film is very similar to Mujhe Kuch Kehna Hai starring Tusshar
and Kareena. In this film, the boy does not have enough courage
to express his love to his beloved. He only utters his true feelings
towards the end.
the script of Kyon Ho Gaya Naa also reminds you of Sooraj
Bharjatya's family-based, emotional and fun-filled movies, i.e.
Hum Aapke Hai Kaun, Mein Prem Ki Deewani Hoon.
