Siddharth and his friends decide to leave Delhi and go to Calcutta to join the Naxalite movement and eventually get deeply immersed in the movement operating from the Bihar countryside.

One notices that life is unpredictable, it has the capacity to offer something that is totally unexpected.

I thought those were the most intense scenes of the movie.

The fight between pragmatism and idealism is quite entertaining to watch.

While life is unpredictable, people themselves are too -- they change.

Despite this, the film is well made and lacks the formulaic qualities you often find in Indian cinema and is a nice change of pace.

That they chased such a quite impossible dream to change the world is by itself a fascinating subject; and is portrayed profoundly, and nostalgically too.

The movie is also dull, and the story does not actually get us anywhere - except to various bedrooms.

The sub-plots are too contrived and don't add up to make a logical whole.

It was like a poetry, a stunning love story.

Dull and pretentious .

It's entertaining to those who want light entertainment, provides food for thought to those who are keen on watching films with ideological themes, and is an absolute must-see for die-hard romantics.

But as soon as the film begins, its intense subject begins to draw you in little by little.

The film is engaging right from the beginning till the end.

left unfulfilledFinally i would end this review with the incredible lyrics of the song 'Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi'A thousand desires such as these A thousand moments to set this night on fire Reach out and you can touch them You can touch them with your silences You can reach them with your lust Rivers mountains rain Rain against a torrid hill's cape A thousand A thousand desires such as theseI loved rain as a child As a lost young man Empty landscapes Bleached by a tired sun And then And then Suddenly it came Like a dark unknown women Her eyes scorched my silences Her body wrapped itself around me Like a summer without endPause me hold me reach me Where no man has gone Crossing the seven seas With the wings of fire I fly towards nowhere And you Rivers mountains rain Rain against a scorched landscape of painA thousand desires such as these A thousand moments to set this night on fire Reach out and you can touch them You can touch them with your silences You can reach them with your lust Rivers mountains rain Rain against the torrid hill's cape A thousand, A thousand desires such as these ...........

Fake, pretentious film that bites off more than it can chew .

A love story par excellence with a riveting music score .

Some scenes are breathtaking in their beauty.

Its hideous hearing her mouth cliché-ridden dialog like 'Whats up?

The direction of this film is intense and very well directed.

We are apparently supposed to admire the artsiness of it all, which merely means no good song and dance routine, which would not have saved the film of course, but might have at least alleviated the boredom.

Top-notch performances, touching back-ground score and its intense script take 'Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi' to never-before-scaled heights of cinema.

Both Kay Kay Menon and Chitrangda Singh deliver superb performances with Chitrangda looking stunning throughout.

this is by far one of the most pretentious films i have ever seen.
