Shah Rukh Khan in an unconventional role                                                                      He isn’t a chocolate hero romancing the   heroine but a simple reporter  who has fallen for the wrong woman. He’s just another middle class man out of his depth in a situation not of his own making and struggling to    keep himself afloat.

SRK-Manisha chemistry                                                                                                                 Mani Ratnam has this ability to draw out the best from his actors and he also know how to elicit passion. Manisha Koirala might be a terrorist in    the film and wary of relationships because of her past but there was    definite attraction shown between the two and Ratnam exploited it to brilliant effect.

Preity Zinta’s spunky debut                                                                                                          You were taken aback and then couldn’t stop grinning when Preity asks SRK, are you a virgin? Our heroines are supposed to be coy on such subjects but Preity was anything but that and stole out hearts through her spirited performance.

AR Rahman’s music                                                                                                                            Be it Chaiyya chaiyya, Jiya jale, Dis se re, E ajnabi or even Satrangi re,  the songs remain rooted to our memory. Lyricist Gulzar’s   imagery found      a perfect match in Rahman’s compositions, making the tunes a layered tapestry full of depth and meaning. We can listen to them on loop the whole day and not get bored.
