Trying to fit into all moulds, this film can be counted as another endearing Kajol act. The very simple yet, heartwarming story has Kajol playing Maya, an ideal wife and the perfect mom, opposite Arjun Rampal. The supporting role was Kareena Kapoor’s, who Arjun has an affair with in the film. Kajol suffered from cancer and knew she would die, and so she called off the cold war she had with Kareena in the film, and helped her make a place in the hearts of her children, who couldn’t stand their would–be step-mom one bit. A challenging script about this emotional tug-of-war had Kajol at her candid best as far as looks were concerned. She wore simple tops and pants, some traditional wear, and was just a typical housewife in the film. Her understated histrionics won her more laudatory reviews than even Susan Sarandon in the original Hollywood story, Stepmom. Some originality the actress brought, that had everyone wow her work!
