What is love?


...Love is life.

Love? What is love?

Where does it happen? Why does it

happen? And how does it happen?

I believe that God predetermined

all our emotional relationships.

But then He left it to us

to find each other.

He made us all couples

and for every one of us...

there is a soulmate.

A soulmate? What nonsense!

I don't believe in all this...

I' m absolutely sure that somewhere,

someone was made for me...

and that someday I shall

certainly meet him.

OK, but will someone

please tell me...

how will I know who was

made for me?

I mean, will she be wandering about

with a placard with my name on it?

When I see her, will there be a clap

of thunder and a flash of lightning?

How will I recognise her?

I don't know what others will do,

but I will recognise him.

He will speak to me, He will

give me a sign...

and my heart will realise

that this is him.

What is all this?

This is love


However far apart they may be...

Their paths will meet,

whatever happens,...

When two people

are made for each other.

Made for each other.

The Heart Is Crazy

Like the heart and its beat-

Made for each other.

Like the eye and its sight -

Made for each other.

Like the monsoon and the rain -

Made for each other.

One lover, one beloved

Made for each other

Made for each other

When God gave them a heart,...

It was one heart in two pieces.

He wrote one name on both,...

He wrote ' Radha' and ' Krishna'.

Now these hearts beat together,

They come together

and they part.

When two people

are made for each other.

I don't know when,

Like a silent thief,...

I don't know when,

like a silent thief...

The first look of love...

Took my heart away

In love's very first game

of hide N seek...

I hid myself in

the shelter of his eyes.

Now I' m frightened...

...because like a silent thief,...

the first look of love...

Took my heart away

My hair disheveled,

I walk like I' m drunk

If anyone sees me

They will ask what's up.

How can I go home like this?

Jimmy, get Rahul.

Rahul's not here.

Go and look for him then!

And fast!

I' ll be right back.

- Shruti, have you seen Rahul?

- No, I haven't.

I don't know when,

like a silent thief...

the first glance of love...

took my heart away.

Rahul! How often have I told you that

I get anxious when you' re late...

Sorry, Nisha, I got this idea

at the last minute...

and I thought that if

I shoot out of the stage...

the audience will freak out

and that's what happened.

What's the fuss all about?

Look here, Rahul,... I' m fed up

with your last minute entries

Hey kid, I' m the director.

I do what I want.

I can change whomever

I like, even you.

Yeah, but you' ll never

get another dancer like me.

If I want I can

get Shruti to dance.

Nisha! Fight with

Rahul later please.

It's time to go on stage.

Take the mike.

I want to thank

you all very much...

for making this dance show

such a big success.

As you all know, this is the

last night of this show.

However, I promise you that

we' ll be back in three months...

with a new story, new songs

and a new name.

Yes, `Maya' is the name

of our new dance show.

Rahul, this new play ' Maya'...

what's it all about? Tell us.

Yes! Tell us about it!


I don't know.


If you didn't know that,

then why did you tell everyone...

that we' ll do a new show

called `Maya'...

and that we' ll do it

in three months?

Now look, even I don't know

who or what Maya is.

But I do know that in three months,

we' ll do a show called `Maya'.

Do you have in mind

a girl who's like Maya?

Right now, Maya is not even

in my perception.

Hey, Nisha! I've got

a girl in mind.

Rahul! aren't you talking

about Pami, the Colonel's daughter?

Rahul, are you in love

with a girl like Maya?

No, I' m not in love with anyone

but lots of girls love me.

But Maya is the kind of girl

that anyone would love.

Maya is the kind of girl for whom

you would leave even Soni.

You'd better watch out

if you cheat on my sister.

Ballu, shut up.

What does she do?

She spins dreams.

Is Maya beautiful?


This Maya must do something...

Maya dances,...

but only for herself.

Excuse me, but she is a feeling,

a fantasy, beautiful,...

and a dancer. But we've got to

find her in three months.

So who is she?

Maya is all these things

and yet she is only Maya.

We've gone around in circles

and we' re back where we started.

Are you trying to

make us look dumb?

I've done chores all my life!

But I' ll decide this today!

Silly girl!

where were you?

- I was outside.

- Now you have to come with me.

I' m tired of the promises

your uncle makes everyday.

So, today we' re going to have a

fight and you have to take my side.

Bravo, bravo! What a performance!


Panditji,... excuse me, Panditji

Go on, Chandni.... er, Shanti

Please allow us to have a teabreak.

Break whatever you want.

Please allow me to have

a word with your students.

By all means.

Watchman! Gardener!

Shankar and Ramu, if you don't mind,

perhaps you'd all get back to work!

Where are you going?

Why are you driving away

my audience?

Please be quiet.

You gather the servants here so they

can't get on with their work!

I have to do it all

by myself.

As of today, no music recitals.

From today...

only you will sing and only

you will listen. No audience.

Even in my own house my songs
