Storyline

Kaya, a Buddhist village girl from Spiti, is waiting to join the monastery. An elderly lama, dreams of his teacher's rebirth and Kaya is assigned to find and bring the reincarnated boy to the monastery. Kaya finds Llahmo in Mumbai and they plan their journey back to Spiti. On their way back, Llahmo witnesses the murder of a police officer. Police Officer Shiven is assigned to investigate the case. He forbids Llahmo from leaving town much to the resentment of Kaya. Shiven gets into danger when he realizes that some police officers are involved in the murder. He escapes with Kaya and Llahmo to Spiti. It is here that love blossoms between Kaya and Shiven and the movie changes track. Kaya's father does not approve of their love because he thinks that romantic feelings are sinful. Kaya is torn between love and celibacy and has to decide which one she wants. Written by Jism

A Monastery of a Movie.
13 June 2004 | by (Heraganahalli, India) – See all my reviews

We need more Pooja Bhat's since she has singularly elevated the Hindi Filmdom to a new level. She has a incredible feel for the content and Characters. The new Entrant Udita Goswami as "Kaaya" bristles with a subtle nuance of a performance.I reckon she has a great potential. Pooja Bhatt's another find John Abraham could do better if he can get out of his Jism-trademark-psychosis looks, but he is refreshing to watch after you are fed the filth in movies like "Baazigar" and Ugly morons like Sharukh Khan,Salman Khan,Shakti Kapoor,Johnny Lever who have polluted the Hindi Films so much so you need a toxic cleanup. After you see the likes of Goswamy,Abraham,Jr.Bachchan,Saif Ali Khan, you feel you were duped and taken for a long time.The Music has a feel of the Fathe Ali Khan's divine melody with the superb Background music and one number that makes owning the CD a must. The Script tries to rancour and instill some Monasteric Principals and does it well, albeit with drama, since love is universal, neither Bollywood nor Hollywood has any Stakes as to how it should be depicted. The Fight scenes are cleverly done especially the one with the Rope. As far as the Villain's in Bollywood they are dime a dozen we need these morons for the front benchers who comprise the "Box-Office", who dictate much of the Filth and contribute to the decadence which explains the flourishing of movies like "Main Hoo Na", "Devdas" etc, since unscrupulous Media has to decipher and dictate for the unsuspecting audience. Overhaul the credit goes to likes of Pooja Bhatt,Aparna Sen,Nagesh Kukanoor who have the courage to standup and call a Spade a Spade.
