Is Veer Zaara a good movie?

Yash Chopra and his son Aditya Chopra co-produced Veer-Zaara, a 2004 Indian Hindi-language period romance drama film directed by Yash Chopra. It stars Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta as the titular star-crossed lovers: Veer Pratap Singh (Khan) is a Pakistani politician’s daughter, while Zaara Hayat Khan (Zinta) is an Indian Air Force officer. Veer is imprisoned on false allegations, and his case is taken up by a young Pakistani lawyer named Saamiya Siddiqui (Rani Mukerji).

Supporting actors include Amitabh Bachchan, Hema Malini, Divya Dutta, Manoj Bajpayee, Boman Irani, Anupam Kher, and Kirron Kher. Chopra intended to return to filmmaking after a seven-year hiatus, but the screenplays he received were unsatisfactory. After thereafter, Aditya presented a few scenes from a screenplay he’d written, which piqued Chopra’s curiosity and led him to direct it.

During the Diwali celebration in November of 2004, the film was released. Veer-Zaara grossed over 976.4 million dollars globally, making it the highest-grossing Indian film of the year in India and abroad.
Critics praised the story, screenplay, dialogues, music, performances, and sensitive portrayal of India-Pakistan ties, and it earned mostly excellent reviews. Analysts regarded it as containing themes such as a shared Punjabi culture, secularism, and feminism, among other things.

The film won a total of four awards, including Best Film and Best Story at the 50th Filmfare Awards. The film was named Best Film, Best Director, Best Music Director, Best Actor, and Best Supporting Actress at the 6th IIFA Awards. It also received the National Film Awards for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment.
