SYNOPSIS - PYAAR TUNE KYA KIYA
("DID YOU LOVE ME?")
- Ria (URMILA MATONDKAR) goes out unexpectedly.
Her father laughs at the idea of getting her married, as her maid suggests.
- Jay (FARDEEN KHAN), a photographer, goes out
on a photo-search (SONG: KU KU KU). He stumbles onto Ria exercising
and is enchanted. Secretly takes photos, though when he asks her to
pose for him, she angrily refuses. She also balks at introducing herself.
- Jay, the flirt of the office, returns in triumph
with photos of Ria, though he does not tell his boss, Wispy, that she
refused to give her permission to use them.
- Ria is in one of her blue moods. She recoils
at her father's suggestion that she think of marriage.
- Wispy's servant, Rampal, poses as an infamous
mobster named Chota Vakil. Demands money on the threat of Wispy's murder.
Tells Wispy to give the money to his friend Rampal. Wispy later confides
his predicament to Rampal and begs him to intervene with Chota Vakil,
whom Rampal clams to know from back home in the village.
- At the party where Wispy unveils his new fashion
magazine, Ria is shocked and her father thrilled to see she is the magazine's
new "face." Meanwhile, Rampal poses as C.V. again, demanding
the boss give him even more money for daring to ask Rampal to bargain
with him. If Wispy doesn't pay the new price, "Chota Vakil"
swears he'll kill him.
- While Ria's dad continues to enthuse about her
modeling career and Jay's immense talent, Rampal sadly informs his employer
that Chota Vakil has raised the price to 50,000 Rs. Meanwhile, Ria is
protesting to Wispy about using the photos that were taken of her without
her permission. Jay promises to soothe Ria's ruffled feathers and win
her permission to run the photos.
- When Ria proves not only hostile but violent
to Jay's overtures, he loses his temper and tells her he doesn't care
who her father is or what she might do to him. He has given her a new
and better identity, and she should be grateful. His quick switch to
humor wins her over. She agrees to pose for him.
- .At the photo session, Jay tells her to drop
the would-be model poses and be just the way she normally is. As the
shoots continue, they grow closer. When she tries to get him to spend
time with her after a shoot, he says he has to go and do other things.
She threatens to kill herself. He tells her to knock it off; she asks
him if he really thinks she wouldn't do it. Seeing the truth in her
eyes, he snatches her away from danger and upbraids her for being an
insane idiot. Later he charms her by telling her how fortunate the man
who weds her will be. She is smitten. (SONG: KAMBAKHT ISHQ)
- Ria's a changed person. Meanwhile, Wispy gives
Rampal the money and a request that he ask C.V. not to call anymore.
- When Ria shows up for a shoot and finds that
Jay is using another model, she's hurt. But he remembers her birthday,
and promises to attend the party her father is throwing for her, so
she cheers up..
- At the party. Jay is late but redeems himself
by giving her a gift which he says is just like her.
- Rampal regretfully tells his boss that his father
is very ill so he must quit his job. The boss offers him a token of
gratitude for his faithful service.
- Ria tells her father that she's met someone.
Her father wants to meet this mysterious man. Ria calls Jay and tells
him that she has to see him. He tells her to come on over to his house.
Ria, excited, prepares to break the news that her father wants to get
to know him (SONG: PYAAR TUNE KYA KIYA).
- Ria arrives at Jay's house - and is greeted
by his wife, Geeta (SONALI KULKARNI).
- Ria meets with Jay and asks him why he never
told her that he was married. He says he is utterly confused why she's
talking about his wife; she tells him she cannot believe that he had
no clue that she was in love with him. Jay, flabbergasted, says he always
looked on her as a friend. So you never loved me? Ria demands. He says
that he loves his wife, but that she is stunningly beautiful and that
any man would want to love her; that he himself never dreamed a woman
like her would want to love someone like him, and that if he weren't
married - but he is, so what's the point?
- Jay tells Geeta of Ria's crush on him. He swears
from now on he'll be super circumpsect around the models, and then,
later, remembers to tell Geeta that he lied to Ria, telling her that
he would have fallen for her if he weren't married. Geeta wants to know
why he lied, and he says that he hopes the lie will bring Ria some comfort.
- Ria is crushed (SONG: ROUNDE). She calls Jay
from the roof of his office, suicidal. He runs to save her, and tells
her she's not thinking clearly; she's a beautiful woman, lots of men
will fall in love with her, and that obviously even he cares a lot to
be there with her. She repeats that, amending it to "You love me
a lot - I'm sorry, I'm sorry." He takes her off the roof and back
to her house. She wants to go with him but he reminds her that his wife
will be worrying about him. This enrages Ria. She storms off.
- Geeta wants Jay to call the police, but he angrily
refuses, saying that will ruin this young girl's life. They fight. Later,
he tells her he has to think on what to do, but he needs her support.
- Jay takes the day off work and he and Geeta
decide to spend it relaxing. On their way out, Ria calls to apologize
and says she'll never do anything like that again. Can they be friends?
He assures her that they'll always be friends. She wonders if htey can
talk now and then. Of course! Right now? He is forced to tell her he
can't talk right now, but he'll give her a call later.
- Ria and Jay's day out (SONG: JAANA).
- Ria calls as soon as Geeta and Jay walk in the
door. She is hysterical and furious that he hasn't called her yet. He
calms her down, but ends up talking into the wee hours of the morning.
Geeta finds him asleep on the couch the next morning and is furious
with Ria. When Ria calls, Geeta refuses to wake Jay up, though Ria protests
that "he said he'd call me this morning." Jay isn't pleased
at his wife's actions, because now, he says, he'll have to pacify Ria
all over again. Geeta furiously rails against the need to pacify her,
and then says she never wants to hear the girl's name again. She sulks,
and Jay begins to search the house for something. She asks him what
he's looking for, and he says he's searching for her voice. She laughs,
and they make up.
- At a party. Rampal shows up dressed to the nines.
He claims that his stingy father finally died, leaving Rampal to inherit
his vast fortune. Once Rampal gets drunk, Wispy coaxes him to admit
the turth, that he was posing as Chota Vakil all along. Meanwhile,
Ria intercepts Jay, and Geeta is not pleased.
- Geeta wants to know if there's something going
on between Jay and Ria. Jay is infuriated by her doubts - if, after
all these years of marriage, one crazy girl can shake her faith in him,
what do they even have together, really? Geeta says she doesn't know
- so why should she stay? Jay tells her not to stay - go ahead and leave!
She does. Ria shows up and throws herself at Jay; as he tries to get
her out, Geeta returns and misconstrues the scene, with disastrous results.
- Jay begs Geeta to trust him, htough he admits
that if he were in her shoes, it would be difficult for him to do so.
He tells her that they'll leave Mumbai and go elsewhere, begin a new
life together away from the psycho. While he consults with the doctor,
Ria shows up to beg Geeta to understand that she and Jay never intended
to hurt her, but that their love was too strong to resist. Geeta refuses
to believe her, coldly informing her that Jay's love is only for his
wife. She tells Ria to get out, and Jay returns in time to second the
- Wispy is shocked at Jay's decision to uproot
and abandon his blossoming career. He tries to change Jay's mind but
Jay is immoveable, and will not explain his reasons.
- Ria calls and begs him to meet her one last
time. She says she did the modelling only for him, and hte least he
can give her is ten minutes out of hte rest of his long life without
her. He reluctantly agrees, Ria's maid overhears and informs her employer
that his daughter is going to meet with Jay. Ria's dad searches for
Jay's address as Jay takes off to his studio (via Ria's house, and,
he hopes, her father) to meet Ria.
- Ria, however, has decided to get rid of what
she considers the real problem.
- Six months later, Ria's father stops by Jay's
house, explaining that his whole life, he has tried to give his daughter
what she asks for on her birthday, but that this birthday, all she will
say is Jay's name. Her dad begs Jay to gift her with his presence, for
no matter how short a time. Jay reluctantly agrees.
