This film is based on Arjun (Vivek Oberoi), who strongly believes in arranged marriages. But Diya (Aishwarya), his new acquaintance thinks otherwise. She wants to marry for love.

How these two characters interact, forms the basis of this light hearted and fun loving comedy.

We get to see Arjun living in a perfect world. He loves sports especially car rallies. He's a great guy who also likes playing practical jokes.

Diya on the other hand, is a sensitive girl. Believing in love, she expects to meet that Mr Perfect in Mumbai. She is there to complete her degree course in social work.

Fate brings these two characters together. And so begins the saga of two people whose ways of thinking proves to be a barrier in their friendship.

Will they realise that they love each other or will they stand by their principles? Kyon! Ho Gaya Naa has the answers.

The initial part of the film is full of mischievous moments with fun and games but the latter part is dominated with the relationship between the two main characters.

There are a few moments in the film which really catch you by surprise and leaves a lasting impression on you.

These include director Samir Karnik, making a brief appearance in the film. Then there is Vivek Oberoi imitating the veteran comedian, Mehmood and the entry of Sunil Shetty in one of the scenes.

These moments are sure to be appreciated by the audience.

What appears striking in this film is the musical score. The tunes have sprinkle of country western and rock, making it sound very different from the normal Bollywood music we are accustomed to.

All the song sequences are visually eye catching thanks to the unusual cinematography and choreography. This will act as a plus point for the film.

Vivek Oberoi acts well as the boy in love whilst Aishwarya Rai not only looks beautiful but plays her part effortlessly.

The rest of the cast including Amitabh Bachchan, Om Puri and Rati Agnihotri provide able support to the proceedings.

Kyon! Ho Gaya Naa will definitely entertain you. With the presence of an unusual star combination and great music, this movie is already proving popular with families in the UK.
