|Love is a mighty strange thing. Mighty because it can make the lovers do the impossible. Strange because sometimes the lover ends up destroying the one he loves. |
This is the theme of Kunal Kohli's movie 'Fanaa', which means 'destroyed in love'.
'Fanaa' stars Aamir Khan and Kajol in the lead roles. Tabu and Kiron Kher have marginal roles in the film, while Lara Dutta makes a cameo appearance.
Others in the cast include Rishi Kapoor , Shiney Ahuja and Gautami Kapoor.
Kajol as Zooni Ali Beg
The movie has Kajol playing a Kashmiri girl named Zooni Ali Beg. She is a beautiful blind girl with a kind heart. Zooni wants to discover and experience life without letting her handicap become a hurdle.
Aamir Khan as Rehan Qadri
Rehan is a local tour guide with a penchant for poetry. A vivacious man who uses his charm to woo girls, Rehan believes in living life to the fullest. He is not like a man who can get tethered to any place or person.
To experience life on her own, Zooni leaves the protective confines of her home and goes out in the world. This is where she meets Rehan, the man who will change her life and will himself be changed in the process.
Rehan is absolutely smitten with Zooni once he gets to know her better. He sees beyond her blindness and looks into her pure soul. He wants Zooni to experience the beauty of this world. He gives her his time, his mind and his heart.
Rehan makes Zooni see places. Being a tour guide himself, he takes her to various spots in Delhi.
Zooni cherishes every moment spent with Rehan. But little does she know that this romantic bliss will soon be shattered.
There are other sides of Rehan which he has never shown to Zooni. He knows telling the truth will take Zooni away from him. But he also fears that her being a part of his life can destroy her.
'Fanaa' is one such tale of love and the unfathomable things love can do to people. It is a tale of love, trust, betrayal and pain. It is a tale in which the protagonists have to make the toughest choice of their lives.
The film marks the return of Kajol to acting in films after a long sabbatical she took following her marriage to actor Ajay Devgan.
This is also the first film to have Aamir and Kajol playing lovers. The two have previously acted in 'Ishq' but they were not cast opposite each other in the film.
'Fanaa' also has a song partly sung by Aamir and Kajol together.
'Fanaa' has been shot in Kashmir, Delhi and Poland. In Delhi, the film has been shot at historical monuments like Red Fort, Jantar Mantar, Qutub Minar, Purana Qila, Lodhi Gardens and other Delhi spots like Chandni Chowk and the Old Delhi Railway Station.
The movie is a Yash Raj banner presentation, produced by Aditya Chopra and directed by Kunal Kohli . The movie has music by Jatin Lalit.
'Fanaa' will hit the theatres on May 26.

|Movie Review : Falls short of expectation (0.5/5)|
Had it not been for the star value, the hype and the acting performances, 'Fanaa' would have fallen flat under the weight of poor writing and mediocre direction by Kunal Kohli. The film eventually stays just a notch above being a mere timepass flick.The movie, so grandly promoted by Yash Raj...
