'Hum Tum' is a romantic comedy, inspired basically by the Hollywood flick 'When Harry met Sally' starring Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan. The story spans 8-10 years in different countries.

Karan Kapoor, a cartoonist by profession, meets Rhea Prakash ( Rani Mukherjee) on a flight to New York. Karan accompanied by his mother Anu Kapoor, a wedding coordinator ( Rati Agnihotri) and friend Mihir Vora ( Jimmy Shergill), gets a seat near Rhea. They start talking and at a stopover at Amsterdam they spend time together and get to know each other better.

Their charade ends badly when Karan kisses her on a friendly basis. She gets offended and slaps him. But that's not the end of the story, they keep bumping into each other now and then. Months later they meet each other again at a New York park. Rhea gets back at Karan by revealing the Amsterdam incident to his girlfriend Shalini ( Shehnaz Treasurywala). Karan and Shalini split up.

The next time they meet in Delhi and the occasion is Rhea's wedding. Karan goes with his coordinator mother to help her out with a wedding and finds that the bride is Rhea. Soon after she goes through personal traumas and the next time when they meet in Paris, she is widowed and single again. They become thick friends through the years and Karan even tries to settle Rhea with his best friend Mihir, but this doesn't work out. They gradually realise they are more than friends...

The first half of the film keeps the interest of the audience with plenty of light moments. The screenplay falters in the second half and the film looses its pace. Even the climax isn't up to the mark. Technically the film is brilliant- shot well with beautiful locales in Amsterdam, New York and Paris. Dialogues are natural and also humorous. The inclusion of animated characters Hum and Tum both Karans creations, who argue constantly about the difference in gender is a novel idea. Music is easy on the ears. The highlight of the film performances of the cast. The director has succeeded in extracting the best from the cast.

Saif performance as Karan is natural and he fits the role perfectly. Though late in getting recognition here's one actor who could go far. Rani too does her role extremely well. The supporting cast including Kiron Kher as Rani's mother and Rati Agnihotri as Saif's mother and Jimmy Shergill as his friend gives adequate support.

The film is worth watching for the beautiful locales, wonderful performances and the humour but one wishes the director has taken care on the script part in the second half as well.
