Kuch Kuch Hota Hai was one of the finest Indian movie made which was very well directed, well scripted and a powerful performance given by Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol and Rani Mukerji. Let us see how it fared at the box office.
Kuch Kuch Hota Hai was directed, scripted and story told by debutant Karan Johar which clashed with Amitabh Bachchan and Govinda starrer Bade Miyan Chota Miyan and directed by David Dhawan. In spite of the big clash, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai took away the box office crown from the comic caper. Karan Johar has chosen the story which was completely different from what we saw on the silver screen.
Karan Johar debuted with direction in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai which was impressive in handling actually many sequences with perfection. The story of friendship-turned-love was equally absorbing with amazing cinematography. Dialogues were fun-loving. Music by the legend Jatin-Lalit was soul- riveting with each and every song which is reminiscenced today.
Performances wise – Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol nailed it with the character of Rahul and Anjali which is even remembered today. They get support from Rani Mukerji, Salman Khan and other actors who brought to justice to the characters they played on screen.
