The film's plot revolves around Amar's (Shah Rukh Khan) intense attraction to Meghna (Manisha Koirala), a mysterious woman who he meets at a railway station and later in a hill station. He falls in love with her, but she rejects and leaves him, although she seems to be interested. Later, Amar agrees to marry his family's choice, Preeti (Preity Zinta), a cheerful and modern woman who loves him. But on the day of his engagement, Meghna shows up at his doorstep, asking for his help.
Amar soon discovers that Meghna is not who she claims to be. She is actually a member of a separatist group that is planning to carry out a suicide bombing in New Delhi. She has come to Amar to use him as a cover and a means of transportation. Amar is shocked and devastated by this revelation, but he still cannot let go of his love for her. He tries to dissuade her from her mission, but she is determined to sacrifice herself for her cause.
The film culminates in a dramatic climax at the Republic Day parade, where Meghna tries to assassinate the president of India with a bomb strapped to her body. Amar chases after her, hoping to stop her and save her life. But he is too late, as Meghna detonates the bomb and kills herself and several others. Amar is severely injured and dies in Preeti's arms, whispering Meghna's name with his last breath.
The film received mixed to positive reviews from critics, who praised its direction, cinematography, music and performances, but criticized its plot and pace. Some critics also found the film's depiction of terrorism and violence controversial and disturbing. The film was also compared to Ratnam's previous films Roja and Bombay, which also dealt with political and social issues in India.
The film was a moderate success at the domestic box office, but a huge hit overseas, especially in the United Kingdom and the United States. It became the first Indian film to enter the top 10 in the UK box office charts and earned rave reviews from international critics. The film also won several awards, including two National Film Awards for Best Cinematography and Best Audiography, six Filmfare Awards for Best Female Debut (Zinta), Best Music Director (Rahman), Best Lyricist (Gulzar), Best Choreography (Farah Khan), Best Cinematography (Santosh Sivan) and Best Audiography (H. Sridhar), and a Netpac Award at the Berlin International Film Festival.
The film is widely regarded as a cult classic and one of the best films of Mani Ratnam and Shah Rukh Khan. It is also considered as one of the finest examples of parallel cinema in Bollywood, which blends art-house sensibilities with mainstream appeal. The film's soundtrack album, composed by A. R. Rahman, is also acclaimed as one of his best works and one of the best-selling albums of all time in India. ec8f644aee
