In the materialistic world of to-day, where the predominant majority of people worship, 'Mammon' and to whom money is an end in itself and not mans to an end, there is a microscopic minority of very few people who stand for Truth, Goodness and Human Values. 'Anjaana' is the story of one such man whom monetary enticements could never lure and who always championed the righteous cause. 'Anjaana' is true-to-life drama depicting a son's intense devotion to his mother who values mother's blessings as Divine Gift.

It is forceful story embracing the entire gamut of human emotions i.e. Devotion, Love, Truthfulness, Sincerity, Hatred, Jealousy and Greed. It is heart-rending tale of unique and exemplary love of brother towards his sister - Love which is death-conquering in itself.

It is tender love-story-Love so deep and genuine that it defies the forces of mightiest hurricanes of opposition. A love which certainly is a many splendoured thing.

It is and extraordinary experience of two souls engulfed in the flames of true love which scorches and burns the solid barricades of money and worldly status and blossoms forth in fulfillment.

It unfolds the base forces of Greed & Evil. The persons who consider money nothing short of God and would stoop to any depth to usurp it. How these characters realise their erroneous values and feel repentant is climaxed in most effective way in this Motion Picture.

'ANJAANA' is replete with rib-tickling and boisterous comedy situations webbed into the story in most convincing manner. It promises most melodious and enjoyable songs and sweeping Dance-number which would linger in memories for long time.

It brings to the screen breath-taking fight scenes filmed on the dangerous snowy peaks of Himalayan ranges and the grandeur and romantic aroma of Kashmir valley. And last but not the least, it is story of the faithful dog who lays down his life for his master and the honour of the household. 'ANJAANA' promises this and many more exhilarating and elevating experience of human life.
