You can’t say that Rani Mukerji and Vivek Oberoi in Saathiya sizzled but surely stirred up some heat on screen in the romantic movie. Vivek Oberoi’s role has a lot to offer in this film with a touch of charm and exuberance. The story is based on a man who goes through quite a lot of hardships to find his lost wife. You will find yourself going along with him searching hospitals and local trains. You will be as desperate as him to find his missing wife. Rani Mukerji also did a splendid job in portraying her character of Suhani Sharma completely different than her counterpart Shalini did in the original Tamil movie Alayipayuthey. Saathiya actually shows the issues probably every married couple in India go through. It gives a closure to the relationship and bonding of the protagonists, way beyond the bubbly first love and how they overcome their problems to reunite in the end.

After having a Yash Raj Films presentation and an A.R. Rahman musical flashing across the screen one can be sure of the soundtracks of the film Saathiya being over the top. And Gulzar has written the lyrics. Do I even need to praise the songs? Rahman had created very soothing and heart-touching numbers and Shaad Ali did the justice by picturizing them beautifully. Sonu Nigam’s syrupy soft vocals did the wonder for the title track. The flute solos during the music intervals are a sure-fire winner, isn’t it? “Aye udi udi” song with catchy lines rendered by Adnan Sami will give you a fresh breath of air with beautiful beats playing in the background. Chupke se is a catchy number with a perfect combination of two opposing melodies that created magic. This mystical mood setting number is undoubtedly one of the best creations of A.R.Rehman.

Chupke se chupke se raat kii chaadar tale
Chaand kii bhii aahat na ho
Baadal ke piichhe chale
Jale katara katara, gale katara katara
Raat bhii na hii le aadhii aadhii
Raat bhii na hii le aadhii aadhii
Chupke se lag jaa gale raat kii chaadar tale

It’s been 15 years since Saathiya and this honest love story still evokes same pure feelings and holds same freshness. 

Mesmerising should come as no surprise when the screenplay is by Mani Ratnam and dialogues by Gulzar and they turned a commonplace concept into a pure gem.   This film delivers a subconscious message saying that one life is too short to tell your loved one that how much they mean to you. With a realistic concept this film will touch every corner of your heart!
