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 unique visual experience.....
8 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

This film has a sort of small independent filmaker arthouse feeling to it. The story itself is quite simple and starts of with some very stunning visuals i the title song. Then begins the story with a violent murder. thus this is where Kaya(Udita Goswami) the budhist monk girl meets the dangerous dashing hollywood stlye cop(the Antonio Banderas of India-john abraham). After a gun battle in a dodgy carpark and a semi serious gunshot wound, begins the cop's escape from the corrupt and dangerous police force who want to protect their own backs! in the meantime Kaya is strugling with her love for shriven(the cop). The musical score is simply spectacular with earthy ethnic beats to match the spectacular locations where the film was shot! Some of the Scenes are simply stunning whereas a couple leave something to desire. on the whole a thouroughly enjoyable film that shows us that bollywood can be more than just mindless entertainment for the masses and that it sometimes has something of value to offer more films like this please bollywood needs them...
