Plot : Nandini (Aishwarya Rai) is the daughter of Pandit Darbar (Vikram Gokhale), renowned proponent of Indian classical music, living in the Rann of Kutch. Nandini has been brought up with more freedom and education than her siblings, as she is the most beloved of Pandit Darbar.

Into this carefree life enters Sameer (Salman Khan), a boy of Indo-Italian parentage who wants to learn Indian classical music from Pandit Darbar. Sameer stays with the Darbar family, and Nandini is asked to vacate her room to give the guest the nicest room in the manor. Nandini takes a dislike to Sameer, and the two keep playing pranks on each other, but soon realise they are in love. Their love blossoms in the Darbar household around weddings, festivals and family get-togethers.

One day the pair are caught rehearsing their wedding vows and dreaming of their future together by Pandit Darbar, who becomes furious with them. He has already planned Nandini’s wedding. Sameer is kicked out of the house and asked never to contact Nandini again. Sameer does not leave India immediately. He stays in town and writes letters to Nandini asking her to join him, but his letters do not reach her in time.

Nandini’s parents have arranged to get her married to Vanraj (Ajay Devgan) — who had fallen in love with Nandini during her cousin’s wedding. On the wedding night, Vanraj realises that Nandini is not herself and tries to ask her why she is not responding to his love. He asks her for the truth, promising he will help her no matter what. Nandini stays quiet but is later caught reading Sameer’s letters. Vanraj is very angry at first as all he had asked was the truth from her.

When he realises that his wife is in love with another man, he shows the ultimate love by taking Nandini to Italy and help her search for Sameer, to the initial dislike–but eventual approval–of his own parents.

Nandini and Vanraj arrive in Italy and start searching for Sameer but always come up against dead ends. During their search, they face many problems and dilemmas and slowly Nandini gets to see what Vanraj really is like. She sees Vanraj selflessly devoting himself to caring for her during her stay in hospital after an incident.

Eventually they get news about Sameer through his mother (played by Helen), and Vanraj arranges for Nandini to meet Sameer on the night of his debut concert. His job done, Vanraj says goodbye to Nandini and walks away. Nandini and Sameer meet, but the matured Nandini’s feelings for him have changed. She reflects on the unwavering love and devotion that Vanraj showed her throughout their whole relationship, and realises that Vanraj was her true soul mate. She leaves Sameer and catches up with Vanraj.

Aankhon Ki Gustakhiyan Hindi Lyrics & English Translation

Aankhon ki gustaakhiyaan maaf hon…
May the impertinence of my eyes be forgiven…

ek tuk tumhein dekhti hain
They look at you just a little;

jo baat kahana chaahe zubaan tum se yeh vo kahati hain
and what my tongue longs to speak, that is what they tell you.

aankhon ki sharmo haya maaf hon
May the bashfulness of my eyes be forgiven.

tumhein dekhke jhukti hain
My eyes fall away from yours;

uthi aankhein jo baat na kah saki jhuki aankhein voh kahti hain
what my eyes couldn’t say while looking into yours, that lowered gaze says for me.

aankhon ki gustaakhiyaan maaf hon
May the impertinence of my eyes be forgiven…

kaajal ka ek til tumhaare labon pe laga duun
I’ll plant a speck of kohl on your lips.

haan chanda aur suuraj ki nazaron se tumko bacha luun
Yes, I’ll spare you the invasive inspection of the sun and the moon.

palkon ki chilman mein aao main tumko chhupa luun
Step behind the fringe of my eyelashes; I’ll hide you there.

khayaalon ki ye shokhiyaan maaf hon
May these mischievous thoughts be forgiven.

har dam tumhein sochti hain jab hosh mein hota hai jahaan
With every breath (my eyes) think of you, and though the whole world is in its senses,

madhosh ye karti hain
(your eyes) rob me of mine.

aankhon ki sharmo haya maaf hon
May the bashfulness of my eyes be forgiven.

yeh zindagi aapki hi amaanat rahegi
This life (of mine) will always be entrusted to you.

dil mein sada aapki hi muhabbat rahegi
Love for you will always reside in my heart.

in saanson ko aapki hi zaruurat rahegi
Even just to breathe, I will always have need for you.

is dil ki naadaaniyaan maaf hon
May the foolishness of my heart be forgiven.

ye meri kaha sunti hain
(Your eyes) listen to my words;

ye pal pal jo hoti hain bekal sanam to sapne naye bunti hain
(these eyes) which are always restless with desire, they weave new dreams.

aankhon ki…
May the…

gustaakhiyaan maaf ho
impertinence of my eyes be forgiven.

sharmo haya maaf hon
bashfulness of my eyes be forgiven.
