The story of Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha revolves around Sanjana (Kajol), a young woman who has just been jilted by her fiancé. In an attempt to get over her heartbreak, she decides to travel to India to attend her cousin's wedding.

On the flight to India, Sanjana meets Shekhar (Ajay Devgn), a charming conman who confesses to being a smuggler. While Sanjana initially hates him for his dishonesty, circumstances force her to rely on him for help when her luggage and documents get stolen.

As they embark on a journey together, Sanjana and Shekhar find themselves getting closer to each other. However, things get complicated when Sanjana's ex-fiancé re-enters her life, and Shekhar's shady past catches up with him.

One of the highlights of the movie is its music, composed by Jatin-Lalit, with lyrics by Sameer. The songs are catchy and memorable, with the chart-topping track 'Tum Par Hum Hai Atke' becoming an instant hit upon release.

The cinematography by Nirmal Jani is another standout aspect of the film, capturing the beauty of India's landscapes in a vibrant and colorful way. From the bustling streets of Mumbai to the serene countryside, the visuals add to the movie's overall charm and appeal.
