Kyon Hogaya Naa is a love story laced with an impressive star cast including Vivek Oberoi, Ashwariya Rai, Om Puri, Suniel Shetty to Amitabh Bachchan.

Diya (Aishwarya Rai) is a sensitive girl. She has been brought up single-handedly by her father, Mr Malhotra (Tinu Anand), after her mother's demise.

Diya has spent her childhood on the coffee plantation town of Coorg. A committed social worker, she is also involved with a small orphanage run by her father's dearest friend, Raj Chauhan (Amitabh Bachchan).

Part of Diya's course work involves doing research based on the orphanage. So when she arrives in Mumbai (the location of the orphanage) she comes across a carefree, adventurous, fun-loving guy, Arjun (Vivek Oberoi).

Coincidently she stays at Arjun's home since his parents (Om Puri and Rati Agnihotri) happen to be her father's friends.

From then on, this romantic comedy revolves around the fun sequences, the friendship between Diya and Arjun and ultimately their opposing views on love and marriage.

This is what, Kyon Hogaya Naa has in store for the audience.

This 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.

Similarly, 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.

The screenplay appears weak despite the fact that few writers have been involved. One would expect something more special. But this is not the case.

Even though the first half consists of fun-filled sequences, the story appears boring because musical sequences come one after the other without a valid situation.

The intermission comes up with the surprise entrance of Amitabh Bachchan which promises an engrossing second half.

Unfortunately, this is not the case because the story focuses on the orphanage. The scenes revealing the children's routine lives alongside Raj Chauhan (Amitabh Bachchan) do little for the film.

The final reels get more involved as we get to see the entrance of Suniel Shetty. It's then, that Arjun (Vivek Oberoi) changes his attitude towards Diya as he starts to fall in love with her.

The game plan designed by Raj Chauhan will take audiences by surprise.

The cinematography is of a superior quality, showing each frame glimmering with marvellous visual effects.

The musical score from Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy is wonderful. Pyaar Mein So Uljhanain and Aao Naa are the pick of the bunch.

Vivek Oberoi as a lover boy looks good. He proves that he can deliver as both an action and romantic hero.

Aishwarya Rai looks as gorgeous as ever and typically gives her best. Amitabh Bachchan is also excellent.

Tinu Anand is passable while Om Puri excels in his part. Suniel Shetty is adequate whilst Diya Mirza gives her best, even though it's only for the one scene.

On the whole, Kyon Hogaya Naa does not impress. Even an impressive star cast and huge promotion have not been able to strengthen the movie's final value.
