The journey from engagement to marriage is the most intense period in the life of a couple. Sooraj Barjatya's forthcoming movie Vivah is one such story of a young couple's love after their engagement.

This time around Sooraj R. Barjatya has moved away from his lucky mascot Salman Khan and has rather cast Shahid Kapur as Prem, the film's hero. Amrita Rao is the movie's heroine and Shahid's love interest. Others in the cast include Anupam Kher , Alok Nath , Seema Biswas and Amrita Prakash.




'Vivah' has Shahid playing Prem, an eligible bachelor from Delhi. After repeated persuasion from his father (Anupam Kher), an unwilling Prem goes to Madhupur to see a girl for marriage. The girl is Poonam (Amrita Rao).

"She will come like an inspiration into your life," is the advice of Prem's father. Little does Prem realize then that his father's words will come true!

Prem and Poonam meet. What begins as a formal, awkward conversation between them soon develops into something deeper. As the two spend more time together, love sprouts and a connection is made.

Prem and Poonam come from very distinct backgrounds. Prem is the son of a wealthy father and has lived his life in a city. Poonam, on the other hand, is an orphan raised by her Chacha (Alok Nath) and Chachi (Seema Biswas).

While Poonam's chacha has loved her unconditionally, her chachi has always been jealous of her (Poonam's) beauty and simplicity that makes her more attractive than chachi's own daughter Rajni (Amrita Prakash).

Anyhow, Prem and Poonam get engaged. Thereafter begins the most magical period in their lives, the period from engagement to marriage. Months fly by and their love becomes stronger. But then, on the day of their wedding a tragedy strikes.

What follows is an ultimate test of Prem and Poonam's love.

In many ways 'Vivah' is typical of Barjatya's trademark genre that shows love blossoming against the backdrop of family gatherings, marital preparations and song and dance.

The music of the film (by Ravindra Jain) may not catch the fancy of today's youth as it has simple melodies composed on Indian instruments.

'Vivah' has been shot in Nainital, Lonavla and Delhi. The movie's dialogues are written by Aash Karan Atal, while the screenplay is by Sooraj Barjatya.

'Vivah' is slated to release on November 10.
