Earning over 280 million (US$4.2 million), the film went on to become the highest-grossing film of the year. The film was declared a blockbuster by Box Office India.[2] It received overwhelming response from the audiences and predominantly positive reviews from critics.

Salman Khan's performance earned him Best Actor nomination at Zee Cine Awards held in 2000. Meanwhile, Mohnish Behl received a Best Supporting Actor nomination at 45th Filmfare Awards for his performance. The film was also dubbed into the Telugu language and released with the title Premaanuraagam.[3]


Movie starts with the 25th anniversary of Mamta (Reema Lagoo) and Ramkishan's (Alok Nath) . They have 3 sons Vivek (Mohnish Behl) who is Mamta's stepson and disabled in one hand, because of a childhood accident, in which he had saved his brothers Prem (Salman Khan) and Vinod (Saif Ali Khan). This disability tends to put off most marriageable girls. Businessman Adarsh (Rajeev Verma) and his daughter Sadhna (Tabu) attends Mamta and Ramkishan's 25th anniversary and gets impressed by the warmth and solidarity of Vivek and his family. This leads to a marriage between Vivek and Sadhna.

Preeti (Sonali Bendre), doctor by profession, /\';]\and Prem (Salman Khan), a business student, have loved each other since they were children, but their feelings remain unspoken. The family announces their engagement soon after Vivek and Sadhana's wedding reception. The fun-loving and energetic pair, Vinod (Saif Ali Khan) and Sapna (Karishma Kapoor), also fall in love and get engaged. Ramkishan now feels that he can retire from the business and let his sons take over. He decides to appoint Vivek, the most experienced of his sons, as the Managing Director (MD) of his companies.

The twist to the family saga comes when Ramkishan's daughter Sangeeta (Neelam Kothari) and her husband Anand (Mahesh Thakur) are ousted by his elder brother Anurag (Dilip Dhawan) from his house and business. Sapna's father Dharamraj (Sadashiv Amrapurkar) and three socialite friends of Mamta (Kunika, Jayshree T. and Kalpana Iyer) convince her that she must compel Ramkishan to divide the house and business equally among his sons, in order to avoid similar complications in her family. Troubled by Sangeeta's misfortune, Mamta believes these arguments and begins to doubt her step-son Vivek's loyalty. Sadhana and Vivek decide to go on a self-imposed exile to Rampur (the native village of Ramkishan). At Vivek's insistence, a reluctant Prem takes over as the MD of the companies. However, Prem makes it clear that he considers Vivek the real leader and himself as just a deputy.

Meanwhile, the absence of Anand and Sangeeta creates a huge vacuum in Anurag's profession as well as his domestic life. He realizes his mistake, and his wife (Sheela Sharma) takes the initiative to call them back. With peace restored in her marital home, Sangeeta now convinces Mamta to reconcile with Vivek and Sadhna. A repentant Mamta rushes to Rampur, just when Sadhana is giving birth to a baby boy. At the end, Vivek takes charge as MD of Ramkishan's companies. Meanwhile, Prem and Preeti get married and so do Vinod and Sapna. The family reunites again.

It features playback singers Kumar Sanu (as Prem), Kavita Krishnamurthy(as Sapna), Alka Yagnik (as Preeti), Udit Narayan (as Vinod), Anuradha Paudwal (as Sadhna), Hariharan (as Vivek) and Sonu Nigam (as Anwar).
