Thankfully, Box Office Mania reports that Yash Chopra's pet project (and favourite beside Silsila) - a multiple-award-winning flick - wasn't the epic failure the media turned it to be. Which warms our heart. It remains a cult favourite and classic, and even upon umpteenth viewing, is gleefully charming.
