making part of the high school (at least presumably).
The clip Lu Gayee is sung and danced scene that almost torrid we would call (combined effect of fires, water and night) that indicates that the voltage the film is raised a notch. All is not bad. As for Zara Dekho Dekho , it turns visual delirium dancing in a graveyard and phosphorescent eyes, vampire and carriages. Everything you need to give nightmares to poor Anjali.
Finally, the frame is there, the twists too. Only it seems to lack a little something for Hulchul goes from good entertainment at a very good movie. It is not bad, but it may not be you mark more than that.
