Silsila Hai Pyar Ka

1999

Is a fair tale romance. A Cinderella type story, yet contemporary. Vanshika Mathur (Karishma Kapoor), an orphan who lives with her aunt (Aruna Irani), is a simple middle class girl desperately in search of a job. Eventually she gets a job with Mr. Sinha (Alok Nath), a very successful businessman. Mr. Sinha is a widower who has a son Abhay (Chandrachur Singh). Abhay has grown up with his maternal uncle Rakesh (Shakti Kapoor), a four time divorcee, whose motto is "Stay unmarried and live the bohemian Lifestyle". Abhay is strongly influenced by his uncle and has grown into a flamboyant, arrogant, spoilt brat who has never put in a day's work at the family business. Mr. Sinha is obviously perturbed to the point of distress by the lifestyle his son leads - partying all night and sleeping through the day. He is determined to get his son back on the right track. In order to get Abhay into the office he entices him with the idea of a young female secretary. He succeeds. Abhay meets Vanshika at the office. He is disgusted. She is frustrated, but hopefully in love. The rest of the film is a roller-coaster ride a clash of the value system of the idealistic Vanshika and the non-existent morals of the wayward Abhay. But there are some unexpected twists, strange encounters (with Jabbar Khagoshi - Danny Denzongpa) and unusual events (courtesy Johnny Lever) on this exciting ride. Will Vanshika win Abhay over? Yet again, will love again triumph against all odds?
