Jai (Fardeen Khan) is a fashion photographer, happily married to Geeta (Sonali Kulkarni). He has been assigned to take photographs for the upcoming cover of a lifestyle magazine in Goa. There he meets Ria. He takes photos of her while working out without permission and publishes them in the magazine. The magazine becomes a huge hit because of those pictures. Vispy (Ravi Baswani) the chief editor of the magazine wants Ria to model for their magazine but she refuses because she is angry at Jai for publishing her pictures without asking her. Jai manages to convince her to model for their magazine. Ria begins to fall in love with Jai. Her father is really happy that his daughter is finally in love (he doesn't know its Jai). Ria, calls Jai to talk about their marriage and he invites her home. She goes to his house and gets a shocking surprise when she meets Geeta, Jai's wife. Shaken and completely distraught by the reality, Ria slips into depression after a wild car drive.

Ria eventually confesses her feelings to Jai who gets shocked to hear her story. Unable to control the situation and seeing Ria weeping continuously, Jai tells her that he would have accepted her love happily if not married. Ria leaves Jai in a depressing state. The same night Jai tells Geeta everything which shuns Geeta. Jai vows to stay away from Ria. However, Ria starts to get possessive about Jai and unable to forget him. She makes a suicide attempt, calls him in the middle of the night. Jai has no choice but to save Ria and console her. This troubles Geeta and she threatens Jai to file a police complaint against her. Jai and Geeta mend their relationship and goes out for a hangout while an obsessive Ria keeps thinking about Jai and waits for his phone calls.

At home, Jai and Geeta have a huge argument and Geeta leaves the house in anger. After few minutes while walking on the road, Geeta realizes her mistake and decides to go back but before before her, Ria breaks into the house and starts getting intimate with Jai.

He gets a call from Ria who asks him to meet one last time at the studio for all time's sake. Jai agrees but instead decide to go to meet Mr Jaiswal and tell him all the truth. At Jaiswal's house, Jai calls Geeta and she picks up the phone while someone is knocking at the door. As soon as Geeta opens the door, a sharp knife attacks her and takes her by surprise.

"Kambhkht Ishq" and the title track became a rage among the youth. "Kambhkht Ishq" took its entire musical structure from the Afro Celt Sound System song "Eireann" without any credit to them. For one of the songs "Mujhko Khuda Ne De Diya" Sandeep Chowta reused his own cult hit "Devudu Karunisthadani" from Telugu film Prema Katha.

ReviewsEdit

The film received mixed to positive reviews with Matondkar's performance being praised the most. Taran Adarsh from Bollywood Hungama wrote "the 'actual hero' of the film is definitely Urmila Matondkar, who will walk away with all laurels at the end of the day. Her career-best performance, she oozes intensity, love, hate, relentlessness and obsessive behaviour with perfection. And despite the fact that her character gets nuttier as the movie tags along, it is to Urmila's credit that we are able to feel for her pathetic persona.[8]

Planet Bollywood wrote "Performances by the cast were all first rate. Fardeen does a great job in the film. He has a confident screen presence, and he is overcoming is anglicized accent well. His emotional scenes still need a little work, but otherwise he is very good here. Sonali Kulkarni also does a competent job. Geeta isn't a complex character but she is very insecure, yet understanding. Sonali does a great job in bringing her emotional issues across well on screen and makes Geeta an extremely convincing character. The star of the show is Urmila who is simply mind blowing in this film. The film is sure to get her nominated for best actress or even in some cases best villain. Not only does she look amazing, but she acts so well it will leave you speechless. If you hate everything else in the film, her performance will surely win you over! Her last two scenes in the film are simply breath taking. Ladies and gentlemen stand up and applaud this fantastic performance! [9]

Apunka Choice Wrote "Urmila grooves in perfectly as Riya. She convincingly portrays erratic moods of a person. He bubbly buoyancy will not go unnoticed. Particularly laudable is her depiction of two different shades of a same person. First, as vulnerable as any other girl and later a suicidal, she-of-the-killer-instinct, a la Glen Close in Hollywood hit Fatal Attraction, Urmila gives a power-packed performance." [10]

TriviaEdit

  • For the role of a possessive woman, Urmila insisted to have short hair which the director happily agreed upon.
  • The track of Ravi-Baswani and Rajpal Yadav is said to be inspired from a real incident where a servant threatened his own master to extort money.
  • Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya remains a breakthrough performance in the career of actress Urmila Matondkar. Over the years, the role has gained immense popularity and adulteration. Many actresses like Esha Deol, Amrita Rao etc have said in their interviews that they would have loved to play Urmila's role as it was deemed 'inspirational' from the acting perspective.
  • Actress Jennifer Winget portrayed an obsessed lover in TV series 'Beyhadh' which was based on the lines of Matondkar's character in Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya.
