Kya Yehi Pyaar Hai broaches a subject relatively unknown to Indian audiences. It attempts to put all speculators out of jobs by spelling out unequivocally what pyaar is. But it turns out to be very difficult to explain pyaar all in one go. Instead, the movie breaks it up into bits and invents a number of partial theories. Each of these partial theories describes a certain limited class of observations. Let's pick up a couple of theories most representative of the problem in hand, the Guy Theory and the Gal Theory.

Picture yourself on a train in a station,
With plasticine porters with looking glass ties,
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstyle,
The girl with the kaleidoscope eyes.

Kya yehi pyaar hai? The guy (Rahul, played by Aftab) doesn't like this idea of pyaar because it smacks too much of divine intervention, making its presence felt through interplay of certain evil hormones. So, he propounds his own theory grounded solidly in what are the first traces of logic in the flick. He confides in his doting brother (Dr. Tripathi, played by Jackie) that he cannot possibly find a girl who is gorgeous, intelligent, well educated and down to earth at the same time, and hence he loves her.

The gal (Sandhya, played by Ameesha), much to the agony of the audience, takes nothing less than three hours of reel time (and real time of four loooong years) to come up with her own theory, and this interim period is what the entire movie about. Thankfully, Sandhya's ill-fated mother, who doesn't want her daughter to go through trials and tribulations of being married to a half-human, half-psycho (Raj Patil Raja, played by Ashish Vidyarthi), inspires Sandhya to formulate her own theory.

Her theory breathes in a second spell of logic in the flick, and is simple enough. If you find a guy who loves you for what you are, then just grab him. Look, you need to get a guy sooner or later, then why not sooner?

As one can see, there could have been perfect synergy between the "Guy Theory" and the "Gal Theory"; the only problem was the time offset, and hence the movie. And what a movie! It ties together a string of illogical events with two tenuous strands of counter logic. The only tolerable part of the movie is Ameesha, and that's because all she gets to do is shake, more often than not, a bare leg to some pretty decent tunes. Nothing else is worth a mention.

The flick prompts us to come up with our own theory of what pyaar is. On the slightest whim of your sweetheart, if you can sit through this movie, then you can possibly say, "Haan... maine bhi pyaar kiya". As the only thing more excruciatingly painful than finding out what pyaar is (read "Kya Yehi Pyaar Hai"), is pyaar itself.
