This film focuses on Karan Kapoor (Saif Ali Khan) who works for a newspaper company as a cartoonist. Hum and Tum are his characters which are published on a regular basis.

The film opens at Mumbai airport where Karan and Rhea meet for the first time. Their plane is bound for New York.

Whilst Rhea's mother, Parminder (Kirron Kher), is busy praying for their safe air travel, her daughter Rhea is found seated next to Karan.

He is accompanied by his mum Anu (Rati Agnihotri) and best friend Mihir (Jimmy Sergill).

The silence is broken between these two characters when the aircraft takes off. But they soon find out that they have nothing in common - they are total opposites.

During their stopover in Amsterdam, they explore the city and try to discuss their differences.

But just at an importuned moment, Karan innocently kisses Rhea. An angry Rhea responds with a slap. They both part on a very sour note.

Three months later, they once again bump into each other in New York. But this time Karan is with his girlfriend Shalini (Shenaz).

As all three get acquainted, the girls find that they have been going to the same school during their childhood days.

So this prompts Rhea to tell Shalini all about the Amsterdam episode. Unfortunately this tale ends Karan and Shalini's relationship.

Three months down the line, Karan is back in Delhi with his mum. He is asked to help out at a wedding celebration. But he is shocked to find that the bride is none other than Rhea.

As time passes by, Karan once again bumps into Rhea. Much to his dismay he finds that her relationship has been broken.

But as Rhea and Karan continue to meet during various stages of their lives, they gradually become friends.

Karan even tries fixing her up with his best friend, Mihir but as usual nothing works out. Instead, Mihir gets engaged to Karan's friend Diana (Isha Koppikar).

But destiny has other plans for Karan and Rhea.
Hum Tum reveals all.

Director Kunal Kholi is in top form. He has managed to get the very best from his main lead stars.

Technically the film deserves full marks on the movie's presentation. Great music and great cinematography adds value to the film.

Saif Ali Khan is at his best especially in the comedy scenes. Rani Mukerjee appears natural throughout the film. Her acting talents remind one of her performance in Chalte Chalte.

Do watch out for Kiron Kher. Whilst her character in Main Hoon Naa was serious, in Hum Tum she makes us laugh as she tries to use English words in her Punjabi conversation.

Guest appearances by Abhishek Bachchan and Jimmy Sergill will also be appreciated by the audience.

With great performances, wonderful music and simple story makes Hum Tum a excellent family entertainer all round.

With school holidays at the moment, this film will act as a good past time for both the parents and children.

Will definitely do well at the UK box office. After all it's a Yash Raj offering!
