Aashayein is a film directed by director Nagesh kukunoor. He is known to make films which talk about the real stories and spirit of life. This film is another attempt by the filmmaker on the same lines. Aashayein is not a bad film at all but at the same time it may not be called a good film either.
Rahul (John Abrahim) is a compulsive gambler who has always been on the losing side but finally lady luck smiles and he wins a jackpot of Rs. 3 crore, no less! He throws a party for his close friends and proposes marriage to his long standing girlfriend Nafisa (Sonal Sehgal). While she accepts it, he collapses on the ground. Doctors diagnose him with lung cancer. Knowing well he has just 3 months in hands to leave, he doesn't want to make a mess of Nafisa's life so leaves her leaving behind a huge bagful of money.
He heads straight to a hospice in Pondicherry to spend rest of his remaining days. After donating big fat sum to the hospice head (Prateeksha Lonkar) Rahul gets to stay in the hospice but on the condition that he will follow their rules. Out there he encounters a retired banker, G. Parthasarthi (Girish Karnad) who has lost his ability to speak, a middle-aged, high class, ex-prostitute, Madhu (Farida Jalal) who has AIDS, a 17-year-old rude but high spirited cancer patient, Padma (Anaitha Nair) and a child, Govinda (Ashwin Chitale), who loves comics, and possess spiritual powers.
How Rahul's approach towards his journey towards his inevitable death changes and how he manages to make a vital difference in the lives of all those he encounters at the hospice forms the rest part of the film.
Performance wise, John delivers a better performance than his previous works.Sonal Sehgal is okay. Girish Karnad, Farida Jalal and Prateeksha Lonkar are perfect. Ashwin Chitale as Govinda is natural. Anaitha Nair is just superb.
On the whole Aashayein is just an average film. Good to watch once.

Singers: Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Mamta Sharma, Aishwarya, Sonu Niigaam, Shreya Ghoshal, Sukhwinder Singh, Wajid, Master Saleem, Shabaab Sabri and Salman Khan
Keeping in mind the film that is set in a small town in Uttar Pradesh, composer duo Sajid-Wajid have composed a soundtrack for "Dabangg" that has mass appeal and is entertaining.
The album offers 10 tracks.
The soundtrack of the much-awaited Salman Khan flick opens with Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, a favourite of Sajid-Wajid, crooning romantic track "Tere mast mast do nain". The moderately paced track is likeable especially due to the brilliant vocals, and the change in tempo gives an edge to the track. This is a song you would like to hear.
The number has two more versions - one a duet with Shreya Ghoshal and the other a remix.
Then the album takes a turn and brings forward a completely different song "Munni badnaam", composed by Lalit Pandit and sung by Mamta Sharma and Aishwarya. The item number goes well with the character of the film. It is fast-paced and catchy.
This song too has a remixed version attached to it.

Producer : Shirish Kunder
According to Farah it is her husband Shirish Kunder’s script for the film titled Tees Maar Khan that did the trick. Says Shirish “I wrote this film with Akshay in mind. My first film Jaaneman was with him and we share a good rapport. Initially, I was supposed to direct Tees Maar Khan but since its our first home production, Farah and I decided that I’ll produce it and she’ll direct it.”
On Tees Maar Khan, Farah says “It’s my kind of film and has everything in it — action, comedy and full masala.”
With news of the Chopra’s ditching SRK for Ranbir and now Farah for Akshay, it will be interesting to see who SRK decides to work with in the future. It could be a blessing in disguise though, since SRK could very well risk working outside his group of friends at this stage of his career. Would be a refreshing change.
What’s also interesting is, the Akshay – Farah combo. If Farah’s success ratio in the past is anything to go by, Akki fans can rejoice!
What are your expectations from Tees Maar Khan? Comments below
