This college romance was more appealing to the younger generation who believed in the strength of love. Amir Khan was a remarkably different from Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak. He was no longer the cute looking guy next door. He was more of a rebel with his characteristic impish grin which stormed the hearts of many. Madhuri Dixit on the other hand made a mark with her defiant attitude and the courtship period was more like "taming of the shrew" episode. It is one of the most loved movies by director Indra Kumar.
