Dil Jo Bhi Kahey is a routine love story crafted purposefully to launch newcomer Karan Sharma , son of the movie's producer, writer and director Romesh Sharma.

Parental opposition, a hackneyed theme in most love stories, is the pivot of this romantic tale. But here the parental opposition is not because of rich-poor difference, or some enmity, but because of different social and cultural backgrounds of the two lead characters.

Sharma takes a calculatedly cautious approach to make a movie that has a little bit of everything - a love story, beautiful locations, a photogenic English heroine ( Annabelle Wallace ), a big star like Amitabh Bachchan , et al. But he doesn't work upon the story and screenplay that well. The result is a skin-deep, ineffectual love story laced with some drama that hardly stirs any emotion.

The film tells the story of Jai (Karan Sharma) who goes to Stockholm, Sweden, to study. There, he meets an English girl, Sophie (Annabelle Wallace). After an initial awkwardness, the two become friends and then lovers.

By the time the two finish their studies, there is only one thing on their mind - to tie the knot. But there is a problem. Sophie's arrogant and resolute father (Malcolm Stoddard) doesn't approve of the relationship. Nor is Jai's orthodox mother Sandhya (Revathy) willing to accept an English girl as her bahu.

Jai's father Shekhar (Amitabh) is a liberal minded person who cares for his son's feelings. He is like a friend and a mentor to Jai.

Things change drastically after Jai's father loses his job and his mother is hospitalized. An emotional Jai decides to call off his relationship with Sophie and agrees to marry another girl (Bhumika Chawla), a doctor, whom Jai's mother approves of.

Whether Jai and Sophie's love story will reach a conclusion or will he marry the doctor, is what the remaining movie is about.

Karan Sharma makes a sincere attempt to act, but he is dogged by his lack of talent. At times he seems comfortable before the camera, and at other times he is visibly conscious. Annabelle Wallace is very photogenic and breezes through her role with relative ease. She shows glimmers of good acting.

Amitabh Bachchan, as usual, is simply unparalleled. In every single scene of his, the superstar fills the screen with energy and enthusiasm. Revathy is adequate playing a nagging but doting mother. Bhumika Chawla leaves an impact in a marginal role. Her performance at the movie's end is particularly commendable.
