Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya starts off with Muskaan (Kajol) persuading her over-protective brother (Arbaaz Khan) to come to Mumbai and study in college, which he soon agrees to. Once in the city, Muskaan meets a son of a millionaire, Salman Khan, who falls in love with her at first sight. A series of comical events follow, which are a pleasure to watch, especially with the wonderful expressions brought out by Kajol. Soon, elder brother Arbaaz finds out about the love affair which is yet in the budding stages, and forces Kajol to return to village. Of course, Salman pursues his lady-love and ends up being there too. Luck favours him, and with a little help from Dharmendra (Kajol and Arbaaz’s uncle), he manages to stay in their house. The rest of the film deals with Salman and Arbaaz coming to terms and finally the lovebirds getting together.
There are two sub-plots as well; one deals with Salman's father whom Salman has left due to his stepmother, and the second is concerning a few villains who try to take away Dharamji's family land. In spite of all this, love manages to win at last and everyone rejoices.
Kajol, as usual, does an excellent job, looking beautiful throughout the film. Sohail Khan’s directing has definitely improved, along with Arbaaz doing a great job too. Salman's entry is excellent with the introductory piece of "O O Jaane Jaana." This film means a lot to the star cast as this will be an upheaval to their carriers. The effort put forward into the film is clearly reflected, and that further helps this film be a super-hit.
The music in this film is given by Jatin-Lalit, who once again manage to capture the listener after the legendary music in DDLJ and Yes Boss, especially with songs like "Odhli Chunariya" and "O O Jaan-e-jaana.""Odhli Chunariya," sung by Alka and Kumar Sanu made it to the charts first, followed by "O O Jaan-e-jaana" which was sung by Kamal Khan.
There is a qawali called "Teri Jawani Badi Mast Mast Hai," sung by Iqbal and Anupama, which does not seem to be too popular, although it is quite okay too. This is followed by "Oh Baby" which is almost unnoticed. Some feel it will manage to reach the countdowns, thanks to the enthusiastic moods of Kavita Krishnamurthy and Udit.
Next comes "Deewana Main Chala," sung by Udit once again, who really makes it a beautiful score by giving it his best. After this comes a surprise, the return of Anuradha Paudwal in the number, "O Sathiya, O Bailiya" which does not seem to be successful enough to get too much attention. The major drawback in the film is once again the copy of the English number, "I've Been Waiting." It had been a success when first copied by Nadeem-Shravan for Mohabbat, but it is doubted whether the same magic will work this time as well for "Chhad Zid Karna" sung by Anuradha and Udit.
On the whole, the music of this album may as well be rated as 8 out of 10. Excellent job by the musicians and lyricist!
