A 2003 {{Bollywood}} film written and produced (but not directed) by Karan Johar. It is generally considered a good "introductory film" for those new to the genre.

It centers around business student Naina Kapur and her family and friends, all of whom are unhappy... until the outgoing Aman arrives in their neighborhood and takes it upon himself to better their lives. Wacky hijinks, romance, and a healthy dose of angst ensue.
-----
!!'''This film provides examples of these tropes''':
* BittersweetEnding
* BlitheSpirit: Aman.
* ChekhovsGun: Naina's complaint that the mailman continuously mixes up the last names Kapur and Kapoor.
** Also, all of Aman's conversations with Priya.
** And [[spoiler: Aman's habit of crossing his fingers when he lies.]]
* CoolLoser: Sweetu.
** Rohit too. Despite being a good catch, the women who express interest in him either have ulterior motives, or only do so after prompting.
* CrowdSong: "Pretty Woman," "It's the Time to Disco," and "Maahi Ve" all qualify.
* GenreSavvy: Aman. He instructs Rohit to woo Naina with a series of blatant cliches... and they ''work.''
** He also recognizes himself as the Hypotenuse of the LoveTriangle. [[spoiler: And his actions suggest he knows that the DeathOfTheHypotenuse is the best method of CleaningUpRomanticLooseEnds.]]
* DefrostingIceQueen: Naina.
* DisappearedDad: the late Mr. Kapur.
* DramaticIrony
* DrunkenSong: Rohit and Naina bellow the chorus of "It's the Time to Disco" as Aman drags them home from a bar.
* DysfunctionalFamily: the Kapurs.
* EverythingFades: The title translates to "tomorrow may not be."
* EvilMatriarch: Lajjo for much of the film.
* FamilyBusiness: The Kapurs have Cafe New Delhi; the Patels have Dial-A-Dhokla.
* FinalSpeech: [[spoiler: To quote one movie reviewer, "Madame Bovary has nothing on Aman."]]
* GoOutWithASmile: [[spoiler: Aman]]
* GoldDigger: Camilla.
* HandsomeLech: Averted with Rohit. His introduction sequence first shows him unsuccessfully trying to flirt with three different women, but it then shows him to be a gentleman, and rather sensitive at that.
* [[ShesNotMyGirlfriend He's Not My Boyfriend]]: Inverted. Naina pretends to date Rohit so Aman will leave her alone; however, Aman quickly figures out that they're really just good friends.
* HeartwarmingOrphan: Gia.
* HollywoodHeartAttack: Averted. [[spoiler: The film establishes that Aman has a heart condition, his heart attack happens during strenuous physical activity, and it's implied that he hasn't been diligent about taking his medication. Upsetting, yes, but hardly shocking.]]
* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: [[spoiler: Aman]] takes this to an extreme with ''everybody.''
* InnocentInnuendo: Rohit gleefully tells Naina that he spent all weekend in bed with "Laila." Cut to Rohit's bedroom, where we see Rohit... and Laila the golden retriever licking his face.
* {{Jerkass}}: Lajjo.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Becomes this at the end of the film.
* JustFriends: Rohit and Naina, until the RelationshipUpgrade.
* LoveTriangle: Aman, Naina and Rohit.
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Genders inverted; Aman is this to Naina.
* MeetCute: Aman and Naina do this twice. The first time is a CrashIntoHello, subverted because Naina doesn't see him. The second time, she opens her window to yell at Aman to keep quiet. The two have a silent mini-conversation with their eyes until Naina stomps away, at which point Aman begins the first CrowdSong.
* MistakenForGay: Aman and Rohit, by Kantaben and later Rohit's father. Subverted in that both Aman and Rohit are aware of the misconception.
* MoodWhiplash: A '''lot''' in this movie.
* MultigenerationalHousehold: the Kapurs.
* {{Narrator}}: Naina. The entire film is a {{Flashback}} as she tells the story to her younger sister.
* NiceGuy: Rohit.
* NonNaziSwastika: Naina and Jennifer paint a swastika in the window of their restaurant - in New York - as part of its revamping. No one comments on this, and the new concept is a huge success.
* SadBollywoodWedding: Where everybody cries.
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: Naina and Rohit.
* TheGlassesGottaGo: Subverted. Aman removes Naina's glasses for what he intends to be a BeautifulAllAlong moment, but it backfires because Naina really is BlindWithoutEm.
** Naina does eventually get contact lenses, however.
* TheMatchmaker: Aman.
* ThemeTune: the titular song.
* TheUnfavorite: Gia.
* WeddingDay
* WhiteShirtOfDeath: [[spoiler:Aman has an entire white ''outfit'' of death during the title song.]]
