Acting is an empowering factor of Yeh Jo Mohabbat Hai. The flick brings some experienced actors in the same frame with the two dashing debutants. Aditya Samanta makes a mark as an actor in the male lead role of Karan Chaudhary. Viewers get a promising performance through him.

The young and bubbly Nazia Hussain makes a fresh entrance in Bollywood. The audience would love her spontaneous poise and vulnerability as Karishma Rathore. Veteran Farida Jalal makes an elegant appearance in the movie. Mohnish Behl is another powerful component of the acting contingent. His experience lights up some of the frames of Ye Jo Mohabbat Hai. The ravishing Rati Agnihotri, the gorgeous and graceful Anuradha Patel and the very powerful actor Mukesh Tiwari grace the flick with their pleasing performances.

It’s not a kind of story we have never heard or seen Bollywood, but writer Ashim Samanta has definitely tried to add some new flavor and garnishment while preparing and presenting it in his own way.

Music is something that deserves special recommendation about the film. The background score, by Sanjay Chowdhury, and the music by Anu Malik are very enchanting. Mohit Chauhan, Suzanne DMello, Roopkumar Rathod, Shaan, Shreya Ghoshal, Neeraj Shridhar, Anmol Malik, Sonu Nigam, Alisha Chinai sing to songs written by the legendary Anand Bakshi, Faiz Anwar, Kausar Munir & Anu Malik. The songs are situational, without, however, having the potential of becoming blockbuster hits.

There are certain dance numbers to complement the variety of tunes in Yeh Jo Mohabbat Hai. Choreographer Raju Khan makes the young on screen couple move and shake in style.

Director Shree Narayan Singh crafts the film into a beautiful narration where emotions, drama, elating music and passion make a savory blend. It reminds you of the ‘Qayamat se qayamat tak’ days, when love regularly won over family rivalry on the silver screen.
