The title comes from an Indian proverb which roughly translates to "Extensive studying does not a wise man make. A man who knows a little about love is the wisest of all."

Namrata Shirodkar was offered the role of Nisha, the cameo played by Sonali Bendre in the film.

Raj Kanwar had started a film titled " Dhai Akshar Prem Ke" with Sanjay Dutt and Twinkle Khanna. When that film did not work out, he retained the title, changed the subject and signed Abhishek and Aishhwarya Rai.

In this movie Salman Khan had a cameo appearance as a truck driver. Interestingly at that time Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai were couple in real life.

Sonali Bendre made Cameo appearance in this movie

    DHAAI AKSHAR PREM KE is a hopelessly contrived and overly melodramatic musical romance from Bollywood, yet it deserves attention because of its central performance by the reigning queen of Bollywood, Aishwarya Rai. The beautiful Rai is seen to much better effect in such exemplary romantic spectaculars as HUM DIL DE CHUKE SANAM, TAAL, and DEVDAS, but she is quite compelling here playing a girl hopelessly in love with a man pining for someone else and ultimately forced, as she is in so many films, to marry a man she doesn't love.

    A perennial staple of the melodramatic form is the misunderstanding that escalates to a point where it becomes too late to tell the truth and straighten things out. Here a young college girl from a traditional family, Sahiba (Rai), is rescued, first from attackers and then from a suicide attempt, by Karan (Abhishek Bachchan), a young army captain on leave. He takes her home to her family's rural estate and is assumed to be her new husband and welcomed enthusiastically by all the relatives but the girl's angry father, Yogi (Amrish Puri), who had opposed her going away. With each heart-warming ritual and ceremony, Karan becomes more and more a part of the family even though he is in love with a girl back home and eager to get back to her. Gradually, Sahiba grows to love him and eventually tells him so and begs him not to go.

    To make a long story (167 minutes) short, Karan runs out on Sahiba only to learn that things at home are not what he thought they were. He returns to Sahiba's home to reclaim her, only to find her about to be married to the son of one of Yogi's business partners. Things take a particularly egregious melodramatic turn when two characters resort to some old-fashioned villainy (all that's missing are twirling mustaches), including tying up two of the protagonists to posts in a factory which is then set on fire. Having proved himself a man of action battling terrorists in the film's opening sequence, Karan gets an opportunity to be a two-fisted, pistol-shooting hero again in the film's implausible finale.

    With the exception of a magnificent ceremonial number performed by Rai and a number of ornately dressed back-up dancers at the film's midway point, the songs are rather simply staged and consist largely of fantasy duets performed by Rai and Bachchan against exotic Indian backdrops and such far-flung locations as Scotland and Switzerland. The abrupt changes in setting (and costume) are rather jarring and tend to break the mood of the film and slow down the narrative.

    The film remains worth seeing for Rai's moving portrayal of an anguished village girl who is both eager to break out of her traditional family structure yet is clearly nourished and empowered by the strong support she gets from her mother, grandmother, aunts and uncles. Rai's expressive eyes and mouth convey in heart-breaking fashion the gradual buildup of love for the man who rescued her and her anxiety at the prospect of him leaving. Even amidst the outlandish turn of events on display here, Rai proves what a superb film actress she is, expressing a full spectrum of emotions, from joy and contentment to fear and suicidal despair, never once striking a false note.

    As most Bollywood movies, the plot in this one is not complicated and quite predictable. Nice & shy guy met pretty girl who fell in love with him, but he loved the other girl back home; after the 'girl friend' in his heart got married, guy went back to seek the love he missed... The problem is that hero changed his heart for another girl too 'naturally' after his unspoken love failed. True, someone's loss is someone's gain. Yet what a condescending "gain" for the poor girl who didn't get his love in the first place.

    Most of the dancing scenes are imaginary and quite senseless.

    Aishwarya Rai was good at playing such poignant role for sure, but she needs more colorful characters to enrich her performance experience.

    What are they thinking about when they make drivel like this. No plot, just melodrama, same stereotypes and same typecast actors in same crap no plot movie.

    Abhishek doesn't belong in a role opposite Ash, he is better placed behind a terminal at Wipro Infotech.

    On top of that who is that gay dude who comes as Vik to marry Ash and take her money. He is the son of Bhushan from Buiniyaad , yet another historical typecast fellow.

    The only thong missing was Alok Nath as a a overemotional uncle of Ash.

    ...Aamir Khan

    Aishwarya stars as a pout-y university girl who accidentally witnesses the murder of one of her classmates and decides to run away from campus or risk being killed as well. Along the way, delirious from her journey and suicidal from thinking about what is to become of herself she meets a charming young man played by Abhishek Bachchan who saves her from these thoughts of suicide. Slowly and steadily (Chori, Chori, Chupke... ah never mind!) she finds herself falling in love with him. It also turns out that she'd once told her auntie on the phone that she was engaged to a man, just to spite her family, so it's no surprise that when the two love birds show up on her parents' doorstep the are mistaken for a couple who is betrothed. I hope this was a good synopsis because you'll have to watch to find out the rest of twists and turns that make up this adorable and fun-loving film! The song number entitled 'Mera ma-hi' is not to be missed! Aishwarya sizzles as a girl gushing about her lover!

    Karan (Abhishek Bachchan) is on leave from the Army, anxious to see his girlfriend, Nisha (Sonali Bendre). On the way home, he saves the life of Sahiba (Aishwarya Rai), and escorts her home where he is mistaken for her husband. Unable to clear up the misunderstanding, he leaves, but Sahiba has fallen in love with him.

    The plot, while sometimes unbelievable, is still attention-holding. The supporting cast, including Amrish Puri, Anupam Kher, and Shakti Kapoor, were excellent. Neither Bachchan nor Rai, though, expressed much emotion during the film, and they had little chemistry together. (This is surprising, as they married seven years later.) The music was somewhat above average; the choreography was not exceptional, but was enthusiastically danced. This would have been an above average film, had Rai and Bachchan been more lively.

    This is the first time that Abhishek and Aishwariya starred in a movie together and next to GURU this is their best movie so far. So the movie is ïnspired"by the Keanu Reeves film A WALK IN THE CLOUDS. so what. Nice to know is that Abhishek's ex-grilfriend Sonali Bendre also has a small role in the film. Special mention must go to the fact that this is so far the only movie and there never will be another in which you get to see Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwariya Rai AND Salman Khan together. Yes, you read it right. The title song of the movie which has approx 4 versions is quite nice on the ears. Anupam, Amrish, Shakti and all the other supporting actors are quite good. Abhishek made this movie in his flop period before he was successful but you can see that he is a chip if the old (Godly) block

    Wow...I sure was shocked by the incredibly low score of 3.8 for this film! While the film is far from perfect, it IS still very good and well worth seeing and I cannot understand the hatred viewers have for this film.

    "Dhaai Akshar Prem Ke" is a very unusual film. It's very much like taking a traditional Indian love story (complete with song and dance numbers) and combining it with "While You Were Sleeping" as well as "Rambo"--I kid you not! It begins with Karan (Abhishek Bachchan)on some sort of mission for the Indian army. His exploits in this opening scene would make John Wayne look like a sissy!! He is THAT macho as he kills dozens of AK-47-armed killers with just his semi-automatic pistols. Heck, he even catches the Indian flag in the process! He is, in many ways, like an Indian Rambo! He then is given leave from the military and this Captain heads back to a girl he loves. However, on the way he is pulled into the life of a damsel in distress (Aishwarya Rai--who later became Aishwarya Rai Bachchan when she married Abhishek in 2007). She witnessed a murder and is about to be killed to keep his secret, but super-macho Karan comes to the rescue. Now you'd THINK that that would be it, but soon Karan comes to her rescue again. It seems that Sahiba is depressed and doesn't care if she lives or dies. Why? Because her family has disowned her for refusing to marry the man they picked for her. So, being an all-around swell guy, Karan agrees to accompany her home and pretend to be her boyfriend. The problem is that the family assumes he is her new husband!! And, like in "While You Were Sleeping", the little lie steamrolls into a huge and occasionally funny predicament. So what's next? Well, much of it is very predictable and formulaic--you KNOW by the end of the film that Karan and Sahiba must fall in love. But, how they get there is kind of crazy--and once again, very Rambo-like!

    So is this odd film worth seeing? Absolutely. While the story IS very predictable in some ways, it also kept me guessing and was quite enjoyable as well. Why the strong dislike for it? I don't really know. Perhaps these folks who scored it low are a lot more familiar with Indian films than me--I've only seen about a hundred, as the films are still not that readily available here in the States (but it IS getting easier each year). Regardless, I liked it.

    By the way, if you do see this one, don't be surprised if in some of the song and dance numbers that the folks suddenly appear in other countries (such as Switzerland and Scotland). I've seen this several times before, such as in Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's "I Have Found It" and it's apparently not all that uncommon for Bollywood pictures. Weird, huh?!
