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

Disappointing
27 February 2004 | by (San Jose, CA, US) – See all my reviews

With all the slick and the appealing trailors, I was expecting a very fascinating film. However, I was sadly disappointed. From the trailors, it seemed as if Uditi rebels against her traditions right from the film's start, but her character was misrepresented. I was expecting something more along the lines of Jism. The best part of this film is its setting. It is very unique, and I have not seen it before in an Indian movie. Spectacular cinematography in the mounatainous Karachi depicting Tibet was absolutely breathtaking. The look of the film is completely fresh and new. However, when going to the real hero of the film, the story, there is the rehash of the same Bollywood storyline. An extremely different setting does not give an excuse to use the same conflicts that we have seen over and over again (boy meets girl, dad against their union, etc.). John's character was different and rather self-centered. Songs were excellent.
