Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam was well received by most critics. However Aishwarya Rai was lavishly praised in her role which many critics considered to be sensitively played by the actress. The film also became a hit at the Indian box office but moreover in the foreign box office which was mostly credited to Aishwarya Rai's box office draw among NRIs. As such the film is considered to be a breakthrough role for her not only winning her critical acclaim but also cementing her box office stature. This was the first movie to star the then real life couple, Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai.
