PlotEdit

Sanjana (Kareena Kapoor) is a young woman, full of life. She has just graduated from college and is not happy about the concept of arranged marriage, much to the dismay of her mother Susheela (Himani Shivpuri).

Roopa -Sanjana's older sister- who has settled in the U.S., phones her parents to inform them that her friend, Prem, has seen Sanjana's picture and is interested in getting to know her. Prem is a wealthy businessman who has also settled in the U.S. with his parents. Sanjana is not pleased with this development but she eventually meets Prem Kishen (Hrithik Roshan).

At first, Sanjana can't stand the enthusiastic and outgoing Prem, and plays a series of pranks on him. As they begin to spend more time together, they eventually fall in love, (much to the delight of her parents), who also love Prem. He returns to the U.S. for his job and promises to return. However, Roopa informs the family that Prem could not make it, so someone else is sent in his place.

Sanjana's confused parents find out there was a mix-up. The man who arrived was not the wealthy N.R.I. Prem Kumar, whom Sanjana was meant to meet. Instead, he is Prem Kishen, an employee in Prem Kumar's company.

Prem Kumar (Abhishek Bachchan) meets Sanjana and begins to have feelings for her. Sanjana's mother slowly tries to push her towards Prem Kumar, though her father (Pankaj Kapur) has reservations because he knows how much Sanjana and Prem Kishan are in love.

Prem Kumar and Sanjana begin spending time together and become friends due to their common interests, but Sanjana remains committed to Prem Kishen. Prem Kishan returns to Sanjana's house, where he is treated coldly by her mother and witnesses Prem Kumar's feelings for Sanjana. He reveals the truth to her – that his boss was supposed to marry her and not him. Sanjana is devastated.

A marriage is arranged for Sanjana and Prem Kumar by their respective mothers. Prem Kishen's loyalty to his boss and his boss' happiness forces him to leave, while a heartbroken Sanjana agrees only for the sake of her parents. Eventually, Prem Kumar learns the truth and unites Sanjana with Prem Kishen.
