Synopsis by Mark Deming
In this musical drama from India, Annie (Manisha Koirala) had known adversity from the moment she was born. The daughter of a pair of deaf-mutes, Joseph (Nana Patekar) and Flavy (Seema Biswas), Annie dealt with the deaths of both her grandmother and her brother at an early age, and her parents' handicaps force her to gain a certain independence and maturity early in life. As Annie edges into adulthood, she meets Raj (Salman Khan) and discovers they share a love for music. Annie has a fine voice and would like to become a singer, but she's not sure how to explain her career goal to her parents, who have never heard music and will never her sing.
