“If a filmmaker can take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions and still allow you to come out of the theater with a positive and subtle message that you can use in everyday life, while at the same time you enjoy the film, hasn’t he achieved his/her goal? In my humble opinion, Yash Raj Films has certainly accomplished that brilliantly with Aaja Nachle!” I CRAVE BOLLYWOOD
