Yash Chopra's 2004 megahit Veer-Zaara combines a "feel good" love story and courtroom drama with running commentary on hot issues like the status of women in South Asia, Indian prisoners in Pakistan, and Hindu-Muslim relations. Virtually ignored by Western legal pundits, Veer-Zaara should be required viewing. Even if you are not Shah Rukh Khan, Rani Mukerji or Preity Zinta fan, the film's social and cultural impact commands attention. Veer-Zaara was 2004's top grossing Bollywood film and won Filmfare awards for best film, best lyrics, best story, and best dialog. See filmfareawards.indiatimes.com (announcing 2004 film awards). Its song Main Yahan Hoon ("I am Here") still ranked as a top ten hit as of mid 2005.
I am a 23-year-old doctor girl from Punjab. i bought the music cassette of VEER-ZAARA a week back & what can i say? It's simply mesmerising! i listen to this music daily... i don't know how many times. Sir, u have done a commendable job by presenting before this world the unheard tunes of madan mohan.& equally commendable is the fact that u still rely on the voice of lata mangeshkar. she still is far better than all other young singers around. her voice is simply 'akashvaani'. hoping that this film veer-zaara will be a very good film. wish u all the very best for its success. once again sir, the music of this film touches soul. thanks for providing us this means to forget about the rest of the world for sometime. 2b1af7f3a8
