Nisha also makes the decision to marry Rajesh out of genuine concern for her niece, not because of parental pressure. In short, Prem & Nisha are both characters who make their own decisions. They are also supported by parents/guardians who not only show genuine concern for the happiness & well-being of their children, but also maintain a firm grasp on their moral compass. Apologies for the long rant.

From the very moment Nisha storms on to the screen for the first time, she eschews the coy, shy-girl act most Rajshri heroines embody—whether it’s scolding Prem about his work ethic or her playful/friendly relationship with her father. She’s constantly teasing and poking fun at Prem right up to the penultimate portion of the film; as a way of showing her love, but also kind of asserting her dominance and strong personality (she would be a great dom in the relationship, but that’s a discussion for another time).

HAHK definitely has its regressive moments. I do recall one scene in the beginning of the film when one of the characters wards of a suitor for Mohnish Behl’s character because she’s “a girl who subscribes to modern/new way of thinking” or some such. But, ironically the film redeems itself through Madhuri’s character.

I have to admit I also haven't seen any films from the house of Brajatiyas. I did, however, grow up watching Sooraj Barjatya's films and I think since HAHK (his last real progressive effort), he's held to a "break ground with your films" kind of expectation and standard which isn't realistic. Prem Ratan Dhan Payo is a welcomed departure from his last two blunders and this is probably the most honest review of it I've read. Hat tip.
