I Love You is a 2007 Bengali romance film by Ravi Kinagi.[1][2] This movie has a similar plot to Maine Pyar Kiya (1989), directed by Sooraj R. Barjatya. The movie was actually inspired by the 2005 Telugu film, Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana. It also remake of Salaman Khan Blockbuster film Maine Payar Kiya


The film is a love story between a rich boy and a poor girl. Although they have been friends for years, Indra and Shantanu have grown apart and have little in common. The widowed Indra is a poor engineer who lives in a humble house in the country. Shantanu is a rich man with a vast business empire, with little time for old friends. However, when Indra prepares to work abroad, he turns to Shantanu to solve a problem. Will Shantanu let Indra's sister Puja (Payel Sarkar) stay at his house? Shantanu cannot turn down his old friend's request, and Puja comes to live with Shantanu's family. At first country girl Puja is ill at ease in the huge mansion. She is befriended by Shantanu's son Rahul (Dev), who assures her that he has no romantic interest in her and that a boy and a girl can be platonic friends. The pair share outings and confidences, and all seems to be going well. Then Rahul takes Puja to a party put on by some of his rich friends. They humiliate Puja and accuse her of scheming to marry Rahul. Puja leaves in tears and distances herself from Rahul. At that point, Rahul suddenly realizes that he has fallen in love with her. With aid of his mother (who likes the unassuming Puja) and his comic friend Manohar, Rahul sets out to win Puja's heart.

He succeeds, but their romance is balked by Rahul's father Shantanu, who does not want his son to marry a poor nobody. He prepares to send Puja home in disgrace. At this unpropitious moment, Indra returns from overseas. Shantanu accuses him of plotting to match Rahul and Puja. Indra and Shantanu quarrel; Indra and Puja then return to their village.

Rahul refuses to accept the separation. He defies his father and is disinherited. He goes to Puja's village and begs to be allowed to marry her. Indra, angered by Shantanu's accusations, says that he will allow the marriage on one condition: Rahul must prove that he can support a wife by his own efforts.

After this film, Dev became one of the best actor in tollywood.



The film was written, edited, and directed by Ravi Kinagi, and was a Shree Venkatesh Films production.


The music was composed by Jeet Ganguly, and sung by Shreya Ghoshal and Shaan, with choreography by Naidu.
