Synopsis by Mark Deming
A woman must fight for justice as she battles a deadly disease in this Bollywood drama, one of the first films from India to deal with the controversial subject of AIDS. Tamanna Sahani (Shilpa Shetty) is a rising executive at an advertising agency who has been an aggressive go-getter ever since the death of her parents left her to fend for herself and her younger sister, Tanya, who has begun to make a name for herself as a radio announcer. Tamanna attends her high-school reunion and sees Rohit Manchanda (Salman Khan) for the first time in years; Rohit is a handsome but humble musician whom Tamanna carried a torch for back in the day, and she soon discovers her feelings haven't dimmed with time. Caught up in the moment, Rohit and Tamanna spend the night making love, but must part in the morning with a promise to meet again soon. In time Tamanna discovers Rohit was carrying a terrible secret -- he is HIV-positive, and she learns she is now carrying the AIDS virus as well. When her employers learn of her condition, Tamanna is fired despite her sterling work record, and Tarun Anand (Abhishek Bachchan), a respected lawyer with a history of taking on socially responsible cases, represents Tamanna in court as she fights for her right to work. Tamanna also tries to track down Rohit, only to discover the fates have not been kind to him. Phir Milenge was directed by actress turned moviemaker Revathy, who persuaded her friend Salman Khan to take the role of Rohit after a number of leading Indian stars turned it down, fearing the possible stigma of playing a man with AIDS.
