DHAAI AKSHAR PREM KE is a sweet romantic film - is a study of human relationships and the most beautiful and tender of all emotions - the emotion of love which is the only inspiration.

Karan (Abhshek Bachchan) an Army Captain, is in love with the exquisitely beautiful Nisha (Sonali Bendre). When he is returning for his vacations, he meets Sahiba (Aishwarya Rai) who is as beautiful as a wordsworth poem, and who is in trouble. Karan promises to help her and goes with Sahiba to her house. There he meets Sahiba's lovable family which is the epitome of an ideal, happy family that knows and speaks only one language - the language of love.

There is Biji (Sushma Seth) - the ever smiling grandma who is more like a friend; Yagvendra Grewal (Amrish Puri), Sahiba's dad - a hard an with a soft heart; Simran (Tanvi Azmi), Sahiba's chachi who is also her best friend; Raunak (Anupam Kher) - the young at heart chacha. The family opens its arms and its heart to Karan and in the process waltzes into Karan's heart. Sahiba - fresh and innocent like the morning breeze - falls for Karan. Thus begins Karan's and Sahiba's journey of discovery - the discovery of love. Their journey is filled with music and dance, with tears - of joy and pain, with the heat of passion and desire, and with the most beautiful gifts - the gift of life.

This journey is titled 'Dhaai Akshar Prem Ke'.
