Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi

The time is 1:30 am in the morning. I have just finished watching this awesome movie, and to be frank I could not wait till the morning to file my review report. I am still wondering how come I missed this movie which was released long time back. Probably got fooled by its publicity pictures in the media.

Don't be befooled and tricked by the publicity posters of this movie. Its neither a suspense thriller nor a sleaze show. I don't understand why they choose to publicise this movie the wrong way as if it was a modern gang war movie or something of that sort.

To the say the least it is a finely crafted and textured film. A hard hitting love story set in the political arena of the 70's. The movie follows the life of three not-so-ordinary people right from college, over a period of 10 years, while their destinies take shape. Set in the backdrop of an angst filled crucial period of history when flower power, emergency and rise of the Naxal movement clouded India, the myriad twists and turns evolve, change and mature the characters into symbols of the young and restless of the 70's. It reopens memories of a chapter in history closed long ago. A history which I have often read about, but was never born into to experience it first hand ..

Incidently Shiney Ahuja who played the role of Vikram got his debut Filmare award for his role in the movie :)
