Plot/Storyline: After Amar Shah's accidental death in India, Canada-based Shah Industries is on the verge of collapse; Pia, Amar's sweetheart, is devastated; Girdhari, Amar's dad, has become numb due to shock; while Amar's sister and grandmother are in mourning and attempt to live day by day. Months after Amar's death, a young man, Shekhar Malhotra, enters the lives of the Shah family, introduces himself, and offers to re-build and restore Shah Industries without any compensation. He is given the chance, and goes about the uphill task of making Shah Industries viable again. Gradually, Shekhar heals the gaping wound left in the Shah family by Amar's death and they come to accept him as one of the family. Also, Shekhar starts to fall for Pia.
Abhi Gyan is a wealthy Canadian industrialist who meets Pia and realizes that she is the right woman for him. Abhi is considering proposing to Pia and help rebuild Shah Industries to its golden past. What he doesn't know is that Pia loves Shekhar. Eventually, a conflict arises between Pia and Shekhar regarding a proposition made by Abhi Gyan to take over Shah Industries. Shekhar realizes that Pia doesn't need his help anymore and decides to go back to India. What follows reveals the secret burden of his past, the struggle between emotions and logic, and why he never confesses his love for Pia.
Personal Review: The movie revolves around the touch of love/emotion. Quite different from usual bollywood films. No flashy song numbers. A must see for a quality movie lover. Soundtracks are quite refreshing.
