Dil Ka Rishta (2003)

A rich bachelor (Arjun Rampal) with plenty of time on his soft hands falls in love with a beautiful teacher (Aishwarya Rai) and consequently finds himself deep in a mostly cliché-ridden situation for his troubles, but at least they were used correctly. Interestingly, however, his rival in love is a hell of a nice guy, making it difficult to choose who to best sympathise with.
The tragedy is worked into the story well enough, but it could've been staged better. Afterwards, it asks a viewer to accept some wild turns in the plot. If you're in a forgiving mood and willing to go with the flow (i.e. not over-analyse too much) then I'd wager most folks won't regret giving it their time.
Rakhee Gulzar's 'angry mother glares' are memorable, like daggers in the soul.
