Storyline

Gone were the days when Bollywood actor Shammi Kapoor used to sing, frolic and dance in Kashmir. Now the Kashmiris live in fear and death visits them every day. On one hand they have the terrorists, who want an independent Kashmir, free from any interference from India and Pakistan; And on the other hand they have the soldiers from the Indian Armed Forces, who terrorize them into releasing any information they may or not have of any terrorist activity. Amidst this live Islamic Adaa and her family. She meets with Hindu Captain Aman of the Indian Army and both fall in love. They want to get married, but there are complications. It is said that you can get away with a lot of things in Kashmir - but when you marry someone from a different religion - you commit the biggest crime on Earth. Especially if you are young woman named Adaa - who has a brother named Shakil Ahmed - a wanted terrorist. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Fabulous Movie
14 October 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Yahaan is a very refreshing movie. Out of the stereotypes. Shoojit Sircar must be commended for taking care that the actors don't go overboard with their emotions and play within the limit of characters. Another beautiful aspect is the picturisation.

Our Kashmir looks beautiful than Europe which it is anyways but the camera-work and picturisation has been done artistically.

I think it is a sign that Indian directors are going for sensible movies rather than meaningless movies with overdose of sentiments and melodrama.

All the actors have played their role within their limits. Minisha is a refreshing face. Jimmy Shergill looks good and fits the bill to perfection. The young brigade of directors Shoojit Sircar, Farhan Akhtar, Madhur Bhandarkar, Ashutosh Gowariker ... are showing the way by providing some quality entertainment......
