RHTDM may be getting a sequel
Nearly two decades ago, a young girl with her inside out beauty, and a boy with his innocent boy-next-door romantic portrayal, charmed their way into your hearts in Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein (2001) or popularly known as RHTDM (read rhythm).
Together, their love story made sure that the audiences don't get over romanticism and they led us to believe that true love ultimately finds its way. We’re sure you know who they are! They’re none other than Dia Mirza, Miss Asia Pacific 2000, and heartthrob R. Madhavan. Right from their on-screen chemistry to the songs and the story, fans loved every bit of the film. Even 19 years later, the song Zara Zara will transport you to the very-much-in-love Dia Mirza dancing in the meadows and orchids.
Speaking of 19 years later, Bollywood fans, we've got some good news for you. Rumors are doing rounds that the RHTDM movie is all set to finally get a sequel. Now, actors R Madhavan and Dia Mirza may reunite once again to reprise their roles as the much-loved Maddy and Reena for the sequel of their 2001 film. This might just be the news you needed amidst these gloomy times to remember that there's more to life than, well, the year 2020.
With a predictable storyline, the original movie wasn't a big hit at the box office. However, there are plenty of scenes and other elements that will keep you hooked. The spot on comic timing of Vrajesh Hirjee and Madhavan are endearingly funny. The mushy yet delightful music like classics such as ‘Zara Zara’ and ‘Dil Ko Tumse Pyaar Hua’ which continue to linger in the minds of romantic people and give a fuzzy feeling in your heart till date. Add to the mix the effortless, youthful chemistry between the two that looks so believable and real, it's easy to see why RHTDM as a movie developed a major cult following over the years.
Before we talk about the sequel, let’s quickly recap Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein.
In this sweet and uncomplicated love story, a boy from Mumbai, Madhavan, or Maddy in RHTDM, sees a pretty girl, Dia Mirza or Reena on a rainy evening, and instantly, it's love at first sight. Kudos to Mumbai ki barsaat for making this a memorable scene!
Maddy then makes plans to woo and impress the lovely Reena with the help of his father, played by Anupam Kher. For this, he assumes another identity, the identity of Rajiv Shyamrao or Sam (played by Saif Ali Khan), the man who Reena is supposed to get engaged to. Reena has never met Rajiv or seen him and has only spoken to him on call. After Maddy assumes Rajiv’s identity, their romance flourishes, but it's short-lived as the actual Sam shows up, leaving Reena heartbroken, shaken, and deeply conflicted. And the story then goes on!
What happens next? Does she fall in love with Maddy or choose Sam? You’ll have to watch the movie to find out.
All in all, Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein had all the ingredients of a good Bollywood rom-com. The film’s title ‘Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein’ perfectly sums up the relationship between the movie and fans. It’s safe to say that the film occupies a special place in the hearts of the fans.
With recent reports stating RHTDM movie makers are revisiting the idea of making a sequel comes as excellent news. Along the grapevine, we’ve come to hear that over the years, on and off, the makers toyed with different concepts. Finally, they’ve got a script that appeals to everyone. It’s a love story that will assume the natural progression and pick up from Maddy and Reena's lives in the present world. The movie is said to explore the duo's relationship from a more mature lens. The script is in the last stage of development.
