YEH KHULAA AASMAAN (THIS OPEN SKY) cover image
Beautiful film, very nice production. I love how we see what is in the young boy's mind by the subtitles. Independent filmmaker Gitanjali Siunha, a grate from St. Martin's College of Arts, Lundon and Subhash Gha's Whistling Woods is in her 20s and this production is her first feature. This is a beautiful film with a wonderful script and outstanding performances. Every scene is lovingly photographed. The background music is also exceptional. The resolution between the boy, his father, and the grandfather is something that is cross cultural. Anyone from any culture can relate to the issues they deal with.
Seventeen-year-old Avinash, undergoing an immense emotional turmoil due to a failure and loneliness because of lack of parental support turns to his grandfather and visits him. Realizing the fragile mental state and shattered level of confidence, grandfather teaches him the lessons of life using a kite as a metaphor for life and imparts a strong set of values. A deep bond develops between them. Before the final kite competition, grandfather falls critically ill, leaving Avinash alone. Avinash not only wins the competition but also unites his estranged father with his grandfather and goes on to become a successful man. The movie expresses true meaning of life, relationship and freedom symbolized by colorful kites soaring into vast clear sky.
