Mela is a Bollywood action-adventure film released in the year 2000. The movie is directed by Dharmesh Darshan and stars Aamir Khan, Twinkle Khanna, and Faisal Khan in the lead roles. The film was highly anticipated as it was Aamir Khan's first commercial release after his critically acclaimed film, Sarfarosh. The story of the movie revolves around two brothers, Kishan and Shankar, who belong to a small village called Mandaur. Kishan is a simple and happy-go-lucky person who works as a driver, while Shankar is a mastermind who is involved in illegal activities. The two brothers are inseparable and share a strong bond of love and care.

However, their lives take a dark turn when Shankar gets killed by a group of thugs, and Kishan is blamed for the murder. Kishan is forced to flee the village to save his life, leaving behind his childhood sweetheart, Roopa.

Kishan arrives in a city called Mumbai, where he meets a street-smart and cunning thief, Narsimha, who becomes Kishan's partner in crime. Together, they plan and execute various robberies to make ends meet.

One day, Kishan and Narsimha come across a billionaire businessman, Raja Saheb, who is hosting a cultural event called Mela. The event promises a cash prize of Rs. 5 crores to the winner of the talent show. Kishan sees this as an opportunity to win the prize money and clear his name of the false murder charges. He decides to participate in the talent show by showcasing his excellent driving skills.

Meanwhile, Roopa, who has been searching for Kishan, finds him at the Mela and is heartbroken to see him in the company of Narsimha. She confronts Kishan and tries to convince him to return to his village and clear his name of the murder charges. However, Kishan refuses to leave the city, as he wants to win the talent show and prove his innocence.

As the story unfolds, it becomes evident that Raja Saheb is not as innocent as he claims to be. He has his own evil intentions and plans to use Kishan and Narsimha as pawns to execute his devious plans.

Mela is a classic Bollywood masala movie that offers its viewers a thrilling mix of action, romance, and drama. It has some high-octane action sequences, catchy songs, and a compelling storyline that keeps the audience engaged. The chemistry between Aamir Khan and Twinkle Khanna is excellent, and their on-screen romance adds a charming touch to the narrative.

The film also has some notable performances by the supporting cast, including veteran actors like Dalip Tahil, Tinu Anand, and Kulbhushan Kharbanda. Faisal Khan, who played the role of Shankar, received critical acclaim for his portrayal of a negative character.

Overall, Mela is a must-watch for all Bollywood fans who enjoy a good mix of action and drama. The film has all the elements that make for an entertaining cinematic experience, and Aamir Khan once again proves that he is one of the most versatile actors in the industry.
