Subhash Ghai wanted us to remember this film but he obviously forgot what this pedestrian, too-candy floss, try-hard-to-be-feel-good film's debacle should have taught him: "Never take the audience for granted." Much hyped, the film starring Hrithik Roshan, Kareena Kapoor and Jackie Shroff, marked the start of the low-patch in Ghai's career - something he still can't shake off.
So where did this film go wrong? Definitely not in the star cast: In fact, Jackie won a nomination for the Best Supporting Actor award. Hrithik wasn't at his peak form alright, and Kareena wasn't expected to act. But 'Yaadein' suffered not because of the actors; it failed to take off because it was just too self-indulgent and boring.
