New Delhi, May 23 (IANS) This Friday, "Hum Tum" director Kunal Kohli is back with "Fanaa", the bittersweet love story of a terrorist and a blind girl.

Featuring Kajol and Aamir Khan, who will be seen as lovers for the first time on screen, the film is woven around terrorism. Although the subject matter sounds depressing it has harvested a lot of curiosity among movie buffs mainly because of Kajol, who is making a comeback with the film.

'Fanaa' is an Urdu word, which means destroyed in love. The film depicts the tale of a blind girl who discovers enchanting love that eventually destroys her.

The film focuses on the journey of Zooni Ali Beg (Kajol), a blind Kashmiri girl, who wants to discover life and isn't going to let her handicap stop her. She leaves home on her own and wants to make the most of it.

On this trip to discover life she bumps into a fun-loving tourist guide Rehan Qureshi (Aamir Khan) who seems to understand her better than anyone else.

Rehan's ability to see past her blindness and peep into her soul brings unlimited joys in her life and she starts cherishing every moment spent with him.

But her happiness is short-lived because she discovers things about Rehan that turns her life upside down. She finds herself standing at a crossroads and making the hardest choice of her life.

"Fanaa" shows signs of being an excellent treatment of love, life and terrorism. Its music is already a chartbuster and the key players in the film are some of the best performers in Bollywood.

With all these things going for it, the film can become an extraordinary cinematic experience for viewers and trade pundits expect it to push the right button at the box office.
